Basketball Ireland continued with the two Conference system for the National League Women’s Division 1 (Level 2) for the 2020-21 season, with five teams in the North Conference and six in the South.

Division 1 North consists of newcomers LYIT Donegal (Letterkenny IT), alongside Belfast Phoenix Rockets, Swords Thunder, Griffith College Templeogue, and Ulster University.

Division 1 South contains two Limerick sides, Limerick Celtics and UL Huskies, NUIG Mystics from Galway, Portlaoise Panthers (Laois), Tipperary Knights and Kerry side St. Paul’s Killarney.

Teams are to play each team in their own Conference twice and teams in the other Conference once, meaning a 15-game schedule in the North Conference and 16-game schedule in the South Conference.

The top three teams in each Conference qualify for the playoffs, with each of the Conference winners seeded directly into the Semi-Finals.
