The league stage which most of the time was interrupted by Covid-19, was topped by Chiefs after combining the under-13, under, 15 under-17, and under-19 points, meaning they had to face the club that finished fourth, and it was the Brazilians.

Chiefs under-13 finished top of the log with 33 points, while under-15 came third with 28 points, under-17 also finished third with 25 points, and under-19 came first with 30 points to see Amakhosi finishing at the top of the log.
