Notes

Since we only have access to retrospective CTRS rankings for the year, the strength of field is skewed upwards based on a team doing well at the Scotties earning CTRS points. For this reason, Olympic Trials ranks are based on the rank at the end of the previous season. If we had used the 2009–10 rankings for the Trials field that year, the field would have been 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8.
