The "2011 NAHL Robertson Cup Championship Tournament" will be the 36th edition of the annual round-robin tournament that decides the season champion. The tournament will be hosted by the Topeka RoadRunners at the Landon Arena in Topeka, Kansas. Due to many new expansions for the 2011 season, the NAHL announced a new format for the tournament. If the Topeka RoadRunners, hosts of the 2011 Robertson Cup Championship Tournament, win the South Division playoff championship, they will advance to the tournament along with the three other playoff champions from the Central, North and West Divisions.

If a team other than the RoadRunners wins the South Division playoff championship, Topeka and the two divisional playoff champions with the most points during the regular season will advance to the Robertson Cup Championship Tournament. The two divisional playoff champions with the fewest points during the regular season will play a best-of-three series with the winner securing the fourth and final berth to the tournament.

The Robertson Cup Championship Tournament will begin with a three-day, three-game round robin. The top seed (most points) at the conclusion of the round robin will advance to the championship game. The second and third seeds at the conclusion of the round robin will play a semifinal game with the winner advancing to the championship game.
