The main Italian clubs competition is the Lega Nazionale Hockey Serie A1 (English Italian Roller Hockey League). It contains 14 teams.
The first stage (stagione regolare) is played as a regular league with each of the 14 teams playing each other home and away. A win is worth 3 points and a draw one. The last three teams are relegated to the Serie A2.
The 11th and 12th placed teams face two teams from the Serie A2 in a best-out-of-3 series. The winners remain in the top league.
The first eight placed teams of the regular season fight for the championship in an elimination format in a best-out-of-3 series. The final is played in a best-out-of-5 format with the winner claiming the national championship.
