The playoffs began on April 16, 2012 and completed on May 23, 2012.[2] The top six teams from each conference competed for the Clark Cup.

This season was the 20th season in which the same team captured both the Anderson Cup and the Clark Cup in the same season. It was the third time the Green Bay Gamblers accomplished this feat (1995–96, 2009–10 and the 2011–12 seasons).
