All B, A and AA players only will participate in an evaluation skate in at the location where they registered and will be drafted onto a team that will represent that rink. Teams will be formed from one pool of players registered in a division at one location. If there are not enough players at one location then teams can be formed between rinks that are close in distance. Each team will then be provided with a schedule that has two practices and 11 games (first round of playoffs included).
10U: 3-12 minute stop-time periods/50 minute games
12U: 3-13 minute stop-time periods/60 minute games
14U: 3-14 minute stop-time periods/70 minute games
18U: 3-15 minute stop-time periods/80 minute games
All teams will make the playoffs. Playoffs will be a single-loss elimination format and will be played at one location the last weekend of the league (tournament weekend atmosphere).
Players will be provided with a team jersey and socks prior to the first game.
PLAY WITH FRIENDS!
Although players will be evaluated and assigned to teams to ensure a competitive level within each division, we will try to honor requests for friends to play together on the same team whenever possible. Please indicate on your request on the registration form. NOTE: All players requesting to play together MUST attend the evaluation skate.
Every effort will be made to develop a consistent schedule that will end in mid-June. Games will be scheduled against teams drafted at Suburban Ice Macomb, Suburban Ice Rochester, Suburban Ice East Lansing, John Lindell Royal Oak, Suburban Ice Farmington Hills and Novi Ice Arena with minimizing travel time as much as possible. If necessary to play a game against another team that is further away, weekends will be used. No games will be scheduled on Memorial Day Weekend.
