To Coaches, Managers, Schedulers, Division Commissioners, Tournament Directors, BTHL Association Reps and Board:
Thanks to all teams for getting their final game results entered quickly, and for your patience as we finished reviewing the schedule. We are scheduling over 100 games at six different rinks on nine pads, as well as arranging for trophies, score sheets, referees, and apparel vendors. Also thanks to those who contributed helpful suggestions for improving the schedule.
With the final division standings now completed we can release the schedule for the End of Season tournament.
There are some changes from the original schedule published. Please check your schedules. Several teams were switched to a higher or lower division for better competitive matchups based on regular season results. In some cases this added or removed teams from the division bracket which caused schedule adjustments for more or fewer games. We also worked to eliminate Fri-Sat-Sun games that were originally possible for some teams.
We are trying a couple of different formats to see what works with the hope to improve the tournament format in the coming seasons. Bantam AA will play a crossover format where the North and South divisions were seeded 1 vs. 4, 2 vs. 3 etc. Peewee AA Gold and Silver will play together in one division seeded based on league game results, coach input, and also looking at My Hockey rankings as additional information.
We have double checked the games and believe there is adequate time between games and no overlaps but if you find any issues please notify email@example.com. We will not be changing anything other than scheduling errors at this point.
Schedules will be loaded into the website within the next 48 hours. This is a separate manual process so please be patient. Before games check schedules at rink for any last minute changes.
