Category: Spring/Summer AAA Hockey – Girls Novice (2011-12) & Atom (2009-10) / Boys (coed) Pre-Novice (2013), Minor Novice (2012), Minor Atom (2010), Minor Bantam (2006)

As the continued leader in hockey programs and tournaments anywhere, our unique division-tiering strategy will be employed to ensure all teams the best possible experience, value and competition.

Divisions will be tiered using one of the following methods:

  • Separate divisions of play (ex. D2 and D3) for the entirety of the tournament (round robin and playoffs). Teams should indicate if they are a D2 or D3 team when they apply (e.g. mostly Tier I players, or mostly Tiers II/III players)
  • Separate divisions of play for the playoff rounds. In this format teams will find their own way into a division of play for the playoffs, based on their round robin record.
  • One division of play for all teams should that be determined as the best option.
