Tiering and Divisions

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)
  • One division of play for all teams should that be determined as the best option


U8 – U11: 3×12 minute stop time periods.

U12 – U15: 2×12, 1×15 minute stop time periods.

Should COVID-19 protocols allow, body checking will be permitted at the Boys U13 levels and above.
