What Is Re-Tiering And How Does It Work?


Before the season starts, an initial tiering is done based on the number of teams registered and the skill level identified by the coach and/or players during the registration process.  It is our goal to make 3 on 3 hockey competitive, entertaining and meaningful for players, coaches and parents.  Bear in mind that we do not have try-outs in this league and that the coaches/players self-identify their skill levels.

An initial schedule is drafted to give each team approximately 5 games.  After these games are played, we look at each teams’ performance to determine whether or not the competition in their division is too strong or too weak for their level of play.  Also taken into consideration are requests we receive from coaches to move their teams.  Re-tiering involves a completely new schedule and while it may not sound like much on the surface, we have hundreds of ice slots spread out over various City of Edmonton arenas. and must take into consideration appropriate times for age groups. Referee assignments is another situation that has to be rescheduled as well.

Some things to keep in mind when registering a team so that we can offer this benefit for teams:

  • The use of underage players should be avoided if possible. We take this into consideration when re-tiering. For example: if your team moves up a division, that underage player may be playing against players 3 years his senior. This would occur when a team moves up a division and another team from an older division moves down into that same division with the underage player. 
  • The process for selecting teams to re-tier is based on: stats; directors personally watching teams and input from all coaches. This is not an exact science and it is our hope that we can accommodate everyone in this process. Accuracy of information when registering is a key part of this process as well, in regards to level of hockey played as well as all other information on the registration form.

 Coaches are contacted prior to any movement of their team. Once all factors are considered, the team placements are confirmed and the remainder of the schedule is done up and posted.  There are many factors that can affect a teams’ performance and while we attempt to take into consideration many of these, we cannot account for all of them.

We may also re-tier for playoffs. This is to even out the competition level of each division and make the playoffs more enjoyable for everyone.

What Are Dedicated Spares?


Dedicated spares are players who have registered to spare for a particular team.  Dedicated spares pay a $25.00 registration fee. This is to cover insurance and uniform costs. In the event that they do not play a single game, this fee will be refunded. We ask that spares  pay the coach $20.00 when called to play.  We do not regulate or collect this.  It is incumbent on the coach of each team to determine if they are going to collect this money and if so, how it will be spent.

 All dedicated spares should play in the division which is of equal caliber or better than their skill level.  Our divisions are split based upon skill level so we may have U15 Div 1, U15 Div 2 and U15 Div 3.  All players are in the same age group however their skill levels can be quite different. 

 A player can spare for a team in a higher division but at no time may a player spare for a lower division.  For example:

  • A U15 minor player may spare for a U15 Div 1 or 2 team but a U15 Div 1 player may not spare for a U15 Div 3 or 2 team.

What are Free Agents

and Free Agent Teams?


 If a player does not have a team to play on they can register as "free agents” and we will place them on a team.  We do accept friend requests and we'll endeavor to place them  on the same team.

 Players will initially be placed on teams but this may change once all registrations are processed. Prior to scheduling games, we review the free agent teams and try to ensure they are balanced in skill level.  These teams may consist of players with varying skill levels.

 Free agent teams are dependent upon volunteer parents to act as coaching staff.  Coaches need to be at least 21 yrs. of age
