the real question would be why, there are only nationals at AA so sandbagging at a gold or silver level is meaningless.

one reason would be to avoid having 3 teams at AA.

That’s a good problem to have. But doesn’t the club determine the playing level? 

Also, this must be Team Philly that you are referencing?!?

It's funny someone would even make that comment.  Last year at 16 they had 2 teams at AA, 2 at gold, and 1 silver.  They dominated AA, one of them to nationals, the two at Gold dominated and teams thought they should have been playing in AA.

From my understanding from our club is that the club determined where you played in the parity. The AHF can move you up, down or leave you where the club put you based on how the team played in the parity.

After talking to parents on our 16 Gold team I watched Team Philadelphia's games on live barn. I could not believe the missed passes and sloppy play from them. I know a bunch of them were on 16 A American last year, some were bantam and some left overs. They were all good teams, something didn't look right.

Did the AHF use something like the Krach rating system for playoffs last year?  Sandbagging won't help if your strength of schedule is low.

with 3 AA teams at the 16U and no team practices yet, the TP gold and silver are exactly what you'd expect, the 4th and 5th best rosters at the age group from the club yet they'll still dominate the AHF this season.
