Black Bear Age Waiver
Topic: February 07, 2024, 09:55:55 PM
Can anyone please explain playing up an age level to me and who actually guides this and decides how many kids can play up? Can kids play up if it is a "pure team?"  Can players play down if it is a minor pure team? Does it matter if the team is Tier I vs II? Is it USA Hockey, local league (AHF, NJYHL, AYHL, etc) or based on the organization itself (Black Bear). Just looking to clarify what is a murky mess and understand. Would love a link to an actual policy on this :-)

Not looking for benefits/downsides to it. Not even for my kids. Just trying to understand the drama around our rink and get a clearer picture of what our teams will actually look like next year.

AAHA District decides. Kids can play up a classification (mite to sq, sq to pw)if district approves, must be signed off by rink hockey director. No 12 year old can play up to Bantam, ever. Any kid can play up within Sq and PW without district approval. 2 Major kids can play down on minor team Policy on District website.

Not true on 12U playing up to Bantam.  I always thought that was the rule as well, but I'm aware of a couple in AHF the past two years... no idea how it got approved

It did not get approved. If teams get caught they are in serious trouble. Rule is US Hockey, not districts. It is because of checking. AHF is not district sanctioned league, but is USH sanctioned. Report them!

There are always exceptions.  I know of one 2011 who played up (Bantam Minor).   There may be others.

I think this rule is an AAHA district rule. There was a 2011 player playing on our 2010 Bantam team. The district found out, kicked him off team and then would not allow him to play for 2011 Tier 1 team. He left the rink and went somewhere else. The player you have above is not in the AAHA. I thought this was a US Hockey rule though. AAHA says no exceptions for 12 year old playing up at Bantam.

Almost every AAHA "Rule" has language that allows an exception based on some grand exalted minister of hockey's judgement or decision, for those enterprising enough to have a favorable audience or influence over said grand exalted minister of hockey. 

... after all, it is the exceptions that make the rule, eh? ....

Sometimes, "It's the Science" just isn't good enough.

AAHA 12 year old/Bantam rule literally says "no exceptions". Read the damn rule before you post!
