Path for National bound teams playing in AHF?
Topic: May 23, 2022, 12:13:41 PM
AHF and the Atlantic District have said nothing and posting nothing regarding this.  What precisely is the path for teams not playing in DVHL because they were told they can only play in AHF?

If you're in the AHF are you no longer part of the Atlantic District?

The AHF swears that they have a path to Nationals.

The path is the Independent Playdown.  They have had for for a few years for Tier I.  Have not needed one for Tier II in the past.  Now they need one.  Easy enough to add.

Teams would come out of the playdown into the district tournament.

The devil is in the details.  I wonder how many teams will come out of the playdown and how many will come out of the district tournament?  One each?

There is no path in the current rule book, they're going to have to add one. Like others have said, they would likely add a qualifying tournament. It will be interesting to see how seeding works since AHF plays an unbalanced schedule. My uneducated guess is that they would use a Krach rating? I can see the future threads now, when teams get dropped in the seeding based on the strength of their schedule...there will be some unhappy campers.

The "playdown" is to qualify for the District tournament....

Will the top DVHL team get a bye to Districts like they do know? Would make sense to just have the winner of the DVHL and the winner of the AHF play best of 3 for Nationals. Would also help with the banner/hat/cake confusion.

The AHF has 3-4x the number of teams at National Bound AA levels.  DVHL promoted A teams to make them AA.  District wants to represent well at Nationals.  This is a silly thread - old news.  There will be a fair playdown between the leagues.  People should be way more concerned that the DVHL won't be around in a year or two.

I noticed that AHF is running their own ref clinics but I think that normally when my son registers as a ref it's through USA hockey and the clinic is run by the district.  Is AHF part of the Atlantic District / USA Hockey?
