How many games a week will we play?
This varies. It is dependent on the block of ice we get from the city. In the past their might be weeks where they give us 70 slots, in which case you might play 3 games that week. Other weeks we might get 25, in this case you could play one game. Our block of ice has improved every year in regards to times. We are working closely with the city to get a more balanced schedule. However they are can be limited by rink maintenance and closures.

The calibre of our league is increasing every year. The league is considered competitive and many of the players enjoy this high paced competition.
How does the Re-Tier work?
After a few games into the season we re-tier teams based on results. This is to try and even out the league. We get input from the teams and scout various teams. This is not an exact science, but we have had good results with the process we use. The decision of the league is final.
If I register as an individual which team will I be assigned to?
You will be assigned to a team that requires a player to round out its roster or a team made up of individual registrants like yourself. These teams have ranged in calibre from very strong to not so strong.
