All State based teams who have participated in the AZYHL leagues and are in 'good standing' are eligible to play and are included in the AAHA (AZYHL) State Tournament. As all teams are eligible it was decided that what advantage there may be, i.e. scheduling, that the teams should be seeded as they finished in league play, i.e. whatever advantage in scheduling there might be should be awarded to the 1st place team in league play.
After some additional discussion it was further decided that accommodations should be made for the teams traveling from out of the greater Phoenix area so as to not have them traveling during the week, where ever that accommodation could reasonable be made.
Finally due to scheduling, completely out of AZYHL's control, there arose a further conflict with the 2018 AAHA Player Development Camps so a further accommodation was made for teams impacted by those Development Camps.
And finally it should be noted that the Tie Breaker rules enacted for seeding in this Tournament and for the Tournament itself are as follows:
Item (#4) will be used for the AAHA (AZYHL) Tournament only.
