2018-19 AAHA Travel Hockey State Tournament Seeding & Tournament Tiebreaker Rules

All State based teams who have participated in the AZYHL leagues and are in 'good standing' are eligible to play in and are included in the AAHA Travel Hockey State Tournament. As all teams are eligible it was decided that what advantage there may be, i.e. scheduling the tournament, that the teams should be seeded as they finished in league play, whatever advantage in scheduling there might be should be awarded to the 1st place team in league play.

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.

The Tie Breaker rules enacted for seeding in this Tournament and for the Tournament itself are as follows:

  1. Most Wins 
  2. Head-to-Head - results (outcome) of games played Head-to-Head.
  3. Goal Differential - Goals scored minus Goals allowed
    • A maximum of a seven Goal Differential in any game be used in determining the Goal Differential.
  4. Goal Quotient - Goals scored divided by Goals allowed
    • A maximum of a seven Goal Quotient in any one game shall be used in determining goal Quotient. 
  5. Coin flip

2018-19 AAHA Travel Hockey (AZYHL) State Tournament Playing Rules

  • All games are to be played as scheduled and will be played by the AZYHL Regular Season rules which include; a runtime third period if the game curfew is in doubt; a runtime clock as soon as a six goal differential is achieved; and no Overtime or Shootout.
  • In the 12U Elite Division which is a best two out of three game series the first two games can end in a tie, but a tie and win is a series win. If there is a third game and it should end in a tie, there will be Overtime and a shootout if necessary.
  • Championship/Consolation Finals Tied Game:
    • If the Championship/Consolation Final game in any Division of the State Tournament is tied in regulation time there will be a 5 minute “stop time” sudden death Overtime period played 4 on 4. 
    • If at the end of the 5 minute Overtime period the two teams are still tied there will be a three man shootout. If still tied it will then be a sudden death shootout. In the event of a Shootout the Home team will get the option whether they shoot first or last. 
    • Any players in the penalty box at the end of regulation time must finish serving their penalties.
    • If a team should have two players serving penalties at the conclusion of regulation time, the Overtime will begin 5 on 3 until both of those penalties have been served. At the first available whistle after the penalties have been served the teams will go to 4 on 4.
    • If a shootout is necessary, the Head Coaches may choose any three players to shoot, but no player may shoot a second time until all available non-goalie skaters have had at least one chance to shoot.  
    • Any player still serving a penalty at the end of the Overtime period is not eligible to participate in the shootout.
    • If the 3rd period ends being played as “run time”, the Overtime period will be “run time”. If the 3rd period ends being played as “stop time”, the Overtime period will be “stop time”. Which ever way the Overtime starts “stop time” or “run time”, the whole 5 minute period will be played using that method.
  • If a shootout is necessary, the Head Coaches may choose any three players to shoot, but no player may shoot a second time until all available non-goalie skaters have had at least one chance to shoot.  Any player still serving a penalty at the end of the Overtime period is not eligible to participate in the shootout.
  • ALL Teams must have a copy of their USA Hockey 1-T Roster, dated Dec 31st, 2018 available for roster Verification. The Team Manager must have access to the 1-T roster at the rink. AZYHL rules do not allow a player roster after Dec 31st, 2018 to participate in the AAHA (AZYHL) State Tournament.
  • The line-up on the scoresheet must NOT include any player not on the teams 1-T Dec 31st, 2018 roster.
  • ALL scoresheets must be signed by the respective Team Head Coaches and the Referee for the game to be official.
  • Each team must provide a penalty box attendant for all Tournament games at all Levels. The penalty box attendant must be an adult (18 years old or older). Injured or otherwise not playing members of a team may NOT act as a penalty box attendant. All penalty box attendants must have the SafeSport certification and the proper and appropriate Background check.
  • Only 1-T Rostered USA Hockey certified Coaches are allowed on the bench during the game. Other team parents, team photographers/videographers or anyone else not on the Teams 1-T Roster as a team official  are not allowed on the bench under any circumstances.

 

Duties/Responsibilities of the Home team's Team Manager:

  • Pick up the USA Hockey official scoresheet from the rink Administrative Office
  • ensure that the scoresheet is properly filled out for your team and signed by your Head Coach (would strongly recommend that as the Team Manager you have a supply of official scoresheets).
  • Distribute to the Visiting team's Team Manager at least 30 minutes before game time, for them to properly fill out and sign.
  • Pick up the scoresheet from the Visiting team's Team Manager and deliver it to the scorekeeper at least 15 minutes before game time.
  • After the game collect the scoresheet from the scorekeeper, ensuring that it has been signed by the Referee and that all of the officials, including the scorekeeper name's are printed on the scoresheet. If they are not return the scoresheet to the scorekeeping requesting that this be done.
  • Take a photo of the scoresheet and immediately send to asyhlscoresheets@gmail.com. Before sending be sure to have saved the photo as 'original' or 'actual' and confirm that the photo is readable. If the Referee has done a write-up on the back of the scoresheet be sure to have a photo of both the front and back and send both.
  • Confirm that "BOTH" dressing rooms have been properly cleaned up. If not please send a note to azyhlscoresheets@gmail.com. DO NOT clean the dressing rooms the rink will do that, but they also may charge us if the dressing rooms are not left in a reasonable condition.
