Final regular season standings only determine placement in Round 1. After round 1 as Series Winners advance, regular season standings only determines Home Ice advantage.

The SRLL playoff tie breaker formula (Round Robins) is pre-programmed into the playoff standings.

These results are tracked in the Post Season GF% column found in the Division Standings/Series expanded results. Your initial view of the standings is NOT of the expanded standings.

You need to go to the Division Results page, select the Series you wish to view, and click the series letter on the flow chart. The expanded standings for that series will then appear. Now you can view the expanded results.

Teams are guaranteed two rounds of playoffs.

Round 1 runs from February 6 to February 21, 2017 (16 days).
Those teams who are successful continue on the Championship flow.
Those teams who are not successful continue on the Consolation flow.

Round 2 runs from February 22 to March 10, 2017 (17 days).
Those teams who are not successful are now eliminated.

March Break (March 11 to 19, 2017) ALL Playoffs games stop for March Break.

Round 3 (Finals) run from March 20 to March 31 (12 days).

REGULAR Season

The regular season began on Friday, September 30, 2016 and ended on Tuesday, January 31, 2017.

All teams play a 26 game season (13 Home and 13 away games) plus playoffs. As the number of teams in each age group varies anywhere from 6 to 24 teams, and fluctuates from year to year, the league cannot offer balanced schedules.

The SRLL regular season tie breaker formula has been programmed into the season standings and these results are tracked in the W% column.

TIME OUTS

As of April 2016 Rep Hockey (ETA - AAA and YSMHL -AE,A,AA) allowed a 30 second timeout in regular season games under "certain" conditions.
 
Currently the SRLL does NOT allow timeouts in the Regular season.


Team Balancing Requirements

Please note: this next section only applies to Associations having multiple teams playing within the same division.

The Simcoe Region Local League has balancing rules in place requiring Associations (with multiple teams playing within the same division) to not exceed a predetermined percentage spread specified in the constitutions policy set to keep one stacked team, from an Association with a number of teams in the same division, from running away with the division. This will require Associations to trade players among their own teams within that division prior to the November AND December deadlines each season if the winning percentage spread between the top and bottom team from that same Association is too wide, or "out of balance".

Associations are required to ensure all their teams play a certain number of games by November, and again by December, so they can monitor and report to the other league members at the monthly league meetings on their progress and all steps taken to achieve balancing.

All teams are to be balanced by certain deadlines, but once the teams are within the percentage spread requirement on the deadline, there is no requirement to maintain this spread after the deadline. Good coaching can improve team performance and is not penalized. The intent of the policy is simply to prevent any Association with multiple teams within the same division from entering a stacked team.

  Any Association with teams that failed to balance and are still out of balance by the middle of December each season will have been fined two times for missing two deadlines. Those Associations have until the end of the season to bring the unbalanced percentage spread back into balance.

If at seasons end, the winning percentage spread between the "unbalanced" top and bottom same Association teams exceeds the allowable spread set by the policy, the Association is fined one final time and faces the possibility of having one or more of those teams in the division denied entry (disqualified) into the playoffs.

This long standing League requirement was developed, voted on and inserted into the SRLL Constitution by the Association Presidents who created this League (including its predecessor) 30+ years ago.

Reminder:
All SRLL Home
AND Away games sheets are to be emailed by both teams to: gamesheets@srll.ca after every game.
