Simcoe Region Local League

Welcome to the 2016-2017 Simcoe Region Local League season.

As per the OHF Directive Body Checking was removed from all Recreational Hockey in 2015 played within the OMHA.
(House League, Local League, Rostered Select and Minor Development)

REGULAR Season

The regular season begins on Friday, September 30, 2016 and ends 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 point spread set to keep one (stacked) team from running away with the division. This will require Associations to trade players among their own teams in that division prior to the December deadline each year if the point spread between the top and bottom team from that association is too wide, or "out of balance".

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

By the middle of December each season any Association who still has teams out of balance face fines.

At the season end, Associations face the possibility of having those teams in the division denied entry into the playoffs if the point spread between the top association team and the bottom same association team (multiple teams playing within the same division) exceeds the allowable point spread set by the constitution.

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) many years ago.


PLAYOFFS
(to be updated in late December)

The playoff season begins Monday, February 6, 2017.
The SRLL playoff tie breaker formula has been programmed into the playoff standings and these results are tracked in the Post Season GF% column found in the Division Standings/Series expanded results.

Teams are guaranteed two rounds of playoffs.

Round 2 runs from February xx to March xx, 2017.
