There will be no need for regional play-ins, since a number of teams have indicated they do not plan to participate in the regional, district or state tournaments this year.
Should Districts still happen, there will be 8 teams or less at each level.
The tournaments obviously have to be delayed, and the District 8 Council met on Sunday, January 3 to set new tentative dates which are displayed on the calendar to the right.
These dates may change, based on new directives from the Governor or MAHA.
If the governor allows us to play hockey after January 15, the regularly-scheduled CUP League games will be played if at all possible, and associations can try to re-schedule missed games.
We just aren't going to be keeping standings or awarding trophies, because it is going to be impossible for everyone to make up all the games that were missed, and so we will not be able to fairly determine champions.
There is not enough time to play enough games, so we will not be collecting scores, keeping standings, or awarding trophies this year.
If/when the lockdown is lifted, we hope that associations will be able to play as many games as possible that were scheduled, for fun and as "exhibition games."
