How we balance our teams…
Our goal is to create a league where teams are close, and the games are good competitive fun. Close games tend to bring out the best in any athlete, regardless of age. To promote balanced teams, we will do the following.
Around May 1st, all registered players will be placed on “Exhibition Game Teams”. This list will be posted on the HMBHL website. The Exhibition Game Team Lists will be based on what we learn about the players past ball hockey experience and level of play. In early May, teams will play an exhibition game where we will help ensure everyone has the proper equipment etc. and watch everyone play. We will use this additional information to adjust the teams for the season. That means some players will change teams after the Exhibition game. Please prepare your players for this and help us make this process efficient. If your player is switched to another team, it is because we think this will help the league for all players. All players must agree to cooperate with the balancing process, and we thank you.
Official Team Lists will be posted for the regular season
Based on what we learn, we will do our best to form balanced teams. Team lists will then be posted on the website within 72 hours of the Exhibition Game. The regular season will start on Saturday May 7th.
Games will be played Saturday 9:00 AM – 2:00 PM. One weekday evening game will also be scheduled. Likely Monday or Wednesday evening ( we are at the mercy of HRM for scheduling)
