How many teams got kicked down to A last year?  There were none at the Bantam level.
Saints got dropped to A last year and that they weren't dropped lower might have been generous.
I believe, not checking the stats, they only won half their games.

I wonder how many parents whose kids just made an AA team understand that their AA aspirations may soon come to an end over Labor Day, Flighting, Relegation weekend.


OC will likely be first to drop down regardless of who is coaching .

 ???  Ummm ok?!  What would lead you to make that comment?  Honestly, I would like to know. Seems you have some information.  Will be interesting to see how your prognostication unfolds.

Starting to wonder if there will be a jamboree this year.  Various local tournaments are offering AA divisions in Bantam and/ or Pee Wee over Labor Day.  Any one hear anything recently?

SCAHA said in there last meeting they were thinking of getting rid of it. Mentioned forcing teams to A.

I can say with absolute certainty that there will be a jamboree this season.

Too much money not to do it...


Cant wait to hear all those parents fuming over all the money the spent going to Vacaville / San Jose just to get destroyed and bumped down to A!

If they ARE getting destroyed...why shouldn't they go down to A (or Flight 2 if that makes everyone feel better). There is also a simple way to avoid the frustration at all...honestly evaluate the players/teams in your club and make a better effort to place them where they belong vs. where the parents THINK they belong. Communicate to your parents accurately and honestly what level team you think you may have this year and what and where you will play based on the team you have. That way, there will only be a few on the bubble that will still try to make it to AA and get bumped down instead an entire leagueision. JMHO

You must be new to SOCAL hockey...can't disagree with anything you said but that is now how it works. Its all about the money...


Sure there are always examples of clubs who wont try and play a higher level but then they are the ones who lose the kids whose parents feel (something right sometimes wrong) their kid should be playing higher.

Doubt anyone gets relegated to A.  That would constitute releasing players, the hope they will play A.  ALWAYS, AND I MEAN ALWAYS will be those few parent who think their , Lil Gretzkys are too good for A. One or two players leaving could lead to a mass migration  from said team, possibly causing teams to fold.....doubt that happens.

The only way a team or teams get bumped down to A is if turns out AA has 3 levels of teams...Top, middle and bottom. Top teams are the ones destroying or beating badly the middle / Bottom teams...middle teams beat up on the bottom teams. Easy to bump the bottom teams...but, if there is only the top and the rest that are close then no one gets bumped.

That and we all know that there are tons of roster spots in AA

The best is when they leave the team that dropped to A, join a different rink, and end up playing A anyways!

...not new to SOCAL hockey.....but I slept in NORCAL hockey last night! ;-)


I am well aware that it IS about the money many times. Also that my "suggestion" was probably a pipe dream. However, can you really bitch about how bad CAHA is doing when they are actually fighting what the individual clubs are doing at every step? Also, I am sure EVERY club has its own specific agenda, making CAHA's job like herding cats...


I am not here to say CAHA is perfect...just that they are trying to work with a bunch of broken parts...and doing the best that they can. I thankless job I am sure...
