Icadad, I'm pretty sure it was the Saints (2) that dropped to PWA and missed the playoffs last year.

Yep.  Gulls AA2 stuck in AA and mostly got their butts kicked.  The makeup of that AA2 team is very similar to this year's AA2 team.  The core of the previous year's SQA, plus a few under-age over-achievers and sprinkle in a few 2nd year PW players that didn't make the AA1 team. With the players lost to AA1 and the JD AAA minor, this year's PWAA2 team will likely struggle as well.


Probably pretty similar at most larger programs.


As for the multiple Gulls teams in divisions, ICA is partially correct.  When we have 3 teams in one division, usually one of them is near the top, one in the middle, and one struggles.  Also, pretty similar results at JK and JD when they field 3 teams in a division. Not sure why you think the Gulls are the only one.

So... We're new to this and we were wondering... we keep on hearing that PW AA teams might be forced to drop to A, how does that affect kids already in A? Does it?


Also, which teams are playing which tournaments this Labor Day?

It doesn't affect the teams declared for A.  Independently they will be evaluated whether they should be A/BB/B.

I'm sure there will be a few A teams that drop to BB too...


Pre-season will show a lot of teams where they belong, and they will make their decisions near the end of September.  Most relegations are willing ones that the programs ask for themselves. Very few are "forced" by CAHA/SCAHA.

Looks like most teams are either playing The Early Bird (Rinks) or Tinseltown. Should give everyone a good preview.

Last year there were some scrimmages scheduled with top level A teams for the teams on the AA/A bubble.  Seems like a pretty good way to know if the team is under pressure to drop.

Maybe "forced" was too strong a word...  Suggested or strongly recommended to drop.
Thanks for clarifying though.  I've heard of parents being really upset about dropping or the opposite, unhappy that they insisted in staying in a division.  I just wasn't sure how that really worked and how or who really made the decision.

The one reason a lot of teams are reluctant to drop (even when they totally should) is because dropping down a division allows families to change teams without prejudice if they so desire.  It basically voids the letter of intent they signed with the team, and allows them to switch.  When a team drops, and mom and dad think their little Gretzky is too good for the lower division, they typically leave the team and join up somewhere else.


On the flipside, few teams want to move up either, because they'd rather sandbag in a lower division, than be a mid-table or lower table team in a division up.

Any teams have scrimmages?


Jr Ducks 1 beat Jr Ducks 3 by score of 2-1 on Saturday.  It was a close game with good competition between the teams.

Yes, Ducks 3.


So assuming Ducks 1 would be the better of the 3 teams, sounds like the little guys did pretty damn good.  this weekend should be a good barometer for all the teams.

Ducks 1 is mostly '07s with 2 or 3 '06s if I remember correctly.  So it's not a stretch if the '08s did well against them.  That '08 team has played in Canada before, if they're still the same players.


But yes, both teams looked good when we scrimmaged with them before we signed with our team.

Looks like Kings 1, Gulls 2 and Wave 1 are all off to a good start. It will be interesting to see how things finish-up for the preseason standings come Oct 1st.  Any info on any teams potentially dropping? There are 22 teams in this division with four teams at 0-2.
