The restructured EFHL is excited to announce the standards of play for game scheduling for the 2023-2024 season.
The EFHL Operations Committee and EFHL Board of Directors will continue to offer U11 competitive programs at HADP and Tier 1 with additional games and longer game slots for select divisions and are very please that Hockey Alberta is introducing the EFHL program across the province for U11 players.
Regular programming for U9 and U11 will continue to play 18 games over the course of the EFHL season with six tiering games and twelve regular season games built into two sessions throughout the year.
U13, U15 and U18 will continue to be offered a twenty game season consisting of six tiering games followed by a fourteen game regular season.
Additional games will be provided through participation in QEMHW and EFHL playoffs.
The EFHL Operations Committee and Board of Directors have approved regional conference play for U9 Tiers 3-6, U11 tiers 3-6 and U13 tiers 5-6 to reduce travel within the region, specific arenas for EFHL games to ensure that all facilities meet a minimum league standard, and the introduction of user fees for blackout dates and league game reschedules where league game swaps do not occur. These changes move towards reducing administration and providing a better player and parent environment.
