Game structure and Format

  • 6U - Games are typically played in a x-ice format.
  • 8U In-House - Games are typically played in a mix of both x-ice and half-ice formats.
  • 8U Travel (CBHL) - Players will play in both x-ice and half-ice formats during in-house games.  CBHL league games are half-ice format.

Note...USAH and league rules do not permit 8U age group players to play in a full-ice game format.  8U players in their final year of age group eligibility are permitted to begin playing full-ice scrimmages in a transition format late in the season.  This rule is in place in order to begin introducing the full-ice format and concept to players in preparation for the 10U age level.
