CWAEH League Format
Submitted By CWAEH on Wednesday, January 1, 2014
The CWAEH league season starts the weekend after Thanksgiving and ends the weekend before March Break.

After an exhibition round robin teams are divided into pools for the playoff round. 

Each division (Novice, Atom, PeeWee, Bantam, Midget) generally has 8-12 teams from across the three centres. For the 2013/2014 season, all divisions have 10 teams.

Exhibition Round
All teams play an exhibition round - playing each team in their division once. The exhibition round finishes in the first weeks of December.

Playoff Round
Based on the results of the exhibition round, each division is split into two pools. The pools are determined by the Local League convenors from each centre, with the goal of playoff rounds that are as competitive and evenly matched as possible. The convenors meet to determine the pool divisions the week before the last exhibition round. In some cases a final decision on the pools may be delayed until after the final week of exhibition play. The schedule for the playoff round is available approx 1 week after the pools have been finalized.

The playoffs then consist of a double round robin (home and away against each other team in the pool). The playoff rounds start in the last weeks of December, and continues through to 2 weekends before March Break.

Pool Championships
The top two teams in the pool play in a Championship game scheduled on or around the weekend before March Break. The first place team in the playoff round is the home team for the Championship game.

Rankings within the pool will be determined using the following criteria; if two or more teams are tied after the first criteria, the tie will be broken with the second criteria; if still tied look at the 3rd criteria etc.
  1. Total points in the playoff round (2 for win, 1 for tie)
  2. Wins between tied teams during the playoff round (head to head)
  3. Total wins in playoff round
  4. Differential between tied teams (i.e. if they each won one of the two games in the playoffs, the team who won 4-1 would be ahead of the team who won 4-3)
  5. Differential overall (point spread across the whole playoff round)

There is a Red Pool and a White Pool Champion in each division.

Wherever possible, all other teams not involved in Championship finals will have an exhibition game scheduled for that last weekend before March Break.
