The intent of the Game Limit Rule is to increase the practice to game ratio all all AHAI affiliate teams and to emulate the introduction of the USA Hockey American Development Model (ADM). Accordingly, AHAI has imposed team game limits at all USA Hockey age divisions.
Game limits include all league, tournament and practice games. All tournaments, both local and out of area will count as three (3) games toward the teams game limit. All playoff games for USA Hockey and AHAI registered League, State and National competition do not count toward the team game limits. The AHAI team game limits shall be mandatory for High School, Tier II and Tier III/ House/Recreation teams and recommended for Tier I teams. Click HERE for AHAI’s complete Rules & Regulations.
