Minor Tournament Ranking Process

To see ranking process for tournaments, please download the following file: Rankings Process for Provincial Championships


Teams who win a championship in the "A" division (or those with only one division) in the previous year, and apply to move up one age group the following year will be automatically placed in the "A" division of that event. Example: a team that win's grade 7 in 2014 and apply to go to grade 9 in 2015 (keep in mind they are in grade 8 and so will enter the "A" division) will be placed in the "A" division of the grade 9 championships. Teams may make application to the Minor Committee for an exemption of this rule.
