Due to issues we are experiencing with rostering, team selection, Ice rink availability and just general uncertainty, The LCAHL has decided to "push" things back a bit to make certain that we are able to offer the best experience possible.
The original plan was to have Alignment games the weekend of September 25th, however it became very clear that not everyone would be "READY" for that start date. We have decided to schedule the Alignment games for the Weekend of October 9th to 11th to allow for a better experience for all. Please continue to communicate with your Division Director or any member of the LCAHL Board.
Our plan is to still schedule a full regular season and play offs for this season and we are actively looking at every option to make this happen. Our biggest obstacle, which most of you are well aware is the Rinks themselves are still trying to figure out what they can and can not allow based on the every changing landscape being handed down by the different governing bodies and the State of Michigan. Please continue to be patient as we all work through this to provide a quality LCAHL experience.
For planning purposes please use the following as a guide: (UNDERSTAND THAT ANY AND ALL MAY CHANGE DUE TO THE COVID)
1. Alignment Games: October 9-11
2. Start of Regular Season: October 16
3. End of Regular Season: January 31, 2021
4. Play off Alignments: January 22, 2021
5. 1st round of Playoffs: February 1 - February 26
6. Playoff Championship weekends : March 5 - March 28
Thanks again for your support and please continue to communicate any issues as they arise.
LCAHL is planning to have our Mite half-ice league as we have the past few years. However, the set up for Mites creates some very unique issues that we must work through like shared locker rooms, shared benches, changing benches, Belfor ice availability and some other minor issues.
These extra challenges mean we will need to start a bit later than in previous years. We are shooting for a mid to late October start. I will be communicating details as we get them.
