Where sufficient registration does not warrant these participation levels, the Vice President House League can sign off on not operating to these maximum levels. Where there are more than these maximum levels, additional participants can be accepted provided the Executive approves and there is sufficient ice available to run the Competitive and Intermediate AA programs.
23.3 In order to continue to develop the quality of competitive hockey, the Board of Directors shall run one (1) competitive team at U9 and two (2) competitive teams at the U11, U13, U15 and U18 levels.
