Tiering Information 2023-24 Season
Tiering Grid 2023-24 Season
The Standardized Tiering Model is a key component of the Alberta One initiative, where Hockey Alberta and its Minor Leagues work together to build a unified structure and strategic model that enables Leagues to adopt the same tiering, seasonal structure and other operational processes.
The Alberta One Standardized Tiering Grid provides all Minor Hockey Associations a starting point for the placement of their teams within a specific division with teams then proceeding through tiering rounds with final placement determined by the policies within the individual league. Having now completed one season under the tiering model, Hockey Alberta’s Minor Leagues Committee has made a few adjustments to the Alberta One Standardized Tiering Grid. Specifically, the changes to the Tiering Grid come where associations are required to have multiple Tier 1 teams based on the number of teams they have within a division.
All leagues/ organizations utilize the Alberta One Standardized Tiering Grid as a starting point in their tiering placement. The grid provides all Minor Hockey Associations a starting point for the placement of their teams within a specific division. Teams then proceed through tiering rounds for final placement determined by policies of the individual league.
