Team Tiering: Ringette Alberta vs Leagues.

It has come to Ringette Alberta’s attention that there are a small number of associations which have requested some of their teams be placed in tiers for league play that are not the same as the tier indicated by the Universal Athlete Assessment Testing Protocol.

It is the respective League’s choice to accept teams (or not) into their league and into specific divisions and levels (tiers).  Ringette Alberta does not have authority over this.

As far as Ringette Alberta is concerned, the level for all U10, U12 and U14 teams is the level indicated by the team’s UAA scoreThis is in keeping with clause 4.4.3.2 in the Ringette Alberta tiering policy which states, Minimum team level will be determined by relative UAA team score”.

In other words, if a team’s UAA score says the team is an A team, for example, then Ringette Alberta considers that team to be an A team unless and until that is changed through the Team Advance / Retreat process.

For U12 and U14 teams, the UAA score, unless a retreat or advance has been applied, will be used to determine its placement in Ringette Alberta playdowns and provincials regardless of the tier it was placed for league play at the start of the season.

Finally, a team which is participating in league play at a level that does not match its UAA-indicated level is expected to complete a sufficient number of games against teams in their UAA-indicated level and other level(s) if it expects its retreat application to be granted.  These can be played in exhibition games or tournaments.

The routine of participating in league play at the start of the season at a level that does not match the UAA-indicated level is under review for the 2019-2020 season.
