About the Buckeye Travel Hockey League

The Buckeye Travel Hockey League is the premier youth travel ice hockey league for "AA," "A," and "B" 10U, 12U, and 14U teams in Ohio, Indiana, Kentucky, and West Virginia. The BTHL’s 8U Division includes teams from the region which play in Jamborees with league associations every weekend starting in November. The BTHL is a part of USA Hockey's MidAm district. 

League teams will play in various skill level divisions within each age group based on results from seeding games played in September each year. BTHL awards both regular-season and post-season tournament championships in each division.

End of Season Tournament Dates

On behalf of the Executive Board we wanted to thank you for your efforts so far this season. There have been a lot of changes and a lot of new people who put in a lot of effort to get to this point so we wanted to say Thank you!!!!

With almost 100 teams in our league we have been working to secure ice for all divisions on the same weekend. Unfortunately, with the OH State High School tournament and other large events, we were only able to secure enough ice to host 10U's Feb 23-25. The following weekend, March 1-3, we'll host all 12U's and 14U's. We'll be using rinks in Columbus IN, Oxford, Dayton, Cincinnati, and Louisville. We will reserve the right "reshuffle" teams for a more competitive Tournament.  MHR will be the main data point used in placing teams for the Tournament, but others, like head to head, could be used.

Final Divisions Posted

Final divisions are below - Your Division Commissioner will be in contact regarding the process for scheduling games and contact information for teams in your division. Divisions of 5 or more teams will play 16 league games. Divisions of 4 teams will play 12 league games. All League games should be played by February 18, 2024.

A team representative - the Coach or Manager should enter all HOME games into GameSheet as they are scheduled. To do so, log into GameSheet, click on View Schedule, then on the +New Scheduled Game button.  If you do not see +New Scheduled Game, you probably need to add the Regular Season Scheduling Code from the initial GameSheet setup email to your account.  See this video for details.  League Games MUST have Game Type set to Regular Season

You can use GameSheet for non-League games.  However, the team must be setup in our Regular Season to do so.  If it's another BTHL team, they will already be setup.  If it's a non-BTHL team, look in the Exhibition Division for your age level to see if they are already there.  If they are not, fill out this formNon-League games MUST have Game Type set to Exhibition, or they will affect the League standings.

For both League and Non-League games, you need to use a unique Game Number.  We suggest using Age-HomeCoach-MonthDay-Time - for example 10U-Jones-1017-230pm - this should give every game a unique Id.  UPDATE: Turns out Game Number does not need to be unique, so just use something that makes sense to you.

The Home Team is responsible for scoring the game in GameSheet and ensuring it is uploaded immediately after the game.

Please let us know if you have any questions or issues with GameSheet.
