The Buckeye Travel Hockey League is the premier youth travel ice hockey league for "A" and "AA" 10U (Squirt), 12U (PeeWee), 14U (Bantam), and 16U and 18U (Midget) teams in Ohio, Indiana, and Kentucky. 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 the seeding tournament held in September each year. BTHL league play crowns a regular-season champion in each division based on their final standings as posted throughout the season on this website. In addition, a Post-Season League Tournament is held at the end of February, crowning Tournament Champions in each division.
This year we have regrouped the teams substantially to try to ensure the best competition for the playoffs. We considered league records, My Hockey rankings, and overall goal differentials to rank the teams. Substantial effort was taken to increase the chances for competitive and fun games for all participants.

Standings are computed for each division by points. Each game is worth 2 points for a win, or 1 point for a tie. Only regular season league games are included in the regular season standings.
If there is a tie on points, the following tie-breakers are used, in order, until the tie is broken:
1. Head-to-head game wins.
2. Total wins.
3. Scoring Percentage. Computed as Total Goals For / (Totals Goals For + Total Goals Against).
