The Buckeye Travel Hockey League is the premier youth travel ice hockey league for "A" and "AA" 10U, 12U, and 14U 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 seeding games played in September each year. BTHL awards both regular-season and post-season tournament championships in each division.
Preliminary division assignment for the 12U "B" teams are posted on the B Division Seeding page.
10U and 14U preliminary division assignments will be completed as soon as possible after this Sunday's make-up games. Any teams that were not available on Sunday, please send us any other game results that may help us determine your teams's correct placement, for example we will be looking at the Keeneland tournament results for teams that participated in that.
The schedule and additional information for the B Division seeding game weekend is posted under the Tournaments tab (direct link to the page is below).
Check the page for updates on rescheduled 10U and 14U games that were cancelled on 10/12 - 10/13.
Final division assignments have been posted.
We appreciate your patience, we took some extra time to consider several petitions and final division organization. We have tried to keep divisions smaller (4 or 5 teams) where possible to minimize the competitive variation between teams. Teams are encouraged to schedule outside their division for additional games. These non-league games will not be included in your regular season division standings.
Our FAQ page has instructions for entering game schedules on the website. Please pay special attention to the instructions for entering non-league games so that they are not included in the standings.
Remember teams only enter their HOME games.
We are working to ensure that all coaches, managers, schedulers have access to their team page by Thursday morning. This is a lot of set up work and due to limitations of the system could not be done in advance. It may be easiest to do your scheduling offline or in a spreadsheet and enter the games on the website when your schedule is final.
We advise using the BTHL website from a computer and not the SportsEngine mobile app to enter your games. We won't help or answer questions about using the mobile app to enter your game schedule.
We will have more information about submitting scoresheets and misconduct reports soon.
Thank you for your support. We are looking forward to a great season of youth hockey!
