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 Mite 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.
AA/A Divisions, 10U - 14U: Feb 25–27, 2022
B Divisions, 10U - 14U: Mar 4–6, 2022
8U Divisions End of Season Jamboree: Mar 6, 2022
MidAm has provided a summary of penalty times that will be in force for the 2021-22 season. This is in response to USA Hockey rule changes that left some discretion to Affiliates to authorize pro-rated penalty times so that the penalty time is proportionate to the period length.
In particular Mid Am has a waiver on the 14U change for minor penalties and these will continue to be 2 minutes. Note also that ALL Major and Misconduct penalties continue to be 5 and 10 minutes respectively.
Please review this chart and provide it to your coaches, timekeepers, and penalty box volunteers.
