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.
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!
Preliminary division assignments have been posted. This year we used some different naming conventions, but the divisions are still intended to group teams of similar strength together so that games are competitive.
Teams that disagree with their placement may file a petition for a change of division. Petitions are due by Monday, September 23 at 5:00pm Eastern time. Only petitions submitted by the Coach, Team Manager, or Association Rep will be considered.
These are PRELIMINARY division assignments. Please do not schedule games based on these divisions. Even if you are not submitting a petition, the teams in the final divisions may differ from those posted now.
