The Atlantic Hockey Federation will host the first ever parity event on Saturday April 30th and Sunday May 1st. The purpose of the Parity event is to give teams a chance to display their teams’ ability prior to the AHF seeding every team in our league. This will allow us to create a competitive schedule for each team limiting lopsided scores throughout the season.
The event will feature over 325 teams playing over 475 games at 10 rinks over the weekend. Each team will play three 30 minute run time games giving teams a chance to compete versus a range of opponents over the time that it would take to play 1-2 Level 2 games. Each team should expect no more than 4-5 hours required for this event in town. We’re going to utilize the video expertise from Pixellot to produce advanced analytics which will provide more insight into a team’s performance on a game to game basis well beyond the final score of the game. The data that will be compiled from the games will be a valuable resource as the league and its competition committee creates schedules for the 2022-2023 season.
For fans that cannot attend be sure to watch all games on livebarn.com. GameSheet will once again provide real time scoring as all games will be scored on the GameSheet app. Schedules and results will be available on the new and improved AHF website as well as the Atlantic Hockey Federation app, available at the Apple Store and Google Play.
