KRACH RATINGS

WHAT IS IT?
KRACH is a team's won/loss ratio multiplied by strength of schedule

WHY DO WE USE KRACH RATHER THAN POINTS?

  • AHF teams play an unbalanced schedule
    • Teams do not play all the teams in their respective division
    • Teams that play a more difficult schedule would be punished in the standings based on points
  • The AHF offers 2 season structures, full season and partial season.
    • Teams in an age division/classification will not play an equal number of games.
    • Using KRACH rather than points earned will balance this so teams playing fewer games are fairly measured within their division

DISCLAIMER: KRACH Ratings will fluctuate greatly early in the season. Some of the extreme numbers we expect to normalize as the season progresses.

In November we will break up each division into multiple subdivisions based on KRACH ratings

  • The number of Subdivisions is based on the size of the divisions (A1/A2 treated separately).
  • Top 4 teams in each division make the playoffs for the division
    • Less than 10 teams - 1 division (no subdivisions)
      • Teams ranked 1-4 play in the Championship
    • 11-14 Teams- 2 Subdivisions
      • Teams ranked 5-8 play in the Gold
    • 15-26 teams: 3 Subdivisions
      • Teams ranked 9-12 play in the Silver
    • 27+ Teams: 4 Subdivisions
      • Teams ranked 13-16 play in the Bronze
  • Teams will change their subdivision until the final regular season game is played
