2015-16 Week #3 Rankings Released
Posted: 2015-10-14 05:30:00 ET

Week#3 brings another 7600 games and 1400 additional teams who have reached the 5 game minimum and are now being ranked. We have now reached 33k game scores. What does all this mean?

This biggest impact of these numbers is that unless you are at the very top of the rankings, you moved down this week. Take the USA Bantam Tier 2 rankings, for example. We added 136 teams to the rankings this week and there are now 447 ranked teams. Last year we added the green up, red down arrows and the "new" to the rankings page to signify movement from one week to the next. These are great little indicators, but when we are adding handfuls or dozens of teams to the rankings, these indicators can be misleading. I strongly encourage you to compare your team to others in your league from one week to the next and not focus on what is likely your team's downward movement in the rankings because teams have been added above you who just reached the 5 game minimum.

This week we added quite a few girls games and have turned on most of the remaining rankings for USA Tier 2 girls and Ontario BB rankings. Our 700 volunteers are doing a great job, but if your team's division does not have a volunteer we could sure use your local expertise to help get your teams up to date in MYHockey.

Enjoy this week's update!
