2016-17 Week #3 Rankings Released
Week#3 brings another 8000 games scores posted to MYHockey and total of 6500 teams who have now reached the 5 game minimum and are being ranked. The database now contains over 34k 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 146 teams to the rankings this week and there are now 514 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 not so much early in the season when we are adding hundreds of teams to the rankings each week. Once the season is well under way and we are adding only handfuls of teams to the rankings each week, these indicators can be very helpful. 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.
A quick shoot out to our 800+ volunteers are doing a great job. 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. You can find a link on your favorite teams division information page or you can select the volunteer option on the Report Scores Page.
Enjoy this week's update!
