2015 Southeastern District Tournaments

The Southeastern District Tournament is the qualifying tournament to advance teams to USA Hockey National Championship Tournaments. Each Affiliate in the district is allowed to enter one team at each eligible age classification in Girls'/Women's and Tier I categories.

The Tier I Pee Wee division was eliminated in 2013 in favor of adding a Tier II Pee Wee division to the tournament with each Affiliate entering two teams. The Tier II division's inclusion is in support of the USA Hockey's ADM Learn to Train stage for 11 and 12 year old athletes.     

The Women's event will host CAHA, PVAHA, SAHA and SAHOF teams at Women's B; PVAHA and SAHOF teams at Girls U14 and Girls U16.     

Youth Tier I/Tier II tournament will consist of teams from CAHA, PVAHA, SAHA and SAHOF at the Pee Wee age classification; teams from CAHA, PVAHA and SAHA at Bantam, CAHA, PVAHA, SAHA and SAHOF at Midget U16; and teams from SAHA and SAHOF at Midget U18.

Southeastern District Invitational Tournaments

Looking for a tournament?  All tournaments shown on our schedule are USA Hockey sanctioned events.  To have your tournament listed, please follow the instructions for sanctioning a tournament. Tournaments are added to the schedule after approval from the Southeastern District Registrar. 

The Southeastern District Caucas has mandated the District Registrar reject all requests for full ice tournaments in the Mite 8 & Under age classification. 

If an Invitational Tournament Application is received that includes a Mite 8 & Under age classification, the tournament operator will be given the opportunity to choose either half ice or cross ice. If the operator wishes not to make a choice, the Mite division will not be sanctioned. 

For questions regarding this policy, please contact Mark Bodner, Southeastern District Registrar at bodsgt@bellsouth.net.

ADM Kids

What is it like to play on full ice as a 8 year old?

To demonstrate how a full sheet of ice looks to a child, USA Hockey put adult players on an extra large rink with giant nets to simulate what a child sees. The players found the games tiring, difficult and said they would lose interest quickly in the sport if that was what they faced. See how adult players opened their eyes to what is being taught by the American Development Model of cross-ice hockey and small area games. Learn more at ADMKids.com.
