Evaluations All House League players (i.e. All non “Rep” players) Early to mid September

To determine the skill level of each registrant and to “grade” them for inclusion on a team that reflects similar abilities.

Each Area Association holds their own Evaluations.

The goal is to create balanced teams, of similar skill levels, in the tiered divisions of Red, White, Blue or Green.

Convening All House League players (i.e. All non “Rep” players) The first six weeks of the Regular Season

To determine the placement of each team within balanced divisions (by age and skill level) and to schedule them accordingly.

Convening of each age level is handled by a separate Committee comprised of an MHL Director as Committee Chair and a representative from each Area Association.

Decisions can be made to move teams or players, up or down, within their respective skill categories.

The goal is to provide a fair and balanced schedule within each division.
