CO Hockey Rankings

Colorado's youth hockey teams spend many months working hard on and off the ice to excel in the season. All clubs have a standard to not only help gauge how they compare to the state's other teams in the same age and division, but also to avoid subjectively determining which squads advance to the state championships.  

The CO Hockey Hub Now Rankings are being used to better order the state's youth teams within their classifications. Similar to the Rating Percentage Index or PairWise Rankings, the CO Hockey Hub Now Rankings utilizes winning percentage, strength of schedule and average goal differential to create a numerical ranking on a point scale up to 100. 

At the end of the season, the top four teams for each age and classification in the Colorado Amateur Hockey Association (CAHA) qualify for the second annual CAHA State Championship Series, presented by the Colorado Avalanche on March 13-15. 

The system, which went through its inaugural run last year, uses data taken from contests played Sept. 1 to March 1--but only from games against Colorado teams of the same age and division count toward the rankings.

During the end of February, the CO Hockey Hub highlighted the top teams in select divisions, identify squads making big jumps in the CO Hockey Hub Now Rankings and spotlighted classifications with competitive races in the chase for state tournament bids.

The top four teams in the final rankings for each division have earned a spot in the CAHA State Championship. All teams not qualifying for the state tournament are eligible to participate in the Avalanche Cup, which is a part of the CAHA State Championship Series. 

The CAHA State Championship and Avalanche Cup placements have been revealed. The state tournament is March 13-15 and the Avalanche Cup is March 6-8. Over 196 tams will compete in six age groups, ranging from 10U, 12U, 14U, 16U, 18U & HS JV. Hosted in over 16 rinks and on 30-plus sheets of ice, 3,920 players and coaches will complete.
