The way I understand it, there will be the Elite teams in EHF Elite (obviously) and two Tier 1 teams (one out of Merrimack, the other out of Skate 3). At some age levels I believe there is a third Tier 1 team. Perhaps at these age levels if one of the teams is weaker, they will enter them into the Premier.
How does a Vipers PHL thread turn into an Islanders thread...wtf! Who Gives a f*%$! about the Islanders???
From their website:
We are very happy to announce that the AAA teams will be playing the 2017-18 season in the PHL (www.theNEPHL.com).
The Premier Hockey League has 3 divisions: Premier, Elite, and Select which are 100% decided by Parity. The Vipers AAA teams will play in April parity and placement in whichever division will be based on their performance.
This ensures that our teams will be placed with equivalent competition.
So next season:
Tier1 teams will play in the EHF
AAA teams will play in the PHL
Mite Development will play in the NSHL
If you have any questions, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Can orgs play in different leagues?
If your teams are in EHF Tier I then their other teams should participate in the EMHL. Common Sense isn't it?
The Vipers are consistently strong at all age groups in the ehf tier 1. They are almost always in the black division and end up among the top few teams at the end of the season. As for the emhl, it's more of the same. The problem is, there is no way to get better competition in that league. I think they'd be better off putting a second team in tier 1 at the white level. It's a dead end league and people will leave if they're playing bad teams every week. It's only their second teams that are moving to phl. Their first teams will continue to play in ehft1
Obviously your on here stirring up ****. Top team will stay in EHF and Be the Tier 1 team. All other teams will move to the Premier League and obviously you did not ask management because they would have told you.
