Hockey Michigan (AAU)
Get Real @ Hockey Michigan - AAU (aka Real Hockey). For Elite, Travel, House & Scholastic.
Dear new AAU coaches and teams,
Although I'm no longer the AAU Hockey State Director, I'll be happy to give you all a very quick run-down ahead of the Spring season.
First off, during most years the AAU Spring Hockey operations have been rather informal (meaning that there are no formal league schedules). All merely become AAU members, exchange contact information and then schedule games to fit their own preferences. I suspect this will be the same for this year.
This means that it is critical for all new teams to get listed on the AAU contact sheet, so that other teams can find them. I strongly recommend that you keep in contact with Lee Shifflett at the MAYHL (734) 341-5893 and assure that he has the current name and contact information for your team. The MAYHL has an online process available to get listed at: pointstreaksites.com/view/mayhl/registration-sign-up-information This is always important (Spring, Summer and Fall) so that you are kept up to date.
Joining & Rostering
Joining AAU and forming an AAU team is fairly easy (although I've been trying to talk AAU into making it even easier). Consider the following:
Please help your kids to have a fun spring,
2016 PlayoffsThe MAYHL has been getting a lot of emails asking about playoffs. Below is a reprint from the MAYHL website. All Games will be posted on Point streak as soon as posible once the last meaningful game is played. I will be reviewing all divisions at least once a week. Playoff format will vary for each age group and division.
Tier 1 8U: Round Robin In February, Play each other once. Top 4 Teams will play a one Game elimination Semi Finals and Finals.
8U Travel Michigan, Huron, St. Claire: These divisions will be the hardest, My original email was to pool everyone together and do an above 500 division and below 500 division, Upon looking at the divisions and games i am going to stay with the 3 divisions and move some teams around to make them more competitive, There will be round robin games in February with a Single game elimination Semi Finals and Finals for each Division on finals Weekend

2015-2016 GrowthHockey Michigan has already fielded 56 full-ice Mite teams. This includes 16 teams at 7U (2008), 30 teams at 8U (2007) and 10 teams at 8U Mixed (2007-2008). In addition to their leagues play throughout SE Michigan, these teams will be meeting the over 200+ Mite and Canadian Novice teams participation in AAU Hockey throughout the Great Lakes basin in Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Ontario and western New York. Not to mention the many more teams choosing to Get Real hockey in dozens of states.
However, our new 8U Mixed classification can still grow. This classification is for teams who have 2007 birth-years and a minimum of 34% 2008 birth-year players and is intended to provide a greater variety of divisions offering greater parity within each. In addition, this encourages the creation of this middle ground to conform with the AAU North American Championship concept of 8U Mixed, 10U Mixed and 12U Mixed.
Teams wishing to participate within the Michigan Amateur Youth Hockey League (MAYHL), which is one of the largest AAU leagues in the Midwest should visit their website at: www.mayhl.com and register as quickly as possible. They should also contact Keith at the email address below to provide contact information to Hockey Michigan (AAU).
Hockey Michigan has also fielded over 30 scholastic teams participating within 2 High School JV-Prep leagues. And for the first time ever has fielded 14 Adult No-Check teams.
