When does the season start and end?
After Evaluations in early September, teams are typically formed by the middle of September. In late September and all through October, many teams will play exhibition games, and all teams will play approximately 6 - 8 games in a tiering round. By the end of October teams are placed in a tier where they will play the regular season.
The regular season runs to the end of January and February is playoff month. Finals and PCAHA Championship Games are typically played in the first week of March. The PCAHA season for "C" teams will be over by the time Spring Break starts in March.
The BC Hockey Provincial Championship tournament for qualifying Pee-Wee, Bantam, and Midget "A" teams takes place over spring break. The top two PCAHA teams from the playoff round qualify for Provincials.
