BIPHA Wales Stats

GUIDE TO THE STATISTICS.

The stats within this website are generated from the Official BIPHA Scoresheets and Netminder statistics collected during League games. These details are entered into a software application that calculates many interesting statistics and provides a valuable resource for players, coaches, managers and parents. The software is designed for ice hockey and some penalty types and other stats are slightly different to in-line hockey.

CLARIFICATION FROM FROM THE RULE BOOK

27th March 2016

At the last round of senior matches on 12th March 2016 there seemed to be a bit of confusion about the rules regarding tied place in the league table.
Here is the rule that covers this situation from the rule book
GENERAL RULES 5.
For National and league competitions, points shall be awarded as follows:
Two (2) points to the game winner
One (1) point for a tie game
Zero (0) points to the loser
Minus (-2) points for a forfeit
(a) In compiling the results of pool play, games within the pool that finish tied, shall remain tied and points for each game awarded as follows:
(b) The placement of teams within each pool shall be according to the most number of points accumulated in round-robin play. If after addition of points, two or more teams are determined to possess an equal amount of points during pool play, the team's position is determined as follows:
(c) The victor of the head-to-head competition in the round robin shall be awarded the higher placement position.
(d) If a tie still results, the team with the lowest total number of goals-allowed for the entire play-off round shall be used to determine position for the tied teams.
(e) If a tie remains, the lowest total of goals-allowed in common wins among the tied teams, during all games in the group competition, will determine the group positions.
(f) If a tie still results, the highest total of goals scored in common losses among the tied teams will determine their positions.
(g) If teams are tied after applying the above criteria, a shoot-out will take place as defined in Rule 73f


THE FOLLOWING POINT SHOULD BE OBSERVED
Rule (c)The head to head match that will decide the finishing position will be the victor of the last head to head match that the two teams played.

BIPHA Forfeiture Rules 2011-2012 Season

As changes to the published Fixture List can happen at short notice, players & parents should always check with their own coach/manager for the latest fixture information before traveling.
Please be aware of the BIPHA South Wales local rules relating to forfeiture of games. (From 2007 - 2008 Season)
Clubs should note that in the event of forfeiting a game for whatever reason, they are responsible for BOTH TEAMSmatch fees for booked hall time, i.e., their match fee and the opposition team's match fee.
This MAY be reduced where at least 4 weeks notice is given to the Fixtures Secretary AND the hall time can be re-used economically. This will also apply to any re-schedules.

Netminders


To achieve a consistent statistical record and to be fair to all our netminders, it is essential that netminders statistics are recorded at EVERY match.
We currently require that each team fills out a 'Netminder Analysis Form' at EVERY match that their team plays.
Every team should ensure that one of their members is filling out a form and when the match is over return it immediately to the penalty box.
Forms cannot be accepted unless submitted on the day of the match unless approved by a Technical Director.
Please note that you must record the data for both teams.
Forms are available from the Help section of the website. If your club is responsible for 'setting up the day' please print some out and take some with you.
The forms also give an example of how to fill in the form correctly.

TOP NETMINDER AWARD FROM 2005-2006 SEASON

A number of enquiries have been received regarding the minimum number of matches that have to be played to qualify for the TOP NETMINDER Award.
The following applies (This rule was has been in force since the 2005 - 2006 season)
Number of matches in a divisions full season (x ) The minutes played in 1 (one) period in that division.
For example in the recently completed under 18 league 4 (matches) x 15 (minutes) = 60 minutes
In this example a minimum of 60 minutes would have to be played in the under 18 league to be eligible for the top netminder award
It is unfortunately too time consuming to edit the netminder tables to reflect this on a weekly basis due to the huge amount of data that has to be processed to produce the stats. We will however try to produce a final table as soon as possible on completion of a league.
