The CCM High Performance Youth Tier I 16U classification (2004 birth years) has adopted the same framework of the 14U and 15 Youth Leagues which have been in operation since August of 2016. This allows players the opportunity who have played in the Tier I Leagues as 14 and 15 year olds to have continuity and largely play with many of their same teammates from previous seasons.
The 16U League teams will once again take part in a training camp weekend and will participate in the NAHL Showcase.
The 16U League will have six teams competing, with game weekends beginning in mid-August. There will be eight regular season weekends, followed by League playoffs in late October. The Minnesota District Playoff to determine the team that will represent Minnesota at the USA Hockey National Championships in April, 2021 will be held in early November.
All teams will conclude their season in time for players to transition to their respective high school programs.
