Response to Re: It seems...
Most centres do advertise to a higher level for tryouts. Perhaps it should be based on the previous year's categorization. Unfortunately it is hard to categorize properly in the A/BB range and I suppose BB/B. Recall Etobicoke A-BB won the A-A after a recat, but at the time they seemed to be right in declaring as a BB based on exhibition play.
The honest thing to do for tryouts would be to call it an A/BB team or BB/B. I saw more AA team tryouts this year but suspect they will declare A in the end. Good luck with that one - it seems to be rampant at the Midget level.
For big centres with 4 and 5 teams per division, the letters almost always always stay the same as at tryouts and I agree with Dice, one team per category. If anything they get bumped up from time to time which would be the exception to that rule.
In the end a top B team can generally compete with a bottom BB, top BB with bottom A, etc. etc.
Key point: An association's top team should try and stay as advertised whether AA or A. However, if the top team is BB, then expect to win lots and yes expect be called the s***bagger word.
Clarington's example had a AA Atom team and the next team down really and honestly struggled with which category to stay in BB or B. The exhibition game process for them had wild game score swings because the team was finding itself at the time.
