Gary advised the practices would continue until the numbers dropped below 10 players. Also Gary advised as has been past practice that all Springfield team practices would end once the playoffs began which would be Feb. 18th unless game cancellations force dates to be moved back.
Stats. Gary advised that the 3 star selection are made by a program in the LLHH website. The website administrator will be contacted to see if the parameters for choosing the star could be changed or not. Also Gary advised that teams need to appoint a parent of student to check their teams stats for corrections and if any corrections need to be made they can be made at the end of their game.
Game Cancellations. Gary advised all Clubs that the League reschedules games due to bad weather. As being part of a League teams should have enough respect for the other team to a least make a attempt unless the weather is obviously to risky to travel or that they have made an attempt but were not able to travel when the conditions are questionable.
New Business. All Star game. The All star game is scheduled for the 27th of Feb. at the Nelson Center. Gary advised that 5 players would be picked by each team for the Gold and Maroon teams. Shane suggested that the number of players be 6 from each team as then the teams could be divided evenly. This was done. Gary advised that one of the teams 6 players would be split in half so as to make 15 players for each team. Gary advised Clubs to picked their players based on that the players are All Stars for their team and not for the League. This enable players to be picked that may not have the stats to back up their being picked as All Stars but because of their contributions to their team they are All Stars for that Club. The combination of the players and the team that is split up for the Gold and Maroon team will be picked by the League as will the goalies, so as to try and make each team competitive for the game.
Rosters of each Club with the numbers of games each player on their roster has participated in will be turned in at the 2/5/15 meeting. As per rules each Club must verify their players are eligible for the Playoffs and All Star game and follow the procedure in the LLHH rules.
