District new marketing campaign to promote youth hockey, called “Lace Em Um”

Christian Dempster of

held President Day’s weekend in San Diego. Big turnout last year, had to
turn teams away.
Curt was absent –
Treasurer’s report was distributed for review.
Wendy reported that
STOP patches can be purchased for $1.00 per set. Lightning and Express still
owe for patches. Remember that coaches and players must sign the Letter of
Intent, need both membership form and supplemental forms. Players’ fees are
due from a few clubs. Do not send in fees for Tier 1 players.
Dave Monshaw reported
that some divisions have odd number of teams. Due to the odd number of teams
this creates odd number of games. One team will need to play an extra game,
which would only count for one team. Executive Board previously discussed
and decided that a week would be selected, written down and put into an
envelope and held by Commissioner and then revealed at the end of the
season. This game will not count for the team with the extra game. Only game
misconducts issued during game will count. Dave will review possibility of
adding game to schedule for all teams in odd division; will need to talk to
scheduling consultant to see how it would affect. Clubs with teams in odd
divisions would need to come up with extra ice. Issue has come up with girls
teams, girls are paying $27.00 registration fee and only getting half of the
games. It was suggested that all coaches be polled if they want to play
against the girls. Dave reminded everyone that Sportability is the most
accurate for schedule information. Discussion followed regarding teams
dropping from AA to A. CAHA makes final decision regarding teams dropping.
Annie reported that
misconduct list will be updated on Friday. Missing score sheet list will be
sent out next week. Reminder that a two game suspension will be issued for
two majors in one game for same player (4.04b) If referee does not assess,
Annie will process and contact team manager and/or club directly. Make sure
to check with referee regarding game misconducts if unsure. Sandy reported
that to date there have been 8 games with 2 officials (7 – North, 1 –
South.) Question was asked who signs score sheet if player is serving Match
Penalty. It was suggested that it should be written in comments that player
is serving penalty. If player is serving misconduct, then player must be in
attendance at game and sign score sheet. Reminder that any player serving
Match Penalty is not allowed to attend any game function. If a player needs
to serve Match and Game, they will sit the 30 days first and then serve the
reported that in previous years a contact list was put together of contact
information for all teams. Recommend that we put together a current contact
book. Dave Monshaw stated that Sportability has a spot for contact
information for each team. If information is put in, can make communication
easier for game reschedules. It was requested that each club send team
manager information to Dave and Larry. Larry and Cindi will send request
letter to each club. It was stated that each club will need to get
permission from the Managers to post the information.
Lisa England brought
forth a request from Mariners Squirt B team to change team declaration.
Teams movement during final declaration left only 6 teams in the B division,
concerned that the division will not be very competitive. Bakersfield also
expressed concern regarding this situation. Valarie Broadhead moved to leave
division as is; deadline for declaration has already passed. MOTION WAS
SECONDED AND CARRIED.
Dave Monshaw inquired
if we want to schedule games for this week. It was suggested that they play
each other to start. It was also stated that the cost factor was needed to
know before changing schedule and who would pick-up the cost for changing
reported that volunteers would be needed for SCAHA Pre-Select camp, which
will be held 12-19, 20th & 21st.
