Deputy Commissionerís Report

No Report

 

STAFF REPORTS

Member Services Ė Wendy asked that all clubs turn in the LOIs in right away.  Player up paperwork must be in before players participate. Coaches must be screened and cleared before rostering.  The registrarís meeting will be held at the managerís training on 8/26.  New registrars should be in attendance.

 

Ice Convener Ė Chris will be sending out forms for game slots.  Donít be late in turning those slots in.  He will also be sending out pre-season declaration forms.  Both are due by 8/17.  The SCAHA Guidebook is on-line now for the current season. 

 

There was some discussion that early tryouts surprised some because the rosters seem fuller.  Feedback around the room was mixed.  We will revisit tryout dates for next season in November. Larry Cahn encouraged Presidents to watch the level of play for their teams and place them appropriately.

 

Statistician Ė Chris reported in Annieís absence.  Only 15 people have responded for managerís training on 8/26.  The cost to SCAHA for this training is about $20 per person and we are only charging $5 per person.  Please encourage attendance and respond as soon as possible.

 

Treasurer - Bob did not have copies of the new budget for presentation.  The budget will be presented at the next SCAHA meeting for approval. 

 

Ace Coaching Coordinator - Larry explained that he must have an Ace Coaching Coordinator for each club (mandated by USA Hockey).  Send him the name of the coordinator immediately.

 

New Business

None

 

Old Business

Dave Bigelow inquired about the new playerís patches.  Everyone was reminded that all SCAHA players will be receiving patches this year because of the logo change.  We are still working on the design, but they will be out before Christmas.

Meeting was adjourned at 8:45pm
