3). On the Ice

  • Originally had 9 teams, placed girls into a short season for the South Shore conference. Additional discussion about the U18 boys’ team, which will mean we have a total of 11 teams in the SSC.
  • Alan Goode will be the SSC League Rep. Alan mentioned that folks from the SSC are willing to come down and have a meeting with the U18 boys’ & Bantams to discuss penalties & checking.
  • Commitment Payments
    • Bantams – 2 players and 1 goalie have decided not to play.
      • Dennis asked about having alternate players for the Bantam teams; offering some ice time and a few guaranteed games to ensure we have enough players to play games.
    • Most other teams have a high % of commitments, far above where we were this time last year.
    • Squirt goalie situation is still a concern, need to discuss efforts around recruiting for these positions.
  • Summer Hockey – interest in summer hockey from players, but need someone to organize efforts. Dennis expressed interest in stepping up to assist.
  • Radley presented a slate of coaches for the 2019-2020, with the exception of the U18 boys as this team is a fairly new and coaching selection is yet complete. Radley will submit a list of persons who applied to be a coach for the 2019-2020 season.
