Update on AA Scheduling

Scheduling -- WORL (western Ontario ringette league) will take over the scheduling for the 2018-2019 Season.

o    Central Ontario Ringette League will be working with WORL this year for scheduling – moving toward a merged league for A & AA teams for the 2019-20 season.

o    Agreement proposed by CORL & WORL,

*        No weeknight games will be scheduled due to travel.

o    Everything kicks off in October with intent process (similar to provincials) which runs until end December

o    Historically, Tara has run all the refs for the weekend

Underage Policy

o    Review of Policy

o    Amendments to the policy noted:

*        “….Selected in the Top 4” with unanimous agreement from Evaluators

*        Addition of “Player Movement is subject to Membership Services – Central Region”

o    Underage Policy effective:  September 15th, 2018

Ms. G. Dudgeon – request to join the U12P team as an underage player – Player is U10 proper.

Decision – Board voted - after lengthy discussion – player is offered a spot on U12R team – thereby not taking a spot from an of-age player and their opportunity for development.  Still allowing for opportunity to develop with older players to gain development.
