HOCKEY CANADA STATEMENT IN RESPONSE TO CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19)

 

CALGARY, Alta. – The following is a statement on behalf of Hockey Canada from Tom Renney, chief executive officer, and Scott Smith, president and chief operating officer, on the ongoing coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

 

“Without question, this is an unprecedented period of difficulty for the sports world. The health and safety of all participants in sport, including players, coaches, staff, officials, fans, family, volunteers and the general public, is of the utmost importance to Hockey Canada.

 

After much consultation with the Hockey Canada membership, our chief medical officer and public health officials, the Hockey Canada Board of Directors has made the decision to cancel all Hockey Canada-sanctioned activities, including our national championships, until further notice, effective Friday, March 13, 2020.

 

We recognize the tremendous effort that has been put forth all year by individuals across the country as they participate in Canada’s game. Although it is difficult to process the hockey season ending abruptly, we feel this is the best course of action in order to do our part in keeping our country safe.”

As per the OHF Directive Body Checking is NOT allowed in Recreational Hockey.
(House League, Local League, Rostered Select and Minor Development)

All teams play a 26 game season (13 Home and 13 away games) plus playoffs. As the number of teams in each age group varies anywhere from 6 to 24 teams, and fluctuates from year to year, the league cannot offer balanced schedules.

The SRLL regular season tie breaker formula has been programmed into the season standings and these results are tracked in the W% column.

RUNNING TIME

For the Under 15 (U15) (formerly Minor Midget) and Under 17 (U17) (formerly Midget) Divisions, all games must comprise three (3) stop time periods scheduled as per SRLL Regulation 3.3a). However, when any team is ahead by five (5) or more goals in the third period the game will proceed utilizing ‘running time’. In this situation the game will proceed under ‘running time’ unless the gap is reduced to three (3) goals, at which point the clock will revert back to stop time. The only time the clock would be stopped during running time is if an on-ice injury should occur. All penalties are running time.

All SRLL Home games sheets are to be emailed after every game to: [email protected]. (Home Team only needs to email)


TIME OUTS

Effective Immediately the Simcoe Region Local League will follow the Hockey Canada Rules governing time outs. During regular season and playoff games each team will be allowed ONE 30 second time out.

OHF Dressing Room Policy:

It will be the Policy of the Ontario Hockey Federation that, when any player under the age of 19 is in the team dressing room(s) before, during and after a game or practice, a minimum of two of the following shall be present in the dressing room(s) or immediately outside the dressing room(s) with the door ajar: two team or club/association officials, properly screened or one such official and an adult person associated with the team. In the situation of Juvenile or U21 hockey the coach may use an adult player over the age of 19 to be the second adult associated with the team.

The Ontario Recreation Facilities Association (O.R.F.A.) has issued a Facility Alert recommending that signage be posted that "Prohibits the use of cell phones, and personal digital assistants in all recreation facility change rooms". The OMHA acknowledges the recommendation of O.R.F.A. and directs all members to govern themselves accordingly.

Team BALANCING Requirements


Please note: this next section only applies to Associations having multiple teams playing within the same division.

The Simcoe Region Local League has balancing rules in place requiring Associations (with multiple teams playing within the same division) to not exceed a predetermined percentage spread specified in the constitutions policy set to keep one stacked team, from an Association with a number of teams in the same division, from running away with the division. This will require Associations to trade players among their own teams within that division prior to the November AND December deadlines each season if the winning percentage spread between the top and bottom team from that same Association is too wide, or "out of balance".

Associations are required to ensure all their teams play a certain number of games by November, and again by December, so they can monitor and report to the other league members at the monthly league meetings on their progress and all steps taken to achieve balancing.

All teams are to be balanced by certain deadlines, but once the teams are within the percentage spread requirement on the deadline, there is no requirement to maintain this spread after the deadline. Good coaching can improve team performance and is not penalized. The intent of the policy is simply to prevent any Association with multiple teams within the same division from entering a stacked team.

  Any Association with teams that fail to balance and are still out of balance by the middle of December each season will have been fined two times for missing two deadlines. Those Associations have until the end of the season to bring the unbalanced percentage spread back into balance.

If at seasons end, the winning percentage spread between the "unbalanced" top and bottom same Association teams exceeds the allowable spread set by the policy, the Association is fined one final time and faces the possibility of having one or more of those teams in the division denied entry (disqualified) into the playoffs.

This long standing League requirement was developed, voted on and inserted into the SRLL Constitution by the Association Presidents who created this League (including its predecessor) 30+ years ago
