OHF Two Deep 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.

REGULAR Season

The regular season began on Friday, September 30, 2016 and ended on Tuesday, January 31, 2017.
(To be updated this fall)

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.

All SRLL Home AND Away games sheets are to be emailed after every game by both teams to: [email protected]

TIME OUTS

As of April 2016 Rep Hockey (ETA - AAA and YSMHL -AE,A,AA) allowed a 30 second timeout in regular season games under "certain" conditions.
 
Currently the SRLL does NOT allow timeouts in the Regular season. The SRLL allows timeouts in the Playoffs as per Hockey Canada rules.


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 failed 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.

PLAYOFFS
