2019 Pre-Indoor Captain’s Meeting
- Introductions – Kevin
MacLeod, Jodi Gorham and Bryce Zimny
- Players: Paul,
Chad, Randy, Rebecca, David, Amanda, Bryce, Jodi, Bill
- Subs for Indoor –
- Problems with current rules
i. – players playing all year without paying
ii. – teams bringing in subs and having more players than other team
- Options: pay per game, pay a one time fee,
anyone with a membership can sub, no subbing at all. All these options were
discussed and the following was decided.
- Pay per game-
i. $10 per game per sub to be paid, by etransfer to
firstname.lastname@example.org, prior to stepping on the field.
ii. Prior to the game start captains must inform the other team how
many subs are playing and who they are. Subs can join the game at any time
as long as they were declared in this manner prior to game start.
iii. Maximum of 2 substitute players are allowed per team per game.
iv. Any team that plays a sub and does not pay the $10 fee will be fined $50
and be issued a default for the game.
v. Rostered players cannot play for another team within the same round robin
group. Example: A player rostered for a team in the competitive division cannot
sub for another team in the competitive division.
vi. Any player can sub, as long as they pay the fee.
- Late registrations -
Last teams to enter may not play this year unless we can find another
team. Kevin will do everything he can to get everyone playing, but if you
wait too long to register you may be out of luck.
- Tuesday league – If
we do not fill up the time slot for the new POD league then it is possible
that we will have to give back the time slots to the soccer people.
- Memberships are
mandatory. The membership run from April to end of April the following
year, so if you played in the summer you do not need to purchase this
again. Players must purchase these in order to be selected for any team
- Recruiting women –If
you have any ideas contact Kevin.
players in general – We have created a
google doc that tracks who needs a team
This was not discussed at the fall
meeting but we are putting it here as a reminder.
In the summer captain’s meeting there
was lots of discussion about improving the safety of all players and also how
aggressive play results in women leaving the sport. It was generally agreed
that since this is overall a recreational league where most players just play
once a week for exercise and have no ambition to turn pro that there should be
more of a focus on ensuring that all players go home in the same health as they
arrived. Players receiving concussions or broken bones due to collisions is
totally unacceptable. Therefore, it was decided that players should attempt to
change their style of play to:
Avoid all contacts.
Make it a game of skill as opposed to
aggression. If you cannot make a play on the disc without making contact, then
you probably should not make the play.
Avoid using the phrase “I got the disc first”
as an excuse for their dangerous bid. If you hit the disc and then go over
someone’s back or crash into their body this is a foul.
Avoid a win at all costs attitude.
Captains must talk with their players,
especially those more aggressive players, and try and get them to buy in to the
