|+ ||Rusty cup tournament, 17 and 18 May|
The league is putting together a 7 v 7 tournament to benefit the spouse of Rusty, the ref who passed away this Spring. The dates are Saturday May 17th & Sunday May 18th. The idea is a round robin on May 17th where every team gets 3 games and then the winners of all of the round robins play off in a semis and finals on May 18th. The cost would be $200 per team, with proceeds going to support Rusty's widow. Note that all players must be registered with BCSSL, and you can only play on one team in the tournament.
|+ ||To which division do I belong?|
There has been confusion about division numbering, and we are going to transition to a more descriptive naming scheme, which should clarify this issue.
Premier: Division III (full contact; avg age 21)
Advanced: Division IV (little/no contact; avg age 30)
Intermediate: Division V (no contact; avg age 32)
Novice and Over 30: Division VI (no contact; avg age 35)
Remember! Players should only be in 1 7-a-side and 1 11-a side team due to overlaps of games.
|+ ||Trash issues|
Action needed to be taken due to the amount of trash left on fields by players and spectators. Referees and officials will note trash remaining after games or game sets, excessive trash will be rewarded with an executive yellow card given to the captains of teams that were involved or played on that field that day. While this is not entirely equitable, it is the only method to curtail the trash residue through involvement of all teams. If this is not curbed, then prices for all have to go up to compensate for the increased cost of trash pickup.
|+ ||Division enforcement|
Teams deemed to be in wrong division due to competitive natures or skills will be transferred to the appropriate division without recourse after officials view their game(s). Teams sandbagging will be made fun of and scheduled against appropriate teams and will be moved between divisions with no recourse. No one wants to play in a blow out game, so we try to group teams with their skill/aggression levels, but that takes a couple of games observation to nail down in some cases.
|+ ||Insurance claim information|
Players who are injured in BCSSL games are covered by a secondary insurance. The procedure is 1) Go ahead and get your injury taken care of. 2) In the mean time, in order for a claim to be submitted, the claimant must complete a form which can be found here. 3) Fill out the "Adult Claim Form" found here and email that form to email@example.com. Then Bollinger (the insurance company) will walk us through the rest of the procedures.
