3. Novice Updates

Why make a Novice division?
➢    It creates division where brand new players with no organized hockey experience and players that have low skill have a place to work on their fundamentals without being at a competitive disadvantage.
➢    The goal was to provide a nurturing division for these players; because of this, playoffs were deemed unnecessary and removed for Novice.
➢    As the player gets better and becomes more comfortable, the idea is for them to want to move up.
➢    Provides a choice to Novice players of starting in the Novice division that has players of similar skill/experience or jump into a higher division. Previous seasons forced them to play in bronze against silver players as the lowest option.
➢    Most players that never played organized hockey before do not know how to get started. Having a designated division for them makes it easier for the league to assist them in that aspect.

 

What are the differences vs. the other divisions?
➢    The fee of Novice is cheapest of all other divisions ($600 total for team)
➢    There are no jersey rules applied. Teams can use jerseys if they wish, however, it will not be enforced.
➢    There are no playoffs. Ten game regular season remains.
➢    One referee
➢    All other league details are the same

 

How do I play as a Novice player?
➢    You can join a Novice team
➢    You can create a Novice team ($200 Deposit Due March 31st. Full $600 Deposit Due April 7th)
➢    You can register as a free agent and if no team picks you up, you will be assigned to a league created team.

Urgent Incident Update

To all GTIHL players, coaches, referees, contractors, and fans,

We’d like to take a moment to publicly address an incident which occurred this past weekend. First, the safety of our players, fans, referees, and contractors will always take the utmost precedence in determining the corrective action for those involved. While we cannot divulge the specifics, the Board has elected to issue very severe suspensions to the individuals engaging in the abusive, reckless and dangerous behaviors. While some may consider these punishments as harsh, they are fair considering the past patterns of the individuals involved.

The majority of our members play and act responsibly and we greatly appreciate those that behave appropriately in a fun and competitive atmosphere. We are disappointed when individuals go beyond the scope of competitive play and choose to put other individuals at risk of injury. Profane and abusive language towards referees or rink staff certainly will not be tolerated either. Disrespect towards officials and rink staff is something that the Board takes quite seriously. We hope this sends a clear and direct message to all league members that they must behave appropriately or risk similar consequences. This league is a privilege and not a right!

The amount of “behind the scenes” effort that goes into running a league as large as this can be taxing for those that dedicate their hours and their life to this organization. Incidents like these only add to the frustration of those who wish for the GTIHL to flourish. Ultimately the behavior of the members will decide the fate of the GTIHL as we are committed to ensure this league continues to the best of the Board members’ abilities. It is the intent and hope of this letter to serve as a wake up call to the players, coaches and fans of the GTIHL. The negative behaviors that have been exhibited, the foul language that has been used, and the abusive behavior and talking back to GTIHL referees and rink staff highlighted above are no longer acceptable and will not be tolerated going forward.
 
We wish every team the best of luck as we conclude the Summer 2018 season and look to enjoy the GTIHL as it was originally intended.
