6 NCWHL GENERAL MEMBERSHIP MEETING --- March 2014 Seeding: based on the end of the season record. Ties will be broken by goals for/goals against. Subbing: no same division subbing, you may only retrieve subs from lower divisions. Goalies: goalies will be assigned at the discretion of the goalie coordinator. Every effort will be made to ensure fairness. End of Regulation Ties: three player shootout, then alternating shooter until all shooters have gone (sorry, no TJ Oshie/International rules). Playoffs: Rules and Guidelines

7 NCWHL GENERAL MEMBERSHIP MEETING --- March 2014 Why? o 8 Maroon teams, parity issue across skaters o Goal is to create a more equal division o Risk of hurt feelings weighed against the benefit of a Maroon division that more closely matches the evaluation standards Division Coordinators, Board Members, Captains spent the past year working on best practice for in season evaluations. February vote in Maroon division o 85% of division voted o 81% voted to have In Season Evals in Summer 2014 o 19% voted against Evaluations will be held in Summer 2014 season; resulting re-evaluations will occur in Winter evaluation sessions In-Season Evals: Maroon, Summer 2014

8 NCWHL GENERAL MEMBERSHIP MEETING --- March 2014 Unpaid volunteers will evaluate players in Maroon games throughout the Summer 2014 season. – Goal is to have players/teams watched 3-4 times throughout the season. Evaluators will NOT be assigned players to watch, just report if there are players that are not able to keep up with play. This is not always about speed, but the player as a whole. Evaluators will NOT be connected to players in that division. – They will, by and large, be current or former USAH officials who are familiar with our league and our divisions. – They will report to the Maroon Coordinator the players who they feel are in need of a reevaluation. The DC will report these players to the board and the Evaluation Coordinators. – They will not be announced at games. They can and will show up throughout the season. – The evaluators names, games attended, and recommendations will be available to the board. In-Season Evals: Evaluator Guidelines

9 NCWHL GENERAL MEMBERSHIP MEETING --- March 2014 Who will be asked to re-evaluate? o If a player is identified by 2 different evaluators at 2 different games, they will be asked to be re-evaluated for Maroon in the Winter evaluations (i.e., they will become a Maroon Hopeful) o If that player does not play in the Winter season, she will still need to be re- evaluated in the Maroon evaluations when she does return to the league. Re-evaluation Process o If that player does not attend Maroon evaluations, she will be placed in the Red Division. o If that player re-evaluates and is placed in Maroon, she will be exempt from being asked to re-evaluate via In-Season Evals for three seasons. o Any players who are placed in Maroon via the standard evaluation process will be exempt from being asked to re-evaluate via In-Season Evals for three seasons. In-Season Evals: Evaluation Process

10 NCWHL GENERAL MEMBERSHIP MEETING --- March Goals: Maintain Increased Player Registration Increase publicity and league exposure GHATD player conversion GHATD Discounts: 16 discounts in 2013 and 66 given for the last seven seasons Green division is still small Player retention League has grown ~30% since Winter 2007; average 90% returning skaters Maintaining division growth: 3 teams in Green, 6 teams in Red, 7 teams in Maroon, 4 teams in Blue Publicize and continue NCWHL Assistance Fund 7 awards in 2013; 50 awards in 6 years Offer best league value in Bay Area 10

11 NCWHL GENERAL MEMBERSHIP MEETING --- March 2014 Automated Scheduler In early 2013, we realized that the schedule complexity had reached a point where we needed to automate it Approach: Try to find the most fair way to balance competing requirements o Slot Parity: same number of ice slots per skater o Slot Parity: each skater plays equally at each rink / slot o Time between games: try to equalize across the season o Matchups: try to mix up opponents and home/away o Ref coordination: match divisions playing in back-to-back ice slots o Special events: playoffs, practices, evening pain during big tournament weekends (MLK, CAHA) o Note: due to Thanksgiving, Christmas, Vegas, and in-house travel leagues, Winter is a much harder season to get consistency across the ice slots 11
