Its time to start talking about the Burks Falls Hockey Leagues Seventh Season! Here is what we have in store for our players this year.
We will not be raising player dues this season, no matter what. Skaters $325 Goalies $250
SIGNUPS WILL OPEN THIS SATURDAY AUGUST 1st
Instructions for New Player Signups will be posted here this week.
Number of Games
You will get the same overall number of games, right now the only question is will the playoffs be extended and the regular season shortened, this is one of the last big items we are working on.
New For Season Seven
The Net Hunters and The Maniacs have retired. Jeremiah/Tyler and Ken have stepped back from running the teams, and we hope to see them all in this years draft.
Both teams have won Two Creighton Cups, The Net Hunters in 2010 & 2013 and The Maniacs in 2012 and 2014, some good memories there.
We have 2x new Team Captains in the works, details to follow.
No More 14 Man Rosters
The Team Captains have come up with a solution that will reduce the team rosters to a perfect 13 skaters.
Pickup Player Policy
For games where Team Captains know they are going to be short benched, they can now call in a Pickup Player. This can be any player not drafted to another BFHL team. Different Pickup Players can be called in throughout the season. Pickup Players can play for multiple teams. Come playoffs, Pickup Players who have played a minimum 5x games for the same team are eligible to play on that team, but only that team for the entire playoffs. Pickup Players cannot be the 14th skater, so if a teams entire roster is present no Pickup Players can skate.
How this will effect goalies is to be determined.
For the first time, we are going to let the Draft determine the Goalie spots. This means any number of goalies can signup and if you are drafted you play.
To Be Determined
A vote is underway with the Team Captains on this one, the big questions being 100% Open Draft or try another Co-Captain system. Both have been successful, the draft is always fun. This will be sorted out very soon.
We are really close on this one. Overall the intention is to simplify the playoffs, remove any type of points system and use a win and advance system. The biggest question remaining is do we sacrifice regular season games for a bigger playoff format. Vote in the Poll!
The playoff format will be 100% finalized and posted before the season starts.
Schedule and Game Times
We are likely going to be playing the same days and times, Sundays 6-7-8-9pm and Wednesdays 8 and 9pm.
So there you have it, some new things to look forward to for Season Seven. Text me (Gus) at 705-380-3345 or email email@example.com anytime with questions or to get your name in the Draft.
