League Policies & Rules

Captains

The Division Coordinator is responsible for ensuring there are Captains for each team before the season begins. If a team is selected without a Captain, the team shall elect a captain before the first game. Captains are responsible for conveying information to each team member such as League announcements, rescheduled games, etc. Captains are also responsible for providing the team roster, including substitute players and goalies, to the scorekeeper prior to the start of the game and checking accuracy of score sheets immediately following the game. If a discrepancy in the score sheet exists, the Captain should contact the League Statistician on behalf of the team.

  • The Captain makes the decision regarding substitute skaters.
  • The Captain, or the designated alternate in the absence of the Captain, shall be authorized to speak to the referees during the game concerning matters of rule interpretation only.
