REP Program/Covid

  • Players that had to withdraw from the regular season can now be put on the spare list
  • Fast Passes - Return to your Team Rep
  • Masks still Required inside LRC and in the dressing rooms at this time 
  • Masks on still if you are checking on the game before you from your room!
  • NO Beverages on the bench!
  • If you are feeling sick, STAY HOME-BOOK A SPARE! Let’s stay safe! Self Screen before game days please!


  • There has been an increasing amount of verbal jarring between some players on the benches as well as towards the officials. 
  • This needs to stop immediately. 
  • This is a recreational/gentlemen's league and we should be treating everyone with respect on and off the ice. 
  • Team reps - Please reinforce this message with all of your players, it is your responsibility to keep your bench under control. 
  • Our Ref Coordinator, Bryan Evans, does his best to get out as strong of pairs of officials as we have available that weekend. 
  • Respect these guys as they do a pretty good job putting up with us on a week to week basis! 
  • Remember they are beer league officials just as you are a beer league player! Mistakes happen, calls sometimes are missed just as you miss the net often (not me though!!)
  • We have to be out of the late games 2 dressing rooms BY 11:45pm! They are no longer warning us, but fining us 1 hour min OT. 

Player Safety

  • The compete level is always higher at playoff time. 
  • Again, remember that we all work the next day; 
  • Sometimes it’s better to back off a bit on a tight play and avoid a nasty collision and risk injury to yourself, a teammate or an opponent. 
  • Look out for one another out there. If you find yourself getting a little “pissy”, take a shift off or go cool off in the dressing room.
