The following is a point form overview of what the City League will be for all divisions U13 (Peewee) and below.
LMHA CITY LEAGUE
This program is the type played by the majority of our Association's players. It is hockey with the emphasis on fitness, fellowship, sportsmanship and fun through competition. The objectives are to promote a game to fit the needs of the participants, to allow players equal ice time, allow enjoyable participation, and support an individual's physical, emotional and mental development.
- Number of teams will vary year to year based on players registered.
- Will be a maximum number of games and tournaments (U13 (peewee) - 45 games (combined league plus exhibition games, 3 tournaments).
- Structured league with website scores and schedules.
- Exhibition play is strongly suggested not to exceed 100km from Lethbridge.
- Possibility of outlying communities joining the City League.
- City League will have its own discipline, code of conduct, etc.
The City League will be a league with structure, a defined schedule so you can plan other activities around hockey. Teams will be limited to the number of games they can reschedule, this will allow families to plan farther ahead than by week to week.
This is a brief overview of what the City League will be. We will continue to develop a road map to where the City League to go. From the results of the survey we feel this will be a viable solution for members of the association that do not want to play on a travel team.
