Greater Edmonton Lacrosse Council Memo on “A” Division Changes
January 13, 2017
Regulation 1.04.01 as changed in the GELC regulations on November 22, 2016
If an association does not have an A team, players from that association may be sent to try out in the designated try out zone for that Association. The designated zone.
a) Zones for A division play are as follows:
b) Any disagreement or exceptions will be resolved by the Board of Directors of the GELC. All decisions will be final and not eligible for appeal.
c) If cut by the A team in their zone the player reverts back to the home club for placement.
d) A evaluations must be concluded by the third (3rd) Sunday of March yearly.
e) Remaining evaluations must be completed by the first Sunday in April.
f) Any Association within a zone may host an A team as long as they have a lower division team.
g) The zones mentioned above are for the purposes of “A” ball and have no relationship to girls divisions play.
( amended November 22,2016)
Dear GELC Members,
The GELC board of directors with careful consideration to the ongoing desire to improve Lacrosse in the Greater Edmonton area and with consideration to comments made in local clubs, the GELC A intent regulation has been removed and replaced with the regulation above.
For 2017 this means the following:
Players will be required to register in their local club.
Tryouts for A divisions teams will be held in the zone in which their club is associated with.
The Zone will be required to host at minimum a pee wee, bantam and midget team a team.
All players in the zone will be given equal opportunity to try out for a zone A team.
If a zone has enough players to make more than one A team, the try outs will be held together.
If there is more than one team in a zone the A players from the hosting teams in the zones will be required to play on their home clubs A team.
The players from the Association not hosting the team will be placed as required on either of the teams being created as determined by the zone.
At pee wee
Club 1, 2, and 3 are a combined zone
Club 1 and 3 have enough players in accordance with the GELC Tiering chart to make 3 teams each, and will be making an A team, players from club 2 will be at the evaluations and tryouts and placed on one of the two teams as required by the Zone.
Clubs hosting the A teams will be determined by the members of the zone.
Zones were created with geography and team numbers to determine a good balance in player numbers in each of the four zones created to create the best number of teams.
Should a player not be selected to play on an A team, they will be placed at the appropriate level in their home club. There will not be transfers made to other zones of players cut by their zone. Players not selected to the Zone A teams will be placed in their home club on B, or C level teams.
Should there be a need to amalgamate players at a B or C level to create a team it would be done within the described zones as well. This would only occur should a club have not enough players to form a team in a specific division, or a team at any division
Club 1 has 6 pee wee players registered they have nowhere to play in their club they would be placed on a team within the zone the club is assigned too where ever possible.
Please note at this time no girls divisions are impacted by the described zones and girls will not necessarily be amalgamated in the same zone structure
Any disputes not resolved within the zone will be brought to the GELC Board of Directors for resolution.
Therefore tryouts for Sherwood Park Titans "A" level for PeeWee, Bantam and Midget will be held February 20, 2017 to March 1, 2017.
If your child is interested in playing "A" level you MUST register before February 20, 2017 and registration fees MUST be paid before they are allowed on the field.
An additional tryout fee may be charged to cover the extra floor time costs.
If you have any questions, please contact your Division Director.
Save the Dates!
Evaluations for All Divisions "B" & "C" Teams will take place Mar 14, 17 and 18th. Practices will begin April 1-13th with the season starting April 17th. For further information or questions please contact your Division Director.
