Trevor gave a verbal report. He asked that all volleyball coaches send in their season score sheets. This year coaches were not good at getting them in. Track and field, female throwing the javelin weight has been changed. The hockey tie break was extended, and the fighting and instigator rule will follow along with HockeyNova Scotia. There will be two divisions in Rugby. Jackie Ashford Ray is now Chair of the Board of NSSAF.

 

8. COORDINATORS REPORTS

 

a. Boys Hockey HW: Mike Smeltzer/Frank Hubley

 

Frank says things are going well and 4 officials are working well. Dave discussed the boys tournament in the Bridgwater, his team played a team from Slovenia, they had 22 players dressed and should only have 20. Were they sanctioned?

 

b. Girls Hockey-  JLI: David Algee

 

Discussed the possibility of not allowing the Major Midget girls play? Need a little feedback from the coaches.

 

 

c.  Boys Volleyball CIT:  Trevor Doyle

 

The two tier system seemed to work well. How will the league be divided next year? Not sure yet.         It would be helpful to get some feedback from coaches on this issue. I will send out a league report.

 

d. Girls Volleyball SHS: Jill Jeffery

 

I will send out a written report next week. All-star game is still on December 8th. Paying up front for refs worked well in both leagues. Next year I will start off with a tip off tournament for seeding and probably make two divisions. Make sure you send a rep to the meeting at the beginning of the season. A coach or an AD needs to be there. AD's need to be involved anytime a game is changed.

 

e. Girls B Volleyball ES: Tamara Muise

 

Good league in terms of schedule. Citadel and JLI possibly should be able to play up. They did not have much competition in this league.

 

f. Boys A Basketball CIT: Steve Harris

 

Each Sunday I will send out two attachments one is a scheduled and one is the standings. Make sure AD's are involved in any changes. Make sure full names are on score sheets.

Not present.

 

h. Boys B Basketball FOUNT : Jason Scott/ Peter Moores

 

Cole Harbour vs. Carrefour, Cole Harbour vs PA, Auburn vs PA still need to be played or reported.
