Welcome to the 2018-2019 Season
For the 2018-2019 SCTA season there are many changes in the league.  Many new initiatives have been put into place including:

1.       Gamesheet Inc. – This year the league will be using Electronic game sheets.  This will alleviate many challenges obtaining game sheets into the convenors and recording statistics in the Minor Midget and Midget divisions.  Training is both online and in person.  We are looking for 100% adoption of the new software by all centres.  If you have any questions, please contact your Centres SCTA representative.

2.       Game On Streaming – GOS has become a partner with SCTA.  This will allow for all games to be streamed to parents, grandparents or friends who cannot make a game in person.  GOS is working with all Centres and Communities in obtaining the permission to place their equipment into the arenas around the league.  More information will follow as this initiative advances.

3.       Season schedule – The season dates is found on the SCTA website.

4.       Game Lengths – this season the game lengths have been set by the league with only 5 minutes of flexibility provided to the Centres.

5.       Playoff Format – the Qualifier structure remains in place for the Novice to Minor Peewee Divisions.  A round robin format is now in place for Peewee to Midget.

6.       Rules of Operation - The Rules of Operation, including playoffs, game lengths, tie breakers, Bantam Combine and Midget All Star games for the league are posted on the SCTA website.  Everyone associated with the league are encouraged to familiarize themselves with the Rules.

The SCTA executive and the Centres representatives have worked hard to make these changes to our league to further the development and overall enjoyment for the players, coaches and parents.  Good luck to all teams for the upcoming season.
