Tier II Girls Rule Changes:
On June 9, 2018, USA Hockey approved a proposal to allow 12U players to play up on a 14U team with the following conditions :
The play up rule for 12U to 14U. The rule that was passed for the 2017-18 season did not allow any 12U players to play up on a 14U nationally bound team. This rule now states that for the 2018-19 and 2019-20 seasons for Girls 14U Tier II only, an Affiliate may permit up to 3 players that are 12 years of age for the current season (as defined in the Youth/Junior Age Classification chart in the Annual Guide) to be rostered on a Girls 14U Tier II team if the younger players are needed to field that team with a roster size recommended by the ADM or there is no 12U team available in the local geographic area. The exact language is on page 157 of the 2018-19 Annual Guide.

Not all of us have access to a local TV station but with the Olympic Win by the ladies, it is giving a boost for our grass roots efforts. I think our committee member Kris in Indy did a fabulous job promoting what she does best.
Thanks for everything, you all are doing-Great job. Kris on your interview. Don’t forget about “learn to play” coming up next week. Try to use as many older female players and female coaches to assist with the young ladies that attend-makes them feel more secure as you probably already know.
