Each team will have a team number assigned by the League Registrar and the number assigned is for the seasonal year. This number is blind picked at the coaches meeting or skills evaluation.
Each team in the upper divisions U11 thru U19 is allowed 5 retentions. In the lower divisions, U7 thru U10 they are allowed 3. The League Registrar must approve these retentions.
Only the following are eligible for the draft:
Player must be registered in the league.
Physically attend skills evaluation. (If a player does not attend skills evaluation the player may not be retained, nor drafted, they can only be drawn from the hat, no exceptions).
The draft will start promptly on time as announced to all Coaches. Coaches not present or who do not have a representative present will have their players drawn by a designee of the Board of Directors.
Assigned team numbers (which were blind picked at skills evaluation) will be listed numerically on a board and number of retention players shown. An example is shown below. The "X" represents the approved retentions.
