Update on Schedule and Rosters (Winter 2017-18)

Just to keep everyone in the loop. We will be sending the final schedule to all captains and posting it to the website on the weekend.

The schedule has been a major challenge this season because the league was cut by two teams and we had to do a major revision. We are also going through it closely to do our best to make sure there is a balance of Sunday games across the league. This too, is a major challenge because every time we move one game it has an impact on two other teams. It is a huge headache done completely in the name of balance.

The rosters have also been a major issue because even up through this past Sunday afternoon we had players leave the league due to injury and for personal reasons. We don’t want to send the rosters to our webmaster or stats guy until we are relatively certain we have them finalized. We also don’t have the team numbers from all of the captains yet. The idea is to send complete rosters with numbers to the webmaster and stats guy one time only for simplicity. We also had one team that needed a uniform change due to a couple of unforeseen issues.

Ultimately, we are almost through this massive process. To conclude, all seems to be in good shape on the ice and the games have been positive, which is the real purpose. We will work through these final pieces and everything will continue in a positive way as always.

Thank you for your patience,

The ARL Committee
