End of Winter 2017-18 – Thank You

Hello ARL Players,

Thank you to the many ARL players who joined us last night at Pub 21 for the party to close out the 2017/18 Fall/Winter season. There are a lot of people to thank for a great event last night and for a fun season.

It all starts with the drop of the puck so we want to say thank to the referees who do such a good job maintaining order and keeping the ARL games running smoothly. Their unique approach also keeps things light (most of the time). The ARL refs are a great group of people and they are truly a part of the league. They are appreciated.

Next, we would like to thank the timekeepers who show up week after week and sit in cold arena to run the clock. It may look easy but they do it well. For many, it is their first job. They are learning as they go and they are doing it for us. We are lucky to have them. A special thanks to Bruce Johnson for coordinating this group.

Unacceptable League Conduct

Hello ARL Players,

I just wanted to reach out because we have had a couple of issues this weekend that will result in suspensions and ideally we want to stop things before they escalate.

In a division 3 game a player who was playing too aggressively rode a less experienced player into the boards which has resulted in a serious leg injury. The injured player may not play again. The offending player will be dealt with. A player in a division 2 game felt the need to swear at a referee after the ref admonished him for slamming his stick against the boards following a goal. The player was ejected him from the game and will be dealt with. Continue reading “Unacceptable League Conduct”
