Supplemental Discipline Rules
- If a player receives a second 10-minute misconduct penalty in a game, that player shall be assessed a game misconduct penalty.
- In addition to any sanction under school or Maine Principals’ Association rules, if any player receives a game misconduct or any penalty after the conclusion of a game, that player shall be suspended for one game and may not return to play until the player meets with his school’s athletic director and is cleared to return to play.
- If the school’s athletic director has met with the player and feels the player should be allowed to participate in future games, the athletic director shall send an email to CascoBayArena@gmail.com confirming that the athletic director has met with the player and agrees that the player should be allowed to resume play.
- Any player who receives a second game misconduct or post-game penalty in a season shall receive a minimum suspension of three games and may not return to play until he meets with his school’s athletic director and is cleared to return to play by the school’s athletic director.
- Any player who receives a third game misconduct or post-game penalty in a season shall be banned from all further participation in the Junior Varsity League.
- The intent of this rule is to avoid cheap, unsportsmanlike behavior from players, and to encourage respect for the best traditions of the game. Coaches have the responsibility for ensuring this rule is followed and we have full confidence that the athletic directors will educate and correct any such behavior from players.
- The Home Team is responsible for providing a score-sheet, game puck, timekeeper, and is responsible for emailing the game sheet and score to CascoBayArena@gmail.com. Each team should bring their own pucks for warm-ups.
- The Visiting Team is responsible for providing a scorekeeper.
- By agreement of the Athletic Directors, trainers and referees will be coordinated and scheduled by Casco Bay Arena and each school will be billed for its proportionate share of the cost.
- The Official Game Schedule can be found on our Schedule Page. If there is any inadvertent conflict with the rink calendar, the Schedule Page takes precedence and is the controlling schedule.
- In structuring our league format, we are seeking to ensure equal, competitive games among teams.
- At the beginning of the season, teams will be divided into the Casavant and Wakelin Divisions after consultation with coaches.
- Teams will play a nine-game schedule followed by a three-game playoff. Games will primarily be against divisional opponents.
- To ensure parity and competitive balance, teams may be moved up or down a division during the course of the season. Similarly, schedules may be altered to ensure competitive match-ups. Our goal in scheduling and division alignment is to ensure parity and competitive games.
- For standings purposes, the tie-breaker is in the following order: 1) lowest goals against; 2) best goal differential; 3) highest goals for; and, 4) league’s discretion as to which team played most competitively against the strongest opponents.
- To be eligible for the Championship Round, a player (other than a goaltender or Freshman player) must have played in 50% or more of the games during the season unless the player was injured and unable to play. Freshmen and goaltenders are eligible to play in the Championship Round regardless of the number of league games they have played. This rule shall be enforced by each team in the spirit of good sportsmanship.
Overtime Rules in Playoff Games
- In non-consolation games during the playoffs, if the game is tied after regulation time has expired, there will be an eight-minute, sudden-death period of 3 v 3 hockey (3 skaters and a goalie) with teams defending the far net for the overtime period (ie teams will have a “long change.”). There will not be an ice cleaning between regulation time and the overtime period.
- Similar to National Hockey League rules, if a team incurs a penalty, the format will change to 4 v 3 hockey until a stop in play following expiration of the penalty. A team will never play with less than 3 skaters and a goalie.
- If the game remains tied after the expiration of overtime, teams will proceed to a three-round (three players) shoot-out with the home team shooting first, followed by a sudden death shoot-out with each team having an opportunity to shoot in each round. For ease of reference, this is the same format (three rounds followed by sudden-death shootout) used in the National Hockey League.
- Every skater must shoot in the shoot-out before a player may shoot a second-time. Goaltenders may switch during the shoot-out.
- Casco Bay Arena will only be closed due to the most extreme weather conditions. After all, hockey is a winter sport. We will usually be open even if school is cancelled.
- If the coaches for both teams feel that the weather conditions require cancellation, the home team is responsible for rescheduling the game and the costs of rescheduling will be split by the teams. Casco Bay Arena will endeavor to find open ice for make-up games. If the game is not rescheduled, it will be considered a tie for standings purposes. The teams may use that hour of cancelled game ice at Casco Bay Arena for any purpose to keep it from being wasted (players may show up and skate).
- If only one team wishes to cancel a game due to weather or for any other reason, the team cancelling the game shall be responsible for rescheduling the game at its own cost. Casco Bay Arena will endeavor to find open ice for make-up games. If the game is not rescheduled, the non-cancelling team shall be credited with a 1-0 win for standings purposes. The non-cancelling team may use that hour of cancelled game ice for any purpose to keep it from being wasted.
- Once the game schedule is set, it will be extremely difficult to make any changes. Teams will be allowed to designate certain dates as “black-out” dates for scheduling purposes prior to setting the schedule. We will do everything possible to honor those requests. There are no ice “give-backs” or refunds once the schedule is set.
