Arriving To Games On Time
Traffic volume in the Lower Mainland has increased over the years, therefore it has become more important for teams to ensure they provide enough time to arrive at the field prior to the scheduled start time.

Most fields now have a practice pitch to allow for teams to warm up in advance of the game, Teams should take advantage of this by arriving to their game early.

Maximum (7) Goal Difference Rule
Just a reminder to all coaches of the (7) goal difference ruling.

This league is for development purposes, and that “running up” game scores should not occur. If the final game score difference is (8) goals or more, the winning team will forfeit the game and it will be recorded as a 3-0 loss. Note, both teams are reporting the final game score.

There are a few things you can do to avoid running up a score verses a weaker developing team. The two main points are:

1. Encourage players to play possession game, with distribution of the ball
2. Play defenders on the forward line and forwards on the defense lines.

Finally, a great deal of time and effort was placed at the beginning of the season to ensure parity within the divisions so that teams were assigned to the correct Tiers. We will continue to monitor this throughout the season to ensure all games are as competitive as possible.

Have a great season,
GVJFHL
