      MEAHA News

      HEY COACHES!! Did you know.......

      08/14/2014, 8:15pm EDT
      By Mark Prevost

      The beginning of the 2014-2015 season will bring with it the implementation of the "new" progressive penalty rule number 411. (see below)

      This rule was implemented last year with no consequence to the reporting in the first trial year.

       

      PLEASE make your players and coaches aware of this "NEW" rule!  THIS season there will be additional game suspensions for overly aggressive players that get multiple "Major" penalties. There is also additional suspensions for coaches who's players accumulate multiple "Major" penalties throuhout the season.The rule is putting more responsibility on coaches to control players with previous penalty history. This rule has been implemented "NATIONALLY" in all of USA Hockey, with safety being the number one goal. Hopefully it will lead to a more enjoyable game for players, coaches and fans alike.

       

       

      Rule 411 | Progressive Suspensions

      (Note) USA Hockey is committed to providing a safe and fair environment for all participants. While the vast majority of player s participate within the rules and respect the game and their opponents, USA Hockey recognizes the need to hold those player s and coach es deemed to be repeat offenders accountable for their actions. Beginning with the 2014-15 playing season, the Progressive Suspensions rule will take affect nationally.

      (a) Any player  who receives their third major penalty  during the same season for any combination of aggressive infractions listed below shall receive an additional three-game suspension. For any player  who receives their fourth major  penalty  in this category, the player  shall receive an additional five-game suspension. Any player  who receives their fifth major penalty  in this category during the same season shall be suspended until a hearing is conducted by the proper authorities (USA Hockey Affiliate). These designated game suspensions shall be in addition to any other suspensions imposed through the official playing rules. The aggressive infractions that fit into this category are:

      • Rule 603 Boarding 
      • Rule 604 Body Checking (Body Contact categories)
      • Rule 606 Butt-Ending
      • Rule 607 Charging
      • Rule 608 Checking From Behind
      • Rule 609 Cross-Checking
      • Rule 611 Elbowing
      • Rule 619 Head-Butting
      • Rule 620 Head Contact
      • Rule 621 High Stick
      • Rule 627 Kicking
      • Rule 628 Kneeing
      • Rule 634 Slashing
      • Rule 635 Spearing
      • Rule 639 Tripping/Clipping/Leg Checking
      • Rule 640 Unnecessary Roughness (Roughing)

      (Note) A separate progressive suspension rule for Fighting  is covered under Rule 615(f) Fighting .

      (b) Any team that receives three major penalties in the same game shall have its Head Coach  suspended for the next game of that team. For any subsequent game where that team receives three or more major penalties in the same game, the Head Coach  shall serve a three-game suspension. For a third game with three or more major penalties by the same team during the same season, the Head Coach  shall be suspended indefinitely until a hearing has been conducted by the proper authorities (USA Hockey Affiliate).

      (Note) The role of the Official is to enforce all playing rules at all times and they are expected to strictly enforce playing rules that fall under the aggressive infraction category.  Player s and coach es must be held accountable for dangerous actions and the onus is on them to teach and play the game within the rules. Officials are required to submit a game report immediately following the game for any major  penalty  falling in the aggressive infraction category, game misconduct or match penalty  that is assessed.

      MEAHA Release Process

      03/06/2014, 4:30pm EST
      By Chris Washburn

      It's that time of year again and many of our participants are beginning the tryout process for travel teams!  Many of them will be remaining in their current associations and some of them will be looking to move to a different association.  The information below should help those participants looking to get a Release to attend tryouts in a new association.  Simply follow the steps below and the Release process should be as simple as 1, 2, 3....

      1. Verify that you don't have any outstanding monetary or disciplinary obligations to your current association.  If you do, you won't be able to get a Release!
      2. Complete a Release Form by filling in the players name, date of birth, age group and current association name.  DO NOT sign the bottom or fill-in a new association name until you are committed to a new association!
      3. Give the form to your current association President for signature.  (He/she will verify that there is no monetary or disciplinary obligation outstanding prior to signing)
      4. Take the signed form to the tryout/s of your choice.  You MUST have this form before you will be allowed to tryout for any association other than your current association.
      5. If you are offered a position and accept it, complete the remainder of the form and provide it to your new association!  If you aren't offered a position or choose not to accept an offered position you can simply tear up the form and return to your original association.

      Simple right!
