Section 2: Player/ Administration Requirements

Weekly Administration:

There are no exceptions to the game status protocol. Each participant MUST follow these simple steps or risk not being permitted to participate in the event (liability reasons).

TWO business days before each game, rostered members of a program will receive an automated email (from the CH website) each containing a hyperlink. The players are to follow that hyperlink to the CH website where they will be asked to electronically accept the terms and conditions of the personal injury waiver and record their attendance "yes or no" for that particular game (this is mandatory for all players to be allowed to participate).

A new game request email will be issued for each game. The hyperlink contained in those emails is unique (to that game date only) and can be revisited at any time to adjust your playing status. HINT: Do not delete the game status emails until the game has been played. This way a player will be able to keep their playing status current and up to date (right up to game time).

By keeping accurate attendance, the convenors can then use the CH website to fill any roster vacancies, ensuring the games are fully populated and always at a superior level to other organizations!

Players who continually fail to accurately report their playing status may face game suspensions and or expulsion from the group. We've made this super easy for you, please do your part to keep our programs strong!


Automated Emails

 From the automated emails follow the hyperlink back to the website



Attendance Confirmation

 Read the waiver, then check the agree box.

    Leave a comment if you want to communicate something (game related) to the convener.

  Are you playing? "Yes or No".




Game Status

 Return to the CH website to see your playing status.



2.1: FAILURE TO REPORT - Removal of a participant

Should a player fail to report their game playing status (electronically or verbally) over three consecutive weeks, they will be considered ineligible for participation and dropped from their team roster. Without proper communication about their playing status, they will forfeit any remaining games within that session.

If you are going to be away for an extended period, please let us know.


2.1b: FAILURE TO COMMUNICATE - Misreporting of Attendance

A player who reports on the CH attendance websystem "as playing" and does not show up for that game will be issued a warning should there be no courtesy follow up from the player as to why they were absent without adjusting their attendance online (or through an email, text or call).

After the first warning, should the player have further incidents of misreporting their attendance (without any explanation provided) - the player will be suspended from playing the next game after the incident.

CapitalHockey offers some of the best recreational hockey programs in the city. The two teams are typically fully populated at 10 players each which is a direct result of how we use the web attendance system to communicate. We've made it super simple for our players to report in (and adjust their playing status). In return we expect that they do their small part to keep our programs well populated and strong. It makes a better hockey experience for everyone involved - and only takes about 20 seconds to complete.



For all evening games the reporting deadline is 4:00 p.m. This gives the conveners time to contact spares during the work day (when they are more likely to see the notices).

After the 4 p.m. deadline, the convener will open up any roster spots to available spares. The full time player will have forfeited their roster position.

So what if I'm too late? After the 4 p.m. deadline, should the full time player then contact the convener by phone or email (or update their playing status on the CH website) the player may be asked to not participate should a spare have already been added to the roster. It is your responsibility to keep the conveners informed of your playing status (on time). Note: the game status emails are sent out 2 business days prior to each game - there really aren't any excuses for not informing us of your intentions on time.



The maximum number of players for any game is 20 skaters and 2 goalies. After the 4 p.m. reporting deadline a full time player who has failed to convey their playing status MUST have the conveners confirmation that their roster position is available before being allowed to participate in the event. Should the position already be filled by a spare player, the full time player will forfeit their position in that game.



Should a technical issue be the cause of the full time player not being able to adequately communicate their playing status - it is the full time players responsibility to advise the administrator (by phone or email) of their playing status prior to the game day reporting deadline. (4 p.m.)

Should the CH website or reporting tool not be functioning properly - the administrator (only) will advise the participating members. If the problem is globally affecting the entire network, they will temporarily relax the game day reporting deadline restrictions.
