7. Motion by Greg Boli: Goalie Policy Change
Motion to change how LMHA restricts 'C' level goalies from playing out. As per LMHA goalie policy (November 18,2014), LMHA currently RESTRICTS goalies from playing other positions, even at the ‘C’ level.
Current PCAHA playing rules DO PERMIT goalies to play other positions on a team:
Section E Playing Rules provides in part,
- In PCAHA competition (excluding Bantam “A”, Midget “A” and Juvenile “A” games) a registered goaltender may play any other position
I propose we modify LMHA’s goalie policy to realign with PCAHA rules and permit goalies to play other positions in the ‘C’ divisions in the event that two goalies have been drafted to a team.

Please note that at the AGM, it is the memberships role to vote in the number of Directors needed to complete the 15 Voting Positions. Specific Positions ie Division Managers are not voted on, this is the role of the new executive at the first meeting after the AGM.
Joining the Executive is a rewarding experience, without these volunteers LMHA could not have over 1100 players on the ice to play hockey. Every position of the executive is a significant time commitment and if you have questions we would be happy to answer those for you. At this time of year when we are seeking new Executive members the question always arises “What positions are open?” Since we do not know until after the AGM how many Directors we will have to fill our total number of positions, this is a hard question to answer. It is discussed at the first Executive meeting and we work to find the best fit for every person. We hope you will consider joining us on the Executive. Questions can be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org or 604.881.4408.
