President Report - Ryan Wallis
Ryan stated there was not much to report due to the short season. There was one suspension due to an exhibition game being played prior to approval from Hockey Sask.
There was nothing to report due to no season last year.
Hockey Sask Report
Hockey Sask is now the official name after SHA became associated with Saskatchewan Health Authority.
As of right now there does not seem to be anything in respect to masks, mini leagues or forced vaccines in order for players to play games. This may change at a later date.
There were 2 new votes this year. The first vote was to rid the weighted votes. This will allow each minor hockey association one vote only. The second vote was originally passed but will be re-opened in the Hockey Sask AGm in the spring. This vote will rework the current board of 16 zone managers and 7 officers to have 9 total board members. This will allow the board to focus on policies while the Hockey Sask staff will handle rules and regulations. It has been stated that perimeters will be made to ensure small towns don’t get lost or lose out during votes.
The terms in the 9 person board would be as follows:
3 board members who are 1st year
3 board members who are 2nd year
3 board members who are 3rd year
This will help keep the board members rotating and fresh .
The changes to the rules and regulations this year include
