LEGENDS HOCKEY INFORMATION
We like to have 20 skaters
in our games, and we do often have openings. We use an on-line system
Here’s the details:
and HOW OUR SPARES SYSTEM
Please save this email for
We have organized three
games a week, Mondays 2pm and Fridays 1pm at Sandy Hill Arena,
Wednesdays 3pm at Ottawa U. (Season runs September to April!)
All the games have 20 full-time skaters and 2 goalies, but we
often have openings for SPARES. The games have players in
the 55-75 age range, non contact, no slapshots, no refs, different
teams balanced and set each week. (Beer upstairs after the game!)
THE 20skaters.COM SYSTEM
We use an on-line system called 20skaters.com,
we try to always have close to 20 skaters but never more. You
must be REGISTERED on 20skaters.com (NB
When you register pick a Username that resembles your actual name
so we know who’s who).
Full-timers will get a
notice a week ahead of the game, telling them they are in the game, and
giving them a link to DECLINE if
they can’t play. This opens up space for spares!
JOINING A GAME: There are
separate spares lists for each game, if you want to be added to a
particular day email back.
Invitations are emailed to
the spares list 5 days before the games so that you can join a game.
Spares cannot join a game
until the invitation has been sent.
Spares pay on-line, if the cost
If you are on
the spares list you will get an invitation email whether there is room
or not. You can use that email to access that game.
Only one invitation will be
sent, and players drop out at different times, so check regularly to see
if space has opened up, right up to
CANCELLING: If you join a
game as a spare and then have to cancel, you cannot cancel on-line, you
have to send me an email ( email@example.com )before
the game and a refund will be issued.
Wednesdays: Park in the lot
off Mann Ave, then go to the front desk and ask for a yellow pass under
Tom Evans. Put it on your dash, it’s good for all the games until the
end of the year. Don’t forget! (If you get a ticket there are ways to
fight it, ask).

If you would like to join
the full-time roster, we have openings from time to time. Then you

There is to be no pushing/shoving/punching. If you feel another player

There is compensation for the few guys who deal with the website, make
the lines and ensure we have goalies each week, by giving a discount off
the fees. If you would like to do this say so.
