As every association will be required to provide a governor this year is there somewhere we can find a brief description of all the duties that a governor is required to do. How many meetings in the year they must attend and so on?

Friday, September 10, 2010

The Governors, Senior Governors, and Executive Duties are described in the 1660 Regulations posted on the website at http://www.1660.ab.ca/default.aspx?p=bylaws.


1660 Regulations state to use a 3 minute penalty when playing run time, but website only offers a 2, 4, 5 and 10 minute penalty...please clarify.

Tuesday, April 27, 2010

We record any minor penalty as 2 minutes in the website. The reason being that we do not distort the penalty severity or the statistics for the players being assessed the minor penalties. Therefore, we ask that a 3 minute served penalty should still be recorded as a 2 minute minor on the website. It will have nothing to do with the time keepers or the game sheets as the actual game sheet will remain the official record of the offences with the 1660 league and with Hockey Alberta. The website will not be used for the review or assessment of penalties.


When you say you want the gamesheet input (in its entirety, what do you want included? Score, goals, assists, penalties?

Tuesday, April 27, 2010

We would like all sections of the game sheet to be completed in its entirety including Score, Goals, Assists, and Penalties. Please refer to the Managers Guidelines page for reference. There is a printable Off Ice Officials guide for your use.


As a governor I have been asked to make some game stat corrections however it does not match the game sheet that was sent to me. I would think that I am not allowed to change the game stats once it has been signed by the referees?

Tuesday, April 27, 2010

You are right. No one is able to add or change a game sheet except the Referee that called the game. The stats are only what the referee instructed the scorekeeper to put down on the game sheet. Even the time keepers are not allowed to add an assist if the referee does not tell them when they provide a number. Stats including shots on net, can only be what is on the game sheet.


What is meant when the Arena is identified as TBA?

Tuesday, April 27, 2010

Wherever the rink is identified on your schedule as TBA (To Be Advised) this means that the game has no scheduled time and can be played at any time during the season. Due to the website restrictions we have put in a bogus date and time (usually 1:00am) just to show the game needs to be played as part of the league. It is the responsibility of the home team to initiate the scheduling of this game. The (Notice of Game ChangeĆ· process should be used to complete this. Unfortunately our ice scheduler does not always have the available ice slots to be able to create the games for the entire season and ends up having to list some games as TBA. Please check your schedule to see if you have any TBA games (identified in the rink column). Just a word of caution is to get these games scheduled ASAP in order that teams are not trying to cram these in near the end of the season.


As being a new association to the league I was asked if mouthguards are mandatory.

Friday, October 8, 2010

Mouthguards are NOT mandatory in the 1660 Hockey League.


I have tried adding games and they are not appearing on the website?

Tuesday, October 12, 2010

The ability for teams to add games or practices to the website is not permitted.


As a timekeeper, when are we allowed to stop the clock...ie injuries etc..? And during the last 5 minutes of a game; if it's is stop time ...how do we apply the time for penalties? For example if a player gets a penalty during last 6 minutes of a game.

Sunday, October 17, 2010

Please refer to Section 6 of the 1660 Regulations regarding Game Times and Slots. The most important thing is as follows: "The 1660 recommends coaches, on ice officials and off ice officials discuss ice slot length, clock management and frequency of floods before every game." Penalties that accur in Run Time are 3 minutes long. Penalties that occur during stop time are 2 minutes long. This is all based on when the penalty occurs. The Referee has the final say in clock management. If he feels the clock should be stopped during a runtime game for an injury, he will advise.


I was wondering who I send the Initiation team information to? Thanks

Monday, October 18, 2010

Please see the Initiation Information tab on the website for category information and contact information.


Where do I go to enter game sheet data?

Saturday, October 23, 2010

Please contact your Governor and if not able contact Dody@1660.ab.ca


If we are attending a tournament outside 1660, who do we let know so we are not scheduled for league games?

Sunday, October 24, 2010

The 1660 Tournament Blackout Submission Form is located on the 1660 website under Forms. Please fill it out and it will be submitted to the scheduler. The earlier in the season that we are aware of the tournament the easier it is to accommodate teams.


Can I view the game sheets? If so, how?

Monday, October 25, 2010

To view games sheets on the website simply go to a schedule page and click on the Calendar looking icon next to the game RESULT.


If we show up late to a game, can my son still play? If the coach knows he's coming?

Wednesday, November 3, 2010

The "Hockey Canada Rule Book" states: "Where a player is late and his name has been included on the Official Game Report prior to the game, he will be permitted to participate". His name MUST be on the gamesheet prior to the start of the GAME! To make it easier on all people involved we would suggest that the coaches inform the officials that they have a player registered on the game sheet who will be coming late. As well, the coach should request the official inform the other coaches on the other team of what is happening to avoid an issue.


Is there a limit of players any one team may have on it their roster?

Friday, November 5, 2010

Yes. As per Hockey Alberta Regulations the Maximum allowable number of players on a game sheet is 19 (17 Skaters, 2 Goaltenders). The team itself can have a much larger roster with affiliated players, however, only 19 can be on any one game sheet. The 1660 also has rules governing the use of affiliated players (See regulations) that may restrict roster size in various Tiers.


Could you please tell me where I would find bylaws/rules that will clearly define the release of a player or admittance of a player to a hockey team outside of his/her geographical boundries. Are there are rules/bylaws that refer to "grandfathering"?

Monday, November 15, 2010

Hockey Alberta Website under the Bylaws and Regulations Section.

As it is AB, weather changes from one area to the next even within 30 miles or less. With goalies are they given equal ice time? One this game, the other the next game. What if a goalie can or does not show (coaches informed) due to injury or weather and coaches don`t allow to play next game making goalies not play for 3 games?A plays 1, B plays 2, A plays 3, B misses 4th, then isn`t allowed by coach to play next game #5 as "punishment" for not showing due to another reason whether injury, sick, injury or family plan that can not be changed and no show even to a game they would not of played in anyways?

Saturday, November 20, 2010

The league does not govern issues of this nature. This is a Team / Association Issue. Please follow your Associations guidelines setout for these types communications.


Which Goaltender is credited with a win or loss if more than one goaltender plays in a game?

Monday, November 22, 2010

A goalie win is always credited to the goaltender in net when his team scores the game winning goal. A goalie loss is always applied to the goaltender in net when his team has the game winning goal scored against. Here are some examples : i. His team scores the only goal of the game after only 30 seconds into the 1st period but the goalie gets an injury one minute later and has to leave the game. He gets replaced and the second goalie plays the rest of the game (58 min. 30 sec.). The win is still credited to first goalie despite the fact that he only played 90 seconds of the game. The only thing that matters is who was in the net when the game winning goal was scored. ii. A goalie enters the game with his team leading 2-0 and it eventually wins 3-2, he gets credited with the win. iii. The game winning goal is scored when the winning team has an empty net - the pulled goalie gets the win.


A lot of teams are not counting the # of shots on goal on gamesheets (Atom level). Our goalie would like this stat tracked. Is it appropriate for an away team to ask the home team to record this?

Tuesday, November 23, 2010

Goalie Stats should be tracked in the same manner as the Player stats. It is not at all inappropriate to politely remind the Home team to PLEASE track these stats!


What do the Acronyms mean when entering a game sheet on the website?

Tuesday, November 1, 2011

EV v Even Strength PP v Power Play SH v Short Handed PS v Penalty Shot EN v Empty Net GWG v Game Winning Goal


Are all the people in the bench supposed to be listed on the game sheet?

Friday, January 14, 2011

Yes, all bench staff needs to have the proper Hockey Alberta credentials (see HA website) and need to be properly registered on the HCR roster and on the gamesheet.


How can I order additional game sheet or Incident Report books.

Wednesday, February 22, 2012

Simply have your Association League Representative email treasurer@1660.ab.ca . Extra books are an additional cost as per the the "Team Registration" form.


Is it mandatory for coaches and managers to have a criminal record check done

Friday, October 5, 2012

Hockey Alberta has mandated that criminal record checks are required for all on ice officials and supervisors, and each association is responsible to ensure that their coaches, managers, officials etc have a positive criminal record check.


Is there a place I can get or view last years stats?

Saturday, October 20, 2012

Previous season stats can be viewed on the 1660 website, under Information, Historical Stats.


Could some guidelines be used on how to count shots?

Friday, October 26, 2012

A shot on goal is any shot that enters the net or any shot that would normally have entered the net if not stopped by the goalie. Shots that deflect off the posts or crossbar and stay out of the net are not counted as shots on goal. The number of shots and whether a shot puck counts as a shot is determined by the person running the clock.


How do I download my child's schedule onto my cell phone from your website?

Tuesday, November 19, 2013

RAMP has a feature where you can link your child's team or multiple teams schedule to your smartphone or calendar. On the homepage, Rampbook login. Sign up for Rampbook and follow the instructions.

Monday, December 2, 2013

Game-Sheets and Incident reports CAN NOT have the following special characters in the file name, otherwise the file will be corrupted. UNUSABLE File Name Characters - ! @ # $ % ^ & * ( )


I know that novice goalie stats are not required to be kept, but our goalie is a dedicated full time goalie who wants to know his stats. Is it wrong to ask the other team to enter his stats in the game sheet, even if they don't enter the home goalies stats.?

Wednesday, October 8, 2014

Since full time goalies are not advised by Hockey Alberta or 1660 Hockey League, many managers will not be familiar with keeping goalie stats, and may not keep goalie stats. You can always ask, but it is always best to keep your own stats for the goalie, since it will be the most accurate anyways.


I am trying to complete a game change form but it keeps telling me I have an invalid verification code? Is there a problem with the system or I am doing something wrong?

Tuesday, November 25, 2014

At times the system needs to have the verification code entered twice before it will be recognized. Re-enter the new verification code and hit submit.


Is a goal also counted as a shot on goal?

Thursday, October 22, 2015

Yes, a goal that has been scored is counted as a shot on net, and is entered into the website.
