    The new Rating Committee chair, Keith,  agreed to develop an improved player rating process for use by the Rating Committee in the next rating cycle.

    Considering that subs as well as team players will be required to pay next season, the board agreed to reverse the sub section process.  Managers/coordinators will be required to select subs from Sub List 1st and if equivalent rated players are not available, then selections are made from the bye team.

    Recreation league managers and the respective league coordinators will determine which one of the them will have responsibility for selecting subs.

    Next season, team players will pay $45 and subs will pay $20
