Timekeeper Clinic info

Posted by Andre Leduc at Sep 26, 2022 6:00AM PDT ( 0 Comments )

Some of you have reached out to me over the past few months, enquiring
about any upcoming hockey timekeeping clinics.

I will be hosting one on Monday, October 3rd at 6:30 p.m. at Lo-Ellen
Park Secondary School (Lecture Room 319) – cost is $5

This is a beginner’s clinic and will cover off the operation of the
Harris Scoreboard as well as completing both the Gamesheet on line
scoring app, as well as having at least some understanding of how to
complete a paper-based scoresheet (there is plenty of overlap between
paper and on-line)

At 8:00 p.m. or so, anyone interested in sticking around (or more senior
timekeepers wishing to stop by) will be treated to a more advanced
scorekeeping discussion – how to handle three penalties in the box at
once, how to put up a 3:00 straight time penalty, understanding the new
penalty codes, some of the trickier parts of Gamesheet, etc…

I will also be posting a notice of this clinic on and
sending off a link to all local associations

Kindly confirm if you are able to attend or not

2022-2023 Q&A

Posted by Andre Leduc at Sep 22, 2022 5:11AM PDT ( 0 Comments )

NCHA board of directors have received an overwhelming number of inquiries and we’d like to answer them with a series of Q&A

Q- Now that the tryouts are nearly completed for NCHA’s AAA & AA clubs, do we know how many A teams will be iced?

A-Each year the board is faced with this question, and we won’t know this until we see the number of players and the talent pool that will remain at each level.

Q- If you ice more than 1 club in any category, how will these teams be split.*

A-The simplest way to divide these teams is to split them East (Nickel Centre to Val Caron) and West (Lively to Blezard Valley). These clubs would be made up of Minor and Major aged players.

Q-If you do have more than 1 club at any given level, will they be divided into Minor and Major Categories.*

A-Due to the fact that they’re isn’t enough competition for Minor A teams in the Nickel District League, NCHA wouldn’t support this approach.

Q-Have you secured potential coaches should NCHA proceed with additional teams.*

A-We are very fortunate that we have a pool of coaches who have stepped up to take these additional teams should we go that route.

Your NCHA board of directors.*
