We have had a great start to our Men's League! Everybody has had very competitive games and seem to be having a good time.
Having said that, I do want to mention the concerns I have to this point:
(1) Language! Overall very good. Just keep working on other things to say when you are upset.
(2) Attitude towards our officiating. Myself and Noah will be doing the majority of the officiating. Unfortunately very few referees wish to come help me with Adults. What does this say about how we behave during a competitive game. I'm not complaining at this point as I feel 99% of you have been very good! The 1% needs to understand that this is a League that tries to let you be competitive at your present age while getting a good work-out. Winning is something we should try for ever time we play, but we should be able to handle defeat when it does happen.
(3) I also need to have each team paid in full before December 31st. I will pull your team from the schedule if this is not done. I could go into the financials of this league if you wish, but I promise you that the Management of the Elite would not be upset if I told them we were going to do away with this League.
I enjoy being part of this league by organizing and refereeing and hope to continue it every year. I hope you continue the good start we have had and make it a League we can all be proud to be part of!
