Notice of Motion:
Motion to suspend St. Mary Minor Hockey bylaw Article 18.5 for the 2022-2023 season.
The bylaw currently reads “The six (6) elected members of the [coaches] committee are not eligible to apply for a head coaching position with an “BB” or “AE” team.
There has only been one (1) candidate apply for the position of head coach of the U11 B team for the 2022-2023 season. This individual is currently a member of the coaches committee. The coaches committee has spent over three (3) months searching for a suitable candidate to coach this team, with no successful outcome. By suspending this bylaw article for the coming season, a suitable coach would be eligible for the position, to ensure team organization can commence and there are no delays to this team’s start of the season.
