2014-15 Metro Select Information Update
At a board meeting March 24, Burnaby District decided that it will
consider applications from any member club to operate Metro Select teams
Rosters with at least 13 signed players are to be submitted by clubs by
April 23, 2014.
Consideration of team viability will be a major factor in determining
which teams District should affiliate with the Metro Select League.
This means that players may attend player evaluations with different clubs.
Players may be offered and accept a place on a team at one club; if they
do so they should so inform any other teams (at any level) with which
they have tried out.
The concept is similar to the approach at other levels, for example gold
(boys) or Division 1 (girls). Clubs decide after evaluations whether to
apply to affiliate a team, normally based on whether they believe they
have sufficient registered players appropriate to play at that level.
If applications are received from two clubs at the same age/gender, District
may ask the league to affiliate either or both teams.
Discussions between the District and the Metro Select Club are continuing.
