Greetings District 15,
PLEASE check your game schedules. IF you are hosting a non district team, PLEASE check the list of teams to verify that your opponent has a team created in the Exhibition season.
MN Exhibition Season Teams 2022-2023
IF the team is not listed, PLEASE complete the Gamesheets request form to have a team CREATED in the exhibition season.
District 15 Gamesheets Requests
PLEASE do this BEFORE friday each week. I will NOT be able to create games over the weekend at the last minute.
The list of teams also shows how many players a team has rostered, if it shows 0, then you should plan ahead to get the rosters loaded. You can do that two ways...contact the team directly and ask them to load their teams (they will need their invitation codes in order to do that) OR input the roster on the ipad the day of the game.
Please let me know if you have any questions!
District 15 President
1) Gamesheets can only calculate penalty minutes in number form. So the options for penalty lengths for DISTRICT games have been changed to only 1.5, 2, 5 or 10. For a game misconduct penalty, they should put 10 minutes in the penalty length and then find the Game Misconduct option in the penalty descriptions. This will help with calculating FPP correctly.
2) For PeeWee/12U and lower, we are using 1:30 penalties instead of 2:00 penalties. Therefore, the number of minutes allowed per level has been adjusted to the amounts below per level.
3) PLEASE take a look at your score sheets at the end of each game and notify Carmen Johnson or Cyndi Young right away if there is an error with your FPP. We want to avoid going back through all games at the end of the season :-)
4) You can view your district standing and how many FPPs you have received on the District website in the GameSheets Widget, please refer to these standings ONLY.
On another note, at the end of each weekend we look through the scheduled games vs completed games on our district account. If game scores are missing, we will email each team to figure out why we are missing those games. A couple things to do to help with this situation.
1) Don't leave the rink without receiving an email scoresheet. If you don't get an email and you know they used Gamesheets, then the game probably didn't get posted correctly. PLEASE check your phones before you leave the rink so we don't have to chase the scoresheet down.
2) Please make sure you use the scheduled game and not create a new one if there is already one there!! Check first for a pre scheduled event, then, if there isn't one there, you can create a new one.
3) We realize that we live in MN :-) there are games that will get changed! Any changes to district games must be reported by completing the District 15 Gamesheets Request Form!
4) If you are not receiving emails, you probably don't have your invitation codes set up correctly. Please note, you need to have invitation codes put in for District Games, Non District Games and EACH Tournament that you attend. If you are missing tournament score sheets you need to reach out to the tournament director to get the invitation code for your team for that tournament.
We are here to help when needed. We would, however, appreciate it if you would check the District 15 website AND handbook first to see if you can find the answer. It is frustrating to get questions that are clearly stated on the website or in the handbook.
