Minor Officials are Everyone's Responsibility

We have been receiving comments from coaches which suggest that some teams are not fulfilling their game responsibilities by providing Minor Officials.

CORA Rules & Regs stipulate that the home team is responsible for ensuring that minor officials are available, including game timekeeper, game scorekeeper, and penalty box attendants. Where possible, the visiting team may provide a minor official to assist the home team.

Granted, it is sometimes difficult to fill these positions if your team does not have a lot of steady fans BUT, it is still the duty of every team to ensure that there are people in the box and it is unfair to assume that your opponent will provide people (sometimes fans really just want to watch the game!)

If you are having trouble, try creating a “minor official schedule” and have every player on the team take a slot or two – this means it is that player’s responsibility to ensure that they provide a worker (whether they hire one, bring someone or ask someone who normally comes to games).  The slot is the player’s to fill, so if they don’t arrange to have someone there then they are responsible to work the shift.

What is CORA?
The Calgary Open Ringette Association has been formed to oversee the day to day operations of Open (+18) Ringette in Calgary.

CORA operates league play, city playoffs, registration and fee collection independent of Ringette Calgary. CORA does have a representative who attends monthly Ringette Calgary meetings to ensure that the two associations continue to work together for development of officials, coaches and our sport.

The intent of this association is to have the adults playing in it make the decisions which govern it.   We will endeavor to promote and develop competitive adult ringette in Calgary.
