We are certainly fortunate to have so many talented hockey players participating in our adult league at KCIC. Actually it's truly amazing!
In addition to some of the top players in the area, we also have many newcomers to the sport, who are just getting their feet wet, so to speak.
And in between we have all sorts of players who fall into the middle category.
That's the main reason we offer as many different leagues as we do. The system works well when all of our teams are competitive and the players in each league are on par with their opponents.
Problems arise when a really good player is asked to sub in a league in which that players skill level exceeds the other players on the ice. You don't have to be a former NHL scout to spot the player on the ice who can go end to end, at will and never break a sweat. So for that game anyway, the rest of the players can only watch in awe as that sub player dazzles with their superior stick handling abilities and top shelf shot!
Our captains (who by the way do a terrific job), are the first line of defense in maintaining a competitive roster and insuring that their players are in compliance with the other teams in the league. But sometimes the wrong player will be recruited to sub, while the teams captain is not at the game and the desire to win overtakes the common sense mentality that the league relies on for all teams to follow.
It's summer time and thankfully, families are once again going on vacations. Making sure your adult hockey team has 10 skaters is low on the priority list - to be sure. The league understands this and realizes how difficult it is sometimes to get two lines!
But at the same time, this is not an opportunity for teams to bring on players that elevate their team to the next level. If that's the case, then the league will simply move the offending team - to the next level!
As a courtesy (in addition to being a league rule), teams are required to notify the other teams captain prior to the game that they are using a sub player. This captain has the right to veto the sub player prior to the game.
Failure to announce a "sub player" will result in a forfeit loss to that team.

Update for today - Wednesday August 4th at 6:00am
At this time today's games are on as scheduled
A current USA Hockey Membership required to play on a team at KCIC and it's time to renew for the 2020-2021 season.
Sub player policy - if a team needs to pick up a sub player for a game, the team picking up the sub is required to notify the opposing captain and get their permission. The penalty for using an "un announced sub" is a 3-0 loss.
12/8/2020 - League disclaimer - in order to maintain a proper competitive balance the league reserves the right to change a teams schedule or move them into another division altogether, based on their top players skill level. Teams need to play in the league that their top player (s) skill level dictates.

KCIC Adult Hockey Commissioner
Phone: 816-898-1816 email: firstname.lastname@example.org
We certainly appreciate your business and we are grateful that you have selected to pay to play in our league! So first and foremost, you are a customer. We realize that without paying customers – we couldn’t stay in business.
Our league is governed by USA Hockey rules and regulations and every participant is required to have a current USA Hockey membership - which you can purchase through their website.
In addition you must agree to abide by our rules and regulations.
Main points of interest – we are a no check league and don’t allow fighting. Both are big no no’s and violators will be tossed from the game and potentially from the league. Our prime directive is to find a team for every player who registers in our league. To that end we offer several different skill levels.
The leagues we offer are intended to bring about the most competitive and fair teams, while at the same time allowing players to be on the same team as their buddies. Our captains are the guardians of this system and use a ranking formula to try and balance out the teams. For the most part, speed is the main factor that ultimately determines what league you play in.
Projected leagues at KCIC for the upcoming season:
Due to the number of adult teams there is no set day that any league will be scheduled for games on. These are only approximate days.
A League – games are usually played during the week
B League – games are scheduled during the week and on selected Sunday’s
Bob Klem C League (includes and upper and lower division) - Sunday’s
Z League – (This league is by invitation only) - games are played on Thursday night’s
45+ League – games are usually played during the week
In mid-November the outdoor pavilion opens and allows us some additional ice times. Please be aware that the majority of game times during the week will start after 9:00pm.
Team captains should submit their rosters with jersey and USA Hockey numbers to the rink. Please e-mail Kristi Tamez - email@example.com
Also it's very important that every player is listed on a roster. This is a pay to play league - so a financial commitment is required by all participants. Every teams roster is listed on the website and in turn, show up on every game score sheet. If your name is not listed - then your team could potentially forfeit the game.
We also require a photo ID for every player.
Finally, please keep in mind that our scorekeepers and on ice officials don't care who wins or loses, on any given night. They are providing a much needed service and any abuse to these folks will result in an immediate suspension.
If you have any concerns or complaints regarding league issues - give me a call.
Tom Prendergast - Commissioner (816) 898-1816
Wednesday November 22nd, 2017
Effective December 1st, 2017 all KCIC adult hockey players must have a photo ID (government issued) on file with the rink. If a player cannot produce this ID (or chooses not to) that player or players will not be allowed to participate in KCIC league games.
Tom Prendergast - Commissioner
New rule Photo ID: Every player who participates in the KCIC Adult Hockey League must provide a valid (government issued) photo ID. No exceptions. In the event a team requests a verification check of a player on the opposing team, the player in question must provide a photo ID as soon as the game is over and it must match, the photo ID on record. The on ice officials will conduct the ID check. If the player in question cannot provide a photo ID upon request, that player has a 24 hour window in which to submit this ID to the league commissioner. The clock starts with the end of the scheduled game time. For example - if the game started at 3:10pm on Sunday, the player has until 4:10pm on Monday to produce his photo ID. Failure to comply will result in a 1-0 loss for his team.
Note: It is the teams responsibility to make sure that all of their players are in compliance with this rule. This is not the league or the rink's responsibility. This is strictly up to team captain and players.
KCIC Championship Trophy - Chris Mentzel Memorial Cup
Adult Hockey lunch time drop-in every Friday from 12:00 pm to 1:30 pm. To be put on a list, call the rink after 9:00am on Friday. There is a limit of 30 participants. All players must be 18 years of age and wear full equipment, including a helmet.
All players must have a current USA Hockey number to participate in games!
The Men's League Schedules are under the appropriate league sections on the "Current Section" navigator box to the left.
Three 12-minute stop periods with 1 minute intermissions. Each team has 1 timeout that will last 1 minute. Note: Playoff and Championship game times will vary and are subject to ice rink availability.
Playing of the Third Period: The clock will go to run-time when there is a 6 goal margin. At the first stoppage of play when the hour/curfew clock shows five minutes of play remaining, the game clock will be reset to two (2) minutes of stop time at the referees direction, and the game shall be concluded. The hour/curfew clock starts when the Zamboni doors close after resurfacing the ice.
Overtime/Shootout Rules: There are no tie games in any of the KCIC Adult Hockey Leagues. In the event the third period ends with the score still tied, the game will move to a 5-minute, sudden death overtime, played with a numerical on-ice strength of 3-on-3 (plus the goalies). If neither team scores in overtime, there will be a 5-man Shootout. The home team will choose to shoot first or second. If there remains a tie after the five shooters have gone, the game will move to single sudden death rounds until a winner is determined. A team may not reuse a shooter in the shootout until all players on the team have shot, with the exception that if the opposing team has fewer players playing in that game, teams may reuse shooters once all shooters on the team with the fewer players have shot. Teams that win overtime or shootout games will receive a normal win (worth two points), while teams that lose in overtime or a shootout will receive an overtime or shootout loss (worth one point). Note that during the overtime period, if non-coincidental penalties are called, a penalty shot will be awarded to the non-offending team (see below), however if that team elects to take the optional minor in lieu of the penalty shot or if a major penalty or penalties are called, teams will play 4-on-3 or if necessary 5-on-3. At no time can a team play with less than 3 skaters, plus the goalie. If a team chooses to pull its goalie during overtime and the opposing team scores while the goaltender is off the ice, the team whose goalie was pulled shall forfeit the point they would otherwise get for an overtime loss, with the exception that if the goaltender leaves the ice during a delayed penalty and during the delayed penalty that team inadvertently scores into its own goal, they shall still receive the point for the overtime loss.
Penalties Near the End of the Game: Five and 10 minute penalties in the last 5 minutes of a game or overtime that do not incur a suspension will be served by the player at the start of the next game with no on-ice penalty to the player's team. Two minute penalties occurring after the game will be served in the same manner. Failure to attend the next game will count as the player penalty being served. Within the last two minutes of a game or during overtime, a penalty shot will be awarded to the offended team when a non-coincidental penalty is called. The penalty shot will be awarded in lieu the player serving time in the case of a minor penalty, while in the case of a major penalty, the penalty time must be served in addition to the penalty shot award.
Ejected players: When a player in any of our leagues receive a major or misconduct penalty (resulting in a game suspension), that player will be subject to additional game suspension(s), which may be assessed by the league commissioner.
Substitution Rule: A skater may be subbed when a team has less than 9 skaters and may only substitute up to 10. Subs must be of an equal or lower level than the league they are playing. The commissioner and opposing team captain must be informed as soon as possible to obtain and use a sub. The sub must be a registered player in the league in order to play. No outside subs are allowed. In addition, subs must be approved by the opposing team captain. The use of unregistered or unapproved subs will result in a game forfeit by the offending team and possible suspension of the offending player and/or team captain. The same rule will apply to the playoffs. Goalies are a case-by-case basis.
Note - Z league substitution requirement: only the League Commissioner may approve a sub player for any regular season or playoff game.
Age: To participate in any KCIC adult league, a player must be registered with the league and have a current USA Hockey membership, agreed to abide by the rules and signed a league waiver sheet, in addition to paying the posted players fee. All players must be 18 years of age or older to be on a team roster or fill in as a sub player.
Photo ID: Every player who participates in the KCIC Adult Hockey League must provide a valid (government issued) photo ID. No exceptions. In the event a team requests a verification check of a player on the opposing team, the player in question must provide a photo ID as soon as the game is over and it must match, the photo ID on record. The on ice officials will conduct the ID check. If the player in question cannot provide a photo ID upon request, that player has a 24 hour window in which to submit this ID to the league commissioner. The clock starts with the end of the scheduled game time. For example - if the game started at 3:10pm on Sunday, the player has until 4:10pm on Monday to produce his photo ID. Failure to comply will result in a 1-0 loss for his team.
Note: It is the team's responsibility to make sure that all of their players are in compliance with this rule. This is not the league or the rink's responsibility. This is strictly up to team captain and players.
Roster: All players who participate in KCIC adult hockey games must be on a roster. Only players who have registered through the league website (and have paid their fees) are eligible to participate. Registered players may play on multiple teams (but cannot play for two teams in the same division). For example; a player can play for 3 teams (providing they pay a league fee for each team they are rostered on) - A - B - C.
Subs player regulations - sub players can only play for a team twice in any one season.
Forfeits: If a team forfeits, they lose the game by the score of 3-0. In addition, their opponent gets the option to play their next game (as a penalty for not getting to play a game) or any other game on their schedule. In addition - the league reserves the right to suspend or remove a team from the schedule if the team is not conducting themselves in accordance with league rules.
