Z League Sub Player Policy (Effective January 1st, 2019)

The only players who can participate in a Z league game are players who are on an existing Z league roster. These rosters can be found on the official score sheets for every game at KCIC.

There are two exceptions to this policy and they are as follows:

1) A new player (not currently assigned to a Z league team) has been invited to play in a Z league game, by the Commissioner.

2) Goaltenders - if a team doesn't have a goalie - a sub goaltender can be used from any Z or C league team.

Penalty for using a non Z league player - game forfeit and the captain is required to sit out the next game. If their is a second offense, the captain sits out 2 games. In the unlikely event of a third offense, the captain will be suspended for the remainder of the season and will not be retained as a captain in the future.

An Invitation to Join a Truly Novice Hockey League

Know how to skate (a little)?  Want to play hockey but have taken a look at the lowest level and thought, “no way, those guys are too good“.  Perhaps you’ve played for a long time, but you think game of hockey has passed you by?  Maybe you never caught up with it in the first place?  But you still want to play hockey, right?
 
Here’s your chance.
 

 

The Z League!

 

 
 
The qualifications to play in the Z-League are quite comprehensive. The following criteria would allow you to play in the Z-League.
 
  • You have never played an organized game of hockey in your life
  • You currently play but have used the same stick for the past three seasons
  • You can skate backwards but it doesn’t look good
  • You are “skill challenged”
  • One trip up and down the ice and you’re gassed
  • You can’t explain what interference is
  • You are old, slow, overweight or all of the above
 
The following criteria will disqualify you from playing in the Z-League.
 
  • You can take the puck behind your net, skate around three defenders and flip in a backhander on the stick side
  • You can top shelf a slapshot from the blue line
  • You sharpen your skates more than once a season
  • You once played on a team where your pants and socks matched your jersey
 
Bottom line
 
If you’re really good, you can’t play here.
 
So, round up some of your old hockey friends and let them know about this new opportunity.
 
If you are already on a Bob Klem team, you may be invited to join the Z League.  If you are not registered to play for a KCIC Adult Hockey team but believe the Z League is right for you and wish to play, you must register.  Either way, YOU MUST REGISTER TO PLAY.  The cost is $490 for a 24 game season plus playoffs.  Registration is now available (see links above and below).  While specific team participation is not guaranteed, if there are specific players or captains you'd prefer to play with, you'll be able to indicate that preference when you register.  Once available, you'll be contacted by your team captain, plus rosters will be posted here. 
 
If you're a Bob Klem league player who thinks he or she is more suited for the Z league, simply register to play in the Z League.  If you'd like to be considered to play in both the C and Z Leagues (which requires registering to play in both leagues), please contact League Commissioner Tom Prendergast at tpkcmsbl@aol.com to determine if you qualify.
 
Note that the intent is to strictly adhere to the intended level of play in this league.  Should the commissioner rule that you are not eligible to be a Z League player, you WILL NOT be allowed to play.  The commissioner's decision will be solely made, harsh, and final.  If you are told you cannot play in the Z League, take it as a complement on your level of play.
 
For the rest of us, it should be a whole lot of fun!
