Forms and Reports
Lacrosse in Calgary is a boundary sport. Axemen boundaries can be fond here. However, some players move addresses after playing most of their youth with another club. Some players play other sports within other club boundaries (school). These release forms are brought to the Axemen board for review. The board reviews the ramifications of each release and makes a decision on the release request at monthly meetings (Jan-Mar). The release form must be sent to the President 7 days before the board meetings so all executive can review. The release is then sent to the the self governing body (CDLA) for other club concerns and signatures. These releases usually set precedents and are reviewed thoroughly. Upon written approval, the player is released from the Axemen to other clubs. The Axemen may initiate a release due to low enrollment on any particular age group. These are yearly releases only.
Each year some players are exempt from playing in there “natural” birth age division. Common reasons are height and weight compared to the players peer group. Some are for convenience (two kids in two seperate divisons, one year apart). The process of this form is that the parent fills it out and sends it to the President of the Axemen. The Axemen president will present it to the self governing committee (CDLA) before the season starts and teams are formed (early March). Other clubs within the CDLA have the opportunity to object to this application. The Axemen, upon written notification from the CDLA, will notify the parent of the decision on the exemption. The Axemen will perform due diligence on all applications. This exemptions are only one year exemptions.
