Aberdeen Puck Drops Monday - All Players Must Read
The Road to the WAG Cup Starts Monday.
The puck drops on LUG Hockey's 9th season in Aberdeen on Monday. This is the largest year in Kingston yet and game-in, game-out we know the stands will be full of scouties and rockets.
Before the season starts, we have a few important things to let you guys know on our new partnerships, LUG's Code of Conduct, and the Road to the WAG...
All players must register before stepping on the ice for game #1. Link below.
Code of Conduct & Alcohol Policy
The City of Kingston and LUG Hockey have a ZERO tolerance policy for alcohol, drugs, and reckless behaviour at the rinks.
The City of Kingston has made it clear that if anyone is caught drinking at the rink or on the bench they will shut us down. LUG is going to be being watched very closely due to issues in previous years and it would obviously be a pretty huge sewer if LUG got shut down in Kingston.
The rule is simple. Play puck at the rink, leave the party to the bars. Any team caught drinking at the rink will be kicked out of the league without refund.We know this rule sucks but we can't jeopardize everyone's season for a couple of guys who don't listen. We appreciate your understanding in this.
Breaking Up A Big Division
Given the record breaking size of this division, we are open to the possibility of splitting the group into A & B Divisions. Any teams or captains concerned about getting pumped each night should email Liam, firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know. If your squad would want to play in a B division let us know!
If there are A & B divisions, this is how it would work.
Two separate set of standings. B Division teams will play 75% against B division, 25% cross-over games against lowest A division teams. Top 2 teams in B would advance to A division playoffs for a chance to play in the WAG. We can move teams mid-season if we are seeing competitive imbalances. Nothing would be set in stone, we'll do what makes sense.
Jerseys & Welcome Package
The division size exceeded our early season estimate and since jerseys were ordered in advance we have rushed an order for the last 4 squads. We anticipate all team jerseys being ready for week 2. Reach out to Cam, Liam, or John to request your jersey colours. All sets are 15 + 1 G.
Each team will receive a welcome package in late October that includes custom LUG gym bags and a mix of hats and visors.
Custom Team T-Shirts
New for this season are our Custom Bar Down team T-shirts. Teams can order a set of shirts created with your LUG Team's name and colours so you can rep your squad at the bar, the gym, and on T-dates. The photo is an example of the Liquor Falcons from St. George.
Team shirts must be ordered in a set of 16 and cost $320 for the set.
Any team interested in ordering should email email@example.com before October 16th.

The WAG CUP
The most un-extraordinary trophy in all of university sports is up for grabs in March. The 3rd Annual WAG CUP will take place in London on March 24th, 2018. The winning teams of all LUG divisions will be invited to London for an all-inclusive weekend of hockey and partying. All players who present their PLUG card will receive free entry to all events.
Since The College Alecoholics lost the WAG Cup last year (nice job lads), we will be getting a newer, bigger, and easier to drink out of Cup for the boys this year.
Even if your team doesn't make it to the WAG, this promises to be the best rip of the season and we encourage all teams to make the trip to London. If there is interest, we will organize buses for players, girlfriends, and friends from Kingston to London for the weekend.
