NCL Competition Committee Elections

We are seeking highly motivated coaches who are involved with the NCL at the 14U, 16U, 19U or Senior age categories to join the NCL Competition Committee (“CC”).

Elections are being held for the following regions:
  • Ontario (one coach)
  • Alberta/Manitoba/Saskatchewan (one coach)

The term is for a period of two-years beginning December 1st, 2018. The successful candidates are responsible to help govern the growth and development of the league and are to represent their fellow coaches and clubs in the field.

The election process for the competition committee is as follows:

  • The coaches on the competition committee will be selected through a voting process.
  • Each NCL club will receive one vote for every 16U, 19U, and MLWP team they had entered in the previous season of the NCL. Each club will also receive ½ vote for every 14U club that was entered in the previous season of the NCL
  • The voting process will use a preferential voting system. Voters will rank all the eligible candidates on the ballot (example, if there are five candidates, voters would rank their choices from first through fifth). The number of first place votes will then be tallied, and if one candidate receives at least 50% of the votes, they will be elected to the committee. If no candidate reaches 50%, the candidate with the lowest number of votes will be eliminated and the votes for that candidate will be reallocated to the next ranked choice on those ballots. This will continue until one candidate has received 50% of the votes.
Coaches are asked to submit their application to no later than Thursday November 22nd, 2018. Coaches are encouraged to submit an application that includes the reasons and qualifications that merit their place on the competition committee. The applications will be sent to all voting members for their review before the voting begins.
