Draft procedure:

  1. The Draft will go 10 rounds for Tier 2 and 9 rounds for Tier 1 until all players are picked.
  2. Tier 2 will pick first and complete the first round, then Tier 1 will complete their first round. Alternating between tiers will continue until all players have been picked. Use the other Tier’s time to think about your picks.
  3. Picks will go 1-6 then 6-1 in the first two rounds, and this snaking system will continue for all rounds.
  4. Each team will have 2 minutes to make its pick when their turn comes. The timer will tell you when one minute is left, and will remind you when 30 seconds are left. You must make your pick at the end of the 2 minutes or lose it.
  5. All teams will be provided with a Draft Grid to keep track of each team’s picks.

Player restrictions:

  1. A player whose dad is coaching is designated a round where he MUST be picked up by his dad, or he will be made available to other teams. This player cannot be drafted by any other team before his designated turn has come. NOTE: A player considered by the other coaches and the league Admin to be a first round pick cannot be protected by a parent but must be acquired through a trade (see Compensation).
  2. A team is not allowed to pick two of the goalies that tried out in the first 4 rounds. After the first 4 rounds, this restriction no longer applies.

Trades:

  1. BEFORE THE DRAFT: Teams were allowed to trade their Draft position until Friday Sep 20 and report the trade to Khalid either by text, email or phone. All teams declined.
  2. DURING THE DRAFT: Trades involving swapping the order of picking will only be allowed if the order is also swapped in the next round. For example, if team A and team B swap 3rd round picks, they must also swap 4thround picks to even it out. If wishing to make a trade when your turn comes, indicate to the Admin that you wish to make a trade offer. You will have two minutes to approach another team with the offer and report a trade in writing to Admin. If not done within 2 minutes, the trade is null and void and you will have your usual 2 minutes to make your pick. Every team will be allowed one opportunity to swap order.
  3. AFTER THE DRAFT: Trades involving players will be allowed this year after the Draft. Every team is allowed one trade offer to another team. So think carefully before doing it. Every team, by draft order, will be given a chance to make a trade offer to another team and will have 2 minutes. If a trade is reported to Admin within the 2 minutes, Admin will assess the fairness of the trade and either accept or reject it. Do not waste everyone’s time with lopsided trades. All trades involving players have to be appoved by Admin (Khalid, Abdullaah & Dawoud).

Compensation:

  1. If the son of a coach is considered by the other coaches and league Admin to be a first round pick, he cannot be protected by his dad. Instead, any team picking him up before his dad picks has to trade him to his dad, in exchange for compensation as determined by league Admin. Below is the compensation determined for this year’s draft.
