The BCHL’s board of governors has voted in favour of adopting a scorecard that will measure current standards across the league.
The scorecard will cover all areas of a team. this includes hockey operations, off-ice business standards and facility infrastructure.
League officials say it will be implemented this upcoming season and teams will be required to reach a certain level by the end of year four.
“The league standards scorecard acts as a way for each of our 18 teams to recognize their individual strengths and weaknesses and to work towards making improvements that will ultimately benefit their organizations as well as the league as a whole,” said CEO Chris Hebb in a release.
“It’s hard to gauge progress without measurables and this scorecard will provide that tool to each team and help guide their effort and resources towards improving their franchise.”
Player fees will be eliminated as part of the plan and all teams will have to implement video review.
The Chilliwack Chiefs implemented video review last season and a number of other teams are doing so this year.
