Rule Changes Considered For 2019

The GHTFA is pondering a couple of Rule Changes at this season's AGM that could come into play for the 2019 season.

THe first is to add a rule that the Hamilton League added some time ago, to make converts live. Accordingly, if the defense should legally gain possession of the ball during a convert attempt and return the ball to the line of scrimmage, the defense would claim the points of the convert attempt.

The second would be to add a limited overtime to regular season games, in an effort to end some of the tie games that the Association has seen. As proposed, should a game be tied at the end of regulation, the two teams would alternate turns and taking three convert attempts, for one or two points at the offense's discretion. After each team has had the three attempts, if one team is ahead, they're the victors. If both teams are still tied, the game ends in a tie. As the Association is constrained by the time limits of the field permit, a play-until-someone-wins option is not a possibility.

These rule changes will be voted upon at the GHTFA's AGM later this spring.
2019 Training Camp Scheduled

Preparations for the 2019 Vipers season will get underway On Sunday, April 6th, 10:00am at Central Park. With Easter coming late this year, this will provide two solid days of practice before a break for the holiday. As there will be a minimum of new players for this season, I'd like the focus of this year's practices to be tightening up the offence so that our routes are crisp, and on defense to work on implementing the 3-3 more into the game. The way the Offenders used Corner routes to shred our defense, we can't rely on a 4-2 on every down.

Please do your best to make yourselves as available as possible for all practices. In order to be prepared, we'll need more practices with 18 players as opposed to 8.
