Team Selection Process

After a fair amount of discussion amongst the LPCC Board, a new procedure will be implemented this year to determine League teams.  A new procedure was developed because it was felt that players were being forced into specific positions and both skips and players were reluctant to suggest re-arrangement of team positions.  The new team selection procedure is designed to identify which players make up a team.  Each team is then to sort out player positions amongst themselves and can change those positions from one game to the next as they see fit.

The team selection process will go as follows:

Step #1) All those players who marked on their registration forms that they were willing to play the Skip position will participate in a draw to determine whether they will be a Skip or not.  Those that are chosen to be Skips will not participate in the team selection process until the final step below.

Step #2) Each beginner player will draw a team number randomly from a set of team tags.  The team tags will be numbered from 1 to TBD and duplication of team numbers will be minimized as much as possible to reduce the number of teams with more than one beginner.

Step #3) All remaining players (including those who failed to become a Skip in Step #1) will draw a team number from another set of team tags.  These tags will be made up of the remaining positions available for each team excluding the Skip position.

At this point, we should have TBD number of teams with 3 players each (2 if membership numbers are such that we are required to have three player teams).

Step #4) Each Skip chosen in Step #1 will then choose a team number from a set of team tags with no duplicates.  This will identify which Skip belongs to which set of players.

Each team will then need to discuss their desired playing positions and the Skips will make final determination as to what positions the players will play for each game.
