From information mailed to Team Managers 11/5/2009 from LPH:
Greetings from Let's Play Hockey. The 2009-10 season is here and we're excited for our 38th year as the longest-running hockey newspaper in the nation. To help us make the upcoming season our best ever, we're looking to you, the members of youth hockey community, for your submissions to LPH. Below are several notes on how you can contribute to Let's Play Hockey in 2009-10.
* First, the youth hockey community is the lifeblood of Let's Play Hockey and we want to make sure your association's coaches, managers and parents know how to submit their stories and photos to us. Articles are printed based on when they are received by Let’s Play Hockey. If you’re sending a photo (300 dpi high resolution), the ideal length is about 180 words. In the final sentence of the report, include the names of each player and coach on the team. If you don’t have a photo, the ideal length for a quarter of a page is 500 words. Send the article as plain text or as a Microsoft Word attachment. Send the photo as a JPG or TIFF attachment (not as part of a document). Send it to
* In addition to submitting stories/photos, we enlist youth hockey coaches and managers as rankers for the official Minnesota youth hockey rankings that appear in each issue LPH. As always, our rankers are anonymous. If you want to become a ranker, send a note to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please provide your current position on your team and your team name.
* We need to provide our rankers with as many scores as we can to get them to take notice of teams, perhaps your own team. Team managers or coaches should email a team’s weekly scores each week by noon on Mondays. Don’t forget to include the level of play. Only send the previous one week’s scores, from the previous Monday through Sunday.
