The Over 45 champions for the Fall 2011 season are the Rangers. The Rangers missing league leading scorer Andy Miska and defensive specialist Jimmie Lee had to rely on the remaining players to clinch the title. Andy Short lead all goal scorers in the game with 5 goals and Scott Kidd had a hat trick to lead the Rangers to the championship. The defense was lead by Mark Donnelly and Dale Downing with Keith Caylor stopping 18 shots on goal. Congratulations to the Maple Leafs who put up a battle in the final game and all the teams that participated throughout the season.

League Parity Philosophy
Friday, September 03, 2010 11:33:19 AM
The Castle Sports Club trys hard each season to maintain balance in our leagues. A competitive yet balanced league creates a good fun league for players of all skill levels. I would like to take a moment and clarify the philosophy we follow to maintain balance in our leagues.
The "move up", "break up" or "move out" philosophy is the idea if your team wins multiple championships in a league the team should move up a skill level or individual players on the team should move up to the next available level. If the next available level is not a practical solution we may ask a player to change teams "break up". In rare cases when a team refuses to help us balance the league a team may "move out" completely.
When games are close, tied or go into overtime we are happy and the leagues are balanced. Please help us in supporting our "good for business" philosophy of balanced leagues. Also remember that as hard as we try to maintain balance in our leagues some players try harder to unbalance the leagues. Once a league starts it takes 3-6 months to rebalance that league. This philosophy has served us well to create the best hockey leagues in all of Arizona for over a decade.
