A notice went out today 8/12 to the main GOHA group in world with a Rookie Interest Card. All rookies must complete the Rookie Interest Card and return it to Katia Ixtab by 8/20/2011. Its the first step towards draft eligiblity!

WHAT MAKES A ROOKIE ELIGIBLE FOR DRAFT?
*Player is in good standing with GOHA
*Player is not an "alt" of a GOHA veteran
*Player's AV is in BOTH the GOHA Main Group and corrently registered on the GOHA Website (Account has AV First Name / AV Last Name - we need to be able to find you in Second Life)
*Player must have participated in at least 6 qualifying games prior to the S13 Draft and be cleared for the draft list by the Farm Coaching Staff. Out of the 6 qualifiers, 4 MUST be participation in an official Farm Training Scrimmages (Minimum Qualifiers: 4 Farm Training Scrimmages + 2 other games (summer season or scrimmages)
*Player feels ready to go into the Draft. Rookies can opt to not go into the draft pool and be placed on a regulation team during S13 as they become more confident on the ice.
