Eventually you'll get a game where he calls the captain an hour or two before game time saying "I've got to work late tonight, can't make it," and then what do you do? Forfeit the game and tell both teams they can't play because the only available goalies playing earlier games at the rink that evening are 35 and under?
Yeah it's kind of the same thing with a beginners league. There's only so many legit beginners to go around, and if you're team ends up short and needs some subs chances are the new guys played hockey before and at this level anyone who has experience could be a 'ringer'.
Anyways, the 3 leagues I've played in they just re-adjust the divisions a couple of times a season, moving teams up or down divisions depending on how they're performing. So bring some ringers onto the team and you're going to risk finding yourself in a higher division that the rest of the team can't keep up with.
