Teams and coaches are starting to settle in. Coaches are seeing what and where they need to improve on. Players are meeting new friends and learning our game (Ball Hockey).
Parents are meeting new fiends.
Putting 16 teams together without knowing all the players strengths and trying to have them equal it is like a jigsaw puzzle. The outside square edge pieces are easy but building the interior is a challenge.
We will be making trades this weekend to try to balance the teams in ALL age divisions. PLEASE do NOT get upset if your traded, it is not a personal thing, its for the better of the league.
Playing with different players than the ones that they played with all last winter and possibly again next winter can make children stagnant. Meeting and playing with new friends helps with social skills for everything.
Once again my thanks goes out to everyone, your all a great group of people, special thanks to ALL the coaches,

We need at least 11 players (1 goalie & 10 runners)
Amy Woodbeck will be spearheading the banquet committee so if anyone would like to help please contact her.
We have spare goalie equipment if a goalie forgets a piece. I also have a spare right and left hand stick if anyone forgets or breaks one. I will be picking up a few more in different lengths when i find some used ones free. lol
I am looking for a ref that can ref the womens league as well as the minors.
Team Pictures were started last week. I will take the Atom teams on April 30th. If any players or coaches were missing I will take singles and figure out how to fit them into the pictures.
I will be giving these to our team sponsors and coaches to email to their teams.
They will also replace last year teams on our "GALLERY" page on the website. I will let you know when that is done.
