Pre-Season Prep Groups and U5 and U7 Teams Announced
The 2021-2022 hockey season is right around the corner. Check the website calendar for the countdown.

Tryouts for AAA, AA, A have been delayed this year, and as a result, our tryouts are later in September than families are normally accustomed to. As such, you will see "Pre-season prep" skates on the schedule this season. These are meant to give your child a chance to get on the ice prior to Rep tryouts. In some divisions, you will also see that there are groups in the label i.e. Group 1, Group 2. This is because there are limits to how many participants can be on the ice. If you do not see a group, all participants in that division may attend i.e. U18.

We have divided U9, U11, U13 and U15 into groups. Please ensure you check to see what group your child is in. Your child will only be permitted to attend the times that have been allocated to their group.

These sessions will be run by both the Rep and LL coaches selected in each division. Pre-season prep skates will continue until Rep tryouts are scheduled. At that time, those that would like to play LL will transition to the LL skates, while those trying out for Rep will proceed through the tryout schedule.

The U5 and U7 teams are now available as well. The U5 Group will be coordinated by Matt Wight and Derek Leclair. The U7 group will be coordinated by Matt Wight. Matt and Derek have worked hard in prep for their season to have coaches and trainers in place to start the year. We thank you all in advance for taking on leadership roles.

Please remember, that if your child is planning on trying out in another center, chooses to participate in our pre-season skates, and then makes that team, they will still be subject to the AMHA refund policy noted in our constitution.

We look forward to seeing you all soon.
Sponsors
Tim Hortons
The Timbits Minor Sports Program is a community-oriented sponsorship program for children four to eight years old who participate in local house league sports teams. The program's philosophy is not based on winning or losing - but on learning a new sport, making new friends, and just taking time out to be a kid. Tim Hortons currently sponsors over 200,000 children who play on hockey, soccer, lacrosse, t-ball, baseball and ringette teams across Canada and in the United States. Each sponsored team is supplied with Timbits Minor Sports jerseys or T-shirts. Timbits hockey teams are often given the opportunity to play on-ice scrimmages during intermissions at Junior, American Hockey League (AHL) and National Hockey League (NHL) games.
