The Aylmer Spitfires Hockey Club urgently needs your help
The Aylmer Spitfires Jr C hockey club is in desperate need of volunteers to help their organization continue to operate next season. 

Greg Thompson, the acting President of the Spitfires joined our monthly meeting this past week. He noted that the local hockey club is in desperate need for new volunteers to help run the daily operations of the club. He informed us that the club is prepared to run next season, having a GM and Coach, willing to spearhead the club. 

However, the club needs volunteers to help run the blue line room, sell 50/50 tickets, help fundraise, attend meetings to help make critical decisions, build community involvement and recognition, and overall to generate enthusiasm to make the team successful.

The Spitfires are an important piece of the minor hockey community in Aylmer. Many of our our local kids may have an opportunity to play Jr C in their home town. This possibility can be a long term goal for many of our young players. Though there has been less interaction between the AMHA and the Spitfires in recent years, the two organizations can reciprocally help each other succeed. 

Should the Aylmer Spitfires fold this year, it would likely be quite difficult for Aylmer to ever see another team in town again. Thus, this is an appeal for urgent help. If you would like to at some point see you child in an Aylmer Spitfires uniform, this is your opportunity to ensure they at least have an opportunity.

Should you have any questions regarding the future of the Aylmer Spitfires Jr. C hockey club, the executive is holding meeting tomorrow night (March 2, 2022) in the Blue line room at the EECC, 7:15 pm sharp. You can also contact Greg Thompson at [email protected]

You can have a part in saving the Aylmer Spitfires organization.

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.
