Belmont and Aylmer Minor hockey families will have two final opportunities to weigh in on the proposed amalgamation before being asked to vote on the proposal on Nov. 17 and 18, 2023.




In order for amalgamation to proceed, members in both centers must vote and the 2/3 majority must support moving Rep hockey to the East Elgin Minor Hockey Association.

Local League programs in both centers will not be impacted by amalgamation.

Town Hall Meetings.

Two town halls have been scheduled. To cast an informed vote, we strongly encourage members to attend one, or both, of these meetings to hear important information and updates.

Thursday Nov. 2nd at 7:30 pm - Belmont Arena, Belmont
Wednesday Nov. 8th at 7:00 pm - Imperial Hall, Aylmer

We ask all members to bring their questions or submit them to be addressed at the meetings.

Email them in advance to [email protected] by Mon Oct. 30 to have them addressed during the town halls.

November Amalgamation Vote

BMHA and AMHA members will vote separately in their centers on either Nov. 17 or 18.

Each association member will receive one vote and must vote at the arena aligned to the association your player is registered with.

BMHA: Fri Nov. 17th - 5:00 – 9:00 pm - Belmont Arena

AMHA: Sat Nov. 18th - 10:00am – 2:00pm - Blueline Room, East Elgin Community Complex

All members will receive an email a week before the vote with a voting location reminder and more information regarding voting rules, who can vote and how the results are determined.  

We thank you for your continued support as we work together to help all Belmont and Aylmer minor hockey players play the game in a way that is fun, safe and meets their hockey development goals. 

Sincerely,

Shawn Pede

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.
