OFFICE OPENS FOR 2019/2020 HOCKEY SEASON
Thursday Aug 29, 2019
Welcome back for another season of minor hockey. The Executive and staff have been working hard over the summer in preparation of the 2019/2020 hockey season. Most importantly, Administrator Jodi Blackwood and Technical Director Wally Bray are returning for another season.
The minor hockey office will open Tuesday September 3rd. Jodi will be in the minor hockey office from 9:00 AM to 12:00 noon Monday to Friday to assist members and coaching staff. Jodi can also be reached by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Online registration will be up and running before Tuesday.
Wally will be overseeing all aspects of the all-star and house league hockey programs as well as offering additional programing for those players looking for additional development. These additional programs include pre-season camps, in-season power skating and goalie training. As this season continues until mid-April there will be no opportunity for SJMHA to offer a spring league this season.
Again this season we will be using the online registration process. Families have found this more convenient than standing in those long lines outside Jodi’s office waiting to register. Payment of registration fees online will require a credit card. Those wanting to pay registration fees by debit, cash or cheque still have to visit the minor hockey office.
Last season we discontinued the mandatory $50 raffle ticket with registration, added year end banquets and moved to single season jerseys for the older players. In addition, there have been increases in VISA cost, ice time cost, officials and Hockey NL registration fees since our last registration fee increase in 2014. As a result this season there are fee increases to most of our program offerings.
A big change this season will be new Don Johnson leagues for developmental teams. There will be a parents meeting early in September to explain this new program.
We look forward to another exciting and fun filled season of minor hockey for everyone.
