In our review of the 2021/22 season at the meeting there are some elements that require further communication and attention.
First, it is important to recognize the volunteers and supporting cast who helped make this season a success.
A huge thank you to our coaches, trainers, managers and all team volunteers that gave their time all season to make sure that every age group and team had the opportunity to hit the ice. The dedication of this group provides a solid foundation to our programming and we truly appreciate all of the time they give to hockey.
Our officials and timekeepers are deserving of our gratitude as they are a fundamental element to our programs.
The arena staff were excellent to work with in a challenging season and we are grateful for their support.
Thank you to all of our sponsors for their support. It is great that our community of businesses and individuals that provide this support are always keen to be involved and provide a level of financial support that we truly appreciate.
Our Executive Committee volunteers did an excellent job all season of managing whatever changes and challenges that came about. Without this group we do not succeed and they are the foundation of every season that begins and ends with their commitment to the hockey community. We are so thankful to this group.
Moving forward into our next season it is imperative that some new faces step forward in order for hockey programming to be available for our kids. We have multiple roles that require filling so please do all you can to help us have a complete roster of volunteers. All of the roles require time but not necessarily experience. All roles can be learned and support is available at all times.
The following positions are currently vacant and without people stepping forward it will be a great challenge to get our programs ready and running for 2022/23:
- Ice Scheduler
- Development Coordinator
- OMHA Contact/VP
- Tournament Convenor
- Rep Director
- Officials Convenor
If you think any of these roles may be a good fit for you, if you know someone who might be a good candidate or if you have any questions please contact Greg Macmillan at [email protected]
The reach for volunteers can certainly extend beyond our parent group if you or anyone you know is a potential candidate.
