Message from President (St. Marys Minor Hockey)

PrintMessage from President

Welcome to the 2017-18 season. It is with great honour to be elected as president for this the 60th Anniversary season of SMMHA. There has been a lot of great volunteers over the past 60 years in all aspects of our organization. My goal is to continue the great tradition that SMMHA has become. 

I have been involved with minor hockey for many many years. First as a player then in multiple different roles in many coaching situations.

I have been a director with SMMHA for a few years now and also act as the ice scheduler for our organization. It takes many many hands to make SMMHA the very respected and successful organization that it is today. I hope that we can continue to lead the way to our 70th anniversary. 

For this upcoming season we will have teams in the following categories:

5 -O.W.H.A (girls) teams 

 10 -Shamrock league teams (rep- BB and AE3)

7 -Lambton Middlesex teams (Local League) 

New this year - to keep up with the Hockey Canada guide lines, the mite/tyke program is being renamed. It is the same great cross ice program we have been running for a few years but now with a new name. We will have 

1 Preschool 3 and 4 year olds 

1 Junior IP (Initiation Program) 5 year olds 

1 Senior IP (Initiation Program) 6 year olds 

These teams are made up of almost 400 registrants.

Our organization website offers a one stop shop for information to keep you up to date. Everything from practice times to game times, team events,news feeds, and contacts. One exciting news feed you can find on there is the introduction of a gate pass for the 2017/18 season. 

In closing I would like thank all the people that make this organization work. From parents to volunteers, members of the coaching staffs and all who play a role behind the scenes in this organization that make it possible for the kids to be on the ice. 

Remember; our coaches are volunteers, our Referees are human and most of all it is and always should be about the kids. 

Have a great season 

Chris Boyd 

President S.M.M.H.A.
