President's Message (Essa Minor Hockey)

PrintPresident's Message

Welcome to the 2018-2019 season. We are officially rolling. With both Atom Rep & Atom AE team bringing home the OMHA championships in March we have now managed five years in a row and the future is looking bright. We will be fielding representative teams in the Novice, Atom, Peewee and Bantam divisions and we will be pushing a total of fifteen teams.  We have local league teams in Novice, Atom, Peewee & Bantam.

The start of a new season brings with it several rule changes from the OMHA. Timbits will continue to be cross-ice with games starting in the new year and the Tykes are beginning their ½ ice games in December. The Junior Eagles program is running for the second year that will teach the 3 and 4 year old kids to skate without the pressure of games. It will give the new skater’s time to hone their skills and learn to fly on their own. The biggest advantage is that they will not be required to attend the early morning practices but rather the program will consist of sessions on Tuesday Evening prior to the start of the power skating program.


I am pleased to announce that the Essa development or “power skating” program will once again be offered for those kids looking to refine their puck handling and skating. The benefits of the program can be easily seen as the kids in the Novice, Atom and Peewee divisions are being very competitive in their age group.

In closing, I would like to thank all of our members for the countless hours and sacrifices that they make in order for our association to be successful. It is this hard work and dedication that will benefit the growth of the EMHA. I would encourage anyone wishing to volunteer to do so, as the continued success of our organization depends largely on volunteers and the participation of our members. We can all play a part in making hockey a positive experience for our players.


Regards,
