  REMHA House  League - Year End Report
May 27th, 2015

As we begin to enjoy the outdoors, we have time to pause and reflect on the past hockey season.

The hockey development camp “Rust Busters” in the beginning of the year is one of the most important development camps that REMHA undertakes each year. The feedback from parents regarding the program and its instructors was exceptionally positive. Some parents I’ve spoken to believe it’s one of the best in the city. All the credit goes to the special on ice instructors that provide their expertise and patience to teach players with a wide range of skill level.

For the first time this year, the 6 and Under age group played half ice games. There were some skeptics in the beginning, but as the season went along the positive response was overwhelming. The feedback from parents and coaches alike was so strong that we extended half ice games to the second half of the season. It was obvious to see that the development of each player was far greater playing half ice rather than full ice. I truly, appreciated the understanding and patience of each team which made the logistics of moving and sharing dressing rooms and benches more manageable. A full season of half ice games will continue for next year.

The 7 & 8 age group teams played very competitive games. It showed the balance throughout the league. There has been suggestions from coaches on how to improve the games to make them even better. I will look into implementing these changes if possible.

There was also a lot of firsts off ice. The Respect in Sports for parents was introduced, evaluation for coaches, and the central registration. All these were well received, but require minor tweaking to alleviate some minor issues. With the experienced gained from last year, I’m sure many of these minor issues will be resolved.

As we continue to enjoy the warmth of the outdoors, I would like to thank all the coaches, managers, volunteers and especially the parents for their time and effort in allowing their children to enjoy the game of hockey.

As a first year member of the executive, I would also like to thank the executive of REMHA for providing me of just a small glimpse of the amount of commitment it takes to run the association.

Have a great summer!

Congratulations to the Peewee A2 Eagles who came back from being two games behind in a best of five series and winning the City Championship! Hard fought games and strong determination paid off.

Our most heartfelt thanks and appreciation goes out to the many coaches and managers, bench staff, volunteers, and parents who put in endless hours at the rink this season to help our Northeast teams enjoy a successful and FUN season all around.

Have a great “off-season” and I look forward to seeing everyone at the rink in the fall.
