Message from our President
Message to our members
I would like to extend a great Thank You to our parents, volunteers, officials, and most of all, our players of all ages for an outstanding 2013-14 minor hockey season. In my first year as President of the FMMHA, I had a steep learning curve, and an executive board with many empty positions. I had more than one mentor guiding me from behind the scenes and numerous people stepped up to help us when we needed it the most. Thank you to those individuals as well. Overall, we consider it to have been a successful season.
The 2013-14 season also saw our Pee Wee AA’s join the likes of our, Bantam and Midget rep teams hosting home games within their respective leagues. This is something that hasn’t happened in Fort McMurray for many years. The FMMHA viewed this as a critical opportunity for all our rep teams’ development, and in addition cut down on travel and expenses for our families. We have continued to cultivate the relationships in which my predecessors have worked so hard to establish with the AA league executives and it is the FMMHA’s plan to continue down this path for years to come.
THANK YOU to everyone who attended the AGM on May 1. The new executive board was elected in and positions will be posted on the website in the very near future.
We have a full complement on our executive board with some returning and a few new people. I look forward to an exciting season ahead!
As always, I want to remind you that our goal as an association is to provide a fun, challenging, and exciting hockey season from Initiation through to Midget. Please remember that whether you are in the stands cheering, on the bench coaching, or reviewing the game with your player…The children play because they love it and we want them to continue loving it, even as they develop to move on to junior or recreational/old timer leagues.
Thank you all for your support, your volunteer hours, and your love of hockey.
