I wanted to apologize for the delay in getting this out to everyone. I wanted to provide some further communications on the Bantam division. First of all congratulations to all of our Bantam players on the effort and skill they have shown so far in the evaluations. I look forward to watching their progress this year.
This year we have had some challenges with the numbers in both Bantam and Midget. As Mike stated in the impromptu parent meeting on Saturday we have been looking at a number of solutions for both divisions. In the midget division the West Edmonton Blues were unable to field a team and as such have sent us their players that along with a couple other moves allowed us to get the numbers in both bantam and midget to a more manageable number and as such, allowed us to field two (2) Midget teams and one (1) Bantam team. We have a few hoops to jump through before the teams will become official but because there are practices planned over the next couple of weeks we want to get moving forward and communicating our "Plan A".
In Bantam we are moving forward with a Bantam A (West Zone) and a Bantam C team this year. The teams have been posted on the website.
We are still in the process of identifying our head coach but have a couple of excellent options. Once we have the coach identified they will be in touch with the team where they will be looking for some parents to volunteer and help make this a successful season for everyone.
Please check the website for the practice schedule. We do have a practice for the Bantam team this Wednesday.
I will be ensuring we have some good coaches out Wednesday to run the practice but if there are any parents interested in helping out it would be greatly appreciated.
Once again thank you in advance and here is to a great season ahead. If you have any questions please don't hesitate to drop me an email or stop me at the field.
Here is the team.
