I wanted to apologize for the delay in getting this out to everyone. I wanted to provide some further communications on the Midget division. First of all congratulations to all of our Midget 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 Midget we are moving forward with a Midget A (West Zone) and 2 Midget B teams this year.
We are still in the process of identifying our head coaches but have a couple of excellent options. Once we have the coaches identified they will be in touch with their 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 parity game for the Midget teams this Wednesday. We ask that all players please make every effort to attend to ensure we have as competitive of a game as possible.
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.
