Hello Fellow EMHA Members

Wow, what a start to the 2012-13 hockey season!  Teams have been practicing hard and have started their regular season games in both the Georgian Bay Minor Hockey League and the Georgian Bay Triangle Hockey League.  A special thanks to all the volunteer coaches, trainers and managers for helping with a team this year.  Without your help, the kids could not enjoy this great game we all love.

EMHA is extremely fortunate to have great Team Sponsors in our community that step up year after year to help cover some costs of providing hockey to our kids.  Please be sure to thank your sponsor someday, or better yet, try to support their businesses whenever you can.

A special thanks to our local FOODLAND who have donated $1000 to EMHA on a promotion they won in the summer.  We will let you know what the executive decides to put that money towards.

Our Local League teams from Novice to Midget have received their new jerseys and I think they look quite sharp.  Thanks to Mark McGee for looking after getting those ordered.

Our new and improved website is up and running and it should really improve not only our ice scheduling and organization for rescheduled games, but there is a wealth of info that can be followed on it.  Each team can have their very own avenue for letting the rest of our membership know how they are doing and what they have been accomplishing.

It also has a great application that allows individuals to receive emails or texts when a change or addition to game times or practice times occurs to a team your son/daughter is on.  You can also download your own Coyote schedule to remain synchronized on your smart phone.

A special thanks to Kent Fay and many members of the executive who have made the transition from our old website to the new one go so smoothly.  It took several hours of effort but I think you will all agree it was worth it.

Thanks to Doug and Nancy Sweeney who looked after our old website for the past several seasons.

This years Liasions have been organized and should be meeting with all the teams over the next few weeks.  Please remember if you have an issue to contact them if it can not be resolved or if you have any questions that need answered.  Look for the name and contact info for your Teams Liaison on the website.

EMHA will be hosting our first tournament of the season on November 16, 17 and 18 as our Brian English Memorial tournament for the Bantam and Midget Rep teams will take place.  Come out to watch some good hockey and to cheer on our Coyote teams that weekend.

Finally, congratulations to some of our teams who have had some early tournament success as we had 3 teams make it to the Finals in their first tournaments of the season.

                                    Atoms Reps - Champions in Tillsonburg winning 1-0

                                    Pee Wee Reps - Finalists in Stirling losing 1-0 in OT

                                    Bantam Reps - Champions in Port Dover winning 2-1 in OT

Check the website for all our teams results.

Our IP and Tyke teams have also been practicing hard and the IP teams are gearing up to play some exhibition games later in the year.  The Tykes will start their games in late November, early December.  Best of Luck to our youngest members of EMHA.  Watch for our Tyke Select team later in the season try to hone their skills by playing against some tough Select competition.

Our Elmvale Coyote Bantam Euro Tour 2013-14 team have also been busy fundraising money for their trip to Sweden next Christmas.  Watch for some info at an arena bulletin board in the near future.

Best of Luck to all of our Coyote teams over the next while.  Work hard, play with good sportsmanship and have FUN.  Be proud to represent Elmvale and be proud to be a Coyote.

Please contact me if you have any questions or concerns about EMHA.

See you at the Rink!
