Hello Fellow EMHA Members

Wow, it's hard to believe the regular season has gone by so fast!  Our rep teams completed their regular season play in early January and our Local leagues teams just finished up their regular season this past weekend.  With that, playoffs have started and the “new season” has begun.  A special thanks to Julie Columbus and Darrin Robertson for all their hard work in setting up our playoff contracts.  It is a daunting task at times.

Congratulations to the Atom, Pee Wee and Midget Rep teams and to the Pee Wee and Bantam AE teams who have already advanced to the second round.  As of today our Bantam Rep and Midget AE teams are leading their respective series and the Juveniles await their first round of playoffs.  Good luck to all the rep teams as they move forward in their quest for an OMHA championship.  Georgian Bay Minor Hockey League playoffs will be under way for all these teams very soon as well.

The Georgian Triangle Local League Playoffs will be starting up in the next week or so and we wish all those teams good luck in their drive for a league championship.

Congratulations to the Novice, Bantam and Juvenile Rep teams for earning the right to represent EMHA at the International Silver Stick during the month of January, quite an honour and experience for those Coyote players. 

Also congratulations to the Midget LL team who recently won a tournament they entered.  Not only did they win the tournament but they were also commended for their sportsmanship and discipline by being the least penalized team in the tournament.  Way to go!!

Special mention to the Atom Rep team who lead the GB league with a near perfect record of 18-0-2, quite an accomplish especially against some of the bigger centres.  This same team also entered an "A" tournament this month and lost only the championship game to be the tournament runner ups.  Great job Atom Rep team.

Our young IP players have recently played their first game against other centres.  They will play a couple of more games before the season ends, so if you get a chance to catch these 4 and 5 year olds play on a Saturday it sure is amazing how quickly they have all improved this season.

All Star dates and location have been announced; Local League All Star game will take place April 6 in Shelburne and the Rep All Star games will occur in Midland on April 7.  Watch for more details as those dates come closer and Good Luck to all our Coyote representatives.

Parents please watch for your next Liaison meeting where you will receive the coach evaluation form that you can fill out and hand in right away to your liaison.  This is a good tool to help us improve our coaches as well as being used as a tool to help in the selection of coaches in upcoming years.  Coaches, please also remember to fill in your Award Winner Sheets later in February.

Watch for game socks and our newly ordered Elmvale Coyote Pins to go on sale in the Booth if you are after any of these items.  As well, we are in need of some volunteers to help run the booth over the March Break, so if you could put in a few additional hours or if you are still looking to fulfill your time, please contact Tina Robertson.  If we can’t find volunteers to run the booth that week, we may have to close it which would be a shame as it appears the booth is doing better this year.

Elmvale has a long tradition of supporting their hockey teams, especially come playoff time.  It was amazing to see how the Elmvale Fans outnumbered the home fans by at least 3 to 1 in a recent playoff game in Wasaga.  So if you get a chance to support another Coyote team during the playoffs, whether at home or on the road, please do so. 

Best of Luck to all teams in the playoffs over the coming months.  Play hard, display sportsmanship and have fun.  Make our Coyote nation proud.

See you at the rink!

Kevin Fay

EMHA President
