All Coyote Members

Hard to believe our long season has come to an end.  As we leave all the early morning practices, travel to visiting centres and team functions behind we can reflect back on the friendships we made, skills we improved on and fun we had partaking in this great Canadian Sport of Hockey.  As has become expected, our Coyote teams played hard, displayed sportsmanship and represented Elmvale with pride and class.  OMHA President Rob Ring even mentioned EMHA in his message in the latest Hometown Hockey Magazine.  Please check that out as it talks about how great Coyote hockey players and parents can be.

The Elmvale Coyotes were well represented in both our Rep and LL League Playoffs.  Six of our eight Rep/AE teams competed for Championship or Consolation Championship trophies.  Our Novice Rep, Atom Rep, Pee Wee AE and Bantam Rep teams each won the Consolation Championships in their respective Divisions.  The Pee Wee Rep team were runner ups in their Consolation Championship while the Bantam AE team lost out in their Georgian Bay Championship Series.  Our Novice LL team were runner ups in their Championship Finals while our Atom LL #2 team captured the Championship in the Georgian Triangle League Finals.  Congratulations to all these teams on their playoff success.

Coyote fans can be rest assured that the future is bright for many years to come as our IP and Tyke teams all had successful seasons.  This was front and centre at a Year end tournament in Wasaga Beach as Tyke 3 faced off against Tyke 5 in a game for the ages.  Tyke 5 took a late lead only to see Tyke 3 tie the game with 3 seconds left.  Tyke 3 went on to win in OT in exciting fashion.  Congratulations to both of these young Coyote teams.

Our yearly Awards Banquet will take place on April 22 starting at 5:30 pm with our IP, Tyke and Novice Teams.  Food will be provided for all the teams and Awards will be handed out.  EMHA is proud to announce that Former Elmvale Coyote, Owen Sound Attack and Colorado Avalanche Draftee Chris Bigras will be at the banquet to talk to the kids and present some awards.

Our membership AGM will take place on May 10 at 10 a.m. upstairs of arena.  Please note that this date has been changed from the original May 3 date.  This is a great opportunity for all members to be heard.  It gives you a chance to discuss or ask questions about what you may like or dislike.  We have several director positions that are open so if you would like to have more of a say please consider joining the EMHA executive.

As you may know, our special meeting that took place about the future of our Booth come out with a resounding yes to continue on with EMHA operating the booth for years to come.  EMHA has operated the booth for many years and are pleased to continue with this service for our membership and those other centres that play here throughout the season.  More and more people are seeing the importance and positive aspects of not only working in the booth but of the booth being open for our members and visiting hockey players and spectators to add to the whole hockey experience.

Our league All Star games will take place in Collingwood on Saturday April 11 and Sunday April 12.  Good luck to all our Coyote players who are representing our teams.

In closing I want to thank all of the players, parents, spectators, referees, time keepers, gate keepers, ice schedulers, executive members and coaching staffs who work tirelessly throughout the season to bring Coyote hockey to fruition.  Without all of you, none of this could ever happen.  It takes many hands to put together all the games, practices and tournaments for our kids to play in, for all this I sincerely thank everyone for volunteering their time.

Hope to see you all at the Awards Banquet and AGM.  Have a great off season and enjoy your summer.  See you in the fall for another exciting hockey season.

Kevin Fay

EMHA President
