Dear St Vital Hockey Parents,
Over the past several years the St Vital Minor Hockey Association (SVMHA) has received an abundance of feedback from parents and coaches regarding the player evaluation and team formation processes. In response to this feedback, the SVMHA formed a steering committee in the fall of 2017 to research and analyse possible areas for improvement.
After consultation with key stakeholders, one viable option to improve the quality of evaluation results is to provide spring evaluations in addition to the fall evaluations.
Beginning this weekend on March 17 and concluding on Thursday March 22 we will be running a pilot where the 2008 & 2009 age groups for male hockey programs will be scheduled for evaluations. Evaluations will consists of 2 skill sessions per child, and reduce the number of evaluations required in the fall. If a player is unable to attend any of these spring evaluations, the data obtained during the 2017 fall evaluations will carry over and be used in conjunction with next falls evaluations to determine player rankings for the 2018-19 season. Any teams unable to attend due to playoffs will have their full evaluations completed in the fall.
Please be assured that the time commitment of families is always taken into consideration by the SVMHA board when we work to implement any changes to our procedures and policies. This is why all spring evaluations have been scheduled to be complete before the start of spring
Should you have any questions or concerns please contact your appropriate convenor:
2008 - Ryan Haney - firstname.lastname@example.org
2009 - Brad Peters - email@example.com
Thank you for your continued support and best of luck to all teams in the playoffs.

Attention St. Vital Hockey Parents: Just a friendly reminder to avoid having children under the age of 12 unsupervised in our arenas. This opens up liability risks for our association, and the arenas themselves. Incidences of unsupervised children that arena staff see behaving in a manner that isn't acceptable to them can and will be handled with in the following manner:
1. Warning to the child directly
2. Warning to the parent of that child
3. Possibility of temporary banning from the premises
Unsupervised children in no access areas, including vacant dressing rooms will not be tolerated.
Questions, feel free to contact the SVMHA directly. Thanks!
