If you cannot make the first practices due to other sporting conflicts, we ask that you please let us and/or your coach know for planning purposes.
3. Games: Mites, Squirts, and PeeWees will be scheduled and announced by your coaches. Games are on weekends (usually Saturday mornings) beginning around November 7th.
4. Jerseys and Socks: All our game and practice jerseys are Association property. Squirts and Peewees will be receiving new game jerseys this year! Those players will be fitted for their jersey at the first few practices. Mites and Atoms / LTP will be issued a jersey in early November. Practice jerseys will be distributed at the first few practices. Please do not wear your game jerseys to practices. The Association has also purchased a large quantity of the correct hockey socks to wear on the ice (Bruins home colors). You can either purchase these on your own from several local shops, or from us @ $8/pair. These socks are yours to keep and all players are required to have them for games.
5. Website: Our website is a very useful tool in getting quick up to date information. We post all important announcements on our website. It also provides information on our sponsors, directions to all the rinks, game stats, team rosters, updated team calendars, team photos, and several useful links and much, much more! Our website is:www.maranacookyouthhockey.com.
6. Email: Our preferred method of communication is e-mail. You can manage, add and subtract your own hockey e-mail via our website.
7. Inclement Weather Policy: Hockey is rarely cancelled due to inclement weather, however should it become necessary to cancel an event, we will communicate such via e-mail and our website. We cancel when then Kent’s Hill rink closes. Away games are at the discretion of the home team. Please take a common sense approach to inclement weather travel – if you don’t feel comfortable, please don’t travel and let you coach know.
8. Fundraising: Our Association is excited to be offering some great community focused fundraising opportunities this season! Information on our fundraising activities are coordinated via the Fundraising/Events Committee Chair Carrie Knight. Everyone is encourage to participate in as many events as possible.
