"Then someone picks through the pile, throwing one stick on one side of the rink, and another on the other side, until all the sticks have been sorted. Wherever your stick ends up is the team you are on."
It is that time of the year again! Evaluations for MAHA's 2014-15 hockey season will take place for Squirt, Pee Wee and Bantam eligible skaters on the weekend of October 25th, 26th.
I am frequently asked who are the evaluators and what is the evaluation criteria. Hopefully the following will help.
The Look-Up Line™ is a warning track extending 40 inches in width around the circumference of the rink. The Look-Up Line™ is colored safety orange and does not interfere with any other lines on the hockey surface. The 40-inch wide warning track allows for no overlapping of any face-off dots, lower circles, or hash marks. Trust me, even if you are still wearing suspenders, a garter belt and using a wooden stick, it will not interfere with your game. The Look-Up Line™ does NOT affect the speed, intensity or heritage of the game of hockey, and does not require new playing rules directed at the player.
The Board is happy to inform you to put away the extra fleece and put that $10 back in your pocket. The heat is on us this year, as MAHA is picking up the tab for space heaters at all home games!
Here's to a great season!
This is an edited version of some great comments by a sports writer I enjoy, John Buccigross. Take it for what it is!
If nothing else, it gets them away from electronics and teaches them a small slice of humanity that they can take forward through life, a life with more heart and less battery power. The rink's cold robs electronics of their battery power and signal reception, anyway.
So, if you are a first-time hockey parent, or dream of one day spending more than $10,000 and sacrificing weekends for a decade of glamorous youth or "minor" hockey, here are some important things you need to know about the youth hockey universe -- and hockey in general -- to help speed up the assimilation process of becoming a "rink rat"...which is a good thing!
Girls U14 AA are State Champions!
Congratulations to the Girls U14AA, who took home the State Championship on Sat in a close 1-0 win against Rutland U14. An inspiring skate in our home rink!
Thank you to the many members of our hockey community who came out to support our girls. A good week for girls hockey in Middlebury!!
