My name is Jeff Shewchuk and I will be the head coach of Team 2 (name to be changed) this season. We have our first practice this season at 6:45am on Saturday October 7th at Grant Furh Arena. This will be a power skating development skate with Brittany Miller.
For those that are new to hockey this year, bear with me because things take off very quickly. If at any time you have questions just ask.
I will be conducting a parents meeting after Saturdays practice. If you could please stick around in the dressing room, I will try and make it quick. Keep in mind some of the things we will need to discuss such as filling our volunteer positions. We need everyoneâ€™s help to make this a fun successful year.
Please keep these positions in mind,
Manager- Help ensure the team operates smoothly. For initiation responsibilities include team communication/scheduling of exhibition games/ trading ice slots. Plus a bunch more!! If you have never managed before and are thinking of volunteering but would like more details, a SGMHA Manager Manual specifically for initiation is available. Let me know if you would like a copy and I can send it to you.
Treasurer- Open bank account for our team, collect money, cut cheques for team activities and balance the books. Iâ€™ve been told there is a spread sheet to help you with this. (1 Volunteer)
Social coordinator-Plan social activates for our team (Christmas party, Year-end Party, ect) (1-2 Volunteers)
Fundraising coordinator-Plan and organize fundraisings events for the team. (1-2 Volunteers)
Home Tournament Reps-Represent our team at meetings to plan our home initiation tournament. Sara Lucas has offered to help with this. We are still looking for one more volunteer.
Coaching staff- We will need on ice help from some assistant coaches. If you have any interest in helping out please contact me. I would like to know if you can commit full time/part time.
If your son or daughter is as excited as mine is, I know we will have a fantastic fun year.
I look forward to meeting you all,
