Pictou Minor Hockey 2014-15 Updates

Final Registration for the 2014-15 Season
: If you haven't yet done so, please have your child registered and payments arranged for the upcoming season by Wednesday, October 8th. You can contact me to let me know you would like to register, You can pay in two installments, preferable two cheques, half the amount post dated Oct. 17th, the remainder dated for Nov. 17th. Please drop off your cheques to Advocate Printing on Brown's Point Road by Wednesday to ensure your player is registered for the season. Let me know if you have any questions. I can email registration forms to parents who need them.

Midget Player Update: I apologize for the confusion surrounding our Midget division this year, but I think we have all the details sorted and a clear plan for moving forward. All players planning to play Midget hockey in Pictou can pay their registration fees directly to Pictou Minor Hockey. The total cost for the year, non-family rate, is $650.00 (this includes $250 worth of fundraising tickets which you sell and keep the money). You can drop off payment to me (Shane) at my office at Advocate Printing on Brown's Point Road. Cheques are preferred, but if you want to pay cash, please contact me to make sure I am in the office when you arrive. Please make arrangements to drop off payment by Wednesday, Oct 8th. Cheques can be post-dated for October 17th and November 17th. Tryout dates should be available soon, I am just finalizing ice times with the rink. The plan is to ice two teams, a Midget A and Midget C. Midget A will technically be part of Pictou County Minor Hockey, but the players should not see any difference this season vs. last.

Attention Novice Parents (players aged 7 & 8): The Novice on ice assessments will take place this weekend at the Wellness Centre in New Glasgow. These assessments are necessary to place our Novice players on the team best suited to their abilities. Our Pictou time is Saturday, October 4th at 10:00 AM. Goalies are assessed separately, their time is Saturday, October 4th at 11:00 AM. Pictou Goalies only need to attend the one session at 11:00 AM. This assessment session is run by an independent group of PCMHA coaches. They will ask the kids to run through a series of on ice drills aimed at assessing their skill levels. The information they gather will be used by them, to pick the two county Novice Advanced teams and by our Pictou coaches, to place the players not selected for county on a Novice intermediate, or development team in Pictou.


Pictou Minor Hockey will have four sessions available for the 2014-15 season registration:

 
  • Saturday September 6th, 9 am - 12 noon at the NSCC in Stellarton
  • Tuesday September 9th, 6:30 pm - 9 pm at the NSCC in Stellarton
  • Saturday September 13th, 10 am - 12 noon at the Pictou Fire Hall
  • Tuesday September 16th, 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm at the Pictou Fire Hall

The 2013-14 season proved to be a challenging one for Pictou Minor Hockey Association. As had been the case for a few years, the season began with a financial deficit. The association owed the rink commission several thousand dollars in outstanding rink rentals from the previous year. Thanks to the hard work of a number of fundraising organizers and to you, the parents/guardians of our players, we were able to end the year in the black (but just barely).
 
Our goal for 2014-15 is to break even again. In order to do this a substantial fundraising effort needs to be put forth by everyone. This is our only way to ensure our association continues to thrive and we continue to offer an excellent minor hockey program to our community. Pictou is fortunate to have this program, not all of the other towns are faring as well. We iced teams in all divsions last year, I believe we were the only town to do so.
 
Below are the rates for the upcoming season and the dates you can register.
 
Please Note: IF YOUR SON OR DAUGHTER IS TRYING OUT FOR A COUNTY TEAM (CRUSHERS OR SELECTS) PLEASE DO NOT REGISTER WITH PICTOU MINOR HOCKEY. IF THEY DO NOT MAKE THE COUNTY TEAM, OR CHOOSE NOT TO PLAY, YOU CAN REGISTER THEM AT LATER DATE WITH PICTOU. THERE WILL BE NO PENALTY.
