It is hard to believe our regular season is winding down and the OMHA playdowns are right around the corner for the LMH Teams.
It’s not about wins and losses as our LMH Mission statement is to create a hockey program for youth that is fun, where participants can develop and learn the technique and skills of the game, life skills and good sportsmanship both on and off the ice. However, in saying that, our overall Organization record continues to show how the Junior Development program is making an impact across all levels. This program has adjusted and improved over the past decade to meet the mission statement goal, ensuring we are not only registering more players than ever before, but keeping those same players playing this great game. Thanks to all the Volunteers who have had a hand in this ever changing program during this time period.
As the Christmas Season approaches, now is a great time to THANK those who are making an impact with your Team. We may believe others must have more time to volunteer than we do—this is just not the case. Many of these Volunteers are just as busy and are making the choice to spend those rare few available moments helping your child develop hockey and social skills. Many of those available moments are at the expense of spending time with their own family. Without them Organizations like LMH would not survive. Thanks to all you Volunteers for all you have done and continue to do, to grow the Youth within our Community. It is much appreciated.
Have a safe and Merry Christmas and good luck to those who are spending part of their Christmas Break in a tourney.
Yours in Hockey,
President Listowel Minor Hockey
