Congratulations to the Orono Initiation Team 2 who won their tournament on March 18 in Colborne.
The team won all 3 games during the day with scores of 8-1, 4-3 (that included a 6 round shootout) and 6-1 in the final.
The kids all played very hard throughout the day and the coaches and parents are very proud of them.
Team members are: Nathan B, Jasper, Kain, Devon, Corbyn, Liam, Marek, Simon, Noah K, Ryan, Olivia and Nathan P. Coaches Jeff and Jamie.
These kids are our youngest hockey players in the OAAA. The Mites program is for kids 3 & 4 years old and also for kids 5 years old who have never skated before. As you can tell from the pictures, the kids love it! The program is run by Orono's own Rhonda Mercer and her team of amazing volunteers. If you're interested in the 2017-18 Mites program reach out to the OAAA soon as spaces are limited!
We are now well into the playoffs! As the end of the season approaches, the OAAA Executive are now seeking your input and thoughts into how the 2016/17 season went.
Coach Evaluation forms are now available at the arena to be filled out and they are also available by the link below to be printed off and returned to the arena.
Coach evaluations are important as they help the OAAA Hockey Committee with coaching assignments for next year. The evaluations also help our coaches know what you think they did well this year and what you think they could improve on.
Please take the time to evaluate your team's coaches.
The 2016-17 Playoff schedule has been added to the website calendar and the Sports Engine app.
To access the calendar, simply click on Calendar and select the tags for the Orono teams you wish to see the schedule for.
The Sports Engine app is the easiest way to keep track of ice time for your teams and can be downloaded free of charge from the App Store.
The OAAA is looking to have REP hockey teams in Novice, Atom, Peewee, Bantam, Midget and Juvenile for the 2017-18 hockey season.

It was great to see Orono hometown hockey hero Bryan Bickell at the Atom LL Bickell Cup tournament at the arena!
