LOCAL LEAGUE COACHES NEEDED
The Hockey Committee is beginning the process of selecting and assigning Head Coach positions for our Local League teams for the 2018/19 hockey season.
Coaches are needed at all levels from Initiation through Major Midget.
If you have any interest in being part of a team's bench staff (Head Coach, Assistant Coach, Trainer or Manager) please send the Hockey Committee an email by clicking the link below.
Even if you already expressed interest, please remind us with an email.
In December, the Orono Atom 1 team had an opportunity as a team to volunteer with the Kinsmen Club to assemble over 100 Christmas Hampers for families in Durham Region.
The experience gave the players the opportunity to help families in their community and be apart of the true meaning of Christmas. Some of the players and their families were also able to play Santa by delivering some of the baskets. This was a great experience for the kids.
As a thank you, the Kinsmen Club made a $500 donation to the team which the team has graciously donated the funds to the OAAA to help fund things our arena needs.
Thank you to everyone from Atom 1!

In the 2017-18 season, there was a major change in hockey for our Initiation division (5 & 6 year olds) with the introduction of cross-ice hockey by Hockey Canada. With minimal direction from Hockey Canada, the OHF or the OMHA, our 4 Initiation head coaches have done an amazing job facilitating the new program!
The 2018-19 season will see our Tyke division (7 year olds) go to cross-ice hockey as well followed by our Novice division (8 & 9 year olds) for the 2019-20 hockey season.
The Hockey Committee within the OAAA Executive has spent a lot of time researching the best options for cross-ice hockey and at the February board meeting voted in favour of purchasing a new removable rink divider system to facilitate the new program.
The rink divider system is manufactured in Woodstock, Ontario by Riley Manufacturing and will be in place for the start of the 2018-19 hockey season.
Anyone with questions or concerns about the changes being implemented should contact a member of the board to have their concerns addressed.
