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 for the following divisions:
Initiation (kids born in 2012/2013)
Atom (kids born in 2008/2009)
Major Midget (kids born in 2001/2002)
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.
The OAAA is looking for a few new team sponsors for our 2018/19 hockey season.
A sponsor gets their name on the back of a team’s jerseys, a thank you plaque with a team photo, advertising on oaaa.ca and at the arena and social media via @OronoAAA on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
If you or your company are interested in sponsoring a team please email email@example.com for more information.
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.
