Important Information:

We are going to give the coaches two opportunities to turn everything in this year.


Option one is to bring all of your equipment to Hockey Saturday, March 22nd.  If you are not playing in games that day, it would be great if you could collect your jerseys after your last game, wash them (preferred but not required), and put them in the bins they were in when you received them and bring them to the HOCO on Hockey Saturday.  Teams that do play in Hockey Saturday: collect the jerseys and equipment after the game.  If you would like to turn them in immediately, that would be okay, unless you are willing to take them home and wash them??!! 


The second opportunity will be Thursday March 27th from 6-8 at the HOCO.


Please bring all of the jerseys- both game jerseys and practice jerseys if you were given any, all goalie equipment you had checked out, and your Credential book.


This can be a very challenging project for Steve, our equipment manager, so please do everything you can to get your stuff to him at one of these times, otherwise it can turn into an exercise in chasing ghosts all summer.


Thanks for your help and timeliness in getting this done.

Advise your players/coaches/parents to leave them in their cars or give them to someone else. MAKE SURE THEY DO NOT BRING THEM IN THE LOCKER ROOM!
