1st Vice Report
Bantam Rep team is currently using the jerseys that were purchased for Bantam B’s. Bantam B’s to use old Rep jerseys for this year. Item to be reviewed for next season.
Request to have Bantam Rep team. This means that this team would have same status as current rep teams - allocated amount of tournies, 2 ice times and SVHL game times as needed, ability to fund raise. Committee wants to review exact status that is being requested by Mario/Jennifer - Jim Kellar to find out.
Mario wants to take girls to Provincials/zones, etc.
If they become reps, then they are under Terri, if they have B status, they are under Darren.
10 girls are from Terrace, remainder from Kitimat.
Concerns raised were as follows:
Co-ed Rep teams draw from all kids in age group; girls only draw from 35-40 players so base $ generated is not as large to draw from to support team.
Need to determine exact amount of funds coming in from girl’s hockey. If all players are required to be registered in girl’s hockey to qualify for team, then all girls need to pay full rate of $415 to be on team and play girls hockey. If team is formed from girl’s hockey AND co-ed, then funding base is less and those girls that are registered only in co-ed hockey that make the Bantam girls team need to pay $135 extra for extra ice time (if that is the case).
$135 extra paid to association by girls from out of town as well as TMHA girls so extra hour of ice was granted.
As this team is formed of more than one community, currently TMHA is the sole association footing the bill.
Status as B team, if done like other co-eds, will give 3 ice hours per week as part of regular paid registration plus one additional hour for “B” time.
TMHA has agreed to one paid tourney but has determined a $1000 cap..
Mario/Jen have a sponsor - Kasims from Stewart.
Proposal must be written up with player contract, evaluation process, fundraising, etc.
Lynne to develop letter to Mario/Jennifer outlining concerns and requirements for next year after getting information from Jim Kellar.
Devon Ames and Spencer Kropup to be goalie instructors for TMHA. Issues have been raised regarding other parent helpers so Sheri will send email to them to thank them for their help but let them know we have the training set up now. Devon and Spencer must have Respect for Sports and CRC’s.
Ice time is at Saturdays.
Darren to also see if Ken Geisbrecht wishes to get involved; the better the quality of instruction, the more kids will come out.
Darren to alert all divisions of new instructors.
New rules around check run though John’s office partly due to John’s having sold the business - we are grateful for all he/they have done for us - and partly due to altercation with division head over check not being ready. All checks to be issued through Vice’s now with regular days set for check runs.
- Head Coach
All members of executive are urged to look into potential candidates to applicants for these positions.
Treasurer position is under discussion as Darren will approach Deb Jephson to see if interest is there in having her as a paid bookkeeper with final reports to go through registered accountant (perhaps Reinbolt). TMHA is concerned over funds at this point so trying to make this work. Discussion also around having Sheri assist (CGA credentials).
Lynne to look into all submitted names and refer to committee.
Lynne to forward JD’s (job descriptions) to committee to review.
