Hello Future Raider families,
February 4th is Future Raider night. Your Future Raider will have free admission to the February 4th Boys Varsity Hockey game at 6pm at Sukee if they wear their hockey jersey.
Also, I wanted to let everyone know about the Annual Winslow Hockey Benefit Auction that is happening this Saturday, January 24th at the Winslow VFW. The time is 6- midnight and admission is free!!! There is a Silent auction, Live auction, cash bar, and dancing to follow. There are alot of great items to bid on and all proceeds go to the Friends of Winslow Hockey which is the boosters for the High School boys hockey team.
This fund raiser directly impacts our junior high players especially out 8th graders since they will be playing in high school next year. With fund raising the boosters have been able to provide each player with an embroidered team jacket(nice and warm by the way!!), knit winter hat embroidered with the players name, assist with meals during long road trips, provide a coach bus for the Presque Isle trip for the players and coaches, provide team suppers and team breakfasts, senior gifts and host an end of the year banquet. I am sure that there is more..... Please take a look at the attached information sheet and if you can come support Winslow High School Hockey try to bring some friends and have a good time!!!!
We will be handing out Super Raffle tickets this week through your team. Please sell the two booklets that we give you. We are asking Learn to Play to sell at least one booklet of tickets. While not mandatory – this fundraiser really helps keep our cost low. If you want more tickets then please contact Bert Languet at firstname.lastname@example.org or 660 7446. Prizes for selling the most dollar amount of tickets are:
1st place - $250
2nd place- $150
3rd place - $100
This raffle is our largest fundraiser and typically raises about $7500. CMYHA has the lowest costs in the state and we feel that this allows more kids to participate in our program and learn the art of skating and the joy of playing hockey. This year we made our learn to play program free and we have seen the numbers continue to rise. Many associations have seen a decline in membership. Our program has been able to keep the numbers steady and we seek to grow the number of children playing hockey over the next five years.
This year we did not host any Tier II or Tier III teams. Instead we will be offering an extended play season for all levels Cross Ice through Bantams. The season will consist of 10 games total and 5 practices. The teams will be chosen by the head coaches at each level based upon playing ability, with the one exception being Mite EP. Mite EP team will consist of last year Mites only unless not enough interest, then will be based on coaches recommendations. If you have a desire to play on the extended play team, then please communicate this to your coach.
Each team will consist of 14 players of which one will be the goalie. The cost for participating on the extended play team is $125 per player and the season will run from January 1st to March 31st. The coaches will make the selections and post the teams by December 15th, 2014. Scholarships are available, please click here. These games and practices will be in addition to your regular team games and practices.
CMYHA families raised a total of 546.5 pounds of food for the Food Pantry!!!! Thank you all so much to everyone that donated to help our community this holiday season.
Congratulations to the Squirt Black team for raising a total of 207.5 pounds -that's 13.8 pounds per player. They win the party pizza to The End Zone. Great job families!
