Gearing Up for Start of IP1 Season ('14-'15')
Evaluation Skates start Monday September 23th at Joe Thornton Community Centre. This season we will be starting with 2 evaluation skates before we select teams. The Convener and Coaches will make teams after the second evaluation skate and players will begin to play and practice with their teams at that time.    

We have volunteer opportunities available:
(A) On-Ice Volunteer to assist with practice(s)
(B) On-ice rink board set-up/take-down throughout the season on game days. Helmets are required to go on-ice.

I know that everyone is excited to get things going for the upcoming great season.  Just a few reminders for the first day...   
•   Full Hockey equipment is mandatory. (Helmet, Mouth Guard, Neck Guard, Shoulder Pads, Elbow Pads, Hockey Gloves, Jock/Jill, Hockey Pants, Shin Guards, Hockey Socks and Hockey Skates, and stick).
•   Mouth Guards are Mandatory under OMHA Guidelines.  Your player will not be permitted on the ice without one. •   Bring a water bottle marked with your Player`s name on it.  (the ones with the long straw work best).

True Sport
The True Sport Principles are a rallying point for True Sport members — they are universal. The principles can be brought to life in any sport at any level, from playground to podium. An Olympic rowing squad can embrace these principles with the same sense of pride and purpose as an elementary school, an old-timers' league, or a community hockey arena. For sport to be truly good and have the opportunity to make the greatest difference, all seven of these principles need to be in play at all times, working in perfect balance with one another.
