Gearing Up for Start of IP2 Season ('13)
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.

Evaluation Schedule:

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). 
•   Check the Website Regularly.  Any Changes to schedules will be posted through the site. To Subscribe to the website so to not miss any changes please use this link. http://stmha.net/Leagues/1861/Webcal/

Food’s our thing. But like most things, every once in a while they need to be revamped. Given a fresh new look. A fresh new taste. So that’s exactly what we did. We’ve changed to bring you more.

So that’s what we’re giving you. More than meat. We’re giving you a place to create inspired dishes. And to find everything you need to make dinner worth sitting down for again.
