President of Golden Minor Hockey

Time to register for the Golden Minor Hockey Association

Golden Minor Hockey is working hard to prepare for another fun season on the ice.

Golden Minor Hockey is working hard to prepare for another fun season on the ice.

If your child has not yet registered,there is still time to sign them up. Along with being able to get information on the Golden Minor Hockey Assosication website, the association will also be taking part at the Community Connection night on Sept. 12 at the Golden Rec Plex.

President of Golden Minor Hockey, Brad Cable, thinks hockey helps participants in many different ways.

“It is great exercise and it is our game. It is Canada’s game,” Cable said.

He added that players are taught how to have fun on the ice while playing the game as safely as possible.

The association is also looking at holding more home tournaments this year for different divisions, as a way to get more time on the ice with less travel involved.

According to Cable there will be a mentoring program with the Golden Rockets this season.

“Players from the Rockets will work with our players at least once a week,” he said.

Anyone who registers for minor hockey prior to Sept. 10 will be able to take part in a multi-day hockey school between Sept. 10 and 13.

“It comes with a free jersey, and dry land and on ice training sessions. Peewee and above will be every day while the younger payers will be taking part on Sept. 11 and 13.”

The concession this year will be going out for public notice after many years of local volunteers helping run the stand.

Cable said this is being done to take some of the pressure off of the great volunteers who come out to help with the program.

“Whatever group comes in we are looking forward to working with them,” he said.

Another area the association is looking to expand is the number of referees they can use.

“Older kids can get involved in the program. Not only is it great exercise but it is also a way to make some money.”

Anyone interested in playing or volunteering in any way can visit www.goldenhockey.com, email hockey@goldenhockey.com or call 344-0305.
