August Minutes

Motion to approve August minutes by Spencer Noonan, seconded by Ryan Brown.  Moved.


Select will not be run by the GLHA this year.  Select to be run by the 4 associations.  Chris Hodgins will run it for West London.

Privit / Rowan’s Law

West and Bandits were the only 2 associations that tried to use Privit.  Hopefully will run better next year and be linked to the HCR.


House League

Evaluations this weekend.  Need 3 coaches (Minor PeeWee, Atom, Minor Atom).  Coaches meeting Monday at 7pm.  Bruce will hand out equipment at that time.



179 registered.  Evaluations Saturday.  Grouping all 2015s together for the season.  Have ordered 40 more jerseys/socks/medals.



157 players.  Both goalies trying out for MD.  Some minors will have to move up to major.  Gender Identity talk completed.



Tryouts wrap up tomorrow night (with the exception of Midget).  Bandits adding extra PeeWee team which will be Bandits and West players.  This will be run by the Bandits.



Meeting cancelled. 









130 teams registered (92 at this time last year).  Heavy in novice, weak in A.

Idea to rename tournament to Doug Jarrett Memorial Tournament.  Family support it and may do something like an MVP award.  Doug was the first NHL player from London.  Emails would be sent out at the end of the year to teams to make them aware of the name change.  Would do gradual name change and keep West London a part of the name in the early stages.

Motion by Spencer to start process of renaming tournament.  Seconded by Ryan.  MOVED. 

Spencer and Ryan will work together on this.



Kristie to collect police checks and declarations once teams are made and collect new Concussion Code of Conduct for bench staff and on-ice helpers.



MD jerseys have gone out. 

No new style Midget MD jerseys.  Derek said they had jerseys when he coached Midget MD (where did they go?). 

We are going to be short jerseys in HL due to high registration numbers. 

Blue pucks are in.  Goalie equipment in.

Conflict jerseys are in coach’s room.


Hockey Development

Had 90+ skaters at the preseason skates.  Have 20 goalies for the goalie clinic (will let 1 goalie in off waiting list for 21).  3 PD points available for certified DS1 coaches that attend the goalie clinic.



Photo Day for MD – October 5th at Nichols.  For HL and IP – November 2, 6, and 7.


Ice Update

Still waiting for Shamrock to be scheduled.
