October Minutes

Motion to approve October minutes by Jeff, seconded by Shawn.  Moved.


PRIVIT – families to go back in to complete Rowan’s Law & Medical Form once teams loaded.  We couldn’t do this at the beginning of the year because participants did not know what team they were on.  Can do Rowan’s and medical.

IP & Novice Coaches MUST have C1.  No other certification accepted.  C1 geared for these age groups.

West will follow Hockey Canada guidelines for coaching certifications.  Hard to get enough coaches for HL if we want higher qualifications.  Would “strongly recommend” assistant coaches get coaching certifications.  Run clinics in March and September for C1.  Cost is approximately $118.  There is online, in class, on ice portion.

CHL Meetings – CHL to start fining organizations that do not attend the meeting.  If Frank or Mark cannot attend they need to email the board.


Meeting with City

Shawn and Derek met with Mike and Brad.  They agreed to cut down the shelf and secure it to the wall in the outer West room.  Talked about needing more ice.  Mike thinks it is possible.  Spring tryouts for everyone except Atom.  Discussed needing second set of half boards.  Brad to look for a spot to store a second set.  Good conversation about the Y.  Derek to set up a meeting between West/City/YMCA.
