The Gurr family have been active billets within the Junior Oiler program for years and we thank Tammy for taking on this position. It has two great panels — the first on Female Leadership and the second on Growing the Game. This session will be delivered in English with simultaneous French translation. The panel will be moderated by Tessa Bonhomme. Experiences with growing an all-girls local hockey association as well as growing the number of girls playing in a local hockey association will be discussed. The panel will be moderated by Cheryl Pounder. We thank you Jen for wanting to give back to our female division and helping support J'nai and her coaching staff this season.
If this is the case then the SFHA Executive reserves the right to extend the final cut dates for our U15 and U18 Rep tryouts so that all registered players get a fair and equal opportunity to tryout. The extension of any final cut date will not extend beyond September 30, and will be determined once tryout dates are confirmed for both SFHA and the Major Midget league. Player evaluations for Rep Teams and pre-season ice for House Teams take place over two weeks. Evaluation Schedules will be announced in August.
The league comprises five teams, representing four geographic "zones," and is played over a 32 game regular season. The BC FMAAA was initiated in the —08 season in response to the membership's desire to provide "an opportunity for elite female hockey players to come together on zone teams to challenge other elite Female Midget teams. Prior to the —16 season, local minor hockey associations were required to host their major midget teams, and oversee them accordingly.
