Presidents Message (Thorncrest Minor Hockey League)

PrintPresidents Message

Dear Hockey Families,

THANK YOU to the many volunteers that make our minor hockey season possible. From the tireless efforts of our coaches, assistant coaches, trainers, managers, convenors and all the behind the scenes volunteers.

To the parents who are always there carpooling and cheering on their teams, a huge THANKS.

The aim of the Thorncrest Minor Hockey League and the message that we are diligently promoting to our membership and throughout our community is to focus on teaching and building upon the fundamentals of hockey.

To help players not only develop their hockey skills but also to maintain health through exercise, while instilling the importance of teamwork and fair play – extremely important life lessons that team sports unquestionably provides.

Unfortunately, throughout the years, there seems to be less volunteering, whether it be on the bench or behind the scenes.

We all have busy lives, but we need to make time for the kids.

Please remember the next time you want to complain about a coach, other coaching staff, on ice officials or a board member, they are volunteers and they are volunteering for your child to have fun and play hockey!

Wishing you good health and safety,

Andy Schiavone & Julian Herzberg
Thorncrest Minor Hockey League
