2014–15 SMHA Hockey Registration

Saskatoon Minor Hockey Association Moves to Spring Registration for 2014

Registration for SMHA for the 2014-2015 hockey season will take place April 15, 2014 – June 15, 2014. There will not be a fall registration.

Why the change to spring registration?

Due to increasing registration numbers and limited ice availability, SMHA registration for 2014-2015 will take place this spring.

The need to gather numbers to insure sufficient ice allocation is paramount. SMHA has grown from 245 teams in its leagues in 2007-08 to 294 teams in 2013-2014. On top of this, SMHA has access to one less sheet of ice now than it did in 07-08.

This type of growth has put pressure on the allocation and scheduling of ice. Having registration numbers in the spring will assist to start ice allocation and scheduling sooner than we do now.

The move to spring registration is a good business initiative for a growing registration base and static ice availability.

We thank all SMHA families for their understanding and cooperation with this change in timing.

There will not be fall registration. Please register in the period noted above in order to secure minor hockey registration for next season.

KidSport Family Mini-Golf Tournament

The Saskatoon KidSport committee is hosting its annual Family Mini Golf
Tournament at Market Mall on February 9, 2014
. The event runs from
11:00am until 5pm. Families are encouraged to come out and play a round
of mini golf for $24.00/group of four with all proceeds going to KidSport! No pre
registration is required, just come out an have some fun. There are
lots of great prizes and some of our local sport celebrities will be in
attendance including the Saskatoon Blades, U of S Huskies and the
Saskatoon Hilltops.

KidSport™ is a children’s charity dedicated to assisting children of
families facing financial obstacles to participate in community sport
programs.

We believe that no kid should be left on the sidelines and all should be
given the opportunity to experience the positive benefits of organized
sports. KidSport™ provides support to children in order to remove
financial barriers that prevent them from playing organized sport.

All kids should be given the opportunity to develop healthy lifestyles,
no matter the financial barriers that may exist. Staying physically
active helps encourage children to maintain healthy habits throughout
their whole lives. The challenges that come with playing sports also
teach children valuable life lessons and skills including leadership,
hard work, dedication and self-confidence.
