Tyke Green ends winning season

The Millbrook Stars Tyke Green teams season came to a close at the Millbrook Arena over this past weekend. The Stars ended their season on a high note after beating the Lindsay Muskies Tyke Black team 3 games to none in a best 3 out of 5 game series.

The Stars playoffs commenced back in mid February as they quickly eliminated the Durham Crusaders 7-1, 6-3 and 4-1 and moved on to Round 2.

Round 2 commenced for the team in early March as the Millbrook Stars started their series against the Lindsay Muskies and got a quick lead in the series by two games after winning 6-3 and 8-4.

On March 21st the Millbrook Stars squared off against the Muskies and were able to fend them off winning by a score of 10-2. The ice pad down on Needlers Lane was packed as the Stars played in front of their home crowd. The match between the two teams saw back and forth action that drew many oohs and aahs from the fans. The Millbrook group got on the board early in the 1st period and didn't look back from there despite playing the majority of the 2nd period shorthanded. If not for the efforts of Landon Kirkwood, Griffin Fisher, Matteo Berardi, Jack Nichols and Troy Hicks on defence the score would have been much closer. These four players dug their corners and swiftly moved the puck up the boards and into the neutral zones where their forwards took care of business.

Starting the scoring was William Simpson followed by Noah Dunlop, Cooper Stephenson and Garrett Jones who all notched solo tallies. Graydon Jones, Tristan Lehman both had hat tricks for the Stars. Assists went to Graydon Jones (2), Tristan Lehman (2), Landon Kirkwood (2), Garrett Jones and Troy Hicks.

Tri County Convenor Ivan Disney presented the Tri County Tyke Championship trophy to Jayden Metcalf who is also to be commended on his efforts and talents in minding the net for the hockey club. After receiving their trophy the team then carried the celebration into the dressing room after some team photos.

Trevor Hammand regrettably was unable to make it to the game due to family commitments. The boys dedicated the play-off victory to him as he was instrumental in helping the team get to where they are at all season long.

The boys are once again to be commended on a stellar hockey season. The team had 33 wins, 5 losses and 2 ties throughout the season. They also won A - Championship trophies for the Baltimore Ice Dogs and Peterborough Tyke Showdown Tournaments. The coaching staff acknowledges the hard work, sportsmanship, team work and efforts that you have put forward this season. You are all true testaments as to what a "team" really is. We are proud of you all!

Congratulations Millbrook PeeWee Green

On Sunday January 11th, Peewee Green team brought home the MDMHA 'A' Championship trophy in an intense to the end nail biter with the win over the Ennismore Eagles.

This Championship game brought the teams to 4 overtimes starting with a 4 on 3 then 3 on 2, due to a late 3rd period Peewee Green penalty. The PeeWee green player left the 'sin bin' late in the 2nd overtime to bring the teams back to equal strength. With no goal in the 1st and 2nd OTs, a tension filled 2 on 2 OT lead to a dramatic 1 on 1 play-off in the final overtime.

The final score was 6 to 5.

Congratulations to the players and coaching staff for an incredible win!

**IMPORTANT** Notice To Parents:

OMHA Respect Integration Implementation

In an ongoing effort to foster a safe and enjoyable environment for our athletes in our great game, the OMHA is implementing a plan to ensure the OMHA is a complete Respect integrated organization.

Effective August 31, 2014, at least one parent or guardian of each player registered in the OMHA will be required to complete the online Respect in Sport Parent Education Program as a condition of their child's participation. This will need to be completed before your child can be rostered (and step on the ice) with any team, so we encourage you to complete this course on or before September 11, 2014 to ensure there is no delay.

To access this online program please visit: http://www.omha.net/page/show/885515-education and select the "Respect in Sport / Parent Program" tab near the bottom of the page.

The Respect in Sport parent program is a proactive, educational program that empowers parents with the tools to ensure the game is enjoyable and respectful for themselves, their children and all other stakeholders in the game. This portion of the program is only one of the three pillars of our respect platform. The Respect in Sport Activity Leader program is currently a condition of participation for all Team Officials (Bench Staff), and will be a requirement for all on-ice Volunteers and all on-ice referees (Age 16 and above), effective August 31, 2014. Through this mandate, all stakeholders will be introduced to Respect education when considering the needs of our athletes.

Millbrook and District Minor Hockey Association will be responsible for implementing these requirements as established by the OMHA and requires your support and cooperation with ensuring the completion of this certification. Should you have any questions or require assistance, please contact an Executive member.

Please ensure that you provide feedback as requested upon completion of the program, to provide your insights on optimizing program content, and system functionality.

Thank you for your commitment to the safety, enjoyment and success of your child, and all OMHA participants.

Get Started In Hockey With IP

MDMHA has decided to restructure our Mite program to follow the Hockey Canada lead for the benefit of developing our youngest players. Below and attached is some information that support our decision and the reasons why this change will help improve and encourage our young players to want to continue playing this great sport.

OMHA Initiation Program Details

“The Initiation Program is Hockey Canada’s premiere ‘Learn to Play’ program for players beginning hockey and is the foundation of skills development for hockey in the OMHA. The OMHA believes that players who learn the skills of the game are more inclined to enjoy playing. If they have the skills to play, they will love the game.”

“Hockey Canada developed the Initiation Program to make children’s first contact with hockey a safe and positive experience. It’s structured, learn-to-play hockey program designed to introduce beginners to the game’s basic skills. It enables participants to become contributing members of a team effort, develop self-confidence, and experience a sense of personal achievement. These goals are achieved in the atmosphere of fun and fair play.”

Benefits of the Initiation Program include:

  • More Puck Touches
  • Maximum Ice Usage
  • Increased Competition for all Players
  • Fun for all Participants
