The executive would like to thank everyone for working together during another successful NGS Hockey season. It was a difficult year with only one rink, but thanks to the coaches and parents we were able to maximize our ice times as best as possible. The ice draft allowed coaches to select appropriate practice times and to identify available ice based on their game schedule. This allowed each coach an equal opportunity to select practice times. The shared practice ice worked well under the circumstances and the extra ice secured in other rinks helped to give our kids as much practice time as possible. It is normal that there are variations in the amount of practice times per team and this year was no different. This can happen for a number of reasons including different coaching approaches, inclement weather, scheduling problems etc. Despite the variations, most teams had similar amounts of practice times during the 2013-14 season. The executive has discussed the budget for the 2014-15 season and it is important to note:
Thank you for your continued support of NGS Minor Hockey.
