Equal Ice Time

The Vancouver Island Amateur Hockey Association (VIAHA) recently released a bulletin regarding the Equal Ice Time policy for minor hockey teams on Vancouver Island. The VIAHA regulation on equal ice time, directed at both recreational and competetive teams, states that all players receive equal ice time as much as possible.

From the bulletin "We are not in the business to win games this is left to our Junior and Professional counterparts, in minor hockey we are in the business to expose children to hockey and to learn valuable life skills that they will hopefully take with them into adulthood."

The bulletin is available here.

Dressing Rooms - Please Read

Unfortunately there have been several thefts from the player dressing rooms during practices.

It is important that everyone be aware that dressing rooms are locked for all games and practices. Pearkes Rec Centre is a public facility with many people wandering its halls. It is best for the players to leave their valuables at home. But if they do bring them to the rink, they should be kept safe by locking the dressing room door.

Also, please make sure that players are leaving the dressing room clean and tidy after all practices and games. This goes for when they are playing at Pearkes or any other rink.

Reminder from Pearkes Rec Centre

Reminders for SMHA families from Pearkes Recreation Centre

With the 2013/2014 hockey season getting into full swing the staff at Pearkes have asked we remind our SMHA families of the following:
- Parking in the back lane and roundabout (behind the green rink) is NOT allowed. This is a fire lane.
- Dogs are not permitted anywhere in Pearkes, the rink concourses or the rinks themselves. The exception is Guide dogs.
- There is NO hockey playing permitted in either of the concourses (warm areas).
- Dressing room keys must be signed out and a key exchange done.
- Lock the dressing room while on the ice to reduce the possibility of theft.
- Please leave the dressing rooms and all rink areas clean and tidy on leaving.

Thank you for your cooperation.
