It will be scheduled for October 15th, This year’s guest speakers will include a representative from USA Hockey who will provide an overview of USA Hockey’s American Development Model (or “ADM”) for youth players, and Oswego State men’s coach Ed Gosek, who will speak on parent education.

Coaches Pre-season Meeting:

Attention OMHA Coaches and candidates for any and ALL levels:

We are hosting a mandatory coaches meeting on Friday September 19th, starting at 7:00 pm at Camp Hollis. No matter if you are thinking of being a helper at our youngest level or head coach at our oldest level, we need you to be present. To insure that all coaches are given the same information and opportunity to access the same resources we are providing this opportunity, we want our coaches to be on the same page working together as a team.

There will be a wide range of topics covered, and plenty of opportunity for open discussion of ideas and improvements.

We will start sign ins at 6:45 and formal meeting at 7:00. Please set aside this time to ensure our seasons all start on the right foot.

You are welcome to bring your own drinks, snacks will be provided. There is also the opportunity to come and spend the night so hockey talk can go well into the night. If you do plan on staying, please bring bedding and bath supplies. Coffee will be provided in the morning.

Again this meeting is intended for anyone looking to step on the ice and help out our kids, not just head coaches!


Referees Clinic to be held in Oswego:

Oswego will again host a referee’s clinic on Sunday Oct 5th at the SUNY Oswego Campus Center. This Clinic will meet the requirements of a pre-season clinic that all referees must attend. We are always looking for referees if you have an interest please check our website for more information.

Volunteers:

In addition to those that serve on the board many thanks go out each and every year to those who selflessly step forward in support this organization there are definitely too many to name. The time and effort all of you put fourth in support of this organization is greatly appreciated.

This organization exists and continues to thrive based on all your support.
This year, as is the case every year, there will be many opportunities for everyone to step up in support of the players, coaches, and the program. Either working the concession stand, being a member of a committee, or working a tournament I would like to encourage all of you to continue support the kids by helping in any way you can.

As always we would like to thank our sponsors and encourage our membership to continue to support our sponsors and the community by patronizing their businesses. You can find our sponsors listed on our website and on the banners and dasherboards at the rinks.

I would like to wish all of you the very best for this upcoming season. With the hope that this will be another fun, exciting, and fulfilling season for the kids.

Sincerely,

Dan Bartlett OMHA President
