Spring not only brings the arrival of warmer weather (in theory at least), but a watershed moment in the lives of many hockey parents – the chance to sleep in! Since October, families with kids under the age of 7 who participated in the Kemptville District Minor Hockey Association’s Initiation Program (IP), have had their alarms permanently set for 6 am (or earlier). That’s because ice time, an extremely valuable commodity, is made available to the youngest players at the earliest possible hours, i.e. between 6:30 and 8:30 am every weekend until March.

As a first time hockey mom, this experience was a total eye opener. Kids’ hockey has gotten a bad wrap in recent years for producing singularly focused child athletes, pushed by hyper competitive parents whose civility falls apart in a hockey arena. I was sceptical that kids’ hockey could be a convivial and potentially community building experience, especially at 6 am with under-slept parents and cranky kids. Boy, was I wrong.

Having registered my 5 year-old son and 7 year-old daughter, I saw up close the hundreds of volunteer hours parents donate per season to providing children in this community with quality hockey instruction and a team building experience. With a son who could barely stand up on the ice, Kemptville’s IP program had him skating, smiling, and holding a stick in short order.

The coaches, mostly dads, on our Winnipeg Jets IP team offered well-run and focused practices, where kids learned the basics, and truly had fun. With these practices often at the crack of dawn, I was amazed by the commitment and skill of not just coaches, but conveners, registrars and managers (moms and dads alike) that everyone brought to each practice, most of whom are juggling full time employment with long commutes during the week (myself included). But it wasn’t just my son’s team.

The Panthers IP had over 80 kids organized into five teams, all of whom were out in force for extremely early morning practices. Fuelled by copious amounts of coffee and camaraderie, seasoned parents welcomed us rookies with tips and good humour.

My daughter Clara, who was unsure of hockey, immediately warmed up to the experience of an all-girls team, Kemptville Storm, with purple jerseys and socks, no less. At 7, she was eligible for novice level hockey, but was offered the opportunity to learn the fundamentals by registering for a year of IP. She was in good company, with five other female players new to hockey also enrolled in the IP program.

Girls’ hockey is growing in this community, with over a dozen teams iced this past season and 180 girls registered. There was great excitement this season with the new logo, and players and parents alike have invested in new branded apparel to show their support for home-town hockey.

North Grenville is one of just a handful of communities that offers a girls’ initiation program, though parents can register their daughters for the co-ed Panthers IP as well. A graduate of some early CanSkate programs, Clara hit the ground running, and had exceptional opportunities to learn the ropes, and even play a few fun match ups against other associations. The atmosphere in the locker room was always positive, and the opportunity for a truly athletic experience on the ice was unparalleled.

The IP season culminated in a Kemptville tournament hosted by both the Panthers and Storm IP teams for fun games on half ice (no scores kept). The 8th Annual Adam Harlow Initiation Program Fun Day is a major fundraiser for the Adam Harlow Fellowship Fund, which seeks to finance the hockey registration fees for families unable to pay them. A fundraising breakfast in Adam’s honour is also offered. Adam was a ten year old boy from Kemptville who died tragically in 1999, but whose memory is kept very much alive through the indomitable efforts of his family.

According to the KDMHA website, approximately 700 players from 4 to 16 years old take to the ice for not just the Initiation Program, but all levels. In turn, 5,500 parents, grandparents, siblings, friends and relatives come to watch their games. Another 4,000 tournament/gaming participants from neighbouring communities come to Kemptville to play hockey. All powered by volunteers.

Like many parents, while I welcome the chance to sleep in, I can’t wait to see what next season has in store. To learn more about kids’ hockey in this community, visit KDMHA’s website at www.kemptvillehockey.com. Registration will be opening in April for next season!

Members are also invited to the KDMHA Annual General Meeting on Thursday, April 12, at 7pm in the Community Room at Grenville Mutual Insurance (300 Colonnade Drive). For girls interested in trying hockey, the Association is once again offering ESSO FUN DAYS. These are free introductory session for girls offered at the North Grenville Municipal Centre on Saturday, June 2 and Saturday, June 9. Registration is available on the KDMHA website and participants will receive a jersey to keep!

When we bought the team last April, there was a lots to do right away. The Midget draft was the next day and the prospect camps were coming up the next month. The 73’s had just finished a very successful season and had narrowly missed getting into the league finals. However, many of the star players were now moving on to University hockey, or other opportunities. This meant that we were in rebuild mode and had to find a new head coach and assistant coaches for the next year.

Operating a hockey team is not an easy task, it requires lots of people helping at all levels of the organization. We were lucky to have Terry Nichols as GM and a very strong volunteer group locally, who were a huge help. Our priorities were to put a strong team on the ice, enhance the hockey program, and continue the strong local community presence. We met with Mayor David Gordon in May, 2017, to tell him about our plan for the team and the things that we wanted to accomplish in the community. Mayor Gordon and his team were very supportive.

Our key initiatives were to build a workout facility for our teams to use for conditioning, run a kids hockey camp in the summer, hold a charity golf tournament, and various other community activities. Getting these kinds of projects done requires lots of community support, so we went out to our sponsors and asked them to partner with us to get these things done.

I am very pleased to report that we built a 1,200 square foot gym workout facility for the players and thanks to RONA Building Centre and Copperwood Construction for making this possible. We partnered with the local Canadian Tire and ran a minor hockey camp for over 100 local boys and girls in August. TDSI (Equinelle golf) was very instrumental in a successful golf tournament, which raised funds for the Kemptville Hall of Fame.

The start of the season came, and we were hopeful for a strong year; but, after the first month, our teams were struggling. We were forced to make some tough decisions regarding coaches and players: we replaced our head coach at both midget the junior level, and we made several trades, until we felt we had the right chemistry in place. As we moved forward, both teams started to improve, we began winning more games. In the second half of the season, both teams did well with the Jr. A team winning more games, and the U18 team making the playoffs.

Looking forward, there is still lots of work to be done, but the future looks good. Last year, we put the program in place and, this year, we are confident that we will have a winning product on the ice.

The Kemptville Peewee C2 hockey team just won the Upper Canada Minor Hockey League Championships against Ogdensburg. We played a tough series against Brockville in the semis. Then withdrew from the semi final game in Kingston Kids for kids Tournament to play the final league series game against 1st place Ogdensburg.

Our first game of the series ended in a 6-6 tie. Heading into the 3rd period down 3 goals, the kids fought hard to come back and tie it up. Game 2 was a tough 5-2 loss as we were missing a couple of key players. Game 3, still missing those key players, everyone else stepped up. Down 2-0 going into the 3rd, they again came back to win, final score of 3-2. Game 4, Ogdensburg scored first, but our kids were determined to win. They tied it up with 17 seconds left in the 2nd period. Scoring again in the 3rd, they held them off and were victorious! The Comeback Kids!!

Tiana Lisle grew up in North Gower and played her minor hockey for the Kemptville Storm and Rideau St Lawrence Thunder girls hockey associations. She accepted a spot to play for the Liberty University Lady Flames in Lynchburg, Virginia, and is at present a sophomore and honour student at the school. The women’s team plays in the ACHA division 1, a 23-team league that spans most of the continental USA. On Sunday, March 18, the Lady Flames, who had advanced to the final by beating the University of Minnesota and Colorado University, skated to a 2-1 victory in the finals over Adrian College at Nationwide Arena’s Ice Haus in Columbus Ohio. Tiana will continue to attend Liberty for two more years, majoring in Kinesiology with a teacher licensure.

Congratulations to Tiana; she will be an inspiration to other local young women passionate about their sport.

As Spring is in the air, ignore the white stuff still on the ground and picture being on the ball diamonds later next month. Kemptville Legends is a softball league started last year for ladies in our community. As a parent, it is hard to find the time and finances to include sports and fun times for ourselves, but rolemodeling this for our kids is equally important. The Kemptville Legends had a successful, fun season last year. Keeping costs to an absolute minimum, so that it is affordable to fit into your budget after kid-related expenses for many, is no easy task. Having to start a league from scratch last year, including new equipment, bases, shirts and everything else was only possible because of our 2017 sponsors, Saltastic, To Be Continued, Herbal One, Motortrendz, R. Rose Automotive, Conquer the Unhealthy You, and O’Reilly’s Fitness Centre. Kemptville Legends is very thankful they could help out so ladies could have an affordable night out.

Registration is ongoing. Every skill level is welcome – the teams are balanced with some ladies who played when they were kids and still want to play if their bodies will still co-operate, some youth that have aged out of minor leagues, and some beginners who want to learn the sport and have a fun fitness night out with friends. If you can’t commit to every week, you can also register as a spare.

Registration is now open for the 2018 season, which runs early May to late August. Games will be Monday nights, either 6.30 or 8.30 pm. The fee is only $100 if you register before April 1, and $120 if you register after that date. You can just stop in to Saltastic in Kemptville for in-person registration, or get the form from Kemptville Legends Facebook Page. For more information, you can email KemptvilleLegends@gmail.com.

Ladies – take some time for yourselves this summer!

The face of minor hockey in the province is changing, as the Ontario Minor Hockey Association (OMHA), in partnership with Hockey Canada and the Ontario Hockey Federation, has formally announced a transformation in programming, which includes the implementation of a cross/half-ice game rollout-out through to the 2019-2020 season for Novice and below players.

“Station-based practices, small area games, lightweight blue pucks and age-appropriate ice size ensure players are engaged and have the right start in their hockey experience,” says OMHA Executive Director Ian Taylor. “Scaling the game to match the age group allows young players the opportunity for more puck-touches which promotes greater opportunity for skill-development in puck-handling, shooting, skating, coordination and decision-making.”

Hockey Canada has established national guidelines to help ensure optimal development for players at a crucial introductory stage, which the OMHA began implementing this season:
Currently, game play for the Initiation group (5 & 6 year-olds) is now Cross-Ice.

Effective 2018-19, game play for Tykes will be half ice.

The following season, games for Novices (8-year-olds) will start with Half-Ice and transition to Full-Ice over the second half of the season.

“This program was developed to allow kids to have fun, learn skills, and develop confidence,” says Paul Carson, Vice-President of Membership Development for Hockey Canada. “Their field-of-play now matches their size, and these players will be able to hone in on their skill-development in a way that larger ice surfaces just aren’t conducive to.”

Age appropriate programming includes an increased emphasis on skating skills, increased number of puck battles, passing, shooting, ice awareness, and an overall elevation of hockey sense.

“Right now, we may all be too focused on over-competing and under-teaching,” says Phil McKee, Executive Director at the Ontario Hockey Federation. “This fresh direction demonstrates that organizers are thinking about long-term goals that include short-term benefits.”

The Ontario Minor Hockey Association, founded in 1935, is a leader in community sport and oversees a participant base of 300,000 consisting of players, coaches, trainers, officials, hockey volunteers and parents across the province. The OMHA works with its 225 local minor hockey associations and annually coordinates 28 leagues to create the best minor hockey experience in Canada. For more information, visit http://www.omha.net.

When you walked into the room at eQuinelle Grille last Sunday afternoon, you could feel a sense of pride and family, as the “Boys of Winter” wrapped up their season with a Banquet and Awards celebration. Meet & Greet was a casual, low key affair, anticipating what was to come next. Beverages flowed as the luncheon buffet was being prepared by eQuinelle staff for a throng of invited guests. When inside the room, there was a large screen TV on the wall that had a fantastic slide show, prepared by Joe Jefferies, of some action-packed moments from the season. Paul LeBreux, partner/owner of the 73’s, was extremely proud to be part of the ownership and what the team had achieved.

After everyone was fed and watered, MC GM Terry Nichols gained control of the room to extend a warm welcome, with a brief explanation of the history of the awards to be presented and an introduction of partner/owner, Joe Jefferies. Joe offered his appreciation from the owners to the volunteers, on and off ice personnel, Shoeless Joe’s for supplying out of town teams with meals, community sponsors, a special mention to Good Night Bedding for being part of promoting home game 73’s jersey night. A huge thank you was given to Eric Norenberg of KBC – RONA and Kevin Scott of CopperWood for their contributions to making a much-needed work-out and weight facility a reality. Another thank you went out to Frank Hoffman, from Canadian Tire Corporation, for sponsoring the 73’s Kids Summer Camp for local players. Special thanks to Tubman’s Funeral Home, Harvex, Nautical Lands Group, Myers, KrisAlis, Fat Les, Tim Hortons, Urbandale, Sauve Heating, Grahame’s Bakery, Kemptville Suites, KBC, Cruickshank Const., First Stop Tool Rentals, Gabriel Pizza, EQ Homes, Bridgeport Colonnade, Jonsson YIG, 3C Underwear, Classic Graphics, CopperWood GC, Cogeco. Bouquet to Katherine of TMSI (eQuinelle Golf) for making the Banquet possible.

Then, just shortly after Joe’s time in the spotlight, Jason York appeared on the screen from Calgary, were he was covering a game for TSN, to express his best wishes and appreciation. Overall, partners were satisfied with the 73’s rebuilding structure.

Before the hardware was presented, it was agreed that next year’s Banquet would be later, as Kemptville will be in a playoff run. The awards were handed out with pride, and pictures taken to record the moment before the crowd dispersed. See you at the Spring Import & Prospects Camp, May 5 & 6.

Awards were handed out to the following:
David Rigby most valuable player – Ashton Fry
Three Stars award – Ashton Fry

Final home battle to face their nemesis Brockville Braves on Sunday, March 4, resulted in another loss, as they were hammered 4 to 2. Eric Faith, with the help from Kirkby, to rifle one top shelf over Cooper Lukenda opened the first frame to give Brockville one up at 4:22.

Brockville still on the attack in the second stanza, as Kirkby with Holland found Eric Faith to notch his second goal at 9:48. Erick Faith, assisted by McMahon and Vlahos, with man advantage, marked his PPG and hat-trick at 11:36. Tyson Kirkby from Kerr to give the Braves a four point lead to close out twenty at 14:42.

Jeff Taylor, with combination from Thousand and Fry, to break Nick Wiencek’s SO attempt over blocker side for his first marker of season at 5:38. Kemptville came on again at 19:05, when Meyer blew across the line, back to Patterson on point, and Ashton Fry on the corner pumped it home. Brockville Braves out shot their opponents by 33 to 26, and Kemptville had two PP attempts without results, as Brockville capitalized on one-for-one PP.

Next road game on Friday night in Pembroke to meet Lumber Kings, only to miss the mark in OT and go down to a 2 to 1 defeat. First frame remained scoreless, as both clubs used the full ice surface without beating Nick Bond or Jake Smith.

Kemptville drew first blood, as Dennison tic-tac-toed to Daskas, over to Ryan Palikowski in the lane, to drive it through the pipes at 8:16. After Lumber Kings pulled their stopper at 19:31, and Zachary Cross dumped in the garbage at 19:43 to force OT. Browne, with Malcolm, hit Jarrad Vroman up high to lift it top corner at 1:03 to break the tie for Pembroke Lumber Kings 2-1 squeaker.

Special teams were asleep, as 73’s with 8 PP, and Lumber Kings with 7 PP without results, and Pembroke’s 33 SOG, with Kemptville’s 27 SOG.

With a very close contest Friday in Pembroke, the 73’s were pumped for their one more long stretch to challenge the Hawkesbury Hawks on Saturday night to clip their wings for 5-2 win.

Kemptville opened the attack, as Hunter over to Meyer across to Ashton Fry top of the circle to pull the trigger at :12 past Matthew Petizian. Domitrovic attacked the line, back to Bondy to launch a missile into the fray, and Matthew Titus slammed in the rebound at 1:56 to make it a 2-goal lead. Hawkesbury’s Chris Smith, assisted by Anderson and Beaudin-Tougas, broke Cooper Lukenda’s SO attempt at 2:55 to end the period.

Second frame belonged to Kemptville, as Beaton flew up the wing, back to Fraser on the line to set up Cole Dennison for his first marker of the season at 11:02. Fry combined with Hunter off the wall feathered to Jacob Thousand in the half circle over stopper’s shoulder at 16:27. Dennison, with Fraser on the point, so Thomas Daskas could find the back of the net at 17:41 to give Kemptville 3-goal lead.

Final twenty, Hawkesbury replaced their stopper with Peter Brooks, hopeful to give the team some life. Kemptville 73’s, with man advantage, went south when PP was shut down with Chris Smith SHG counting his second of the night, assisted by Legue and Jankowski at 8:41. Kemptville 73’s walked away with a victory to end their season.

Hawkesbury out-gunned Kemptville by 48 SOG to 36 SOG, and 73’s had four attempts, and Hawks two, without results.
