My name is Anthony Hunter and I am your son's Peewee house convenor for the 2011-2012 KMHA hockey season.
This is my second year as the peewee convenor and fifth year in peewee hockey. My son Dylan is a minor peewee this year and his older brothers, Andrew and Brad, have done two years in peewee.
I also still play hockey. My wife Donna gets to be a big fan of hockey and four sets of smelly hockey equipment thrown in the basement.
Between hockey and Kanata soccer, I think there are twenty nine or so seasons of my son's sports teams. If I am not coaching my son's team, I am always helping out in some capacity. It is way more fun being on the ice or field rather than sitting in the stands. Especially at 6:00 A.M. in a cold arena in February.
Last year I head coached the Atom Ice Cobras A1 and assist coached with Peewee Black Ice B1 and Bantam Kaos C3.
I have several goals for the 2011-2012 season.
My primary goal for the season is to ensure that each and every player has fun, fun and more fun. Making sure the players enjoy their hockey season is the only thing that truly matters. If the players have fun and want to continue playing hockey next year, the season will be a success.
To ensure the players have fun, my next responsibility is to ensure the teams are balanced equally. Every player needs to learn and experience the wins and losses. Nobody has fun loosing every game and winning every game equally deprives players and their teams of valuable hockey lessons.
My third goal is to ensure every team has a set of coaches and volunteers who will promote fun and development both on and off the ice. This obviously depends on the most challenging task of finding the right volunteers and have every parent help to make a successful team and season. Let me know how you can volunteer this season.
As I said in a previous post, my final goal for the season is to be as open as possible as your convenor. This blog is one way to make that happen.
