I am sending out my first emails hopefully tomorrow to parents as the peewee house league convenor for the Kanata Minor Hockey Association (KMHA).
This is my second year as the peewee convenor and second year for the Peewee Convenor Notes blog.
One of my goals for the season is to be as open as possible in my communication. Information I pass on to the coaches should be fully accessible to everyone. There should not be any secrets in house peewee. I know as a parent in hockey I was often scratching my head on how and why things were being done.
The blog is a big opportunity to document all the things a convenor does. We can now look at last years 2009-2010 blog and get a pretty good idea on how the season went last year.
I plan to post as many questions and answers as I can on the blog and point parents here. If one parent has a question, no doubt many have the exact same question. The blog also allows comments, so there are further opportunities for community and collaboration.
I am also able to eliminate the need to print out over 200 hand outs and send multiple emails if information gets out on this blog. There should be no worries about lost emails either, as everything will be here as a reference.
If you have any feedback, comments, concerns, or anything else, please let me know by any means at any time in the season at firstname.lastname@example.org .
