Our volunteers – the tournament doesn’t run without you so thank you SO MUCH to everyone who helped this weekend. Not only did our U15 families help but many others at TASA who don’t have kids in U15 and some who don’t have kids in TASA at all….and some who found themselves re-arranging their day to fill in a vacant volunteer spot at the last minute (amazing)! Giving your time is what makes a community so thank you x 100 to all who helped in any way. ?
SMC Staff – thank you for allowing us to host the tournament and having your staff be so accommodating and fantastic with keeping the facility running smoothly!
Our timekeepers and officials – usually a thankless job but please know how much we appreciate your time and effort this weekend.
The players and parents who took on the job of food services to provide some great eats for everyone.
Last but not least, of course, thank you to all the teams who participated. We hope you had a fantastic weekend!

Have you ever thought about being a goalie? Now is your chance to give it a try. Hockey Nova Scotia is pleased to offer the following initiative for first-time goalies in the metro area:
For any Minor or Female players in U11 or higher who are considering playing the goalie position in the 2022-23 season, we are offering threeFREE1.5 hour goalie development sessions. The first two sessions will be Sept 17 and Oct 22 at the BMO Centre in Bedford? The third session will be early in 2023.In collaboration with the associations, we will provide the goalie equipment for the first two sessions. Players will be grouped in either U11/U13 or U15/U18. In addition to the development sessions, any first-time goalies from these sessions who stay in the goalie position all season will have half their hockey registration reimbursed at the end of the season. Attendance is limited to 20 players per session so get your name in early.
To summarize, for first-time goalies, onSat, Sept 17 there will be a 90 min session for a U11/U13 group and a 90 min session for a U15/U18 group. The same for Sat, Oct 22. Gear can be provided if needed. There will be one more session in early 2023 for each group. All sessions are free and will be in Bedford at the BMO Centre. Any players who attend the sessions and stay with the goalie position all season will be reimbursed half of their hockey registration.
