THANK YOU TO KMHA FAMILIES
MESSAGE FROM THE KMHA HEAD COACH:
I am writing this letter to personally thank each and every one of you for your contribution and active participation in making the 2012 - 2013 Kelowna Minor Hockey Association season a success.
I would like to thank all of the parents and others who ensured our hockey players arrived at the rink so they had the opportunity to enjoy the great game of hockey. The early morning practices and games, the road trips and expense of playing hockey requires a true commitment. The effort is worth it.
I would like to thank all of the individuals that volunteer their time throughout the year to help make events, games and practices successful. Our association has close to 1400 participants playing on 76 teams with over 400 volunteer coaches, managers, trainers, team accountants, tournament coordinators,etc. Through all of your efforts and commitment we have a minor hockey association for our children.
We had numerous tournament victories in all our divisions, many exciting league and playoff games throughout the season and two provincial championship teams.We hosted numerous tournaments that created a lot of hockey fun and excitement ending with the Showcase of Champions and hosting of the Bantam Tier Two Provincials.
I would like to wish all families a safe and happy spring and summer and wish you nothing but the best and good luck in all your future endeavours.
KMHA Head Coach

BC HOCKEY PROVINCIAL CHAMPIONS:
Kelowna Minor Hockey Association would like to congratulate our Fripp Warehousing Midget Tier 1 Jr. Rockets and our Midget Tier 4 Jr. Rockets on a fantastic season. After sweeping the OMAHA Championships these teams went on to dominate at their respective Provincial Championships. The Midget Tier 1 team went 4-1 in round robin play and went on to defeat Langely (who they suffered their only loss to in the round robin portion of the tournament) by a score of 2-1 in an overtime period that had 10 seconds remaining. A fantastic and exciting finish to a truly outstanding season for this team. Our Midget Tier 4 Jr. Rockets were the top team at their provincial championships after the round robin portion of the tournament with a impressive 4 wins and 1 tie. They went on to face Burns Lake in the final and took the Championship in an exciting, very disciplined 2-0 win. We are so proud of these teams and their success over the 2012/13 season. Thank you to the coaches and their players on representing our association with pride and getting the job done!!! To our graduating Midget players thank you for all your efforts in your KMHA jersey we will miss you and wish you the best of luck as you continue your journey in hockey and in life!!!
