AGM
The FMH AGM will occur Wed 28 Aug @ 7pm.  Mark your calendar.  It will be your chance to take a close look at our financials, help pick the 24/25 Executive and Board, and give us your opinions how we can make next season great

If you are interested in joining the Board, or want to nominate someone for the Board, please contact a member of the current Executive (Jeff Peck, Jamie Seale, Heather Hasler, Crystal Brash, Debbie Donevan)



REGISTRATION
Registration fees remain unchanged!  Please register ASAP.  We are already half full.  Once we get to 3 teams per age division (1 x rep, 2 x LL) we will start putting players on a wait list.  First come, first served
 
 
REP TRYOUTS
Frontenac Community Arena is opening early so we can conduct Rep Tryouts In-House.  Optional Pre-Skates start 3 Sep.   Please see the online calendar for pre-skate and tryout information.  Use the TEAM FINDER option.
 
U9, U11 and U18 Coaches will be in touch with guidance to all prospective players.  U13 and U15 teams conducted Try-Outs in the the spring 
 
To Register for Tryouts please send $100 (Tryouts only) or $150 (Shake the Rust and Tryouts) to [email protected].  (Put your name/age division in comment section).  Registrations will be accepted up until Tryouts



LOCAL LEAGUE
Local League programming will start as per normal on 14 Sep.  Please see the online calendar for all practice times.  

Team Building Day will occur on Sat 21 Sep.  Evaluation Games will occur 23 & 24 Sept.  We will do our best to keep practices to the same nights as previous years, however registration numbers, and coach considerations may result in some adjustments.  
Monday - U8, U9, U15, U18
Tuesday - U11, U13

We will not entertain any team/coach requests for this season unless there is a documented player safety issue. While we have tried in the past, last year was completely unmanageable.


SELECT TEAMS
Due to strong #s and interest at our U13 age division, we are considering operating a Select Program for our LL players.  This will mean a few more practices and tournaments throughout the year.  More info to follow the end of September.

Depending on U11 Rep Tryouts, we may also consider offering U11 Select as well.  More info to follow the end of September


DEVELOPMENT
Excited to have our full roster of development coaches coming back to Frontenac this year including Kevin Druce, Darcy Greenway, John Boultbee and Dave McMullin


LOYALIST TOWNSHIP MINOR HOCKEY ASSOCIATION REP TRYOUTS
For all of our families information, we were approached by Loyalist to assist with their Rep pre-skates and tryouts as their arena renovations are a couple of weeks behind schedule.  We were very happy to help!
1 - When our Arena shut down unexpectedly a few years ago, Loyalist stepped up and gave our program some much needed ice time
2 - The extra ice needed by Loyalist was useful in convincing our Arena to open up early
It is a win-win!.  While we are competitors on the ice, we are partners in bringing youth hockey to our respective communities 

 
FACEBOOK GROUP
We are replacing our FB PAGE with a GROUP.  This will allow the platform to be more flexible and collaborative.  Anyone will be able to post questions, pictures etc.  It will also allow us to control the SPAM we receive on the PAGE.  It is still being built, but check it out and JOIN/FOLLOW here:
