Hello all, it's Steve Brittain, Co-Convenor for U9 this year. Welcome back to Metcalfe Jets Hockey. Our Development Ice will be starting on September 10th. It is basically a practice. Each child will receive 5 hours of ice time. After the Development Ice times are completed, we'll move into Sort Outs, which are evaluations to see if your child will play "A", "B" or "C" this year within our U9 age group. That will start on Sept 24th. Once that is complete your child may be asked to attend a scrimmage or 2, just to make sure we have everyone where they belong. Every year we rely heavily on you folks to help us out through volunteering. We will need lots of help, mostly for the Sort Outs. Please contact myself or Jason if you can help us on ice. Below I have split the kids up into 4 groups, look for your child's name and you will see the ice times and locations.

Sort Out times below. Also, I've added some ice times that your child may or may not be needed to attend. The additional ice times are to balance out the Teams and any last minute changes we may need to do. I will contact you directly if we need you to attend these ice times. Sort Out ice times are very important, these are the Evaluations. This helps us decide what level your child will be at for this coming year. It will still be a Practise format, but the kids will be graded on each skill. We have great Volunteers, so it will still be fun.

For this Development Ice, wear whatever jersey you want, for Sort Outs I will provide your child with a specific jersey. It will be reversible. Please do not lose it, you will be responsible for paying for it if lost. It happened last year.
Feel free to reach out anytime.
Thanks and see you at the rink,
Steve and Jason.
