The Turkey Raffle is our largest fundraiser of the year. It is important that everyone understand the value a small contribution of their time has on assisting with the overall operating expenses of our Association.

We will be operating the raffle from November 16 through December 24. Each division will be tasked with helping out during one of those six weeks.

Over the next several weeks, your division Director will be soliciting volunteers to sign up for time slots for your division's week. Please make every effort to assist, or recommend someone you know that may be able to help out.

If anyone is reluctant due to not having done this before, there will be very simple directions left at the raffle table, or they can drop by the canteen for a crash course in putting off a raffle. Every effort will be made to pair you up with someone who has done this before.

Thank you for your assistance with this fundraising effort.

All players must be registered with Stephenville Minor Hockey before they can go on ice with their division for practices or games. As part of the registration process, your child obtains insurance coverage from Hockey Canada. Without this coverage your child is not protected and should not be on the ice.

Stephenville Minor Hockey will remove players from the ice who are not registered with Stephenville Minor Hockey Assocation. Registration can be completed by visiting the canteen during Minor Hockey hours.

Dressing Room Assignments/Dedicated Female Dressing Room

Stephenville Minor Hockey Association would like to inform players and parents that going forward there will be assigned dressing rooms for each time slot on the schedule. Players and parents are asked to strictly adhere to the schedule, and dress only in the rooms assigned. Any player found dressing in an unassigned room will have his gear moved. Please refer to the schedule to see the rooms assigned to each time slot.

Dedicated Female Dressing Room- # 6

Starting with next weeks schedule all female players must dress in the dedicated female dressing room. Stephenville Minor Hockey has secured the use of dressing room number 6 as the dedicated female dressing room during minor hockey hours.

No Males of any age are permitted to enter the female dressing room for any reason with the exception of a Male coach. Male coaches will be permitted access to the dressing room prior to practices and games and after games if accompanied by a female coach, female director, or in the absence of the first two options, a female parent.
If a female player wants her skates tied by a male, she will have to leave the dressing room. We will try to ensure there is a chair outside the room during minor hockey hours.

This rule will be strictly enforced.

Parents - Respect in sport

The Respect in Sport Parent Program is an effective and informative online training program for parents of active children. This unique certification program complements Respect in Sport for Coaches/Activity Leaders by reinforcing a parents role in a child or youth’s activities, encouraging positive sport behaviors, and providing insight into the various roles other individuals (such as coaches and officials) play. This program empowers parents to ensure the safety of their children, encourage positive and effective communication, and to enhance a child’s fun and camaraderie of the activity. The program is mandatory for parents of first year players in Hockey NL beginning the 2012-2013 season and will be mandatory for all parents in 2014-2015.
