Updates Regarding Teams and Coaches from the Board Meeting April 7th  

Coaches: 

As a group - based on who applied - the board voted on Head coaches for the 2014-2015 season. Once those positions are confirmed we will post those coaches with their teams on the webpage under TEAM TAB (this process will hopefully be completed by the weekend). 

Thanks to everyone who applied and even if you are not a Head Coach that doesn't mean you can't help out - just reach out to the named coach and express that interest. 

 

Tryouts: 

I thought I needed to touch on this– regarding the process. Some of you will remember how this was done in the past; one evaluator to rank 1-50 in 2 one hour sessions….. impossible! Then coaches would pick their teams and compare it to the 1 evaluators list and rankings and as long as they were close there was no questions. Last year and this year each head coach submits player evaluations to Bob Roche at the end of year, the evaluators who have over 100 years of Hockey experience with no attachments to the program and each has been coaching an evaluating from mites to high school. They then moved kids from hour to hour so players of same/closeness of ability can be compared and matched up against one another.  We have even added an extra hour of ice the past two years of tryouts so the evaluators can take a look at the A/B bubble kids and make a fair evaluation and decision on those players.  Each player was given a fair and honest tryout. Finally, as always the Board reviews and oversees the results and votes to approve teams.  

When it comes to this time of the year to post all the teams, it is very difficult for everyone involved – kids, parents, and board members.  No one wants anyone to get upset, but we understand it happens.  I wanted to communicate that there is no perfect way to do this, but the way we do this is 100 times better than how it has been done in the past. I would ask that the communication at home is honest about the process.  I would hope the conversation is let’s work even harder, lets prove those guys, girls, evaluators, whoever wrong.  If you think you should be on a higher team...then prove all those people wrong. Instead of making excuses lets turn it into a teaching moment and that goes for the kids who made that A team or might be that bubble kid, they need to continue to earn those spots.  It also go for the parents who talk negatively in front of those kids and sours their kid’s attitudes. At the end of the day all that matters is how much FUN are they having and are they continuing to improve. Lets work together in doing this.

 

Midget Hockey

Why hasn't a team been posted? - Only 9 kids signed up for Midgets. The Proposal below is an email sent by Tim Walsh to Midget Players: 

I am reaching out to all of you to see if you are interested in playing again next season for Quincy in the Presidents League. We are trying to determine how many teams we should have in the league for next season. Also, regarding Midget hockey for next season. A proposal has been discussed to make the President's League Team also the Midget Team in the South Shore Conference. We would have a President's practice during the week, as well as a Presidents Game on Sunday. We would also have a Midget game on either Saturday or Sunday from September through November. Once we get the number of kids committed, we will proceed from there. If you would please let me know what your plans are for next season it would be greatly appreciated. Have a safe Spring and Summer, and hopefully I will see everyone next season. Sincerely Tim Walsh  

 

Please reach out to Bob Roche or Tim Walsh if you are interested. We need to commit to a Midget team by April 13th. Time is of the essence. 

 

Girls Hockey: 

The Board also discussed the girls hockey program and felt strongly that a girls program is needed in Quincy.  In order for the program to succeed, girls must be registered on the website by April 13th.  An email was sent out (see below) to interested players and requested that they register ASAP and also forward his email to any one else that might be interested.  Anyone that has questions about this program can email Bob Roche or myself.

 

Email that was sent –(I attach because I know I didn’t reach everyone):

I wanted to send an email out regarding the girls program. 
I recently got an email saying that there was a rumor that QYH was going to "get rid" of the girls program. That is not true, we are trying to build the program at the girl level as well at the boy level. BUT the issue we have as a board is we need to make decisions on teams by April 13th, we need to submit all teams playing in the SSC making our commitment to the league. 
I have also heard that we only focus on the boys and don't care about the girls ... again not true. I am very frustrated by this because I believe we have made efforts to get the girls program going, especially this year. The girls were the only group that didn't have to submit a payment online, we just asked if you had interest to sign up. The U19 girls did sign up and we will have a team, other than the U19s we only received 8 registrations. Then at tryouts there was 16 total girls for U12 and U14 combined. 
So I hope you can understand my frustration when I am now getting emails asking why would we every get rid of the girls program, we can't have a team if no one signs up. We can't commit to ice and a league when no one signs up. 
So I am asking you if you haven't already done so PLEASE if you are interested in playing for U12 or U14 to sign up online. And PLEASE forward this email to anyone you think would be interested in playing. I need your help in this to get these girls signed up and commitment. 
This is very time sensitive, like I said we need to submit teams to SSC on April 13th so we will need everyone to sign up by Friday. 
Thanks 

 

Summer Hockey

QYH would like to continue mitey mites/learn to skate throughout the summer. Please look for more info on this in the coming weeks on the website as well as communicated through Bob Roche and the Hockey office. We are hoping to add to this idea, just trying to secure ice. If and when this happens it will be communicated ASAP.

 

NOTES:

Moving forward we will be posting Board of Directors bullet points from each meeting. We ask that if you have any idea, thoughts, and proposals for the program you please forward those along to any of the board members so we can present those ideas and thoughts at our next meeting. 

 

The next meeting is May 6th where we will be talking about goals for next season, filling committees (those committees will be posted online - if you are interested in helping with any of those please let me know), more topics will come up in the next couple weeks that we will need to address. Look for those notes every month. And again please DO NOT hesitate to reach out to us with your thoughts and ideas!!!!! 

 

My last point  - I have heard the phrase “the talk around the glass is…”  to much this past season, I have also heard people don’t want to come to the board because they don’t want to hurt their kid. PLEASE PLEASE do not feel this way, that is NOT the practice or should be the practice of anyone involved in this program. If there are issues, questions, concerns that come up – just email me, or grab me down the rink. If I can’t answer it at that time, then I will find out the answer for you. (Sorry I will get off my soap box now).

 

I am sorry for the length of this email/post but I wanted to try and communicate as much as I could in one place. We are looking into created a monthly newsletter, which we think will help with the overall communication within the program.

Thank you for taking the time to read this. 

 

I will post summer camps that will be at the rink in the coming days as well. 

 

Thank you so much for being part of this program 

Matt Gibbons
