To the Barrie Minor Ball Hockey League Players, Parents, Guardians Firstly, I would like to thank each and every one of you again that have participated in the 2013 Barrie Minor Ball Hockey League.
Now onto the upcoming Barrie Minor Ball Hockey League and sport in our community. We are excited to welcome Mr. Marco Mariani who has overseen the Bradford and Innisfil Minor Ball Hockey Leagues.
Marco has been with the sport for over 15 years as a player and now league executive and has assisted at the provincial level for the governing body, the Ontario Ball Hockey Association.
On behalf of the Barrie Minor Ball Hockey League, it’s members, it’s families both past and present I would like to thank each of you who have participated from 2000 when the program began. I have been with the sport of ball hockey for over 25 years and have decided to take a step back and focus on the Provincial and National Board of Director’s to continue growing the sport. I will remain with the local program as the past president and will work with Marco Mariani and will be around during the Day of Champions year end celebrations.
Now moving forward and there will be a smooth transition from the previous executive to the new executive cause the interests of the players are paramount. The Barrie Minor program will continue to ensure the continued improvement of individual playing skills and enjoyment of the game through, contributing to the individuals' personal growth through the development of self-confidence, fair play, and sportsmanship, monitoring and ensuring the fair and equitable distribution of playing time, and improvement of the individuals' skill base.
The program will continue to be setup in a house league format, with individual registration and we will permit for two friends to play together. Every participant will receive a jersey and the eleven week program including playoffs which conclude with our Champions Day.
We have attached the information flyer and registration form and ask that you contact Marco Mariani for any questions.
On behalf of the Barrie Minor program we look forward to seeing each of you again and with your continued support, our community can look forward to a long and successful relationship with our children playing the game of ball hockey in Barrie.
Yours in sport,
