New Years Greeting From AMHA President Tim
Hello AMHA Hockey Family, 
I would first like to Wish all of you a Merry Christmas and Happy, Healthy and Joyful Holiday Season and New Year. 

Quick summary of season to date: 
The U5 teams is improving their skills each week and show great promise as they begin their hockey career with the Vipers.
 So far this season the Vipers have represented our club very well in all divisions, start with the U7, U8 & U9, who have dominated their competition in half ice action. Scoring is not kept on the board, but the players know the score if you ask them. I personally have received many compliments on the skill level of these players and the coaching they receive. 
The U11 currently sit with 5 wins, 2 losses and one tie in regular season and went 3-0 in Pool A of the Silver Stick in Collingwood. They came up short in the Semis to Wingham losing 4-0 but can keep their head high with an awesome team effort. They also hosted a successful tournament on December 17th so thank you to the team and the volunteers involved. 
The U18 team is charging along with 10 wins in regular season. The are competing in the Silver Stick Finals in Pelham Jan 11 – 14, 2024 after going 2-1 in their pool and defeating Point Edward in the Semis 6-5 and then conquering Collingwood T2 4-0 in the Finals. Keep up the great play and all the best in January in the finals. 
Our U21 have a record of 4 – 1 – 3 to this point having a good start to the season. Check out their schedule for a fun night of hockey. 

What is coming up in the New Year: Spread the word that we have AMHA Hockey Day on January 6th, 2024.   Schedule of the Day will be posted shortly with some fun things to participate in. There will also be a Family Skate time during the day.
