If you have not received notification from your director or you dont see the team listed here, they are not in. SDI is shipping them to us as soon as they are available but please remember this time of year shipping companies are overwhelmed and there may be a slight delay in us receiving them.As there are no volunteers assigned to the remaining shifts, please seek assistance from the arena staff once you arrive for team pictures. They will provide access to the skate shop for team reps picking up pictures.

Jumpstart Program Clarification
Hello Fort McMurray Chapter members
We are immensely grateful for the efforts you have all made to help kids in your community.
We want to provide some important clarification on how we can support Fort McMurray through Jumpstart in the most meaningful way.
When we first reached out to some chapter members in a conference call, we had advised them on the availability of funds to support community development programs (CDP’s) in Fort McMurray and the surrounding area. As a result of the challenges facing the community, Jumpstart promoted CDP funding for a broad array of programs that affected large groups of kids in schools, recreation centres, etc.
Unfortunately, there has been a misinterpretation of the new plan to address CDP funding intention for the community and it has mistakenly been promoted that all children in Fort McMurray are eligible for INDIVIDUAL funding from Jumpstart, which is not the case and we deeply regret this was not communicated effectively and misunderstood. While Jumpstart will continue to support individual children in financial need, we have only broadened our criteria as all children ages (4-18) are eligible for CDP funding at this time to sustain the long term rebuilding of the community.
If this misunderstanding was promoted by your organization, Jumpstart asks that you please help us get the right message out to the community. Our individual child support will still be based on financial need. We have temporarily closed the Individual child submission ability for the Fort McMurray Chapter in order to clear all current applications, and to ensure we can support some of your important community development programs. Please encourage parents inquiring about individual funding to contact 1-844-YES-PLAY.
For those of you interested in securing funds for CDP’s, please contact me as soon as possible.
Thank you for your patience with Jumpstart in clarifying the current end of year 2016 CDP Plan and your amazing efforts to help the kids in Fort McMurray during the rebuilding of your community. If the miscommunication has caused you or your organization any stress…we deeply apologize and are extremely grateful for your help to communicate the correct message to the community.

Information about WBHL Evaluations
Hello and welcome to the 2016/17 Wood Buffalo House League hockey season.Important changes to evaluations for WBHL for the upcoming season.Purpose: to provide fair and bias-free evaluation of all players to best determine Tier placement. Methodology: factoring individual skills and actual game play, determined over several ice times under the observation of various evaluators to best determine Tier placement.
In an effort to improve our evaluation process for the house league teams we are undertaking a new evaluation process for the upcoming season for all levels but initiation.
At the novice level, we will be implementing two technical skating ice times and scrimmages.
For the Atom and above level, it will be one technical skate and scrimmages.Of note: The teams during the evaluation process will not be consistant.
You will have to be extremely diligent in checking emails to identifiy when your child will play. There will be circumstances where it may be possible that your child could play 2 games in one day or 2 games in a 24 hour period. We will try and make sure these are not the norm but hopefully minimized.
With everything that is new, there will be some growing pains and some mix ups. Please be patient with your directors and volunteers as we work through this at an attempt to make the process better.
If you have other ideas that would make our system better I would welcome your feedback. I would also welcome your thoughts before, during, and after the evaluations as to how you think our changes went. You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks and I look forward to a busy and exciting 2016/17 season.
