Message from the President
Submitted By webmaster on Thursday, May 25, 2017
Well, another year of Cambridge Minor Hockey has come and gone and what a great year it was. As always our House-League program provided a safe and fun environment for our kids to play hockey and wrapped up with a very successful 20th Annual Day of Champions. Great job to all the volunteers who make it possible every week to put this program on. 

On our Representative/Travel side we continue to see success from our development program and the dedication of a very good group of coaches and bench staff. All this work has translated to success on the ice with a number of our teams improving from the previous year and some going as far as the OHF Championships. We look forward to what future years will bring.
As we move from closing down one year and starting on to the next I would like to thank our Board for the tireless work they do to ensure that hockey in Cambridge is alive and well. You can’t imagine the hours these members sacrifice so that our program runs smoothly and I am very proud to work alongside them. Thanks to those Board members who have served their time and now move on to other projects. Your dedication and willingness to help is greatly appreciated. To our new members, thank you for stepping forward into some very big shoes. We look forward to the ideas you bring to continually improve our association.
In closing we would like to ask a favour from you our members and anyone else who supports minor hockey in the city. Our city staff are in the process of preparing a recommendation for Council on the proposed Multiplex. At a recent meeting between city staff and local ice user groups it was made very clear by all that if the City is intent on repurposing 3 ice surfaces, which it needs to do, the City also needs to replace them with 4. It was also agreed that the best way for that to happen was to move forward with the 4 pads at the Conestoga site. If you agree with this position, we at CMHA ask that you let the City know it. So far all they are hearing from is the vocal minority who have nothing to do with ice usage in Cambridge. Now is the time to speak up and have your voice heard, so that our children can play the game we love in buildings we as citizens can be proud of.
Have a great summer and see you in the fall.
 
John Morton, President
