Earlier this season, we announced new awards to acknowledge teams, coaches and players for showing and embracing the Rec Hockey philosophy of sportsmanship and fair play. I am very pleased to announce the results of the Team Sportsmanship Award and the ATB Financial Individual Sportsmanship Awards:

ATB Individual Sportsmanship Award
Along with the team award, RHC announced an individual sportsmanship award to be presented to all players who finished the regular season with zero penalties. ATB Financial has sponsored this award and has provided an extremely generous set of prizes to the recipients. This year, we will be awarding over 150 players with the ATB Financial Individual Sportsmanship Award which will be handed out during the Year End Tournament. Specifically there are 52 Peewee, 53 Bantam, 48 Midget and 33 Junior players who will receive this award. The names are too numerous to list here, but the RHC board wants to thanks these individuals for their accomplishment.
In the spirit of these awards, I want to thank the players, coaches and parents for a great season and wish them well for the ATB Year End Tournament. With respect to the YET, please be mindful of the sportsmanship and conduct that is an integral part of Rec Hockey. Despite a very good season, we have had a few serious incidents including parents’ conduct towards opposing players, verbal insults directed towards female players and altercations in the post-game handshake. Let’s enjoy the remainder of the season and work together to ensure a fun Year End Tournament for all.
Attention ALL RHC players: as we approach the conclusion of this successful season, a friendly reminder that your team jersey needs to be returned to your coach at the completion of the final game of the YET (March 8 for Pee Wee and March 15 for everyone else). If you plan to be absent from this final game, kindly launder, dry, fold, and return your jersey to your coach on or before this date. Spare Goalies: please return your jerseys to the coach of YOUR final game. Your co-operation is greatly appreciated. Thank you.
Coaches: please see important information and instructions regarding Equipment Return under the EQUIPMENT tab. Thank you.
