SURREY MINOR BALL
HOCKEY ASSOCIATIONBall Hockey - All it takes is all you've got!
Welcome to the 2013 Surrey Minor Ball Hockey Season. As always I want to welcome all of you, both new and returning families. On behalf of the executive I would like to encourage you to have a wonderful season.
This year promises to be one of the largest and most action packed seasons yet. In addition to adding more practices and games to our regular season we are happy to have been able to add additional players, which means more Surrey youth are getting exposure to one of Canada's greatest past times....ball hockey.
We will be hosting the 3rd Annual SMBHA Awards banquet in June and will be sending 5 teams to Medicine Hat, Alberta to play in the Western Cup Challenge Tournament in July. And don't be surprised if you see some familiar names and faces participating for the BC National team playing in Oakville, Ontario this summer at the Canadian Ball Hockey Association Junior Nationals.
Last season I was pleased to announce that we had our very own trophy case (located at Cloverdale Arena) and this season I am happy to be able to say that we will be having SMBHA banners hung at our Surrey Arenas commemorating over 20 years of ball hockey.
See you at the rink!!!
Kim Kinakin - president of SMBHA
