Hockey Season comes to a close for 2016-2017
Submitted By MMHA Admin on Thursday, March 30, 2017
MMHA hockey season is drawing to a close.

The Huronia Steel Sales Novice Rep team captured the Georgian Bay Novice Championship last night in Wasaga. Great job boys!

The Steve's Bobcat Midget Local League team has a tournament this weekend and we wish them well!




Several of our MMHA midget players have hung up their skates and ended their Midland Minor hockey career. Midget Hockey are the final 3 years in minor hockey.  Each and every year a player plays their final minor hockey game, which when you think about it - some players started in Tyke and have played for 12-13 years! Amazing!

It also means, that a parent or parents/grandparents will no longer be getting up early, driving them to practices, games, tournaments, etc.

This year we will also say goodbye to several executive members who have logged quite a few hours organizing and administering MMHA. We would not have an organization without the Executive. Thank You!



So this is for you and all our MMHA parents - how quickly that time goes by and the memories of some of our hockey game days.



A Hockey Mom/Dad Prayer:

May I find the best route to the hockey arena in rush hour traffic. May there not be any road closures, beginner drivers or other stressed out hockey parents in my path….

May The Boy?GIRL have remembered all his/her equipment. May I hold my incredulous yell of frustration back when we’re running late and he/she tells me that he MIGHT have left his/her hockey gloves on the floor back home.

May I find the grace not to scream at an opposing player who has just elbowed my son/daughter in the head.

May I find a spot in the arena that is actually under a working heater.

May I not get sick of Tim Horton’s coffee, bagels, sandwiches and Timbits in the next eight months.

May I try, for once, to just enjoy the game and not get stressed out and embarrass my son/daughter by screaming in the third period “SKATE!!!!!!!”

May I have the right words to comfort and encourage him/her when he has a bad game and the exuberance to celebrate with him/her when he/she has a good one.

May I remember that he loves this freezing, time-consuming, money-sucking sport and that he/she is a thing of beauty when he/she shoots the puck.

And, most of all, may I remember that his/her childhood is passing all too quickly and that, one day, I will actually miss the all the time we spent in the van hustling back and forth between arenas. One day I will wish for that time back …….so let me hold it in my memory as long as I can because it is flying away from me, faster than my son /daughter on hockey skates.


So to all the players and parents/grandparents moving on, MMHA wishes you all the best and thanks you for being a part of our organization!   GO Cents GO!
