News and Announcements
In our continuing effort to enhance player safety, PMAHA will use ePACT again for the 2016/17 season! As a reminder, ePACT is a highly secure network that allows us to efficiently collect emergency information online and communicate in an emergency.
Here’s how it works:
• Each player’s family will receive an email invitation to use ePACT.
• Returning players: Log in to your existing ePACT account for an extremely quick process! The information you entered last year will pre-populate, and you will have a chance to add or edit details.
• Families new to ePACT: Accept this invite and create an account.
• Enter/confirm your child’s information, then securely share this information with PMAHA providing coaches/managers access to this information.
• You can update ePACT anytime during the season, and we will automatically be alerted (e.g. add a new cell phone or new emergency contact, and we receive that update).
Rest assured that you always own your account and the information in it, so ePACT will never share or access this information without your consent. Plus, ePACT maintains the same levels of security as online banking, and limits access only to the administrators we assign for enhanced privacy.
Congratulations and good luck to Trevor Nolan on your selection to Hockey Canada’s Officiating Program of Excellence (http://www.odharefs.com/programs/excellence.html). The OPOE (Officiating Program of Excellence) is a camp held to identify and instruct BC Hockey officials that show potential placement or promotion within the Above Minor Program. BC Hockey High Performance officials are the elite officials within our organization. They have the opportunity to be selected for regional and national events such as the BC Winter Games, Canada Winter Games and the World Under 17 Hockey Challenge.
Port Moody Amateur Hockey Association will be ringing in the new 2016-2017 season with our first tournament. Our Bantam A1 and Bantam A2 boys will need your support so be sure to come down to Port Moody Arena on October 7-10 to grab a smokie from our grill, try your luck with our many prize draws and take in some great hockey. From the parents and players of the Bantam rep teams, and the PMAHA executive, we will look forward to seeing you there!
Kickoff was yesterday with special guests Kirk McLean and Fin of the Vancouver Canucks. Come down to the rink for the next few Mondays and see our kids enjoying the sport for the first time. Or check out our album with pictures of opening day courtesy of the Canucks media staff.
The Port Moody Amateur Hockey Association (PMAHA) has been selected to host one of the Vancouver Canucks Learn2Play hockey programs. The program is for first year kids with an emphasis on fun. Operated under the NHL/NHLPA Learn2Play guidelines with support from provincial minor hockey associations, FREE equipment will be distributed to selected young athletes between the ages of 4 to 6 (Hockey 1 players).
The program allows kids to easily try hockey, with qualified instructors and Hockey Canada approved lesson plans. The Vancouver Canucks Learn 2 Play program includes enrollment for a six (6) week on-ice curriculum and head-to-toe equipment that each child can keep. This pilot program is a great introductory point for minor hockey kids to try hockey and learn the basics of the game.
