Dear Fern Hockey Families,
My name is Vera Ciric. Many of you know me as the “front line” in the main office at Fern. Together with Miya Oda, the French Immersion Kindergarten teacher, and Diego Morettin, one of our grade 8 fathers; we will be heading the Senior Hockey Team for 2014-2015 season.
Our season kicks off on Wednesday, January 28th, 2015. We are scheduled to play five games which take place in the morning at three different arenas (George Bell, North Toronto and Ted Reeve Bub). We will be asking our families to help us carpool the children from school to the arena and back to the school after the games and (possible practices).
Games are early in the morning beginning at 8:00 am; therefore we ask that players arrive at the arena no later than 7:15am in order to get dressed and ready to play. We expect everyone to be ready to step onto the ice at 8:00 am. Students must wait for a school representative (Miya, or Vera) before stepping onto the ice. All students must have a signed permission form in order to join the Fern Falcons team. Verbal consent is not allowed.
This season, our games are being held at different venues. We are asking parents to help us out as volunteer drivers. It will, unfortunately, not be feasible to have students travel by public transit. If we do not have enough volunteer drivers to carpool our students from school to the arenas and then back to the school afterwards, we will have to forfeit our season.
Practices, unfortunately, this year will no longer take place at the Mastercard Arena. We are however, working on getting some practice time closer to home, at McCormick’s Arena.
There is a $30.00 deposit for the Fern hockey jerseys. At the end of the season, we will ask for all jerseys to be washed and returned. You will receive your $30.00 deposit upon return.
Members of the team are well aware of our expectations in terms of school attendance, practices and school work.
Wishing everyone a great hockey season!
Vera and Miya
