Hespeler Minor Hockey's New Logo and more.


Hello Shamrocks,

As we enjoy what i hope is a great summer filled with sun and fun, I would like to share with you what the past and new executive has achieved over the past 12 months and what to look forward to in 2015-16. 

We are very excited to announce that Hespeler Minor Hockey will be transitioning to new branding, including a new primary logo and secondary logo. This will be a gradual transition that will occur over the next 2 to 3 seasons. We will begin with new jersey’s for our Local League teams and eventually we will have all travel teams transitioned to the new look as we replenish our stock of jersey’s. During this time you will begin to see the new logo introduced in our apparel and digital media.

This is a significant change for Hespeler Minor Hockey. The costs for the transition lay mostly with procuring over 1000 new jersey’s. This cost will be offset through some exciting new fundraising events that we will be conducting and by transitioning to new jersey’s as existing jersey’s reach their end of life.

The biggest fundraising effort we will be launching this year will be our first Hockey day in Hespeler that will be part of the annual Hespeler Harvest Fest that is put on by the Hespeler Village Neighborhood Association.

Hockey Day in Hespeler is on September 19th and we need every association members help…without you, the board will not be able to make this event a success.  This will be a major fundraiser which will consist of the Ford Drive Event, a 3 on 3 ball hockey tournament and a BBQ, eWaste Depot and other fun. 

More information will follow over the next few weeks.  You can sign up and find more information at www.hmha.ca/3on3.  We will also be having a Pizza Day in Hespeler on September 9th in partnership with New Orleans’s pizza. We will be providing more information on this fun and tasty event in the weeks to come. 

Hespeler Minor Hockey would love to hear from any businesses in Hespeler that would be interested in partnering with us to help fund-raise for new jersey’s. Please contact Shannon Hobson,Sponsorship & Fundraising Director at [email protected] 

 

As we announce these exciting new logo's and new fundraising events we should also reflect on our accomplishments last season. 

HMHA partnered with McDonald’s to launch the AtoMc program. The program consists of outfitting our Atom Local League players with socks, jerseys, toque’s and other fun stuff. 

 

Back in May of last year, the board approved a fundraising event to help support Jacob Hespeler High School’s Hatterstrong campaign whereas the community was invited to sign custom made banner for a donation.  We also unanimously approved a request from our Midget team to wear and sell a custom jersey in support of Hatterstrong.  All toll with the assistance of an anonymous contributor, over $5000.00 was raised.

The introduction of our Atom, Peewee and Bantam house league teams into the Grand River Local was a huge success and was well received by our players, parents and coaches.  I can tell you that after speaking with several of the Grand River Local League executive this past weekend, they were very happy with our decision to join the league. The scoreboard may have been tilted from time to time but the opportunity to further development in a team environment, creating friendships and being able to say with pride that “I’m a Hespeler Shamrock” far out ways the score of any game.  Look forward to the introduction of Midget this coming season.

For the second consecutive year, Hespeler hosted a Tri-County event which historically has been a Midget All-Star Game but those that represent the 21 centres of the TCMHL voted on a motion to introduce Tykefest.  Players from each centre were matched up in groups of 3 from other centres and they played a game.  Food and drink were provided after their game.

As mentioned at our year end banquets and the AGM, the executive put in hundreds of hours to revise the Constitution and Bylaws along with the Rules of Operations.  These changes align us as an organization with the ever changing landscape of hockey while keeping in mind Hockey Canada, OMHA and Tri-County requirements.  This will continue to be an ongoing process with updates or changes to be made as needed.

We also invited several vendors to present the board with team and spirit wear options for the upcoming season.  After great presentations and lengthy deliberation, we are excited with what Kyle’s Krease will be offering the membership this year. Our new logo will be showcased on team track suits, bags, pant shells and helmets. We will begin to transition jersey replacements starting with our local league teams this coming season and hope to have entire associations converted over the next 2 seasons.  

Lastly, Aug 30th HMHA will be hosting a Midget A info session from 7 to 8:30pm, We are inviting all midget aged players , both house league and rep (98-2000) , more info to follow. 

From the entire executive, have a fun and safe summer and we’ll see you at the rink real soon!

Best Regards,

John Murray
