Message from Graham Laursen, Recreational Hockey Director, October 9, 2020
Welcome to the start of the 2020-2021 season. Recreational evaluations are complete and all teams have now been rostered. I am confident in the objective results TeamGenius generated. Team formation was built off these results. PGMHA will continue to monitor the teams as our goal is have equal teams and fair play throughout all recreational divisions. Due to cohorts, we have had to limit our numbers on teams and in divisions and cannot move any players outside of their cohort until the next 2 week break (Christmas). These player movements will not occur from parent requests, they will be based on game evaluations and coach feedback.
I would like to thank all the volunteers for their efforts during evaluations and in our condensed and chaotic start to the 2020-2021 due to Covid-19 as it hasn't been easy to navigate these continuously changing regulations.
