GFAHA AMERICANS

April 24, 2015

The Great Falls Amateur Hockey Association annual meeting will be on May 12th at 6:30 pm at the Crystal Inn in the Conference Room

 

The annual meeting is the only time the GFAHA Bylaws can be changed. The links to the current by-laws and policy manual are now available to view, or can be found under the "Policies" tab found in the left column of this webpage. If you identify anything that you feel needs to be changed please bring your thoughts to the meeting and present them.

 

The annual meeting is also when elections are made for open board positions. The following positions are open:

·         Vice President

·         Secretary

·         2 High school Reps

·         1 Bantam Rep

·         2 Squirt Reps

·         2 Mite Reps

·         1 Learn to Play Hockey (LTPH) Rep

 

If you are interested in running for any of these positions please email me (paulawalker@benefis.org) if you would like your name on the ballot by no later than May 10th. The board meets the second Tuesday of every month.  Being a member of the board is your way of making decisions that will benefit all of Youth Hockey. We have all visited other rinks throughout the state and have talked to parents in the other cities and have learned how they run their organizations. You may have even thought to yourself “I wish our association would do that”. Here is your opportunity to help make changes and better our organization.

 

Finally, there will be 2 drawings for ½ registration for the 2015-2016 season. All you have to do is attend the annual meeting and your name will be entered.

 

If you would like any more information on any of the open positions please feel free to email me or call me (403-1942) and I would be happy to talk to you. I look forward to seeing all of you on May 12th!

ATTN: PLAYERS-COACHES-PARENTS: HECC HELMET RULE CHANGE!

    Some new changes have been made by USA Hockey regaarding helmets and helmet certification. ALL helmets used on the ice during USAH sanctioned events must be in good working order and  HECC certified. Each certified helmet must also have a current certification sticker affixed in plain view to the back of the helmet. Each sticker will have and expiration date on them. Helmets with expired stickers will not be allowed on the ice. This includes all USA Hockey members--player helmets, referee helmets, and goalie helmets as well. Please check your equipment prior to the season starting to make sure you are in compliance with the new change. Below is an excerpt from the new rules and regulations book and photos of the HECC stickers that should be located on each helmet.

 

  "... (c) It is mandatory that all players (except Adults) wear a HECC approved helmet (including ear protection) with chin strap properly fastened.

       *(Note) HECC certification includes an expiration date on the sticker and a helmet that has an expiration date that hasexpired is no longer considered certified. The player may notwear a helmet that does not have a valid and current certification sticker. Players in the Adult classification must wear a hockey helmet (including non-HECC approved) with chin strapproperly fastened. "
