Hello, Whalers families,

Thank you all for your patience. The first two sessions of U9 balancing will take place on Tuesday, October 4th, and Thursday, October 6th. Balancing will continue on October 15th and 16th. For this week Group A will play at 5pm and Group B will play at 6pm. The sessions are at RBC Centre. We will update which rink when we have confirmation.

You will find the list of groupings here... U9 Balancing Groups Oct 4 **NOTE Oct 6 ICE TIME IS CANCELLED**

Please remember to check in when your player arrives and they will be issued a balancing jersey. Jerseys will be collected at the end of each session.

We will need some help with check-in and with on ice and 2 Deep. If you are able to assist please fill out the Volunteer form here https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSeUol44XVCt1w7xhP2VTv-o1sp4A45cSSaKdyg8u6xDhJg7GQ/viewform?usp=sf_link 

Please note all on-ice and 2-Deep Volunteers require up-to-date Criminal Record Check (CRC) with Vulnerable Sector Check (VSC).

PLEASE NOTE: During balancing, parents are asked to watch from ice level and to leave the upstairs to evaluators. As well, please do not watch from the "benches" as it presents a safety hazard.

Again I want to thank all families for their patience and understanding and I commit to better communications from here on in.

Sincerely,

David MacKenzie

On behalf of the Dartmouth Whalers’ Board of Directors, I want to welcome all of our returning players and first-time Whalers families to the U9 2022/2023 season.

 

The last two years were tough, and it is hoped that this year will see us all return to a more normal season.

 

We are awaiting final ice times for U9 balancing sessions and will send ice times as soon as they are finalized.  We will need a lot of help during balancing, each group will need to be signed in and each player will be issued a numbered try-out jersey.  Jerseys will be collected after each ice time and will need to be washed.  I will be sending a volunteer signup list as soon as ice times are locked in.

 

I want to thank everyone who has already been helping out either on-ice, in the dressing rooms, or for sign-in.  Great hockey seasons can only happen with the assistance of volunteers like you. 

 

Many of you have already submitted your names for the role of coach and as on and off-ice helpers.  Thank you.  Coaching assignments will be determined once balancing has taken place.  You can read more about the background check requirements here: https://whalers.org/l/42/DWMHA/pages/1926 . 

 

Please watch your emails in the coming days for the balancing schedule and opportunities to help out.  You will also find U7 & U9 information on the Dartmouth Whalers’ website https://whalers.org/l/42/DWMHA/pages/4494/2022---2023-INFO---U7--U9-Balancing/.
