Registration for RETURNING players is open! Make sure your register before the deadline of June 30, 2018 to guarantee your spot on a team and avoid any late registration fees. For more information or to register, please visit our website.

LMHA would like to send a big shout out to Ed Adams and wish him much success with his retirement! Ed has given countless hours to LMHA, facilitating our Referee program as our Referee-on-Chief. Thank you for everything Ed! With Ed’s departure, LMHA is now accepting applications for our new Referee-in-Chief. The successful candidate will be responsible for the direction, development and management of officials within LMHA. A description of a detailed “Duties and Responsibilities” of the position is available on our officials webpage.

LMHA is currently accepting applications for Rep Team (A2-A4) and our C-Division and Initiation Division Teams. Thank you to the many of you that have applied! If you haven’t submitted your application yet, please do so soon! We will begin interviews for all positions through-out July and August in anticipation of having all coaches in place prior to any player stepping on the ice. For more information on Coaching in Langley or to apply, visit our website.

LMHA’s Annual General Meeting is set for June 14, 2018 @ 7pm. It will be held at the Township of Langley Civic Facility and doors will open for registration at 6:30pm. Come out and hear our year in review and learn what is in store for next season. We do ask that you RSVP so that we can be prepared. For more information on the AGM agenda, please visit our website.

Joining the Executive is a rewarding experience. Without the countless hours these volunteers contribute, LMHA could not have over 1100 players on the ice playing hockey. We encourage you, if you are interested, to put your name forward. On our AGM webpage, there is a list of positions and LMHA is looking to fill 8 spots for the coming season. Please note that at the AGM, it is the memberships role to vote in the number of Directors needed to complete the 15 Voting Positions. Specific Positions (i.e. Division Managers) are not voted on. This is the role of the new executive at the first meeting following the AGM. Another note, with the changes to the BC Societies Act, nominations from the floor will no longer be able to be accepted. Please submit your name to be added to the Slate of Candidates for nomination by June 7, 2018.

LMHA is excited to announce that we are cutting down on your paperwork at the start of the season and moving to ePact! ePACT is an easy-to-use, safe and secure online system that can be used by any organization that needs emergency information to support kids, adults and communities day to day and in a crisis. It is an emergency network that will help us move our medical forms and waivers online, saving tons of time and hassle for everyone involved and saving a few trees in the process. The security is banking level and the system has been approved by Hockey Canada for use since 2013. Stay tuned for more information!
