SLMHA is proud to announce the Instructors for our inaugural Skills Development Sessions. Again, in order to increase the skill level and competitiveness of the overall membership these sessions in association with several Pro Hockey Instructors are being offered to our membership at a significant cost savings (over 75% off the current per session cost). For more information on the Instructors chosen for the 2014/15 season and/or to read their Bio's please click here.
Again, if your son or daughter is trying out for and OMHA Team you will pay $30.00 for the Tryout and an additional $70.00 for the Skills Program (October through January - these are additional ice times). If your child does not make the OMHA team they are trying out for they will be automatically enrolled into the Three Counties Skills Program (Same Instructors). For those not trying out for an OMHA team you have the ability to take adavantage of this programming for $50.00. (sign up for these sessions to be announced at a later date).
Thanks for being a part of Thunder Hockey, participating in our THUNDER DAY (Sat. Aug 23rd - Fenelon Arena) and Good Luck this weekend to those coming out for Tryouts!

OMHA has a cost of $12 attached to this on-line course. SLMHA will be crediting each family registration for the 2014/15 season with $5 to assist with the cost of this mandatory requirement.
Please ensure when you sign up for the course you include all of your children within your family that are registered with OMHA or will be registering with OMHA. There is a drop down box to select our organization….it reads “Sturgeon Lake MHA”. If you don't click this one or select the wrong organization we will not find you in the system upon registration and your child will not be able to play until OMHA has this information.
Should you have any questions please feel free to email Leah Rea at
or speak with her at the arena.
From the OMHA website: Effective August 31, 2014, in addition to Team Officials, the OMHA will require all On-ice Volunteers, On-Ice Officials and Parents to take the appropriate ‘Respect’ education.
