Congratulations to the Atom Black team for their tournament win in Havelock two weekends ago! (Sorry for the delayed post). The Atom's won 3 games straight defeating Colborne, Stirling and then Brighton to capture the “A” DivisionChampionship. Their incredible TEAM PLAY and goalie, Carter Chartier’s awesome moves in net, resulted in a 3 game shut-out. Way to go Thunder!!!
Congratulations to the Peewee OMHA Team for their recent Holiday Tournament Win in Lakefield. Your OMHA Peewee's went 3-0 on December 29th 2014 by beating Stirling, Lindsay and Ennismore to take the Tournament Win and Trophy!
SLMHA in conjunction with Dr. Ian Horseman of Bobcaygeon have established a Baseline Concussion Program for all players involved in contact hockey. The test is free (complimentary as per Dr. Horseman, too whom we thank) as a part of a community building initiative from his local Chiropractive/Neurology Practice (www.fixedbrain.com).
The respective teams will be contacted as per their test schedule.
Given the speed of current game this initiative is paramount in determining if a concussion has occurred and to what degree, regardless if it happened on or off ice. The Association is making this very passive test (simple questions and screening via an IPAD application) mandatory for all teams involved in contact. Please stay tuned for more information.
