Year End FUN TOURNAMENT SUNDAY April 14 from 8 – 5 at Walter Baker A

Posted: March 23, 2013 in Uncategorized

This  day is a memorial FUN DAY  tournament for David MacDonald and an excellent  an opportunity to meet as a team to wrap up the season

I will pick up all the NMHA trophies and will bring them to the tournament.

The hope is that teams will find time during the day to arrange a team meal at somewhere like Broadways to share some food and give out their team’s trophies.

This sis a fun tournament where every team will play four  27 minute games over the course of the day.

EVERY player will get a medal and in addition each coach will be given a “most sportsmanlike” medal to award after  each game.

The player chosen each game should be that player that shows the most team spirit and sense of fun during the game.. IT IS NOT  the most valuable player award.

The first two game schedule is as follows:

First game : 27 minute time slot – 3 for warm up 24 for the game  (3 minute shifts)
8:00 – 8:27  Penguins vs Boston
8:28 – 8:55  Canadiens vs White Zombies
8:55 – 9:22  Wild  vs  Flames
9:22 – 9:50  Mighty Blue Sharks (Vancouver)  vs Dark Blue Sharks
Winning teams become in Side A and  Losing teams in that first game  become Side B
After this first game all the winning teams will be in placed in one group of 4 and the losing teams will be placed in another group of 4.
10:00 winner of first game vs winner of second game.
10:28  loser of first game vs loser of second game
10:55 winner of third game vs winner of fourth game
11:22  loser of third game vs loser of fourth game

Teams will continue to  play the other teams in their group (2 more games) and the day will wrap up with a game between the top two teams in each group for the side A and side B championship.

I can not tell you when your  games will be  is until after that first sorting game.

I will try to never have back to back games. This  will allow you to make it out to have a moment with your team. This may happen in the very last time slot before our “championship games”.

A few  important points:

The score board will be on and in keeping with NMHA policy the scores will not be shown is the goal difference is over 5.

There will be winners in each game – losing a game is not anything to be upset about. Next yea,r in October  almost  all the Timbits will be in Novice with a similar recording of  scores.

The emphasis on the day will be in participation and good sportsmanship… and making sure everyone gets a medal!

Please take a minute to read my final blog with your Timbit…. it is meant for both you as parents and them as players.  I will post it after our last practice next Saturday.
