Our apologies for the delay, we now have all team lists in and the schedule finalised, a copy is attached.

If you go to this link

You will see we are still short officials.

We have tried to accommodate all the parents officiating to allow them to spectate their own skater’s games, and we have had a lot of parents let us know they can officiate but they have not registered.

If you are able, or know anyone able, to fill in any of the missing shifts, please let us know asap and we will update the crew lists.

Also, if we have rostered you in the wrong shift/position, please let us know.

Thank you so much for volunteering your time to allow these junior skaters to participate in the sport they love.
