Important House 2016-2017 Season Information

As summer winds down and everyone gets ready to go back to school ... this weekend, hockey season will be underway! 

Thank you for bringing your player out to Conditioning and Evaluation Skate times over the last few weeks.  We are pleased with the great turnout of skaters who participated.  Add in the jersey sizing that has occurred, and we are strongly reminded that hockey season really does start soon!

August Evaluation Skates

All of the KVHA House League Evaluation Skate times have occurred.  We trust that you felt the process ran smoothly.  The purpose of the Evaluation Skates and Puckmasters Coaches is to provide the Head Coaches with a consistent and objective score on all players, so they are able to draft balanced teams.  Balanced teams provide the best chance of a positive experience for everyone. 
Likely you recognized Steve and Kyle from Puckmasters in Wixom, who attended all of the Evaluation Skates for the Mite, Squirt, Pee Wee, and the Bantam Divisions. They used consistent and objective criteria for evaluating each player in preparation for the Draft process later this month.  We continue to have positive feedback about their presence, thank our members and players for their patience during the Evaluation Skates, and look forward to using the Puckmasters work product as we move into, and through the Draft process.    

Both Steve and Kyle made a point to compliment the level of players at all the Evaluation Division skates this year. They noted overall improvement of skill and work ethic at each skate.  Great job to the KVHA players!

Many Coaches and KVHA Representatives field concerns and requests by parents who wish to have their player on a certain team, with certain players, or with a certain coach.  We are all sensitive to such positions, but KVHA is bound by USA Hockey, and MAHA mandates that explicitly prohibit pre-drafting of teams.  KVHA cannot tell Coaches who they may or may not draft.

Jersey Sizing

KVHA will order jerseys for House players after the Draft process.  Jerseys are projected to arrive in or around mid-October.  If you are a House player who has not been sized for a season jersey and socks, please promptly contact the office.  It is best to send an e-mail to office@kvhockey.org this time of season, as it will take longer to respond to a voice mail.  Jersey orders placed after the initial order in late August will be delayed.  Little Rebels will receive Tim Horton’s jerseys and do not require jersey sizing. 

Team Draft

With our division coaches interviewed, selected, and approved by the KVHA Board, the Hockey Director and House Director held the Team Draft night on Thursday, August 25th.  Teams did not form until the draft, and the draft was not open to anyone other than the Head Coaches, who are drafting a particularly scheduled division.  Per Michigan Amateur Hockey Association (MAHA) Rules, each coach may protect ONE player and that one player may or may not be the coach's child.  At the end of each division draft, each team list is reviewed by KVHA’s MAHA Representative for the correct ratio of first and second year players, for the correct number of out-of-district players, and for an average rating of all the team's players, even with all the other teams in the division.  This process is required and helps assure a competitive House season.  By now, your should have heard from your Head Coach, and be sure to check your email and spam folders to make sure you didn't miss the communication. Once you hear from your Head Coach, then please offer your assistance as an Assistant Coach or Manager. Nothing at KVHA runs without willing volunteers.

Team Schedules

Teams will begin taking their ice time this weekend, Friday, September 2nd-Sunday, September 4th as part of the 2016-2017 season.  No team will have ice time on Labor Day, Monday, September 5th.  You will be notified by your Head Coach, after the Draft, of your team and of your skate times. 

Additional Season Events

Many have asked if KVHA will be offering any training opportunities to members at an affordable cost.  In the past, we have had various outfits run clinics throughout the season. We do not have any clinics scheduled at this time, but ask that you email hockeydirector@kvhockey.org with your interest level and we will use that information for programming.

Goalie Skills Clinics ran three times this summer and we hope to continue periodically throughout the season with additional opportunities to develop our existing goalies and to give a jump start to those who would like to explore becoming a goalie.

KVHA will hold two Try Hockey For Free days this season and they are sponsored in part by USA Hockey.  Keep an eye out for information regarding these events so you can tell your friends, family, and neighbors about the fun opportunity to give hockey a try. As well, we will be in need of volunteers to make it a fun event for all the new faces we hope to see.

2016-2017 Ice Fees

While never wavering from the commitment to the integrity and quality of our program, KVHA continues to analyze and minimize the increased costs to play hockey. 

We remain proud to continue to provide our players and their families with a fun and memorable hockey experience.

The 2016-2017 Season Dues are as follows.

KVHA appreciates our members' willingness and ability to pay season ice fees by using a credit card through the use of the payment plan set up on the www.KVHAhockey.org website. This modality of payment keeps accounts current, which prevents the need for Coaches to enforce the undesirable rule of not allowing a player to participate, when ice fees remain unpaid.  KVHA does not accept personal or cashier's checks, or cash. 

You may pay the ice fees in one payment, or you may pay in six equal monthly installments.  Payment information is posted below.  Please click on the link below to set up your payment plan.

Enjoy the last days of summer and welcome to a new season of hockey....Hockey.....HOCKEY!
