KDMHA ESSO Fun Days

July 16, 2015

It was great to see such a high interest level from these young skaters - the drive, determination and enthusiasm was awesome. They brought excellent listening skills, a desire to learn and they showed huge improvement over a very short period of time. It was an absolute treat for us to be on the ice with them and we wish them all the best in their future hockey endeavours.” Dave Holmes, KDMHA Coach Volunteer.

Hockey Canada in partnership with Esso Canada offers funding for Associations to offer an introduction to hockey at no cost to the female participant. The goal of the program is to allow female players to try hockey without having to commit to a season. KDMHA has hosted “Storm Surge” days in the past with the same purpose. Last spring the first Esso Fun Day was held followed by a five-session development program to those participants who were interested in continuing on at a very minimal cost.

This spring, Kemptville Storm Vice President, Sylvain Campeau applied for and was granted funding through Esso and Hockey Canada for a Six Week development program for new players. This allowed KDMHA to run the first 6 week Esso Fun Day program consisting of 5 on-ice sessions and 1 dry-land training session. We had an excellent turnout with 29 participants registered in the program ranging in age from 4 years to 15 years! KDMHA Coach Volunteer Dave Holmes coordinated the on-ice sessions with help from other volunteer Storm Coaches Lorne Langevin, Steve Alexander, Chris Dawson, Christine Houston, Pat McNeely and Scott Legault. Sessions consisted of group instruction based on age and ability and ended with scrimmages so players could get the full idea of what it’s like to play hockey. Kemptville Storm players volunteered their time to mentor the new players. Thank you to Hailey Alexander, Faith Alexander (G), Sam Benoit (G), Kaitlyn Dawson, Jillian Deck, Makaila Grue, Mackenzie Holmes, Joey Holmes, Emily Houston, Payton Langevin, Madeline Langevin and Paige Legault for sharing their love of the game.

The off-ice dryland training was organized by Daniel Preston, Grade 7 Teacher at North Grenville District Highschool, together with volunteers Madeline Langevin, Colleen McGuire and Ashley Mann. The purpose of the dry-land training is to show the girls the importance of physical fitness and fun!

Kemptville Storm is very fortunate to have such a wonderful group of coach volunteers and storm mentors for our membership.

Registration for new players will remain open until such time as teams reach capacity. If interested in registering for girls hockey for the upcoming season, please email Vanessa Grue, Storm Registrar at stormregistrar@kemptvillehockey.com
