Week of November 1st

Below is a look at the week ahead….

Schedule this week                        

Thursday, Nov 5th            7:30pm                 PRACTICE             @Crapaud

Friday, Nov 6th                   7:40pm                 GAME                   vs Pownal            @APM  (Gate:  Taylor // 50/50: LaPorte // Rink Monitor: Cobb)

Saturday, Nov 7th            7:30pm                 Game                    vs Western         @Alberton

Practices:

  • Thursday night - Crapaud   7:30pm – 9:00pm   (this practice time is now confirmed for the season; exception when we play a game that night).  

(Please note:  Crapaud does not allow any spectators in their arena at the present time)

Saturday Night Game in Western

Please be aware that the Western team along with Hockey PEI will be doing a special tribute to Ethan Reilly and Alex Hutchinson at their season opener on Saturday, November 7th.    The Western Team have asked that on Saturday night, if our spectator team number could be limited to 30 persons (since they wish to invite more local fans from the Reilly and Hutchinson families).   Since we are usually permitted 2 guests per player, can I kindly ask parents for 9 volunteers to not attend the Saturday game ( I already have one volunteer confirmed).   Please email or text if you are willing to not attend ….once I have the 9, I will send an email. 

 

In recognition of the Reilly and Hutchinson families, the U18 Matrix team wishes to make a monetary donation to the families at this game that would be presented that evening.  If anyone wishes to make a monetary contribution to the Reilly/Hutchinson families, please pass along any donation you wish at the Friday night game at the APM …we will have a Donation Box at our game (we opted for a donation box in lieu of the 50/50 proceeds since the sales are limited due to our restricted numbers).  

Looking for few Volunteers

  • 50/50 & Gate Coordinator – please let me know if you can take this volunteer role on
  • Fundraising …..if someone is interested in running a team fundraiser please feel free to share it/we would be looking for a person to head any of these activities up.  We do need to make the Matrix Board aware of any fundraising activities.

Music:

We do have a music person arranged for the season ….this is a team paid position (but they do get counted in our numbers of our cohort).   

COVID Reminders for the APM

  • You may have noticed on Friday, the APM’s operational plan is slightly different than some of our other rinks we will be using
  • It is possible some of these items will change (there are certainly a few hiccups we noted on Friday …so hopefully it can go smoother in future games)
    • Due to the additional activities regarding tracking our persons in the building/monitoring traffic…it is suggested to have an additional person assigned along with the Team COVID Coordinator to do these tasks.  So we will add a rotational role of a Rink Monitor to each home game as well.     
    • The players are permitted only 30 minutes before the game time;  at the APM, players can only enter at 7:00pm.  The on ice warm-up starts at 7:30pm at the APM with the game time starts immediately after at 7:40pm.     
    • The Home Team spectators (50 person cohort) will be able to enter the APM at 7:30pm, sign in on the contact sheet and then go to the HOME Tea

Exhibition Games

Some reminders about the upcoming exhibiton games. 

Exhibition Games are:

  • Friday, October 16th at 7:30pm at APM Centre - players are to arrive no more than 30 minutes before ice time. 
  • Saturday, October 17th at 3:10pm at CARI - players are to arrive no more than 15 minutes before ice time. 
At this time, we just wanted to advise that there are still no parents allowed to attend games at APM centre or CARI.  Guidelines on spectators are set by each rink through discussions with Hockey PEI. 

We understand that as parents, not being able to be in the rink is frustrating. We thank you again for your patience and trust. We hope to see you all in the rink soon!

TryOut Update

First of all we would like to thank all players for a great tryout process. We have seen some major improvement as the process went on, so these decisions were hard and required a lot of conversations between coaches and evaluators. We wish everyone the best this season!


The coaches ask the following players to please attend the next ice time at APM centre on Sunday, October 11th at 6:10 pm.  We ask all players, even if on injured list, to attend Sunday evening to hear the final tryout process and expectations. Anyone who can’t attend Sunday's ice time is ask to contact the coach directly.
