as you know, there are three Bantam A girls teams for the 2013-14 season out of the Zone 2/Mid-Isle Wildcats area. On Wednesday, the majority of players were evaluated and ranked by the three head coaches (Lowell Stevenson, Jason Darrach, Dougie Leclair), the players were then divided into three equal teams, based on the ratings assigned by coaches.
The first priority was to attempt to balance the skill level on the teams. Many requests for were made to pair/group players for travel, friendship, etc. Each of these requests were considered and where possible, accommodations were made. Not every request made was fulfilled and I would ask that you please consider the amount of time and effort made by volunteers to provide a) a place for everyone to play, b) equal teams across the zone with c) a reasonable geographic traveling distance.
We are actively seeking a goaltender for TEAM 2- Southside as we found out yesterday morning that one of our goaltenders will not be playing. Again, we ask for your patience while we explore options.
The table below contains the coaches name(s), available game and practice time information, and player lists. The team lists are final and requests to change teams will not be considered. Thank you in advance for your understanding of this important point.
Please be advised that the next ice time for both Team 1- North River and Team 2- Southside is Saturday, October 19 @ 1:50 pm.
Rebecca Smith, currently injured and unsure when she will be able to play. If able to return, Rebecca will be evaluated and placed on either Team 1 or 2, dependent on the strength of the teams.

October 15, 2013 Bantam Girls Team Selection
We are making progress on the process for making our Bantam Girls team selection.
As most of you are aware, NRMHA will be joining forces with Rustico and Southside to ice 2 teams for this 2013-14 season. Across the zone (K'town, Rustico, Summerside, Southside, North River) there are currently 42 skaters and 2 goaltenders, with a possible 3rd goaltender. Our primary goal is to divide the teams as equally as possible.
3 Teams will be iced out of this total, broken down as follows : Teams 1 & 2 North River (18 +2), Rustico (4) + Southside (7) = 29 + 2
Team 3 Summerside (8) + Kensington (1) + Southside (6)= 15 + ? (possibly 1 from K'town)
In order to facilitate the equal division of the teams, the 3 coaches involved are going to rank the players. This will occur this Wednesday, October 16th @ 8:40 pm for the Rustico and North River players. This is a scheduled conditioning time but in the interest of moving the process forward we are asking that all players attend. PLEASE RESPOND TO THIS EMAIL TO LET ME KNOW IF YOU WILL BE AT THE RINK.
fyi - Players from Southside/Summerside/Ktown players will be ranked in Borden on Wednesday night as well.
Also, Many of you have made requests to be paired with another specific player and we will be considering these requests in the team selection process.
