It is with great pleasure that I would like to welcome all players, coaches, managers, parents, spectators, and officials to our 12th Annual Sweetheart Tournament. As the President of North River Minor Hockey Association, I am very proud to be part of hosting this hockey tournament. On behalf of our board of directors I am excited to be welcoming such a large number of female teams to compete in a weekend of competitive and action packed hockey. It makes our association very proud of the work of our volunteers over the past 12 years in building Atlantic Canada's "Premier Female Hockey Event".
This event also allows our association to showcase female hockey at all levels, and to promote the female game within our community, association and province. This weekend will see teams from all over the Maritimes coming together to compete and make new friends while participating in this wonderful game.
To host such a high quality tournament requires an enormous amount of volunteer effort. The efforts of our Sweetheart Committee are greatly appreciated by all members of our association. To all our volunteers work hard over the weekend, but take time to visit and discuss with our visitors and to make some new hockey friends.
I wish all participants, families and spectators, an enjoyable tournament and Good Luck in all your games over the weekend. We truly appreciate all teams including the Sweetheart Tournament as part of your hockey season. We look forward to hosting you for our 13th Annual Tournament in February of 2019.
President, North River Minor Hockey Association
