BIG WEEKEND WITH ICE WOLVES

LAHA MEMBERS

As you know, we have the Junior team Ice Wolves this Sunday at the LA County Rink.  You also know the County gave us all the proceeds from the ticket sales.  All tickets were sold!!  Thank you all for buying your tickets.  I will send more tomorrow on the details for this event.

I am writing this now to give you some information on Friday night and all day Saturday's schedule and parking.  The Department of Energy put up barriers on both sides of the road and you cannot park there anymore.  We have 82 parking slots only.  Two of those are set aside for the on-ice officials.  We believe the best way to deal with this is to many of you carpool, drop off your player at the rink then drive back up to the HS parking lot and park cars then carpool back to the rink and hopefully there will be one parking place for you.  If not you may have to go back to the HS parking lot and walk down to the rink.  The County gave us all the ice time Friday night and Saturday but that did not cover any transportation to and from rink.  The County wants to do this each year, so we have more opportunities to make this a much better event.  Go to the left side of our website for the Master Schedule and who is playing whom.  We have had some drop outs and Rob Van Winkle, LAHA Scheduler, has done a great job of filling back in with other teams.

There will be two clinics by the Ice Wolves on Saturday for the Mites and Squirts.

ONLINE TRAINING FOR SCOREKEEPERS

LAHA MEMBERS,

As you know we have a big weekend this coming weekend for LAHA hockey and NM Ice Wolves.  With the beginning of the season, we always need help with scorekeepers and clock operators in the scorebox.  Our past president, Renee Dunwoody, put together a training video for this exact need.  Here is the link for this http://www.lahockey.org/Page.asp?n=177657&org=lahockey.org

In addition, she has left some printed materials at the rink desk for you to use further.  Let me know if you need any further help.  More in another email about this weekend and some things you need to know.

LA COUNTY RINK TO CLOSE ~3PM, 12/4/2022

LAHA MEMBERS,

The rink management just called and said the rink is closing due to the weather and no colling system.  The system is supposed to be repaired tomorrow morning.  We will let you know if we are on for tomorrow night.

Off Ice Officials Training

Hello all.  Hope you have had a good start to the season.

As always, it is crucial that we have volunteers to help our games run smoothly. Off-Ice Officials training is for volunteers interested in helping run the clock, keep score, or work the penalty box.

Here you can find the slides used in the training at the link below.

https://s3.amazonaws.com/files.leagueathletics.com/Images/Club/2141/Off Ice Officials Training 2021.key 

The training video that accompanies the slides is about an hour long and provides an overview of the expectations of the off-ice official.  It can be found at this Youtube link.

https://youtu.be/i7CQ02GA-bo

 

There is an Off-Ice Officials manual that you will need to obtain.  Please email me at   to request a copy of the manual or pick one up from the front desk of the rink this week at practice. 

Thanks for helping.  

Renee Dunwoody

REQUIRED VALIDATION DEC. 12 & 13

LAHA MEMBERS,

Every so often, USA Hockey, requires validation of players birth.  The state registrar is going to be doing this on Dec. 12 & 13.  You will need to bring your players birth certificate or passport to the rink so she can validate that document.  Below are the details.

The NM state registrar for USA Hockey, Donna Pimentel,  will be attending practices at the Los Alamos rink Monday 12/12 from 6-8pm and Tuesday 12/13 from 5-7:30pm.  At those times we need all players to bring either their ORIGINAL birth certificates or a passport for her to inspect.

This is done so that birth years entered into USA Hockey can be verified, once verified this never has to be done again.  Due to Covid this has not been done for the last few years so nearly all of our 12U (Pee Wees) and younger players will need to be verified.  

Even if your player will not be at practice those days their documents need to be verified. 

If you can not make one of these dates at our rink in Los Alamos here are the other locations where you can get your documents verified.

Saturday Dec 3: Outpost Ice Arena, 12-2:30pm

Sunday Dec 4: McDermott Activity Center, 3-5:30pm

Monday Dec 5: Santa Fe, GCCC, 6-8pm

Please let me know if you have any questions,

ANOTHER EQUIPMENT DISTRIBUTION SUNDAY, DEC. 4

LAHA MEMBERS,

Josh Holcumb, LAHA Equipment Mgr., is holding another equipment distribution/return/handout on Sunday, Dec. 4, 1-2:30 PM at the White Rock Storage building.  This will be an opportunity for kids and hockey moms to get the hockey gear that they need. This will also be a great time for people to return their gear back.

NO EXPIERENCE NECESSARY - HOCKEY MOMS CAN NOW PLAY HOCKEY

LAHA MEMBERS,

We have created a time slot for hockey moms to practice/play games on Sunday night at 6:30-7:30 pm. There is no expierence necessary.  You will need to register with USAH.  The fee for LAHA is free.  Ryan Berg & Josh Holcumb will be leading the practices and instruction.  They will start this coming Sunday just to introduce everyone to what they plan on doing.  Then things start back up on December 4, 2022.  We will provide equipment for them too.

NM ICEWOLVES VS EL PASO RHINOS HERE DEC. 9-11

LAHA MEMBERS,

The LA County has organized the subject game here at the LA Rink on December 11, 2 PM.  In addition, on Friday night the rink has given us ice time for games that night.  On Saturday we have all the ice all day.  We have invited the El Paso Rhino's Youth Hockey Association to bring teams.  The Ice Wolves have offered to hold some instructional times for our and El Paso youth teams on Saturday afternoon.  The schedule for that will be forthcoming.

In addition to all this, the Los Alamos County is selling 300 tickets for this event.  The tickets are already on sale at Eventbrite App. Los Alamos Winter Classic: Ice Wolves vs. El Paso Rhinos Hockey Game Tickets, Sun, Dec 11, 2022 at 2:00 PM | Eventbrite

The Los Alamos County is donating all these proceeds to LAHA!!  You read this properly, 300 tickets at $15 each.  If they were all sold, LAHA could realize $4500, so please purchase your tickets soon.

The County is also working out the parking situation with bus pickup and delivery at the HS parking lot.  We will keep you informed on all of this as we get closer to the event.
