Parents and Players  

Coaches give many long dedicated hours to help our House league and Travel systems succeed. We would like to ask your help by taking the time to evaluate our coaches.  Please properly review your coach’s performance this season as COACH EVALUATIONS are a serious matter. 

We are often confronted with negative coaching experiences, but many times some problems go unnoticed as we do not get proper feedback. We understand that many times, parents are reluctant to approach us with their concerns for fear of possible repercussions for their child. We are striving to deal with problems early on to avoid the negative impact they can have on a player.

Coaches can learn to be better coaches, but only if we know what the problems are. This evaluation process helps us learn what needs to be done to improve the situation. We also want to promote this evaluation to recognize the GOOD our coaches do as well. Often the good takes a back seat to the bad and we don’t hear about it. We would love to see 100% participation in this evaluation exercise. 

Improved communication is the only way to improve our coaches. Scores from these evaluations will be reviewed when coaches are being interviewed for next year’s teams. Please give these evaluations the same priority the coach gives to your team throughout the year. Be assured that individual evaluations are to be held CONFIDENTIAL.

This past weekend the team travelled to Columbus, Ohio and participated in the Buckeye Classic.  Through their hard work, determined effort, and gritty team play, the boys were able to bring home a championship with a close 3-2 victory over a pesky team from Buffalo, New York.   More importantly, throughout the weekend the boys continued to gel and form a stronger bond that should pay dividends in the future. Congratulations boys.

Well Done,
Coach Paolo

Please review the Tryout Player List for the final roster.

For the players not on the final roster, I am hopeful that you will continue to develop your skill set and foster your passion for hockey over the course of your hockey season.

For the players listed, congratulations and welcome to the 2017-2018 Bantam AE team. I would appreciate it if all the listed families would send their contact email to [email protected] for future correspondence.

Good Luck to All,

Throughout the tryout process the evaluators and I have been hoping to find the right mix of 03/04 players whom are eager to grow as hockey players, as teammates, and as responsible members of our community.

The process of forming a travel hockey team involves many people and is never an easy task. This year has been, and continues to be, especially difficult.  I commend all 33 players for trying out, and you have my deepest respect for your gritty, determined, and passionate participation.  The final roster will be posted on Sunday afternoon.

Well done boys,
Coach Paolo
