To all players trying out for SAMHA’s Atom Dev A and B teams and all rep teams in Pee Wee, Bantam, Midget and Midget Female:
Please look at the rep tryout schedule on this website. Tryouts will start on August 29th at Shaw Centre. Midget Female players...note that your first tryout will take place at Kal Tire Place Aug. 31st in Vernon. All those signed up for tryouts will be contacted by respective head coaches in your division for more information. Jerseys will be assigned at your first practice. These will be collected at the end of your tryouts. Do not change jerseys during the tryouts unless you are told too.

Players will not be allowed on the ice if registration is not complete so please register on-line asap or complete hard copy and waiver form if you are new or from adjacent association. These should be returned to the minor hockey office at Shaw Centre.

To all Bantam players trying out...a body checking clinic will be held on Friday, Aug. 28th. We encourage all players to attend this one hour session. Full gear is required.

Through our website, we will keep all players/parents informed if there any changes to the rep tryout format.

Note to all parents...this time of year is very hard for many of you. It is critical you maintain positive during this process and give your child lots of support. Evaluators will have the difficult task of evaluating all players and should not be interrupted during this process. More information will be forthcoming in terms of the reassignment process and other details. We wish all the players the very best.

Juvenile Hockey - Salmon Arm Minor Hockey Association will again ice a Juvenile recreation team this coming season. All players must register by August 31st.
Players who live in the SAMHA catchment area can register on line if they played minor hockey in Salmon Arm.
Those players from adjacent associations must complete a hard copy of registration form and also include OMAHA Residential Waiver (Recreation) form.
This form must be signed by your local registrar before submitting. All forms are available here.
SAMHA has once again approved of an introductory offer of $350. Each player must submit a $100 payment and remainder can be completed by post dated cheques or full amount can be paid at time of registration. An information meeting will be held on August 17 at the Uptown Askews at 6pm.

Important Parent Information:
At the June 15, 2015 board meeting, a motion was passed by the board that: “all minor hockey registered players must have at least one parent/guardian who has completed the Parent Respect in Sport online program by November 1 2015, or the child’s playing privileges will be suspended until the course has been completed”.

The board also resolved that upon completion of the course, and submission of the receipt,  SAMHA will reimburse parents for the cost of the online course registration fee. Please drop off receipt at the minor hockey office. Thank you.
