River East AA Marauders

2018-19 AA Year End Report

Great coaches and families made for a fun 18/19 hockey season at AA. Unfortunately none of our teams faired too well in playoffs.

The 19/20 season is bringing forth changes mandated by Hockey Winnipeg. We will finally be joining the rest of the country and dual aging the male AA program.

The Marauders will ice two Peewee teams, two Bantam teams and one midget team.

There is still a lot to sort out with this change such as:

  • Minimum and maximum numbers for minor and major players per team
  • Ttryout process
  • Coaches

We do have 3 of 5 coaches in place and are proud to announce:

  • Curtis Friesen will head coach one of the PeeWee teams
  • Shawn Sesak will head coach one of the Bantam teams
  • Barry Rochelle will coach the Midget team

We would like to thank these coaches for stepping up to keep our program fun and competitive.

There will be a lot of pros and cons to this change this year however we are going to make the best of it. It should help the coaches find tournaments as every other minor hockey association dual ages. This also pushes the minor aged players to compete at a higher level with the major aged players. The major aged players act as leaders on the team and then the next year the minor ages move up to major and get to act as the leaders. Itís a proven method in female hockey and in rural associations throughout our province.

We will continue to put out competitive teams in a safe and fun environment for our athletes.

Enjoy your summer! See you at the rink.
