Welcome from

President, Kamloops Minor Hockey Association

KMHA PRESIDENT Hold on to your hat, or should I say helmet! This year could be the biggest year yet for Kamloops Minor Hockey and the City of Kamloops. If you haven’t heard the news, well let me be the first to tell you. Kamloops will be the host of the 2016 IIHF Women’s World Championship March 28 to April 4, 2016. That’s 8 teams, 22 exciting games at world class facilities, ISC and MacArthur Island Sport and Event Center. Don’t miss out. Go to hockeycanada.ca for details. Kamloops Minor Hockey will host the BC Provincial Championship for all divisions of female minor hockey. Where else can you see the best in female hockey other than March 2016 in Kamloops? If that wasn’t enough, Kamloops will be the host of Scotiabank’s Hockey Day in Canada, February 6, 2016. That’s right! Scotiabank and Roger Sportsnet will be bringing the show to Kamloops, along with Ron Maclean and Don

Cherry. It will be days jam packed with hockey of all levels starting Wednesday, February 3rd. And by the way, we still haven’t mentioned that Kamloops is the largest minor hockey association in BC with 1385 registered players in 2015, 85 teams, over 250 coaches, thousands of volunteer hours. I’d go on but I don’t want to come off as bragging. Hockey is a lot of fun in Kamloops with many great people involved. Don’t miss out on the action with all this going on. We are always looking for help and ideas. Please visit our website: kamloopsminorhockey. com for information, or on how to contact us. Our city has so much to offer. Please take time to visit many of our great attractions, restaurants and amenities. Many of them are minor hockey supporters. Enjoy your time in Kamloops, and safe travels. We look forward to hosting you in the near future.

Welcome from

KMHA DIRECTOR OF HOCKEY OPERATIONS As Director of Hockey Operations for KMHA I have the opportunity to be involved with many areas of the association. I love the camaraderie, I love the sport and I love the kids…I have had the privilege to watch many of the players grow up to be wonderful adults that are now giving back to the game themselves. I personally have built many long term friendships through KMHA, while my sons played their 12 years of minor hockey. My hope is that you and your children will build these friendships as well...ones that will last a

lifetime; and remember to have fun along the way. KMHA has played a huge role in my life and has become an integral part of my social activities. I anxiously await the start of each hockey season and enjoy the opportunity to watch as many games as possible. Our association hosts up to 20 tournaments a year. I hope that if you travelled to Kamloops to participate in one of our tournaments, you have a great experience and your family enjoys your stay. Good Luck! www.kibiht.com • www.kamloopsstormhockey.com • www.kamloopsminorhockey.com | 1

The Road to Kamloops & the 2016 IIHF Ice Hockey Women’s World Championship The 2016 IIHF Ice Hockey Women’s World Championship will take over Kamloops, B.C., from March 28 to April 4. Eight teams will compete for the right to wear the gold medal, but how did they find their way to Canada’s Tournament Capital? The national teams of Canada, Czech Republic, Finland, Japan, Russia, Sweden, Switzerland and the United States will represent their countries, but these rosters are far from united most of the season. In many cases the 23 players for each country only began playing as a team a few weeks before the tournament. Canada and the United States typically field teams made up players who spend the season competing either at the university level or in the Canadian Women’s Hockey League. Others play with their club teams. In all cases, players temporarily part with them to train with their national clubs. In the case of Canada’s National Women’s Team, management and coaches will evaluate players not only throughout the season, but also at the team’s Fall Festival in September, the 4 Nations Cup in November and a training camp in early 2016. While the Canadian and American decision-makers have their eyes on players on two continents, those in Europe are often looking in many more directions. Players are looking for the best development opportunities, which means not only leaving for North America but for other parts of Europe. The format for the IIHF Ice Hockey Women’s World Championship changed in 2012. With competitive

unbalance leading to too many blowouts, the IIHF created a more level playing field in the preliminary rounds by putting the higher seeded teams together as Group A, and the four lower ranked teams as Group B. Previously groups were more parallel in distribution, with a mix of high and low seeds. All the teams in Group A and the top two teams in Group B advance to the playoffs, with the top two teams in Group A earning a quarter-final bye. The remaining teams cross-over (A3-B2; A4-B1), with the winners advancing to the semifinals. The final results determine who goes in what group the following year. In Kamloops, Group A is comprised of the top four teams from the 2015 championship in Malmo, Sweden: the United States (gold), Canada (silver), Finland (bronze) and Russia (fourth). Group B has 2015 quarter-finalists Sweden and Switzerland. The third member of the quartet is Japan, who last year defeated Germany in a best-of-three relegation series. Germany fell down to Division 1, Group A, taking the place of the Czech Republic, who went undefeated there last year to earn promotion to Group B in Kamloops. Thirty-six teams – separated into six tiers – will compete at events within the 2016 IIHF Ice Hockey Women’s World Championship program and follow a similar pattern of promotion and relegation for 2017: finish first in Tier 2, advance to Tier 1; finish last in Tier 2, return to Tier 3; all the way down the line.

The Kamloops Minor Hockey Tim Horton’s Jamboree – How do we get there… Each year we host the Tim Horton’s Jamboree for all Initiation and Novice age players. This a great event which includes on ice games for all players and an off ice Carnival for all players and siblings. This year the Tim Horton’s Jamboree will run in conjunction with Hockey Day in Canada on February 6th, at MacIsland SportsCenter. The Initiation and Novice age players are our youngest hockey stars. The purpose of the program is to make children’s first contact with hockey a safe and positive experience. It is a structured learn-to-play hockey program designed to introduce beginners to the game’s basic skills. It enables participants to become contributing members

of a team effort, develop self– confidence, and experience a sense of personal achievement. These goals are achieved in an atmosphere of fun and fair play. The goals are: to have fun while playing hockey and engaging in physical activity, to learn the basic skills required to play the game of hockey, to develop an understanding of basic teamwork through participation in a variety of activities and adapted game situations, to create and refine basic motor patterns and to be introduced to the concepts of cooperation and fair play. The program focuses on skating, puck handling, stopping, passing, turning and shooting. While they are learning all these skills our number one priority is to see smiles on their faces.

Welcome from

THE REFEREES “Officials make for an easy target” Referees call penalties for actions by players or coaches that fall outside the rules of the game. Referee in Chief Kamloops Minor Hockey Through the calling of penalties it is hoped the player or coach will change their behavior. In my opinion officials cannot control the game, that’s up to the players, coaches and most important the parent(s). Players control the game through the choices they make while playing. Coaches control players by granting or denying ice time. If a player fails to play within the rules regardless of whether or not an official penalizes the action, it is the coach’s responsibility to teach proper and safe play and discipline that player by denying ice time. This is control of the game. If a coach does not act on his authority, then it is the coach who has failed to teach and control the player. Parents also control the player by approving or disapproving of the play of their son/daughter. If a player has a fear of his or her parent(s) approval, then it is wrong, in my opinion. I believe this is something that everyone involved in minor hockey, or hockey in general should take a minute to reflect on. Referees call penalties after something happens, they have no way to prevent something from happening. We as officials, try to ensure their safety or prevent injuries. Usually a referee reacts to something that has occurred. Whether it is an offside, icing or a penalty, it has to happen first. There is no rule in the book for us to stop play on the belief that something bad is about to happen or make up rules to eject a player who is misbehaving. Officials do, and will make mistakes. No one feels worse about it after this happens, but it is inevitable that it will happen, such is the nature of hockey or sport in general. “Referees make mistakes”, “players make mistakes”, “coaches make mistakes”. It is a game played by people, coached by people, and officiated by people. A missed offside, a bad penalty call or non-call, those are mistakes, but no worse

Doug Swaine

than making a bad pass, shooting wide of a wide open net, missing a check, making a bad line change or taking an undisciplined penalty. It is all a part of the game. Officials need to work hard to not make the same mistake again….. as do players and coaches. This happens in hockey and most sports, but it is not the cause for a team to lose. Please stop worrying about what the officials are doing. Coaches...coach, players…play and parent/fans watch and enjoy the competition. We in Kamloops are working with our officials to minimize mistakes and help them become competent and appreciated referees. I wish all coaches, players, parents/fans a safe and enjoyable 2015/2016 season. Yours in Officiating & Hockey, Doug Swaine KMHA Referee in Chief

PARENT RESPECT IN SPORT: Why we need it Hundreds of athletes were asked, “What is your worst memory from playing youth sports?” The overwhelming answer was “the ride home from the game with my parents.” Whether your child is just starting to play hockey or has been involved in the Rep stream, parents take heed. The vast majority of Moms and Dads that make rides home from games miserable for their children do so inadvertently. They aren’t stereotypical horrendous sports parents, the ones who scream at referees, loudly second-guess coaches or berate their children. They are well-intentioned folks who can’t help but initiate conversation about the contest before the sweat has dried on their child’s uniform. In the moments after a game, win or lose, kids desire distance. They make a rapid transition from athlete back to child. And they’d prefer if parents transitioned from spectatoror in many instances from coach- back to mom and dad. Research shows that young athletes especially enjoy having their grandparents watch them perform. Overall, grandparents are more content than parents to simply enjoy watching the child participate. And kids recognize that. A grandparent is more likely to offer a smile and a hug, and say “I love watching you play” and leave it at that. Meanwhile a parent might blurt out, “Why did you pass the puck when we talked about you carrying it down the ice” or “You didn’t hustle back to your position on defense” or “Your coach didn’t have the best skaters on the ice when it mattered most”. And on and on….Sure, an element of truth might be evident in the remarks. But the young athlete doesn’t want to hear it immediately after the game. Not from a parent. Comments that undermine teammates, the coach or even officials run counter to everything a young player is taught. And instructional feedback was likely already mentioned by the coach. Let your child bring the game to you if they want to. Sports is one of the few places in a child’s life where a parent can say, “this is your thing”. Athletics is one of the best ways for young people to take risks and deal with failure because the consequences aren’t fatal, they aren’t permanent. We’re talking about a game. So they usually don’t want or need a parent to rescue them when something goes wrong.

Alex Bors

5 Signs of a Nightmare Sports Parent Nearly 75 percent of kids who play organized sports quit by age 13. Some find that their skill level hits a plateau and the game is no longer fun. Others discover other interests. But too many promising athletes turn away from sports because their parents become insufferable. The 5 signs of a nightmare sports parent are: 1) Overemphasizing sports at the expense of sportsmanship 2) Having different goals than your child 3) Treating your child differently after a loss than a win 4) Undermining the coach 5) Living your own athletic dream through your child. 5 Signs of an IDEAL Sports Parent It’s much easier to be an ideal parent than a nightmare one: 1) Cheer everybody

on the team, not just your own child 2) Model appropriate behaviour 3) Know what is suitable to discuss with the coach 4) Know your role 5) Be a good listener and great encourager. And don’t be sparing with those magic words: “I love watching you play”. NOTE: One of the most common reasons coaches, managers, and officials, of all ages, cite for leaving sport is unacceptable parent behaviour. The Respect in Sport Parent Program, Canada’s only online training and certification program will help define a model of behaviour for all parents and create a more rewarding, safe and respectful environment for everyone involved. ~ Bruce E.

KMHA MEMORIAL TOURNAMENTS DARCY ROBINSON MEMORIAL PEEWEE TIER 1 (AAA) TOURNAMENT May 3, 1981 - September 27, 2007 The KMHA PeeWee Tier 1 (AAA) tournament has been dedicated to the memory of Darcy Robinson. The PeeWee AAA year was Darcy’s breakout year; he was captain of the team, coached by Peter Doyle. A memorial trophy for the tournament is being made and will be in place for the first annual tournament held October 17-19, 2008 Darcy Robinson was born in Kamloops, BC on May 3, 1981, and played his entire minor hockey with Kamloops Minor Hockey Association. A Canadian playing professional hockey for Asiago of the Italian hockey league, died September 27, 2007 during the season-opening game at the age of 26. The native of Kamloops, B.C., fell to the ice without being hit during the first period of a game with Renon and was rushed to a local hospital where he passed away. Robinson was beginning his second season with Asiago. Robinson played with six teams in the North American minor leagues before transferring to Asiago in 2005. The defenseman, who held dual Canadian-Italian citizenship, played junior hockey in Saskatoon and Red Deer, and was selected 233rd overall by the Pittsburgh Penguins in the 1999 draft. Prior to playing in Italy, Robinson played for the AHL’s Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins and the ECHL’s Wheeling Nailers. Darcy is described as being a “fierce competitor” who skated well and loved to win. Darcy’s brother, Daniel, said he had a kind heart. “He’s a pretty strong player on the ice, but he was a big softie off the ice — a big, teddy-bear-type deal.”

TODD CAMPBELL MEMORIAL BANTAM TIER 3 (B) TOURNAMENT May 6, 1984 – August 9, 1999 This tournament is dedicated to the memory of an outstanding young man who lost his life tragically. Todd’s life was filled with promise and enthusiasm for the future, and brought great joy to his family and friends. Todd’s passion for the game of Hockey started at a very early age. He enjoyed it so much that getting up for the dreaded 6:00am ers, games or practices was never a problem. Road Hockey games on the street and air hockey games at Grandma’s always included many of his closest friends. Once too tired to play outside Todd and his friends would enjoy the game on Nintendo 64 or NHL 99 inside. Todd always like being around people, adults included and loved to make everybody laugh. Todd loved his family and more importantly maintained an open and honest relationship with his parents. Birthday parties and vacations were his most treasured memories. Todd displayed a great desire to play Hockey. In memoriam the Todd Campbell Trust Fund was established to encourage Minor Hockey youth to continue playing and enjoying the game and most of all to have fun!

RANDY LINDROS MEMORIAL BANTAM TIER 1 (AAA) TOURNAMENT April 24, 1980 – December 5, 1995 (Now incorporated into KIBIHT as the Randy Lindros Division) In the brief time that we were given with Randy, hockey was a huge part of our relationship. The game brought us together to share moments and create wonderful memories, that we now cherish. Randy immensely enjoyed his hockey, his buddies, and the whole minor hockey experience. His love of hockey can be viewed as a tribute to all those that made his short career successful. So to the coaches, players, players’ parents, and Kamloops Minor Hockey, people who were part of our son’s playing days, we sincerely thank you. Naming this tournament in Randy’s memory is an honor that we share with all who came to know the champion he was. In closing, we strongly urge every parents to simply enjoy the game for what it is… a game! Put aside any negative and enjoy all the positive. Savour the early morning drive to practice, the four day break-your-budget tournament, and the smile that lets you know the game was fun… win or lose. Delight in every moment that hockey brings you and your child together.

Putting the fun back in hockey Purestock

Parents need to remember why our kids are playing minor sports. It’s not because maybe one day they will make the NHL, although maybe they will – though less than one percent ever do – but to have FUN! The Initiation and Novice hockey program is aimed at players 5-8 years old. The goal is to catch them before the fun is taken out of the game by system-obsessed coaches and maniacal parents – and to catch the parents, too, before they learn how to be hockey moms and dads from hell. It sounds, frankly, kind of pie-in-the-sky to think that the culture of hockey, of hockey parents, of coaches, can be programmed at the bottom of the pyramid. The idea that some good will work its way upwards is asking a lot of a sport that grows so cynical/violent at its affluent peak. Elite level hockey, the NHL, is a professional sport. That should have nothing to do with how our kids play at age five. And whose responsibility is that? It’s the parents and the coaches. If you’re teaching 5-8 year old kids to play like an NHLer, putting that kind of pressure on kids, they’re not going to play past 12. And if you talk to Hockey Canada, enrollment in this country is down, and it starts with kids not having as much fun. We get so passionate and competitive as soon as we walk in the rink doors, so jacked to watch our kids play, that we forget that the same rules we have in school and at home for our kids should apply at the rink, too- and they don’t. Kids are supposed to be learning about fun, about respect, responsibility, teamwork, about being with other kids, different kids, respecting coaches, respecting officials. Campbell-Pascall. The Psychology of It All There are simple do’s and don’ts to follow to make sure young athletes have positive experiences long before they step onto the ice and long after they are done competing. Regardless of a child’s choice, parents need to be supportive.

The Academy of Pediatrics cautions against that all or nothing approach. Young athletes who specialize in one sport will miss out on the benefits of other activities. They will also face additional physical and psychological demands from intense training and competition. After all, only .2 to .5 percent of all high school aged athletes will make it to the professional level. Instead, parents should use youth sports to teach their children important lessons like respect for their coaches and teammates and how to work well with others. Youth teams can also help children learn to trust others and build long-term relationships. Sports can be a scary emotional environment in which a child feels he or she is being judged. Parents can help by teaching their children that there are other kids who are going to beat them at times – or they may just have off days. Children have to be able to say, “I am not perfect. I make mistakes. I am human. I am not so special that I should win all the time or even perform well all the time”. Parents should be cautious of providing unwanted feedback. Children who talk only about sports with their parents, look at their parents for approval between plays, or argue constantly about their sport may be subtly telling their parents that they are being pushed too hard. And different problems can arise when parents blame coaches, other players, or referees if their child doesn’t play well or if the team doesn’t win. Children who watch their parents shift the blame to others have a hard time being accountable for their own actions later in life. Love and support your child unconditionally. Avoid being uninvolved or afraid to push a little for fear of pressuring, just do it with forethought and your child’s best interests in mind. Remember we want to keep them in the game, and in order to do that they have to continually be receiving positive feelings of worth and having a good time – enjoyment of the game is the ultimate goal.

Where did the Tournament Capital logo come from? The logo was commissioned from local artist Vaughn Warren in 2002. The logo highlights the recognizable peaks of Mounts Peter and Paul. The colours chosen reflect the green of the valley bottom in Kamloops and the warm desert colours of the grasslands. The blue ribbon along the bottom illustrates the meeting of the North and South Thompson Rivers. The gold medal with red maple leaf represents what athletes strive for in Canada's Tournament Capital!
