I have attached the run down for the weekend below. Please sign up to help. It is a great way for us to end our season. These shifts count toward your concession shifts so sign up and get them done!!!
Hello CVSA Families!
CVSA will be hosting the 2013-2014 Vermont State Hockey Tournament playdowns for the Squirt A Division the weekend of February 15 and 16.
We will also be hosting the Bantam A Tournament the weekend of February 21-23.
It takes a village to run a tournament. This is a great fundraising opportunity for CVSA! We will have six teams in house over each respective weekend. That's food, admission fees, etc., and all for us.
We will need assistance in the following areas. As soon as game times are confirmed I’ll post the volunteer sign-up sheet, hopefully in the next few days.
Admission (Needs to arrive 30 minutes prior to game time) Scorer Timekeeping Penalty Box Concession (3 people pershift)
All state tournament shifts count toward your yearly concession commitments! Remember to fill in your shifts on your child's concession card.
As I said, this is a huge boost for CVSA financially, but it takes all of us to make it happen!!
Thank you for your support on this.
We have multiple teams competing in States this year. The other teams will be playing as noted:
The Squirt B team will be playing in Mississquoi the weekend of 2/14-2/16.
The Peewee B team will be playing in Harwood the weekend of 2/14-2/16.
The Peewee A team will be playing in Stowe the weekend of 2/14-2/16.
More details will be provided as I get them. Those teams playing tournaments off-site should hear from their Tournament Directors directly. Good luck to all of our CVSA Capitals!!!
CVSA has created the following locker room policies in order to create and maintain a safe, clean and enjoyable environment for all CVSA members and participants at events, including games and practices. Therefore, we ask that the club members read and follow the following locker room policies.
Supervision in Locker Room
It is the policy of CVSA to have at least one responsible adult present directly monitoring the locker room during all team events to assure that only participants, (coaches and players) and family members are permitted in the locker room and to supervise the conduct in the locker room. Any individual meetings with a CVSA participant and a coach, parent coordinator (or someone other than the parent) in a locker room shall require another responsible adult be with the coach/parent coordinator/parent monitor at all times. Further, responsible adults must personally monitor the locker room environment at all times while participants are present.
Rough-housing, Cell Phone and Video Game Use in Locker Room
While many players and parents bring cell phones to hockey practices and games, CVSA will not allow cell phone use for calls or photos in the locker room. The use of cell phones can be distracting for players and interfere with coaching and player conversations. In addition, the opportunity for inappropriate locker room photos exists, and may cause harm to those that were not prepared for photos to be taken and/or shared. The supervising parent or coach will ask that cell phones be kept out of the locker room or concealed where they are not used or heard.
CVSA requests that video games are not used in the locker room at practices and games. Please keep these games in the snack area, viewing area or in the car.
CVSA is concerned with the safety and well-being of its participants and therefore our policy is that no rough housing or verbal abuse by players, coaches or parents may occur in the locker room (or other locations in the rink). Those that participate in this behavior will be warned and then asked to leave the rink.
Food and Drink in the Locker Room
At times players, coaches and their families will have food or drink in the locker room prior or post games and practices. CVSA would like to continue a positive relationship with the Central Vermont Memorial Civic Center, and encourages respect for all rink property. Therefore CVSA asks that members be sure to leave their locker room area clean and bring all food and waste out of the locker room when they leave. This is also a case where the locker supervisor can play a role and help monitor.
The implementation of these above stated policies require and deserve the assistance of all players, coaches, parents and volunteers. Thank you for supporting the safety and well-being of all players and their families.
We hope that you are enjoying the warm days of summer! The CVSA board is already preparing for the start of our season in October. In order to determine numbers of teams and schedule ice times/games, we need to know NOW how many players we will have.
