MHS HOCKEY INFORMATIONAL MEETING:
To The Parents of All Prospective Players (2015-16 Hockey season):
You are invited to an Informational Meeting on Tuesday, May 19th @ 7PM in the HS Cafeteria. Although this meeting is not mandatory by any means – it is very important that you attend and get involved. This meeting is for parents of all prospective players for the 2015-16 season.
The main topic of the meeting will be the Friends of Marshfield Hockey (FOMH) and their fundraising efforts for the upcoming season. The new FOMH Board of Directors will be on hand to answer any questions and educate all of our parents about the importance of getting involved in all of our fundraising efforts. As many of you know, the JV Hockey teams at MHS are almost entirely funded by the money raised by the many FOMH fundraisers. These fundraisers are a huge part of our ability to keep 60+ players on the ice.
The Coaches will also be available to answer any type questions you may have. We hope to see everybody there. If you cannot make it and want additional information emailed to you – please respond to Coach Connolly @ email@example.com.
The Friends of Marshfield Hockey & The Coaching Staff
As you watch the Winter Games in Sochi, there are some valuable lessons in the short biographies of eight men from Minnesota who have risen to the top of their sport. Their growth from Minnesota youth hockey to outstanding performers in the NHL earned them a spot on the U.S. Olympic Team, and it is instructive to look into the paths they chose along the way.
Six of them played high school hockey through their senior year (two at Shattuck-St. Mary’s), while one chose the USHL and one went to USA Hockey's National Team Development Program (NTDP) in Ann Arbor, Mich., for his junior and senior years.
It is never too early to start to plan for college tuition. The Marshfield Friends of Hockey awards scholarships to deserving players. The criteria for the award includes preparing an essay that describes the lesson that the player has learned by playing on the team, it also includes being an active member in the fund-raising, participation in the community service projects, and being a team player. Please keep the requirements in mind as the years roll along and the fund-raising events and community service projects are announced. The specific criteria and deadline for the essay will be available at a later date.
