Submitted By Mike Creedon on Saturday, October 31, 2020
The NOHA with the Great North U18 AAA league have received approval to form teams and play modified 5 on 5 hockey.  The team will consist of 22 players, then be divided into 2 teams of 11 players for game play (similar rules to what SMHA have now in 3on3 play).  The Sault Jr Greyhounds will be in a cohort with Sudbury.

The team coached by Jamie Henderson and staff; and will travel to & host sudbury in double header games.  Each of the teams of 11 players will play 2 games when the two groups meet at a location.  All APH & SPH rules will apply and will be made available in coming weeks, as well as the rules of the modified play.  Evaluations will Start after Nov 15th, and run until at the lastest Nov 27th.  All players interested in playing for the Soo Jr Greyhounds must register with Jamie Henderson by emailing to [email protected]  Evaluations will be limited to 30 participants including coaches so the evaluation schedule will depend on numbers and will be on this website.

It is expected that each team will play 6 games in December, 4 vs Sudbury plus 2 intersquad locally.  January and beyond is to be decided and communicated closer to January.    

All participants must register by Nov 6th so that the schedule can be determined, register by emailing Coach Jamie Henderson your intend to tryout.  Tryouts fees will apply to players not in U18 Tier 1 at present, and anyone not registered with SMHA currently is reminded that all releases and permissions to skate are neccessary to participate.

Details of the fees and evaluation schedule will be made available thru the coaching staff.
