With our new website now up and running, we are committed to being able to bring the coaches, players, and parents up to date on relevant information in regards to our association.

 





This will be an ongoing feature with the website, and we look forward to using this as a better way to communicate with everyone.
 
We have received some questions in regards to the number of Elgin players attending our tryouts.  Elgin does not have spring tryouts this year.  However they will next season, as will every other Alliance member association. This was mandated by the OHF, and although we think it is a good idea, was not our decision.  Players from Elgin can pay our registration fee and attend our tryouts, on a permission to skate basis issued by their association.  The LJK did the same to many of our players last season that wanted to attend Huron Perth spring tryouts. This form allows a player to tryout, but the player cannot sign with the team.  The only way a player would be eligible to play with us is by obtaining an F1 waiver, or through a residency move into London.  In the past we have lost players to other associations this way, but have also benefited to the same extent.
 
There has also been a significant structure change to our program.  With our agreement with the GLHA, we have reduced our AA teams by one at each age group.Prior to this, we had 34 players involved with AA hockey in London.  In partnership with the GLHA, we now afford the opportunity for 85 players, albeit now only one team with the LJK.  We believe in time more players playing a higher level of hockey will only strengthen our program.  This will also help the competitiveness of the GLHA Seeded teams by spreading the 17 players amongst their home associations, and in turn help the Seeded league and our member partner programs.  The relationship between our AAA and AA teams will be strengthened with age appropriate AP affiliations.

We are very proud of our program, the success of our teams, the quality of our coaches, and the direction our program is headed.

 

Respectfully;

The Board of the London Junior Knights
