WILKIE ‑‑ With teams in all divisions from U7 to U18, the Wilkie Minor Hockey season has 71 kids in the program. The addition of the U18 Wilkie Outlaws, after a 10-year absence, was exciting for the organization and fans alike.
The U13 and U18 teams are a combined team with Biggar players.
For the first time, WMH offered a Mighty Mites program that began Dec. 1 and included kids ages 3-5, having nine kids registered. A program like this is also exciting for the organization as it starts to get younger kids used to skating in equipment and developing a love for the game.
There was significant change on the minor hockey board, which presented challenges at the beginning of the season, but has now evolved into a smooth operation. Volunteers who sit on the executive as well as volunteer coaches and managers are the heart of the WMH organization and ensure a seamless season for all participants.
The WMH executive includes: president Rick Cey, vice-president Jared Herle, secretary Jill Thomson, treasurer Elise Brightman in addition to members Tamara Sander, Skye Braun, Jamie Coleman and Wade Bleier.
