Excitement surrounds Wilkie Minor Hockey season

After a 10-year absence, players and fans were excited to have a U18 team in Wilkie Outlaws jerseys once again

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.
