Which leaves it very late for the associations involved. Registration is happening, the affected associations are probably trying to figure out logistics, evaluations etc. The longer the delay goes on the harder it will be for them.

I know ice time is short in this city, and that any any time a league moves to pick up ice somewhere it hopefully opens up ice times at the place (s) they leave but this is the third time a new complex has opened and a majority of the ice has been scooped up by adult leagues. Winsport, Great Plains, and now this complex would all cater essentially to non-minor hockey if this is the case. I'm not saying this is a bad thing, if these leagues left ice elsewhere to take it up here then it all evens out but if they are giving up late evening slots to take prime time slots here it does leave minor hockey in a jam.

^^ Completely agree but I heard a rumor they are paying up to $500/hr for the icetime.

I was really hoping we would get use of the ice for decent times since the reserve is part of the SW association.

I wonder how this delay in registration will effect planning for the Associations? I am sure McKnight and Simons Valley have had to purchase more jerseys? Both will need more ice that needs to be budgeted for and likely deposits made. Only Springbank and Trails west are allowed to open registration on June 1. They will have a leg up on planning over just about everyone. Just a huge waste in time and money. It is just dumb.

Boundaries changes likely get delayed a year is my guess. I would force the Saints (with their low numbers) to field teams in the top divisions. They had no PeeWee AA or 1 teams this year. Their top team plays in Div 2. So dumb

my son's spring program is having it's end of spring season tourny this weekend. Was nice to slip away tot he rink yesterday afternoon to watch him play for an hour. They tied their first game at 5's and it included a game tieing goal for my son's team with net empty.

Fun hockey to watch as most players are the AAA level including some guys who I assume played junior A/B
