Hello and welcome to the 2016-2017 KMHA season.  As the convenor for Atom, I will be responsible for the daily operation house league program.  

Season Overview

Currently – Gather volunteers, receive and review coaching applications

September 10th & 11th  – First Weekend of Sort Outs

September 17th & 18th – Second Weekend of Sort Outs

September to early March – Regular Season – 2 ice times per weekend provided by KMHA

December – Christmas break, no ice times provided (dates to be confirmed)

March – March break, no ice times provided (dates to be confirmed)

March to April – Playoffs (dates to be confirmed)

Sort Out Overview

Prior to the sort outs, I will receive the list of registered players from the KMHA Registrar in mid-August.  Once received, I will email each family with your sort out schedule.

Over 2 consecutive weekends, each player will be assigned time for Saturday and Sunday of each weekend. . Please note if you are unable to make your sort out time, this time cannot be “made up”.

We will then balance the teams within each level (A, B & C) to the best of our ability. We will not permit friend requests to influence team composition and/or to potentially create an imbalance.

Volunteers Needed

To ensure another successful year, I am looking for volunteers in any capacity.  If you are only available short term to help during sort outs or would be available for a full season commitment, there are many opportunities to help out.  To volunteer for any of the positions below, please send me an email at

Sortout Volunteers

  • Registration Desk
  • Ice General
  • Evaluators
  • On Ice Stations

For the Season

  • Coaches
  • Assistant Coaches
  • Goalie Coaches
  • Trainers
  • Managers

After Sort Outs


We will select a head coach for each team.  That list will be submitted to the Director of House and VP of Hockey Programs for verification. If you would like to be considered for a head coaching position, please let me know as soon as possible.  

Throughout the Season

Should you have any questions or concerns regarding the upcoming season, or would be interested in volunteering, please contact me at

Looking forward to a great season.
