Welcome to the 2022-2023 U13 House League season.  My name is William Burnie and I will be serving as the U13 House League Convenor for the coming season.  This will be my fifth year as a House League Convenor having spent one season at U9, two seasons at U11 and last year at U13.  I also serve on the KMHA Board as the Director, Risk and Safety.


My vision for all players in the U13 House League is to see all players work hard in practices to develop their skills, play hard in games and most of all, have FUN!  Any player, regardless of whether they are in House C, House B, or House A; if they work hard and play hard, then they increase their opportunities to play at higher levels.


Most importantly, is to have FUN.  It does not matter if they win every game, or lose every game.  It does not matter they a score goal, get an assist or get shut out as a goalie.  If they come off ice after a practice or game, having given best effort and had fun, then they should happy and we all should happy for them as well.


Furthermore, as the U13 Convenor, I expect all players, coaches and parents to treat the on-ice officials with respect at all times.  At U13, your child still learning the finer details of the game of hockey, the same goes for the on-ice officials.  So be please be patient and show respect.


Finally, I am aware that during the course of the season, issues or concerns may raise.  The KMHA does have a conflict resolution process in place.  If you can not resolve the matter by talking the coach, please feel free to contact me at: u13convenor@kmha.ca.


Looking forward to a fun and exciting season.
