SPinline: 2016 Season

Sunday, March 13
Information on 2016 Inline Season

At this time, we are working with Edmonton Inline in order to facilitate a season for those children who want to play. We have booked floor surface at the Ardrossan Rec Centre for games played against Edmonton Inline teams, and for occasional drop-in floor times for our grassroots programs. We are not collecting registration fees this season for U8-U17.

All players should register with and pay Edmonton Inline from U8-U17.

Individual player registration is up until April 8. The deadline for registering a full team is March 20

Coaches Meetings: March 23, 24 of 2016

Referee Training: April 5, 6, 7 of 2016

MARTIN YONGE ICE BREAKER TOURNAMENT - APRIL 8-10, 2016 (8U - Jr)

Youth League starts: April 17 and game nights are as follows:

U8 - SUNDAY AND WEDNESDAY

U12 - MONDAY, WEDNESDAY AND FRIDAY

U10 and U14 - TUESDAY, THURSDAY AND SUNDAY

U17, Junior, and Adult - SUNDAY TO FRIDAY

Registration is found at: http://edmontoninline.ab.ca/default.aspx?p=registrationmessage

Players who register as individuals may contact us so that we can let Edmonton Inline know to place you with local kids where possible. We may be able to assist in pairing up players in a group so they have a few buddies on their team.

If your friends have put together a full team, they will still need to register individually with Edmonton Inline; however, there is a form that can be submitted where you list the players and coaches of the team by March 20. You also give the team a name and should put "Sherwood Park" in the name so that Edmonton Inline will know to have that team's home games at our local facility when possible.

When registering with Edmonton, the registration fee covers jersey cost, floor time, insurance, etc. We have a limited supply of jerseys that are available to Sherwood Park teams at no charge. First-come, first-served and sizes/colours are not guaranteed. Edmonton will refund a portion of the team fee if you can supply your own jerseys.

We continue to have a supply of goalie equipment for teams that require it at no charge.

We will not be hosting evaluations this season, but we may have floor space available for players who want to sharpen up their skills if they are rusty, prior to the Ice Breaker tournament in April. We will also be offering drop-in floor times with the schedule to be published on spinline.org.

Referees who wish to participate in the clinic and be listed can attend in Edmonton and be placed on their assigning list. There is no guarantee that your games will be local, but you can open a dialogue with your assignor if you would like to take part.There is an application on the Edmonton Inline home page for anyone interested.

As you have likely guessed, we are operating with only a few volunteers in place this season. We would like to look to the future and recruit anyone interested in continuing SPInline as a locally operated group. If you would like to participate in meetings, learn about operations, and put your name forward for a board position in 2017, please use the "contact us" form on the website, spinline.org Registration numbers have decreased in recent seasons, but there is good reason to think that a resurgence in the sport is possible with the support of the community. We need support with laying the groundwork over the winter in 2016 so that we can get our registration up and running, contracts in place, equipment and jerseys ordered, and information out to our members earlier.
