To clarify any issues with scheduling the new floor times we have had our Scheduling Director outline the reasoning in which we have modified the days in which our players play.
As a club we are fully aware that the GELC posts on their website that the mini tykes(6U) are to practice on Wednesdays, this happens within the City of Edmonton because the GELC books the floor times for the Edmonton Clubs. However Strathcona County owns the Titans floor times and provides us with the access to the floors, which we have no say in for timing as there are other users that also book floors. This year with the County's decision to remove access for dry surface at the Arena, as the ice is remaining in for the Crusaders(Sherwood Park's hockey team) until May 1 with dry surface access beginning May 8, we are unable to accommodate the Mini tykes(6U) with a Wednesday practice time. Due to this lack of floor availability a day/days will be chosen and the chosen day/days will remain static for the season. If there are 4 or less Mini Tyke teams they will all practice on the same day, either Monday, Tuesday, or Thursday at Broadmoor Arena and Shell Arena at 5pm or 6pm. If there are more than 4 teams there will be 2 days per week selected and the Mini Tykes(6U) will always practice on these days at Broadmoor or Shell at 5pm or 6pm. We cannot determine the set day or days until we have confirmed how many teams we have.
Pre-Season floor times always vary for every age group. Pre-season is from April 6-19, the season for Minis and Tykes runs from April 20 through June 21.
