A Letter from The League ​
Our Muskoka Parry Sound Local League Championship Playoff Weekend is only a couple weeks away, and another very busy but highly successful regular season is just about over.

I just want to take a minute to thank everyone, for all of the hard work that goes into a Local League season. As with any volunteer organization, it takes a great amount of time and commitment by very dedicated individuals to keep and/or at times to try to keep things running smoothly.

I want to thank our excellent Executive Board members, made up of volunteers from each of your centres for lending their very valuable time this, and every season. I cannot thank them and all of you enough.

The number one thank you however, goes to all of the parents, players, coaches and volunteers who continue to help out with our great game. We can plan and schedule all we like but without your time and commitment week in and week out, game in and game out, it would be all for nothing.

This was our biggest season yet with several new modifications:

  • The hockey season was expanded with more games in all divisions.

  • We used electronic game sheets for Local League teams in all divisions.

  • We expanded the U9 season and added a formal Playoff Tournament

  • We have the addition of a MPS U8 Jamboree

With another very exciting regular hockey season coming to an end, to say it has been a crazy busy season or year for that matter, would be a huge understatement! However, while no season is ever quite perfect, I hope that all the hours dedicated by our Executive and all the other volunteers greatly helped to make all the time spend at the rink more enjoyable.

We have and continue to try to be an innovative and a forward thinking league, I personally continue to be very proud of what the MPSLL has accomplished in a relatively short period of time. With the help of our Executive, coaches, and other volunteers - both past and present, our league continues to grow and attract new players. We all continue to be excited as to what lies ahead for Local League hockey in Muskoka Parry Sound.

Finally, as always I want to wish everyone a safe and fun rest of the season, and a great Championship Playoff Weekend. Please enjoy the games from wherever you are, be it on the ice, on the bench or in the stands.

Cheer loud, play hard, play fair and play safe.
Yours in hockey,

Dan Hildebrandt
