All stakeholders in the game are encouraged to attend and take an active role in creating a model for minor hockey development in Manitoba at this year's Season Opener conference through a variety of short presentations, information sessions and workshops. A number of Hockey Manitoba & Hockey Canada initiatives coming forward this season will be discussed and training/education for minor hockey volunteers across the province will be a priority once again.
Bill Whitehead, President of Hockey Manitoba, exclaimed, "Our branch continues to prioritize the advancement and development of minor hockey, and we are excited to come together at the Season Opener with this common goal in mind."
