Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 18, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Tnurtddf, January It, 1973 THE LETHBRID5E HERALD 13 Full slate of activities planned by local association Minor Hockey Week in Lethbridge kicks off Saturday By PAT SULLIVAN Herald Sports Editor Wien was the last lime you heard the saying "Take, don't send, your boy to the rink, and slay and watch hira There's no doubt in my mind that it was a year ago. An I right? I would have bet money J was. You don't hem' anyone say it except once a year. Now is Ihe time, and from LVJS Satur- day unli] a week Sunday, you will hear it constantly. This Saturday marks t b e beginning of Minor Hockey Week in and all across Cajiadj. Can you ima- gine the scope of this pro- ject? Every young boy in Can- ada who is a memlier of a minor hotkey association or who may simply Lake part in a district recreation league, will benefit from the week- long celebrations. The Lethbridge Minor Hock- ey Association has a full slate of plans for ihe coming week. Tliere would appear to be something for everyone from lie mothers taking on their sons to the always ridiculous Smociey Game. This year's Sraockey encounter will fea- ture the News Media and the minor hockey executive against the Sawbones or Doc- tors. The game is Tuesday night. Jan. 23 at at Hen- derson Ice Cemre. Full use of all three rinks, Henderson, the Civic and Adams Ice Centre, will be made for ihe nine days of ac- tivity. This year in the Lethbndge association there are 863 boys registered to play hockey. Last year the loial reached 650. In the house league there are 42 teams alone. This total is made up of 16 Pee Wee teams, 15 Bantam B, sis Ban- tam A and eight Midget clubs. The Pee Wees are under 12 years of age, Bantam covers 12-14 while Midget takes care of the 14-16 year olds. On top of this there are eight reps learns including Pee three Bantam, two Midget and one Juvenile. To say that another com- munity type rini; is needed is an understatement of gigan- tic proportions. Ai present teams are av- eraging games per by utilizing every spare min- ute of ice time. Pee Wees Av- erage one. one hour ganie and one. one hoar per week. According to ore official, the older players re- ceive even less ice time. This year alone there will be 616 house league gamf-s. Yfhen you add to this number the rep teams' league games and all the exhi b i t i o n s throughout the season the total runs nearly to 1.000 games, all supervised by vol- unteer workers from the as- sociation. Constantly on the lookout for ways 10 improve play in the association the executive ir.troduc-ed "time hockey" in the Pee Wee ranks. Thus far, it htis proven most succesE- ful. Even- three minutes a buzzer rings and the teams must change players. A rec- ord is kept oa the scoresheet of the time spent on the Ice by each player. Ability has r.o bearing on ihe amount of ice time each player recehes. A marked improvement has been shown bv a number of borderline and first year play- ers under the new system. Only during exhibition games or in tournaments and play- offs will the coach be allowed to ice the team he war.ts ac- coring to ability. Thus giving each player an almost equal share of ice time. The annual Chrisfma? Pea tournament expectations ibis year as .240 br_AS took part in the two-day affair. The excitement gen- erated by the young players greeted by an almost full house for the semi-finals End finals. One game, for ex- ample, went into the fifih, 10-minule overtime period be- fore being decided. A total of 52 hockey garner, give or take one or two, will be played. All tie games, wiih the exception of three or four Southern Alberta Juven- ile League games, vrill be ez- hibitions. Since the start of the 1972- 73 season 27 sets of uniforms have beec donated to ihe as- sociation. V the locals could get a dozen or so more, they would have a complete set. Only one thing is lacking heading into Minor Hockey Week, support. A good many parents have never even seen their son play hockey. They have seen only the outside of the rink through the nind- shield o! their car. The success of the Leth- bridge Minor Hockey Associa- tion lies in the hands of IB men and women and their asr sociated committees outside the executive. To make the 3973 edition of Minor Hockey Week the big- gest and besi ii has ever been the LMEA needs YOU. No one is paying you have to be a parent. There are no restric- tions on fans. So remember, t' you are a father or mo'-her, sisler or brother. BU.-I or uncle, friend or foe "Take, don't send, the yoang man 10 the nut and 5iay and watch him play."
