Thamesford Area Minor Hockey Association

A Message from the President

Good day all TAMHA families,


I apologize for the delay in getting this email configured and in communicating with you all. I am sure you, much like myself, have been inundated with email updates regarding everyday life as well as work changes. There is no need for me to reiterate or explain the reason our seasons came to an abrupt end, but I would like to say how disappointing the end was of what was a great year for most. Suddenly not finding ourselves hanging out at the arena on a regular basis has been difficult enough and now social distancing and/or self isolation has definitely been confusing and difficult for all our players.


OMHA and Hockey Canada has wisely made the decision to cancel all hockey related activities for the immediate future.


This will include both our year end banquet originally scheduled for the 9th of April and our year end AGM meeting originally scheduled for April 16th.


A note regarding our AGM. This is the Annual General Meeting where executive members are voted in to fill much needed positions and we thank outgoing members, many of whom at this period of time have been volunteering with TAMHA for many years, some with children no longer playing in town.


The AGM will be rescheduled as soon as deemed safe to do so.

There is a great possibility that this may not occur until September just weeks or possibly days before the start of next season.

If this indeed is the case it will be all hands on deck to even be able to offer hockey in Thamesford.

Please keep in mind the following positions will need to be filled.


Vice President: During the absence or disability of the President, the Vice President shall be vested with all powers of, and shall perform all the duties of the President. The Vice President shall have such other powers and duties, if any, as may from time to time be assigned to him/her by the Members of the Board.


Secretary: The Secretary shall attend all meetings of the Executive and Meetings of the Members and act as Secretary thereof and record all votes and minutes of all proceedings of such meetings in the books to be kept by them for that purpose. They shall give or cause to be given notice of all Meetings of Members and Executive Meetings and shall keep, or cause to be kept, all books and records required to be kept by TAMHA under governing laws. They shall perform such duties which are usually performed by the Secretary or Honorary Secretary of similar entities. They shall be the custodian of the seal of TAMHA. They shall provide monthly minutes to all Exec members a minimum of 7 days prior to each monthly meeting.


Treasurer:  The Treasurer shall attend all meetings of the Executive and Meetings of the Members and shall apprise TAMHA on a regular basis of its financial standing. The Treasurer shall exercise direct and supervisory powers in respect of: 

Maintaining the custody of TAMHA funds and securities. 

Keeping full and accurate accounts of receipts and disbursements in books belonging to TAMHA.

Depositing of money and other valuable securities or effects in the name and to the credit of TAMHA in such depositories as may be designated by the Executive from time to time. 

Disbursing the funds of TAMHA upon the direction of the Executive and its duly constituted committees and taking proper vouchers for such disbursements. 

Rendering to the President and the Executive at their regular meetings or whenever the President or Executive may require it, an account of the finances of TAMHA. 

Exhibiting to the President and the Executive, upon request, books and accounts kept under his supervision. 

They shall also perform other such duties prescribed by the By-laws or as may from time to time be determined by the Executive, or as are usually performed by the Treasurer or similar entities. They may be required to give such bond for the faithful performance of his duties as the Board, in its uncontrolled discretion may require. 

Upon retirement or removal from office, they shall immediately return to TAMHA all books, papers, vouchers, money and other records or property in his possession or under his control belonging to TAMHA.


Web Convenor: Maintain TAMHA website with updates to and including, scheduling for all teams, meetings, sponsorship. The Web Convenor is not expected to attend all meetings but would be preferred to do so when available.


Police check coordinator: Maintain approved lists of coaches, on-ice helpers, and team officials. Provide police check copies to be filled out by necessary volunteers.


Gate / TimekeeperThe responsibilities of game to game staffing should fall to the team managers. We still need an exec member to oversee, train and manage the gate cash box. These responsibilities need to be clearly outlined to the teams / managers before the start of the season.


If anyone has any questions or concerns please feel free to reach out to me and I will do my best to find an answer or resolution. 

I will send out a shorter updated email as things in the world progress and will communicate when AGM will happen as soon as approval and opportunity allows.


Stay safe and healthy,

TAMHA President

Rob Cowan

In light of recent events, the OMHA Officers have made the decision to immediately suspend all hockey activities. We will be proactive in informing our constituents on all upcoming protocols and required actions as they become available.
