Thank You from Clearwater !

To SOMHA following the successful U15 Recreational tournament held 22-24 Oct 2021:

”Thank you for hosting a very well organized tournament.

The arena logistics were flawless with clean warm dressing rooms, spare pucks available from the Zamboni /rink attendant, dressing rooms for females, on-time referees, music, and tablet organization. On-line TeamSnap communication was so convenient and clear with game results being updated and posted. Officiating was very consistent and well called, great integrity all around by officials. The competition was incredibly close with so many tie games and competitive games. The atmosphere with fans in the stands was very memorable and it wouldn’t have been possible without your organization’s diligence with volunteers and the Covid safety plans that I know need to be in place to allow for events like this.

I hope your organization can take pride in knowing that their hard work and difficult conversations have resulted in great memories and life lessons for kids that would not have happened if it wasn’t for your investment of time and energy put towards this event.

The local hotels and restaurants were great and very accommodating (Coast hotel staff were excellent and that was a very convenient facility).

Our team of players, coaches and parents are very appreciative of this 1st class tournament, well done and thank you. Our organization can have a goal to host tournaments as well as your organization.

Thank you,

Dan von Hollen

Coach of the U15 Clearwater IceHawks”
