To the Membership of Southland Hockey Association

 These are very challenging times for small hockey associations in Calgary.  While some areas of the city are experiencing significant growth in population and participation, older neighbourhoods are not.  This disparity compels us to look for ways to equalize and stabilize our numbers in order to continue to deliver an effective program. The future framework of Hockey Calgary will require substantial changes in our boundaries and overall size in order for us to give our children the best hockey experience we can.  In this regard, we would prefer to control our own destiny and as a result, we have worked throughout the year on various options and have had many discussions with multiple parties.

 We have entered into an agreement in principle with Shaw Meadows Hockey Association to amalgamate and form a new hockey association.  In the end, we came to the table with several ideas and principles which we felt were important to Southland and they were successfully incorporated into the process.  We are drafting a formal Amalgamation Agreement and will look to a special meeting in order to approve it as a special resolution.


* Note Change UPDATED MAY 21** 

  The special general meeting is scheduled for 7:00pm on May 28th at 


The Delta Calgary South  

Nakiska Ballroom in the Atrium Building

135 Southland Drive S.E. Calgary, AB T2J 5X5

P. 403-278-5050

The Nakiska Ballroom is directly to the right after entering the Atrium Building.

 

The Special Meeting will be held at 7pm followed by our AGM at 8pm.  

The proposed special resolution is as follows:

 Be it resolved that Southland Hockey Association enter into an amalgamation agreement with Shaw Meadows Hockey Association under the provisions of the Province of Alberta’s Societies Act within the Revised Statutes of Alberta 200 Chapter S-14 and the amalgamated association will participate in Hockey Calgary activities as a member association beginning in the 2015/2016 season.

A meeting of the new association will follow on June 4th at a location to be determined.   

Thank you for your patience and attention in this matter.  It has been a long and complicated road but we truly feel that we’ve made the best move for the membership, for the future, and most importantly for our kids.

The official attachments are included below.

 
Sincerely,

Jamie Marshall


 
Announcement

 

SOUTHWEST CALGARY, AB., May 6, 2015 – Southland Hockey Association (SHA) and Shaw Meadows Hockey Association (SMHA) are proud to announce that they have entered into a definitive agreement that will see their hockey associations and all operations merge into a new single entity.  This combination reflects both associations’ commitment to providing an excellent environment for player development, competitive teams and a great hockey experience for all members.  This merger will take effect immediately and will be implemented for the upcoming 2015/16 season.

 

This merger was in line with Hockey Calgary’s boundary review and vision of association development.  Both organizations would like to thank Kevin Kobelka, Executive Director Hockey Calgary, and all Hockey Calgary members for their time and support through this exciting development.

 

As part of the merger agreement a new Board has been designed and implemented.  Outlined below are the Executive changes:

 

·        SHA President Jamie Marshall will transition to Director of Coaches of the new entity

 

·        SMHA President Stacey Warren will transition to Past President of the new entity (Past President serves as a key resource and council to the Board)

Southland Hockey Association and Shaw Meadows Hockey Association would like to thank Mr. Jamie Marshall, Mr. Stacey Warren, Mr. Joe Strang, Mr. Mike Nicholas, Mr. Scott Anklewich and Mr. Chris Mealin for their large amount of time and dedication in bringing together this merger.

Re:                   Association Merger – SMHA & SHA

CC:                   HC Board

 

Over the past 2 months Hockey Calgary has engaged the membership in reviewing the boundaries within the city of Calgary (zone 9).  The associations of Shaw Meadows (SMHA) and Southland (SHA) have been very active in this process, and we appreciate their support in determining these very difficult decisions.

 

The overriding goal of Hockey Calgary in this process was to ‘continue to develop an environment where every player in the City of Calgary has an equal opportunity to develop their skills’.

 

At the same time we focused on the following criteria in assessing the situation:

 

-        Improve access to ice for all members

-        Reduce size gap between small & large associations

-        Optimize travel time for all members

-        Improve competitiveness across associations

-        Grow the game

 

Considering these factors, Hockey Calgary has worked closely with both associations, and determined that the best solution moving forward is as follows:

 

-        The Shaw Meadows Hockey Association and the Southland Hockey Association will merge into a new single entity beginning in the 2015-2016 season

 

These decisions have been very difficult and we realize they will affect some families to a greater extent than others.  In making the decisions we had to balance the individual needs of the hockey associations, the parents, the players and the communities with what we perceive as a better environment to play hockey in moving forward.

 

While we believe this is the correct decision for Hockey Calgary and the affected Associations, we also realize that change does not come without challenges.  In the upcoming months we will work closely with both associations (the new entity) to ensure the transition is smooth.

 

Many details are still to be worked out, but please see the attached joint announcement from SMHA and SHA regarding the agreement and some preliminary decisions.

Once again we thank you for your support and look forward to working with everyone to make this transition as seamless as possible.

 

Regards,

Kevin Kobelka

Executive Director
