5 Female players within AVMHA are on the North Island Impact Team that are heading to the Midget A Female Provincial Championships in Penticton later this month.  They will be defending their title as BC Champions from the 2013-2014 Season.

 Coach of the Year – Kelly Clydesdale

Coach of the Year - Kelly Clydesdale

Coach of the Year – Kelly Clydesdale


Kelly is a newer coach within our association.   He started coaching with AVMHA when his children decided to join hockey late.  He usually coaches 2 teams every year if needed.  This year he coached a PeeWee house team and a Midget house team.

Due to an accident a few years ago, he suffered a major injury and was unable to come out onto the ice and coach for a good portion of that season.  However, this did not deter him and he continued to support the kids and coaching staff.  He did this from the bench whenever and wherever he was able to.  He continued to coach.

He is a very committed and dedicated coach.  He is a very patient coach (except when it comes to his own kids… but most coaches are like that and he even admits that he’s tougher on his own kids.)  He loves to teach the game of hockey and he’s  always thinking of new ways to get the kids motivated.  He is all about having fun and working as a team.  Parents love him and the kids love him.

I (Meranda Vallee) had the pleasure of coaching with him this year and he took the time to ask me questions and my thoughts, views and opinions.  He’s a great teacher.  He treated me as an equal, even though I could barely skate and had just completed the coaching course this year.  The man does have a lot of patience.

Kelly received the most nominations from the membership for “Coach of the Year”.

Volunteer of the Year – Gen Connell

Gen Connell, left with AVMHA President Meranda Vallee

Gen Connell is a newer person within our Association.  She took the initiative to step up and help out wherever she could as soon as her first child was in Mites, a couple years ago.  She was a team manager in Novice last year and she took on the role of Division Manager for the Novice Division this year.

Being a Division Manager is extremely hard work.  It requires dedication and a lot of patience, especially while trying to manage a Division with an odd number of teams.  She had 3 teams to manage.  Being a Division Manager includes managing equal ice times, managing/organizing the coaches, the parents, organizing the referees for games, setting up games, managing tournaments and the list goes on.  This division held another tournament this year which was a very successful event for our Association and for our community.

Gen dealt with a lot of politics throughout the year, which for such a young Division, has me (AVMHA President) quite worried at this point.  We as parents need to stop and think before we act or react.  We have to remember that this sport is an extra-curricular sport and not the NHL or the pathway to the NHL.  It’s for kids to have fun, to make friends, to get some exercise and to learn the game of hockey.  We have to stop and think of the people who are volunteers and recognize that they are here to help out.  If we don’t like the job and appreciate what they are doing, then we need to shut up and step up to the plate ourselves.

Gen encouraged communication throughout the year.  Communication is huge  in this sport and she recognized that right away.  A quality that some don’t recognize right away or at all for that matter.  She has learned and grown a lot throughout this year and I (Meranda Vallee) can see her continuing to grow within this Association and I encourage her to do so.

Gen Connell received the most nominations from the membership for the Volunteer of the Year award.  Congratulations!


Above & Beyond – Carolynn Scott

2015-Volunteer-CarolynScott-7739Carolynn has been with our association for a few years now and has seen it all.  She has been involved in some way wherever she could in the past, including being a manager.  She then started to help me (Meranda Vallee) when I was Treasurer about 3-4 years ago.  She continued on and then was able to take over the management of our Gaming program from me.  She did up the reports, applications, deposits, keeping managers in line with the rules.  It’s a huge job and there is a lot to know.

Two years ago Carolynn was voted in as Treasurer and has increasingly been growing in that role over her term.  It’s not a position that you can just throw at someone, they have to grow into it.  Hence, why she started learning with me about 4 years ago.  There is a lot to know, there is a lot to learn and it is a job that never stops.

She has also taken steps to further her education, on her own time, so that she could properly fulfill the position.  This position takes a lot dedication, patience, learned knowledge, family time, personal time and being cooped up in an office for hours on end sorting out team accounts, rolling up coins, doing deposits, handing out receipts, doing Ref cheques, calling up parents for overdue fees or bounced cheques… the list goes on and it is usually not all fun.  It can be very stressful and does keep a person awake at night sometimes.  It is a full time job, one that is not paid by the way and one that 99.9% of normal people will not touch.

Carolynn had little to no experience when she first started out with me.  She is now fully in charge of Gaming and totally fulfills the Treasurer’s role with little to no help.  In doing this, she still fulfills her role as an Executive member and deals with a lot in that regard as well.  Her dedication to the Association is proof of her growth.  She is to a point now, that I am very comfortable and confident in her by saying, “OK, you’ve got this.”

Abby Nelson, front left with last year’s recipient, Zakeysha Corey and Female Hockey Coordinator, Eric Gagnon.

Jessica States was born in 1985 (30 years ago).  She was tragically killed in July 1996.  She was a typical PeeWee hockey player when there was not many female players in the association.  She had a passion for sports and loved to play hockey.  This award is presented annually to a female PeeWee player that has the sportsmanship and dedication like Jessica did.

This year’s recipient is Abby Nelson.  This is Abby’s second year playing PeeWee with the PeeWee Bulldogs.  She plays Defence and has been an asset to the team since earning a permanent spot in October.  She rarely misses a practice or a game and is reliable in her position.  Abby gets along well with her team mates.  She always carries a smile and a positive attitude.  Abby focuses on fitness and pushes her team mates to push harder both on and off the ice.  Congratulations Abby!

Local News – AV Times – Midget Dogs win Silver

Midget Dogs return with provincial silver medals

Team advances to second straight B.C. championship final

 2014-AV Midget T3 Team-Island Champions

Two teams very far away from home met in the provincial championship final for B.C. Tier 3 midget hockey and, unfortunately for the Van Isle Ford Alberni Valley Midget A Bulldogs, gold went north west to Terrace, instead of south west to Port Alberni.

The Midget Bulldogs advanced to Friday’s provincial championship game with a 4-2 record through round robin play in 100 Mile House last week.

It was their second trip in a row to the finals – a year ago, they were able to win it all, on home ice no less.

The Midget Bulldogs were one of 11 teams competing at the provincial championship tournament.

They started provincials with a 9-0 win over the host team from 100 Mile House, but fell the next day in a 6-1 loss to Special Information Supplement Terrace.

However, the Midget Bulldogs were able to bounce back on March 18 with a 5-3 edging of North Delta.

The following day, they were back in their dominant form, beating Castlegar 9-2. That win secured the Midget Bulldogs a spot in one of the two semifinal games. However, they still had to play one more round robin game, against Dawson Creek.

Dawson Creek picked up a 5-1 win over Alberni Valley, but the game did not mean anything tangible in terms of the Midget Bulldogs reaching the medal round.

The medal round began Friday evening with the Midget Bulldogs playing their second game that day, this time against Quesnel.

Alberni, though, pulled it off with a 6-4 nail-biting win.

That put the Midget Bulldogs in the Tier 3 provincial championship game for the second time in as many years, and gave the local team, the Island champions, a chance at defending their provincial banner.

However, they could not get by Terrace, a team that was unbeaten and untied in seven games at the provincial championship tournament. The first period of the final was evenly paced and played at a high tempo, with the two teams tied at one goal each after the first period.

Terrace, though, picked up their second goal late in the second period to go up 2-1 into the final intermission.

The Midget Bulldogs could not score in the third, and gave up two more goals to fall 4-1, still earning a provincial medal for the second time in two seasons.

LOCAL NEWS – AV Times – Dec. 16


Documentary created by Alberni student is ready for big debut on Thursday night

13-AV Times 500x50

The work the Alberni Valley Midget A Bulldogs put in last year to win a provincial championship has been matched by the effort of a group of local students who chronicled the team’s season in a documentary.

Now, after approximately 500 hours of film work over 14 months, that documentary, “Underdogs,” is ready to be shared with the public. “Underdogs” will have its world debut this Thursday at 6 p.m. at the Alberni District Secondary School auditorium on Roger Street.

“We’re finally done,” said ADSS student Nathaniel Wynans, who directed the 30-minute, all-access look at the Midget A Bulldogs.

Along with Wynans were three players who were on the team – Jesse Geddes, Connor Gagnon and Ryan Price – who helped edit all of the footage.

Local RCMP officer Scott MacLeod helped co-ordinate the film, find funding for equipment and helped film, as well.

ADSS students Arlene Oldale, Chris Banks and Lucas Bosma created custom music for the film. Andrew Quach and Chris Yeske helped run the cable camera that hung in the rafters of the Alberni Valley Multiplex during provincials.  Dario Corrazoli built boxes so net-cam footage could be used.  Matt Schmidt narrated the film, while Alex Hatt wrote the script.

“I learned a ton,” Wynans said. “I usually work by myself where I do everything, so it was cool to work with a bunch of other people and delegate a bit and get other people’s views and pointers.”

When he began the project 14 months ago, Wynans did not know what to expect going into it.

“I knew we had to follow them and tell their story, but I wasn’t sure how,” he said.

He watched the popular HBO 24/7 all access NHL series to get inspiration. According to MacLeod, the crew shot 1,400 hours worth of footage, and the team of filmmakers had to work through it all.

“We had five or six cameras going at every provincial game, and we had to cut that down to about three minutes per game for all of the cameras,” Wynans said. “We could only keep the best of the best.”

Doors are scheduled to open Thursday at ADSS at 5:30 p.m., and the debut is open to the public, with a by-donation entrance fee.

“We want to celebrate it with the community because it’s about the community,” MacLeod said.

There will also be 25 copies of “Underdogs” available for purchase during the debut. Wynans will be taking orders for more if the demand is there.

All of the proceeds will help enter the documentary in different film festivals.
