Is there anything we can learn from Whitby's association. They have 3 OMHA golds so far this year.
Is it coaching, player pool, association philosophy???????????????

Whitby pop 122,022

Oakville pop 182,520

Brampton pop 523,911

Hamilton pop 504,559

Whitby has such a small population and doesn't take any imports. How do they do it?
Maybe their population is still mainly white and not brown like the larger centres are becoming?
I'm not being racist, I mention it because of sport of choice. Hockey vs basketball, cricket etc.

And all of those places listed with the larger populations take imports. Whitby has lots of talent who fly under the might G radar. Most chose to stay and play there. A few have left like a few went to Vaughn but found out its not that green on the other side. One was such a superstar in his dads mind that they moved to Vaughan.

...and with a 122,000 population and no imports they field 5 rep teams each year in each age group - AAA, AA, 2 individual A teams (Whitby blue and Whitby white) , and AE. (exception is only 1 A team from Minor Midget up)

They also have a select 7 Tyke team (went undefeated this year 24 -0) a select 6 Tyke team (also undefeated 24 - 0) in the Lakeshore rep tyke league.

They also have a Tyke four team silverstick 6 elite league (5 - 6 year olds) for the next crop of rep/elite players most of which could make some other centres Novice AAA teams.

Is this truly hockeytown Canada?

Whitby is allowing NRP's for their Midget AA team next year....this year they didn't have enough midget players, so they folded their Midget A team and fielded an AE team (instead of an A team) and sandbagged in the YS AE league....didn't work though....they still lost

No 11:56, the A team folded because there weren't enough kids that would play for the a'hole coach they selected and he packed it in, not because there weren't enough kids that wanted to play Midget hockey. Same could happen this year. The kids are now 16/17 and want to have fun playing hockey with their buddies for a good(fun) coach.

We used to living Whitby so I'll throw my two cents worth in. Yes it's a little more white than a lot of places and the median income is fairly high. But I think they tend to do well because the timbit and tyke programs are very well run. The development at the beginning ages is better than almost anywhere else. Hockey isn't everything though, we moved north because. Whitby is getting very busy and very crowded.

Whitby succeeds because of an awesome program. There's no secret potion. It didn't just randomly happen because there are more white kids in the neighbourhood. If it was so, then those north of 7 would be hockey geniuses.

By cleaning their house a little more each year, they have incrementally got rid of most of the nepotism and those who were using the association to take care of their own interests and egos. They started putting controls in place to restrict any one person's ability to "influence" Coach selection, Player selection, and came up with an actual development PLAN that works. We are not talking basic cookie cutter Hockey Canada manual, They go way beyond minimum expectations both on player and coach development. For any association, that's the most difficult first step.

Coach development program is one of the best in Ontario, Player development program that is customized and level appropriate. They start kids from the age of 3-4 years old. They even give new players free hockey gear once a year. That sure gets you into hockey when your parents play cricket or soccer.

They control their own development program from the time the kids are in dippers! They have an awesome intro to hockey program. This is just the beginning. These 6 and 7 year olds in the top tiers will clean house in a few years because they are already well ahead of players from other communities. These kids get more ice time than some AAA teams in other centres.

Kudos to their leadership. They get it. Kudos to the coaches. Its working.

The time these guys must spend on running hockey is ridiculous. . They pissed off lots of people who benefited by the way things were. Say what you want, like it or not, the results show that they know what they are doing.

All that with no imports and many white, yellow and brown kids.

WMHA teams do well despite the board, not because of it. Most board members have a kid playing at a higher level than deserved-same can be said of some coaches kids. The coaches do go through a detailed selection process, background checks done with interviews of top applicants.
Most years board members are elected with little competition-give a quick speach and tell everyone your in it for the kids. Minimum standards should be put in place, pre AGM those wanting election should submit names...that way background checks can be run and candidates with bad history would be exposed.

Its not about population of the city....its about population of registered hockey players. Despite its smaller population, Whitby has an incredible amount of registered players (lots of kids). They have enough that they are able to run minor/major splits at each age group even in house league...most cities have to combine them in house. And from that, you not only get more kids, but a bigger coaching pool ect. Compared to Oshawa, which has a bigger population, Whitby has way more kids playing.

The bubble won't last forever, but its nice while it does. But, you are going to have others wanting in. This is the second year in a row they have had kids play on the minor-midget team that were not really Whitby residents until late in their career. Not much you can do about it. With a successful program, others will do what they have to do to get in.

Oshawa's major problem is there are 3 seperate organizations-OM, OCHL and NASC. Used to be 4 but the CYO is now mostly Whitby residents. That hurts in all areas, and the parents don't feel the competitive pressure as in one big org. Go to a private clinic in Oshawa pre tryouts and the majority of kids are from Whitby.

WMHA Rep Program - Results for 2011-12 Season




Wed Mar 28, 2012 @ 10:41AM



Seems a little early to call WMHA the worlds next hockey super power but "results speak volumes". I have attached how we did this season for your viewing pleasure. Much credit for our growing and continued success, can be attributed to many sources, starting with the Grade A coaching in WMHA. Not only are you top notch leaders, but trainers and mentors for our youth. Much of our success goes to you and your time spent at the rink with the players helping to build on our incredible program.

Coaches need strong leaders off the ice, and this year we made a number of changes to help the teams achieve the levels required for this sort of year end finish. The rep directors, Greg Minicola AAA, Greg Yurkoski AA, Al Sirizzotti A, and James Harvey AE and Tyke. Together they helped every team stick handle around many issues this season.

The development program, Mark Viminitz introduced many changes to the program with a new "coach mentoring" system and player mentoring. I have heard nothing but good things from our membership.

OMHA, Geoff Lyons made many changes this year, reporting, permitting, etc. Many painful deliverables have been turned electronic, making applications, quick, simple and reduced coach/team stress by having an "at your fingertips" application and solution.

The houseleague system which not only provides fun and challenging recreational hockey, but also provides the opportunity for quality call ups and next years potential rep players. Moving forward we will continue to improve on all of our systems to continue to produce home grown winners.

Your board members from all levels and our incredible admin staff (Sandra and Jaclyn) at WMHA do a lot of behind the scenes work so that the teams can hit the ice and not be concerned with the day to day runnings of the association. We thank you for your time.

Congratulations WMHA on an outstanding season.

MP
VP Rep

What the Whitby System has been improving in recent years goes well beyond the expectations for any minor hockey league program. I would say this is how things 'should be done'.

Good work from coaches but more importantly those in executive and board positions to lead this league. They have a huge role in defining, programs, coaches, players, how things are done... Sure looks like it ruffled a few feathers along the way.

Good for you! Don't let the dinasaurs stand in the way of your goals and your progress.

See you at the OMHA AGM, looking forward to a few more of your proposals to be passed to wake up the OMHA.

Keep up the good work.

"Good work from coaches but more importantly those in executive and board positions to lead this league. They have a huge role in defining, programs, coaches, players, how things are done... Sure looks like it ruffled a few feathers along the way."

Careful not to hurt your shoulder patting yourself on the back board member. What a bunch of crap; Whitby succeeds in spite of the board not because of it.

Most of you aholes sit on the board so your kid plays at a higher level than he deserves. Same can be said for a few coaches-that's on the board also as their committee selects coaches. What are the board members qualifications-its have a pulse and raise your hand to volunteer at the AGM. No credentials are required, its not as if a board member must first coach for 3 seasons or know the game from playing at a high level.

More important than the coaches-only in your own mind.

Whitby is a community that believes completely in it's sporting culture and wants excellence, so they invest via the community and with excellent volunteers and coaches and parents and players that are completely committed to excellence.
Other centres just don't value excellence and winning like Whitby does.

What a bunch of whinners and sore losers critisizing our volunteers.

Great coaches don't necessarily work out as board members and board members wouldn't always work out as administrators. Both are valued for what they do best.

Each volunteer brings their own strengths to make our association great. Only those who lack leadership, IQ, and want to blame others for their short comings, whine about volunteers.

Again, that's why you are on here pissing on volunteers and good people are actually helping the program get better.

Please stay on here and don't try to help. You would truly suck! Better yet, move asshole.

Take it from someone who moved to whitby, WMHA is, hands down, the best!

Who selects the coaches in the first place? Who says which programs will be offered and which won't? Who sets the rules for player selection? Saying which is more important is just stupid.

Both are equally as important; to have the best coaches and the best conveners, managers, directors, and just the best volunteers. Doesn't mean that they get everything right all the time- who does? Its how you manage it going forward that matters.

You can have the best coaches and a shitty league which will go nowhere. You can have a great league with shitty coaches and you will also get nowhere.

Whitby has both great from top to bottom and great players. That's the difference!

And they clearly did it without your help or your kid being at AAA.

Guess you just can't handle the truth.

Truth hurts doesn't it love.

Have to wonder just how good WMHA would be with a good executive. Really, jack asses like GY involved and the association does this well.

Good point.

If GY wouldn't be there does that mean that you'd be the jack ass that would take his place and that would make the association better.LOL.

At least we know he won't give his spouse a rep coach job while he's on the board. Bazingaaaa!

Whitby's success is that they develop from within and they have a clear direction of where to take the association. So I guess association philosophy is aligned from top to bottom. That's hard to do in any association with all the egos involved.

Whitby will have two players drafted in 3-5 round and 4 late rounds. Good year for the team but nothing special, no need to rave about how great the program is, also if the program was so great what was the need to recruit from the outside given Whitby's population?

Agree its mostly numbers driving the success. Parents have become very competetive, private courses outside WMH are full-people want their kids playing at a higher level. I see the contrast working in TO- people are amazed Whitby has 2 A teams in the same league.
Co worker is choosing a GTHL A team based on practise night-he doesn't want Sunday night again.

When things go badly, blame the executive for knowing shit and doing shit. When things go well, its numbers and demographics. Too funny.

Hey 9:45, as an executive member shouldn't you be spending more time attending to your duties rather than being on N54, taking responsibility for the success of your organization?

Why is there no screening process for candidates before the AGM? We may attract a higher calibre board member if they know fellow members won't be criminals.

Anyone interested in running should have a background check done prior to the AGM.

Let's be honest TS left Whitby because the WMHA wouldn't let his dad coach the team. The old man was a first rate tool and no one was sad to see him go. The boy sure was a great player though.

Hey 9:20, if I did spend more time jerking off, I would still contribute more to the success of the WMHA than you and the other executive members.

Your dad should have jerked off more. But now I get the joy of toying with an idiot, its always a fun pass time. You may convince me to run for a spot on the board after all. Specially if I can screw your skull some more.

You almost got me 4:48. If it wasn't for your bad spelling and grammar and the fact that you're an illiterate moron, I'd be convinced that you weren't on the board, and just taking precious time out of your day to valiantly defend them. Unfortunately your lack of intelligence gave you away. When's the next AGM so we can vote to keep you on?

9:41 your responses are a lot of fun and its nice to see how easy it is to bring out your true stupidity. You're your bosses bitch at work and your wifes bitch at home. It must be such a miserable life you lead thinking that some day, just maybe, if you play your cards right, somebody will become your bitch. Unfortunately it won't be me or anybody else because I have news for you, if it hasn't happened yet, it won't happen at all. Sorry sad.gif

Probably why half the executive members take on these positions. Tired of getting kicked around day after day and finally they get a chance to be in a position of power and/or influence. Sound familiar 9:41?

Volunteers in Whitby are all great just because they seem to always improve the program. In Whitby the program is good. N54 parents are idiots like everywhere else.

Because the OMHA sin't as tough as the GTHL. So these players stand out playing in that loop. Which explains why this team never wins or does well in any meaningfull tournaments. Therefore most player stats are over blown. Now if some of the OMHA players that play in the GTHL come back to the OMHA there stats would be much higher and they would also get drafted higher because of it.

In other words, the loop sucks!!
