LET TONY PLAY HOCKEY sign now

Thank you for your interest in signing our petiution to LET TONY PLAY HOCKEY UNDER IS THE SAME STORY THAT I HAVE SENT TO THE MEDIA THAT HAS RECEIVED ALOT OF ATTENTION I THANK YOU FOR HELPING OUT MY SONS CAUSE HE JUST WANTS TO PLAY HOCKEY WITH HIS FRIENDS AND CLASSMATES ....


I would just like to let people know what I am going through with minor hockey in Aylmer and Shawville.. You see my son is 10 years old , He played hockey in Aylmer last year (it was his 1st year) .This year he was registered in Aylmer again and got placed on his team in Atom B. The other night I received a call from the registrar Mark Martin of the Aylmer Minor Hockey Association (AHMA). He called to tell me my son could not play for the AHMA as he lives in Luskville (9 kms from Aylmer) and that he would have to play for the Shawville Minor Hockey Association (SMHA). Shawville is 49 kms from Luskville. I called Trevor Fraser of the SMHA to see if they could let my son play in Aylmer and explained my situation. He said under no circumstance would they release him and that he would have to play for Shawville and pay the $330 registration fee. In Aylmer the registration fee is $175. So not only would we have to travel 40 kms each way more (80 kms total more) to go to Shawville but we would also have to pay $155 more to do so.


Also what I cannot understand which is the saddest part of all of this is that , My son goes to school in Aylmer and has classmates that play on the same team as my son . This makes it great for him to play with his friends at school as well as afterwards at the arena. But if they make him play in Shawville he knows no one as its not a place where we go for any reason. He goes to school in Aylmer; plays in Aylmer with his friends, plays tackle football in Gatineau. So everyone he is ever in contact with is around Aylmer... Could you imagine what this will do to him emotionally? The only boy in his school playing for a rivalry team . He would be an outcast and could affect him for life.





We are not talking of a competitive hockey team its supposed to be just for fun and exercise. What kind of society would do this to a child? Tell him to play for a team that he knows no one, a team that is his rival, a team that is 49 kms away from his home. And charge him $155 more to do so. All he wants is to play hockey for HIS team in Aylmer that ALL of his friends play for have fun, get exercise. And help boost his confidence in everyday life.





I have also contacted everyone in the Quebec / Ouatouais Hockey circle in Quebec 4 presidents and no one will return my calls or emails. I truly thought that a simple (can my son plays with his friends) could have been enough for them to release him to play with his friends but apparently not. Is this the end of his hockey days? It looks that way. As another problem is the traveling in winter down HWY 148 to Shawville everyone knows it is poorly maintained and is a dangerous stretch of highway. Just another reason why we wont go play there.





So as my letter comes to an end, and I hope it has some impact. And it doesnt fall on deaf ears. I will once again comfort my crying son tonight and explain to him how society has failed him and maybe one day he will be able to play hockey again with his friends.

    This child deserves to play and he deserves to play with his friends and in the town he is familiar with. Why in the world would you have him go any further then he has to to play. He is a child and just wants to have fun so to all you big shots out there
