We hope all the players and their families are settling into their teams and the hockey routine. As noted in our President's welcome message this year, the Association is outstanding due to its coaches and volunteers. Many of you have already volunteered on your teams to be Team Managers, Treasurers, Social Coordinators, etc.. and we thank you for that as everyone's contribution is needed to make this Association outstanding.
Off the ice, one of the key items we will be focusing on this year is to continue to grow our Richmond Raven's name in our community to grow our membership going forward. We are working on and finalizing various ideas for this. One of the ideas is to highlight more of our great players, our dedicated coaches and our overall hockey program by showing more "faces" to our Association and showcasing what Richmond Raven's Female Hockey is all about. This will include using a consistent campaign theme which is "I AM RICHMOND RAVENS" / "WE ARE RICHMOND RAVENS".
Therefore, we are CALLING OUT for Richmond Raven players who want to be part of this campaign team (with parent consent). Specifically, this campaign team will be the "faces" to our Association and will allow us to use their individual player photos from the Team Photo Day (Tues. Oct. 24th) for the ideas noted below.
In addition, we may also want to do player profiles on our Ravens website. We hope by showing more of our players and telling their stories, this will put "faces" to our program, create more interest and encourage more Richmond females to check us out and hopefully join our Association. Ideally, we would like at least 1 or 2 players from all levels (Initiation, Novice, Atom, PeeWee, etc..). For those on the campaign team, we will likely ask for extra individual player photos to be taken during their time slot at the Team Photo Day.
If your athlete would like to part of this campaign team and be one of the "faces" of the Richmond Ravens, please e-mail Henry Honda at email@example.com by Friday October 13th, 2017.
