Save our staff end politics in hockey
By now we all saw the email this morning that Oshawa Minor as usual did not listen to its members and went ahead with the appointment of Tim Scott as coach, It is a fact that dozens of emails of support for our current staff and against this replacement were sent to the board and as usual Oshawa did nothing. Friends in high places pays off again.
I know for a certainty that I am not the only parent who conveyed to the board that my son will be playing down a level next year if this stays in place. Our kids have barely had a hockey season together yet and my son has clearly benefited from the encouragement and time that Dave Truelove and Chris Ferguson put into our young athletes, This is not the type of coach that out children need, I know that almost every parent on this team voiced these concerns to Jim Jackson, Lynn Jennings and the board and that we should be able to have at least 90% support on this. They cant deny paying members of an association when this is put in front of them.
I've heard many stories of the politics in hockey therefore I wont be putting out there who started this petition in fear of retaliatory cuts but its been something discussed for a few days now, and once we have all this support I will gladly put this towards the correct people.
Give our existing staff a chance to continue the work they put into this!
