Respect in Sport Parent Program—NEW for 2014-2015
May 19, 2014
Starting in the 2014-2015 hockey season, the Ontario Minor Hockey Association (OMHA) requires that at least one parent or guardian of each minor hockey player (18 years and under) registered in the OMHA complete the online Respect in Sport Parent Education Program.
“The Respect in Sport program is an online certification program designed to protect our youth as well as enhance the OMHA's mandate of providing a safe and fun environment for all participants. It is Canada's leading online bullying, abuse, harassment, and neglect prevention program for parents, coaches, and community leaders.”—OMHA
Currently, the Respect in Sport Activity Leader program is a condition of participation for all team officials (bench staff), on-ice volunteers, and on-ice referees. In an ongoing effort to foster a safe and enjoyable environment for our athletes participating in this great game, the OMHA is implementing a plan to ensure the OMHA is a complete respect integrated organization. Before a player can participate in the 2014-2015 season, a parent or guardian of that player must complete the online Respect in Sport Parent program.
Some quick facts:
- 1-hour online course
- Cost is $12.00
- One time only
- Accessed through the OMHA website: www.omha.net
- Enter your child's name when completing the course!
Please note that if a parent/guardian has completed the Respect in Sport Activity Leader program, the Respect in Sport Parent program is different and still needs to be completed.
Thank you for your commitment to the safety, enjoyment, and success of your child in the UMHA and for all OMHA participants.

Unionville Jets Bantam team win NYHL 2014 Tier 1 Title!
The Unionville Jets Bantam team are the NYHL 2014 Tier 1 Champions!
Their season was very successful, finishing 1st place in the regular season. They fought very hard to make it through the semi-finals and again in the championships.
The Jets played the York Mills Hockey Club in the semi-finals with the Jets beating York Mills in the first game 4-2, losing the second game 2-1, and winning the third and deciding game in overtime 3-2. The Jets then moved on to the championship series where they faced the North York Knights (defending champs).
It was a very nerve-racking experience as most of these players had never reached the championships before. The series went to 4 games. The first game the Jets tied the Knights 1-1. The second game the Jets lost 4-2, and therefore, the players had to win game 3 to force a fourth game. The team held it together and beat the Knights 4-3. The fourth game was going to produce a winner. The Jets kept it together to win the Championships 3-1 over the North York Knights.
This is the first time a Unionville Jets team has won a Tier 1 Championship in over 20 years. Congratulations boys!
The boys that contributed to this amazing season were Kevin Attia, Tyler Babin, Mark Bahensky, Sterling Beard, Jack Biggerstaff, Connor Chandran, George Giantsoplous, Chris Glionna, Evan Graf, Austin Jiang, Kyle Lou, Adam Masellis, Evan McKay, Noah Rose, Alex Spada, Michael Spada, Edwin Tam, Michael Xu, and Victor You. The coaching staff are Ken Lou, Dave Glionna, Adrian Chandran, and Manager Mary Jo Glionna.

Unionville Jets Win Montreal Tournament
March 6, 2014
The Unionville Jets Bantam Select Hockey team won the Champlain Cup tournament in Montreal, Quebec over the Family Day Weekend. They were coming off the Richmond Hill Select Tournament two weeks earlier where they lost in the finals to a very strong Kitchener Jr. Rangers team.
Travelling down the 401 in a winter storm, the Jets went straight to the arena but came out flat. They managed to eke out a 1-1 tie with the Brossard Dynamos in their first game.
Saturday brought a victory over the Ajax Knights by a score of 12-0 and a close loss to the Sorel-Tracy Mariners 3-2. This led to them advancing to the Championship Game where they played the Mariners team again.
In the Championship Game, they faced a talented, big and fast team, but that did not faze them at all as the Jets just kept battling right until the final buzzer. They got goals from Noah Rose and Mark Bahensky to win 2-1 and bring the trophy back to Unionville.
Other goal scorers throughout the tournament were Alex Spada, Evan McKay, Austin Jiang, Michael Xu, Tyler Babin and Evan Graf.
The goalies, Kevin Attia with a shutout, and Sterling Beard who was named Tournament MVP provided strong support and played amazingly well.
Other players contributing to the victory were Kyle Lou, Adam Masellis, Michael Spada, Connor Chandran, Edwin Tam, Jack Biggerstaff, George Giantsopoulos, Christopher Glionna, and Victor You.
The team was supported by Head Coach Ken Lou and assistants Adrian Chandran and David Glionna. Congratulations boys!
Unionville Jets Novice Team hoists the Stanley Cup!
February 27, 2014
Scotiabank sponsors minor hockey teams across the country and the Unionville Jets Novice team was lucky enough to secure a sponsorship through Michael Tam, the branch manager at Markville Mall. As part of that support, the bank also has a program where they surprise teams that give back to the community by bringing the Stanley Cup to a party, practice or game.
About a month ago, the Unionville Jets Novice team participated in a tournament in Toronto. Players and parents were asked to help with a food drive at the tournament. The response was so overwhelming that the Novice Jets Head Coach, Chris MacDonald, sent a note to Scotiabank to let them know how proud he was of the team and the Unionville Jets program in general, for all the work they do in our neighbourhoods and communities.
Scotiabank responded with a note saying that they would bring the Cup, on one condition: it had to be a secret! A “pre-playoffs pizza party” was set up at Angus Glen for February 26th. See what happened.
Major Atom Jets Winter Classic
February 13, 2014
Last November the Scarborough Ice Raiders invited the Unionville Major Atom Jets to participate in a “Winter Classic” game at Kew Gardens, Toronto. After a forced cancellation due to the December ice storm, the much anticipated game was held on Saturday February 1.
While north of Toronto it was snowing, in the city it was raining but nothing could dampen the spirits of the players or families! Even some of the Jets family dogs were out to enjoy the evening and watch the game. Arriving at the park, the Jets were welcomed with a bonfire, hot chocolate and a very welcoming Scarborough Ice Raiders team.
After proudly singing our National Anthem, the game got underway. As the game went on and the rain continued, the ice conditions made it challenging to skate and get the puck moving. Even that couldn't’t stop this game and after 3 periods the Jets maintained their lead to win.
Thank you to the Scarborough Ice Raiders for the invitation to participate in the “Winter Classic” and for your hospitality. This event is definitely a highlight from our 2013-2014 Season!
Unionville Jets Soar at Tournaments!
The Unionville Jets have been flying high at tournaments lately! The Unionville Jets Midget Junior Team won the Amesbury/Bert Robinson Winter Classic which took place in North York January 17 to 19, 2014. Following in their footsteps, the Unionville Jets pulled off a triple crown when the Minor Peewee, Minor Bantam and Minor Midget teams each won the Championship in their division at the Leaside Tournament which ran from February 6 to 9, 2014. Congratulations goes to all of the players and coaching staff for their success in these tournaments.
GO JETS GO!
Atom Jets Help Yellow Brick House
January 4, 2014
The Major Atom Jets wanted to make a difference to those in need as part of our Christmas event. The team participated in a Secret Santa gift exchange with the gifts being collected and donated to the Yellow Brick House.
A number of families went beyond this giving, with some engaging extended family and friends to help drive the effort. This allowed us to collect and donate not only toys from the gift exchange but also a generous amount of items that are urgently needed at the Yellow Brick House.
An SUV packed full of items was delivered to the Yellow Brick House on December 15th. Thank you to all of the families that helped make a difference in the lives of people in need.
