NOTICE OF ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING

NOTICE OF

STRATHCONA COUNTY MINOR FOOTBALL ASSOCIATION

ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING (“AGM”)

Thursday October 25, 2018 @ 6:30pm

Millennium Place Activity Room #3

2000 Premier Way, Sherwood Park, AB

The Strathcona County Minor Football Association (SCMFA) is an independent, registered, self-governing Alberta Society.  As such, it is entirely and solely responsible for its own operation as an Association within the Capital District Minor Football Association. In order to offer a successful football program for our Novice, Atom and Peewee teams, the Association has to rely on the volunteer support of its members (primarily the parents of its registered players) and the volunteer support of its Executive, coaches and other on-field volunteers.

This year’s operations are well under way but the Association needs to prepare for next year.   

The Bylaws of the Association require that:

  • The AGM shall be held once per season, on or before November 30th. 
  • Written Notice of the meeting shall be distributed to all members twenty-one (21) days prior to the meeting.

A minimum number of members from each team in the Association must be present at the Annual General Meeting for voting purposes (quorum). To meet quorum requirements, a minimum of 10 voting representatives (excluding Executive) from team levels: Novice, Atom and Peewee must be present at the AGM.  To comply with SCMFA Bylaws  (2014-01-06), one vote per player shall be allowed, regardless of the number of parents attending the meeting; therefore the required representation must satisfy 10 voting members per team level.

  • All members eligible to vote at the Annual General Meeting must register upon arriving at the Meeting. A registration sheet shall be provided for this purpose. This sheet shall be configured in such a way as to enable the Secretary to ensure that the names of those members who are in good standing and are eligible to vote are cross-referenced with the voter when s/he signs in.
  • New and returning members of the Executive shall be elected by members of the Association at that AGM.
  • Nomination for new members of the Executive shall be submitted to the President or Secretary at least fifteen (15) days prior to the date of the AGM.  If no written nomination is submitted for an Executive position then nominations from the floor may be accepted.

Wolverines Offer Atom & Novice programs in our community

The Sherwood Park Wolverines have partnered this year with the Fort Saskatchewan Falcons to roll out  a home  grown Atom and Novice Program.  Our 6:6 atom program follows all the principles and systems of the Long Term Athletic Development (LTAD) initiative our district embraced a few years back.  

Our players aged 7 - 9 play for 9 weeks from 9am - 11am every Sunday rotating weekly between our very own Emerald Hills Stadium or in Fort Saskatchewan at their brand new Taurus Field. Due to popular demand, our Novice program will follow this same schedule!

Baseline Concussion Testing - Best Practice!

August 2017 the SCMFA/Wolverines joint venture worked with Elite Injury Management to conduct baseline concussion tests on Bantam and Peewee players that chose to participate in this testing.  Elite Injury Management also provided a separate education seminar for the Bantam athletes and parents to further discuss recognition, return to learn and play as well as discussing any myths or beliefs the groups had in regards to concussions.  
What it is: Concussion baseline evaluations are done typically during the pre-season to establish athletes "normal" for comparative purposes in case a concussion does occur during the season.  Elite Injury Management use the SCAT 5 and Child SCAT 5 which includes evaluation of symptom rating, balance and coordination testing and concentration/cognitive evaluation.  They also used a saccade evaluation which tests eye tracking.  The baseline evaluations are used to give athletes an idea of what to watch for if they do suffer a concussive injury, it also gives health professionals something to refer to if the athlete does suffer a concussion.  

Navy Gold Day


Novice, Atom, Peewee, Bantam all represented!

Fantastic day on the turf for all of our teams, followed by a great family style barbeque! We fed a lot of people! Thanks to all of the families, coaches,  executive and junior volunteers for coming together to make this day a huge success.  Once a Wolverine....always a Wolverine!
