Road Closure at James St and Russell Road Shouldn’t Impact KVHA Members
The City of Kent will be closing James St and Russell Road just west of the Kent Valley Ice Centre starting Monday, March 23rd 2015 with a scheduled reopening on Monday, June 1st 2015, all weather dependent. The City will be completing road and levy work on the corner where James St turns south onto Russell Road at the Green River. This shouldn’t be a problem for KVHA members as access to the Kent Valley Ice Centre parking lots will not be blocked at any time during the project.
Click here for a map of the proposed work and a detour around the project. We are told that the City will construct speed bumps on the detour route to control the speed of traffic. Thank you for your patience!

2014/2015 Coaching Evaluation Forms – We Need Your Feedback…
We did this last year and about 9% of you responded; not exactly the kind of participation we were looking for. However, we’re going to give it another shot this season and see if we can get better participation.
The Coaching Evaluation form is read and reviewed by the Hockey Director. The purpose of the form is to help us determine future coaching positions and to use your suggestions to help improve our Kent Valley Hockey Association. Individual coaching evaluations will not be shared with coaches. However, they will be notified of the average rating that they receive and any specific comments that need addressing. Confidentiality will be maintained.
