I wanted to send along an intro email before Summer ends and we are all back to school (and the rink!) I am Stacie Mullin, your Mite 4 team manager for this season! I am really excited to be helping out our coaches this year and while I am still getting my bearings, I can tell you my role is two-fold; business and "fun coordinator!" Basically, I'm going to try and take as much off the coaches plates as possible so they can focus on the kids! I'll be coordinating team events, tourneys/hotels, parent-night outs, etc, throughout the season! My goal this year is to make this LOOOOONG hockey season as FUN and seamless as possible for you all!
If I haven't had the chance to meet you yet, my husband and I live here in Waltham and have the set of twin boys on the team, Connor + Keegan. My husband, Kevin, is one of your trusty coaches and our three-year old, Declan, will no doubt be an enthusiastic Mite 4 cheerleader from the stands! ;)
TOURNEY INFORMATION (PLEASE READ AND RESPOND!)
I know we are still weeks away from Summer ending but the Fall Youth Hockey Tournaments are filling up fast! From everything I've heard, these are incredible weekends of team bonding where the kids have a LOT of fun and the parents do, too! There are a few local tournaments throughout the year, too, including one over February vacation in Waltham!
For the fall, our coaches have secured a slot in the Falmouth Fall Classic Tournament November 8-10th, which is Veterans Day Weekend. We are hoping all of our players and their families are interested and available to attend! We have our deposit in and are quickly working on a hotel block in Falmouth! If we have full participation, tourney fees per player are $61 and I wanted to get t-shirts made and pull together a goodie bag for each kid, so asking for a total of $100 per player.*
(*Cost subject to change based on team participation level)
I have a group rate of $135 per night at the Sea Crest Hotel for each night but need to sign a contract to hold the rooms. There are only 15 left on-site (yikes!) so looking to act quickly!... These are a mixture of doubles and King with pullout sofa and this rate includes a discounted breakfast.

WHAT I NEED FROM YOU...PLEASE RESPOND TO THIS EMAIL ASAP!
1) Will your player be attending the tournament? Please include player's name.
2) Will you be needing the hotel block? (TOURNAMENT DATES ARE 11/8-11/10)
I apologize for the urgency but locking in this great rate would be awesome and save me from finding another available hotel for that weekend ;) Another email specific to the tournament will be sent out to participants... This will include how to pay fees and also booking your hotel.
Please let me know if you have any questions throughout the season regarding Mite 4 or specifics about this first tournament, I am available via text, phone, or email! I look forward to a great season!
GO Mite 4!!
