Point Edward Minor Athletic Association wishes to extend sincere thanks to each
individual who took the time to vote, offer feedback and lend support during the
rebranding process. We were thrilled
with the excellent response, receiving a whopping 153 votes.
We heard from players, parents, coaches, alumni players, community members, volunteers, Village Council, and the mayor. Our web administrator calculated votes electronically with names/IP addresses cross referenced to ensure fidelity to the process. Votes were subsequently, filtered by both logo choice and name.
While we fully understand, change is hard and some particularly passionate folks may be unhappy with the final outcome, we are most pleased to announce, we have arrived at a final resolution.
We believe achieving successful rebranding aligns with our Harassment Policy as well as supports our mission, vision, and values. To that end, please take a moment to review the results of the online voting.

In closing, your board has worked incredibly hard for you…. navigating COVID protocols, start ups and shutdowns, resuming soccer programming and slogging through the rebranding process has left us feeling somewhat depleted. Please be patient and kind to us, we are truly doing our very best, and cannot thank you enough, for the support demonstrated throughout the past few years!
We anticipate a fantastic 2022-2023 season and have exciting plans to celebrate forging our new path forward!
Respectfully, yours in hockey,
PEMAA Board of Directors
