Head Coach 2003 Huron Perth Laker
Tournament was well run with decent refs...another positive was having all age groups at same arena over the entire weekend. Good to watch other teams play.
2006 Halton Hurricanes Team Manager
First of all thanks to all who volunteered to run the tournament…I know from experience it requires a lot of effort and it was much appreciated. Some specific comments:
- calibre and quantity of teams very good
- given what you know I think you did a good job of "seeding" the pools
- having all games in same location for a birth year is really helpful
- for the most part games were on time and effectively spaced
- reffing is always a challenge and I'm sure everyone can always complain but I thought the refs, with one exception, were approachable and didn't try to be more than they should be
2006 Waterloo Wolves Head Coach
We had a good experience.
2006 Toronto Marlboros Head Coach

I just wanted to take a moment and thank you and all of your volunteers for all the hard work this weekend. We had a great time this weekend and the players had a great experience! I especially want to thank you for taking the extra step and helping us set up the scrimmage with the 02 Reps on Thursday. Could you also pass on to the team that we appreciate their participation in that scrimmage as well. You guys have a class organization and we feel privileged to have the chance to take part.

2013 SHANAHAN WARRIOR TESTIMONIALS
Congratulations on a well-run tournament.
I hope you and your staff received some positive feedback for all your efforts.
Speaking with the other families on our team, people really appreciated not having to pay gate fees.
Also, everyone was really impressed with the referees assigned to the Minor PeeWee game between the Hamilton Huskies and the Wheatfield Blades on Friday morning (Nov. 8). Not because of the final score (that would appear self-serving), but because the referees ran a very clean game and made a point of explaining to the players what the calls were and the consequences.
I'm sure you and the referees are used to fielding complaints. We just wanted to pass along a compliment!
02 HAMILTON HUSKIES
My child had the opportunity to participate in the Shanahan this weekend in the 2001 division. I must thank you for your consideration in assigning a girls dressing room to each rink. It was greatly appreciated, small gesture that went a long way. The tournament was great!!!
SUE SWEENEY - SUN COUNTY PANTHERS

SANDRA SMYTH - 04 YORK SIMCOE EXPRESS
I also want to thank you for the tourney. Although my wife went in my place. She said it was well put together and done up top notch.
MARK ANNEN – '01 DALLAS JR STARS
Hi there. I am the head coach of the Grey Bruce Highlanders AAA 02 Minor Pee Wee team. Just wanted to send you a note on what a great tournament you ran this past weekend. No gate fees, games always running on time, no ref issues, all games played at one arena were an example of how tournaments should be run. You did a fantastic job with the brackets with having all different teams together. We played 4 teams that we would not normally see during the regular season which happens at too many tournaments. Much more enjoyable playing new teams and the kids get a big kick out of playing the US teams. Congrats on a successful weekend.
JEFF GOLDIE – 02 GREY BRUCE HIGHLANDERS
Thank you again for a great tournament and see you next year.
JOHN JUBINVILLE – 01 SUN COUNTY PANTHERS
