50th Anniversary Gala and Alumni Game
Current members, alumni, coaches and kids came together on July 18th to celebrate our 50th anniversary at the Pasadena Sheraton, and had the pleasure of hearing Daryl Evans (LA Kings legend) and a host of other distinguished guests recount stories about hockey in SoCal, and the history of the Maple Leafs organization. A mere 16 or so hours later, kids and old men alike laced them up to celebrate the anniversary the most fitting way - on the ice! Were you there and wished you'd taken more pictures? Did you miss it, but don't want to totally miss out? Well, you're in luck! Our friend Mike Palmer from Just Picture That photography was on-hand to memorialize every moment, and now you can view/buy his photos online!

New SCAHA Registration/LOI Process
SCAHA has revamped its online site and changed the LOI process to be online-only for the 2014-2015 season! You should have already recieved an email from the iSCAHA Development Team with information on how to log into the site and register for the 2014-2015 season.
An important concept you need to be familiar with is the Season Pass, which is your single-code-number access to all events and tryouts for any SCAHA member club. Clubs will be able to use this pass code to reference your USA Hockey registration number, your contact information, and the club/team you play on - all without requiring you to put pen to paper once. You will receive your season pass code after completing the registration process on iscaha.com, and you'll need to bring that number with you to tryouts this summer. No paper LOI's will be used at all this season - you will sign the LOI online only, using your season pass code.
Why did SCAHA do this? To start with, this process will replace approximately 4,000 paper LOI's (in triplicate!) and eliminates the cost of producing, filling out, gleaning data from, scanning, faxing, and e-mailing them to the SCAHA support staff. If you conservatively assume that each LOI consumes about 30 minutes of human life in its journey through SCAHA, that's 2,000 work-hours that the dedicated people who keep our youth hockey programs running can devote to helping building better programs instead of shuffling papers. That, in a nutshell, is why they've pioneered this new digital LOI process...any why all of us are so excited about the efficiency it brings.
And, of course, the standard disclaimer for any cutting-edge, state-of-the-art system: there WILL CERTAINLY BE at least some kind of minor technical issues as they ramp up. If you come across any problems during the registration process whatsoever, please e-mail as much detail as you can about them to the iSCAHA team at
. They are committed to helping resolve technical issues within one day, so please work directly with them with any issues.
The iSCAHA team's goal is both vetting this new system thoroughly AND making sure you can successfully register your family and get your 5 digit Season Pass. Once you receive your Scaha Season Pass number, you are ready for this season's tryouts - no matter what club you go to and what tryouts you attend.
New Executive Board Members
PML members voted in two new Executive Board members at our annual banquet on April 25th; we're excited to welcome Nancy Kemp and Jeff Koontz to the board, and are excited that they've volunteered their energy and enthusiasm to helping move the club forward through 2016!
We also want to express our deepest gratitude to our two departing board members, Lilly Lieu and Susan Kovinsky.
Lilly and her family have been involved in helping run PML for the better part of 15 years, and she has devoted countless hours over that time to helping us successfully navigate an era which has seen a sharp decline in the presence of smaller, non-profit clubs. Lilly has had the joy of watching all three of her boys play as Maple Leafs over the years, and now they get the joy of yelling at her to SKATE!!! as she continues on as a Leaf...as a member of our women's team.
Susan Kovinsky joined the board in 2012, and has done a tremendous job as our treasurer over the past two years to help solidify the financial health of the club. Everyone knows that volunteers in a non-profit organization do way more behind the scenes than a single title can convey, and Susan brought the same positive energy to all of the countless other thankless tasks she did that she brought to the tough job of handling the club's finances.
