General Announcements

Jan. 30, 2014

Assalamualaikum...This message is to notify all Division B participants that Exhibition Games will begin this Friday, January 31st, 2014 at Stewart Ave.  If you or someone else you know want to and haven't joined yet, now's your chance.  If you've been coming out - keep coming!  The teams will be playing together for the first time and Inshaallah The OMMAA Season will finally begin.  Game time is scheduled to be after Isha, around 8:00 PM or 8:30 PM at the very very latest.  Games will consist of Four 8-minute quarters with substitutions at 4:00 of every quarter.  No stop time until last 4:00 of 4th Quarter.  Timings and rules are still tentative.  Please be present Friday for further details. 

Also, I will be taking down orders for jerseys this Friday, so I will need to know what size jersey you would like, name on back (last name in all likelihood), and choice of 3 numbers. 

For participants in Division A - Please come out Friday from 7:00 to 10:30 PM.  You will be asked to stay off the gym floor during Division B games.  I would like to finalize involvement for Division A this Friday InshaAllah.  If you know anyone who hasn't come yet or came once or twice before and is committed to playing, please notify them of our times.  Also, if you're interested in gaining volunteer hours towards completing your high school requirements, this is the time to be involved.  

In regards to the jerseys: If you wish not to apply for fee assistance, you will be required to pay for the jersey by your own means as well as covering your portion of insurance (a nominal fee).  We strongly encourage that all participants at least apply.  Pleaes speak to Program Co-ordinator for any further questions. 

This Friday there will also be a sign-up for OMMAA Ball Hockey and Soccer for those who are interested. Ball Hockey will likely start in April in one of the city hockey arenas.  Soccer will likely be played at either Lions Can-Amera Park (located at Clemens Mills Public School) or Churchill Park (close by Glenview Park SS and Monsignor Doyle Catholic High School).  Again, come out for more information/details. 

And finally one last notice: Brothers, please remember this is an Islamic environment, and as such we should conduct ourselves with the utmost attention to pleasing Allah Subhana-watalla. Please watch your language, dress appropriately, and help others. Be prepared to pray Isha with Jamaat at 7:30PM (tentative - will change throughout course of the year as days become longer). Do not engage in slanderous back-biting or belittlement of any individuals as this will lead to your removal from any OMMAA programs.  

Jazakallah for your time.

Assalamualaikum!
