General Business: Special Resolutions

Special Resolution #1

Be it resolved by special resolution that the Constitution of the Sooke & District Minor Hockey Association be repealed and that it be replaced with the attached proposed Constitution.


The new B.C. Societies Act sets out what must be in the constitution of a society. The Act limits a constitution’s contents to the society’s name and its purposes. The present constitution listed these provisions; however, it also had an unalterable provision dealing with the winding up or dissolution of the society. This unalterable provision has been struck from the proposed new constitution and inserted in the Society’s proposed new bylaws as permitted for under the transitioning process to the new Act.

Special Resolution #2

Be it resolved by special resolution that the Bylaws of the Sooke & District Minor Hockey Association be repealed and that they be replaced with the attached set of proposed Bylaws. The new Bylaws shall take effect when the Association’s transition application has been accepted by the B.C. Registrar of Companies.


Transitioning over to the new B.C. Societies Act represented an opportune time for the Association to thoroughly review its Bylaws. Rather than amend or refine its existing set of Bylaws, the current executive committee chose to craft an entirely new set. Accordingly, the proposed new bylaws:

  1. remove bylaws which are no longer in use or no longer have relevance;
  2. align with the new Act;
  3. fit with the new or emerging needs of the Association; and
  4. enable the Association to enact policies and policy amendments at the board level to facilitate both consistency and adaptability within its governance framework.

Carly Haggard is once again very excited to announce the Girls Hockey Camp taking place in Parksville, July 30-August 2.

Carly played her minor hockey years in Port Alberni, BC, making the jump to senior women’s AAA hockey at the age of 16, where she attended two Canadian national championships.

Haggard attended Dartmouth College, where she graduated with a major in Sociology and a minor in Psychology. She was a standout player, winning many awards, including, a two time finalist for the prestigious Patty Kazmaeir Award, given to the top player in US College hockey, Rookie of the Year, Ivy league and ECAC Player of the Year and named to the All American Team. During her college career, she was a two sport athlete, playing both hockey and softball. In 2002, Haggard was named the Dartmouth Female Athlete of the Year. Haggard also played for the Canadian Under 22 National Team for three years, where she competed in several international challenges.

After graduation, Carly continued her hockey career and played for the Oakville Ice in the National Women’s Hockey League. During her playing time, she was also an assistant coach for the Oakville Junior Hockey Team.

Carly started the PASS Female Hockey School in BC, where she began to hone her coaching skills. She trained and mentored girls of all ages and levels in their hockey careers. Many of these young players went on to play college hockey.

Combining her two passions for travel and hockey, Carly played professional hockey in HC Lugano, Switzerland, where she was named the league’s MVP both seasons. Carly led her team to two league championships and two appearances at the European Cup championships.

After retiring, Carly began her coaching career. Haggard did two seasons as an assistant coach with the University of Guelph Gryphon’s women’s hockey team. Carly took over as the interim head coach for the 2011-12 season, where they had the best record in school history with 18 wins. She now is the head coach for the Shawnigan Lake School female prep team that competes in the CSSHL, one of the top leagues for midget age players in Western Canada.
