OMHA INKS 14-YEAR-OLD GOALTENDER TO DESIGN WEB SITE

The Ontario Minor Hockey Association is pleased to announce that they have signed a web development contract with Cyberteks Design to redesign the OMHA web site. Cyberteks Design, a Division of Cyberteks Systems Corporation, headquartered in London, Ontario, with sales offices in New York, Washington, Maryland, Virginia, Florida and Michigan provides E-Commerce, Web Design, Web Hosting and Marketing services. The company's President, CEO & Chief Creative Director is internationally recognized and award-winning designer, 14-year-old Keith Peiris of London, Ontario.

When asked why he wanted to work on the OMHA web site Keith said "I love to design hockey related websites. Hockey is one of my main passions. I wanted to design a very high-tech user friendly, interactive website that will attract all minor hockey players, parents, officials, coaches, referees and corporate people. The OMHA is a very high profile organization in North America. This is great for me personally, my company and most importantly to other young entrepreneurs."

The OMHA web site was introduced in its current format in December 1999 and it is now ready for a fresh look, improved site navigation, updated content and some new features like interactive games.

"Our decision to select Cyberteks Design was based on the quality of their service offering and we were extremely impressed with their comprehensive portfolio of websites -- not to mention the talents of 14-year-old Keith Peiris and his fresh approach" said Richard Ropchan, Executive Director of the Ontario Minor Hockey Association. "Keith is not only the youngest, but also one of the best web designers we have seen. We are very confident that he will design a state-of-the-art website that reflects the OMHA's forwarding-thinking philosophy," said Ropchan.

Keith Peiris designed his first web site at the age of 10 and has won several web design awards and recognitions from top professionals in the industry for his work. Keith started playing hockey when he was 8 years old and currently tends goal for the South East London Major Bantams. Keith is on the ice 8 to 10 hours each week as he also takes part in practices with the Lucan Irish Jr. D team, Alvinston Flyers Jr. C team, Strathroy Rockets Jr. B team as well the London Knights Major Junior A team, one of his company's many clients.

Keith is one very busy 14-year-old, designing web sites for large customers from all over North America (including Interep, the largest Radio Advertising Agency in the United States; KEWL Threads, a Hockey Apparel company founded by Shayne Corson & Darcy Tucker; Rogers Television; London Knights Hockey Club; University of Western Ontario; Radio 20:20 of New York; and now the OMHA) and an active hockey schedule, Keith has managed to maintain a 94% average in Grade 9 at Regina Mundi Catholic School in London.

When asked how he manages to juggle so many activities so well, Keith said "I work hard and manage my time very well. Furthermore, I love all three things I do."

Keith's goals and aspirations include making his way through the junior hockey ranks right up through to the NHL, while at the same time establishing Cyberteks Design as a world leader in New Media Development.

In February 2001 Keith was a member of the Team Canada Trade Mission and he had the opportunity to meet the Prime Ministers of Canada and China. He was also a VIP guest at the home opener of the London Knights this year at the brand new John Labatt Centre along with Darryl Sittler, the Mayor of London Anne Marie DeCicco and the Commissioner of OHL David Branch.

About OMHA - The Ontario Minor Hockey Association, now the “Largest Minor Hockey Organization in the World” is the result of many years of hard work by men and women sincerely interested in the welfare of the youth of Ontario, and in the game of Hockey, Canada’s National Winter Sport. The OMHA, as it exists today, is the result of the amalgamation of two such groups of sports enthusiasts. While the Ontario Juvenile Hockey Association formed in 1935, was struggling through its first years of existence, another similar organization, known as the Ontario Midget and Bantam Hockey Association was operating for the benefit of youth in the province. Amalgamation of the two bodies resulted in the formation of the Ontario Minor Hockey Association in 1940.
