Next board meeting this Wednesday, March 28 7:30 FHIA upstairs room. Please come and join us.
Please check out our new tab “NBC Learn Science of Hockey” where we have posted the short video pieces that have been airing on the hockey channel. NBC has graciously allowed us to post them and we hope that you and your player enjoy them. They are a lot of fun and take principles of science and math and explain them in hockey!! (click here)
CHAMPIONSHIP DAY FUN DAY WAS A GREAT SUCCESS!!
Everyone had a good game of hockey, food, and fun. A huge thank you to Dan Kozoro, Sean Barrett, Molly Brennan, Bill Devlin, and Gary Betke for working all of the games and announcing and handing out trophies, Suzette Gendjar and Matt Lockner for choosing excellent trophies and keeping them supplied to each game, Jamie Betke for organizing and running the raffle table, Janet Arnold for organizing the ref money and running the registrations, Marjann Lawson for helping plan and working the day, and to everyone who helped out by volunteering their time so this event could happen. We also would like to thank all of our coaches who put in many hours behind the scene so that your hockey player will both improve and have fun, the managers who take on the team responsibilities, and especially to all of the parents who spend countless hours driving their hockey player to rinks, sit countless hours in lobbies or stands, and tie countless laces!! We enjoyed having you for the 2011-12 Hockey Season and hope to see you again next year!!
