Mike Weber Camp 2014

Dear hockey families,
My name is Michelle Stillings and I have been serving on our youth hockey board since 2011, coached our 2013-2014 ADM Mite team, and filled various other team roles.  In addition to my work with the Youngstown Area Amateur Hockey Association, my husband has been involved in coaching and both of our children have been playing hockey in Youngstown.  During this time, we have gained lifelong friendships and great memories and plan to have many more of both.
As we enter the 2014-2015 hockey season, I would like to inform you that I have been appointed by our board to serve as president of YAAHA.  I would like to thank the board for entrusting me with such a large responsibility, and at the same time I would like to thank our former president Bob Gray for all of the hard work and energy that he has put into every past season.  Until you sit on the board, it is very difficult to understand the time, effort, and energy that all the people put into serving and running an organization.  A huge thank you to our existing board and to our coaches for all of your hard work past, present, and future.
With that being said, we are quickly approaching the start of our new hockey season and are looking forward to a great one.  I strongly encourage all of you to get involved, even if it is in a small way: YAAHA is always looking for support at the board level, various committee levels, and at the team level.  Our organization runs on volunteers and we need you to help YAAHA run and grow; without all of you and your efforts the jobs cannot get done.  Please join us for a meeting with our board this Thursday, July 17th at the Magic Tree at 6:30 to discuss how you can support our organization.
Again, we need YOU and your help to make this an amazing season!
Thank again for your time and I look forward in seeing many of you this Thursday, July 17th at 6:30.

Where does bodychecking fit in minor hockey?
Ban on hitting until the age of 13 a smart decision, though danger looms when the bodies start to fly.

When Hockey Canada announced in late May a ban on bodychecking until the bantam age group, I wasn’t sure what to think. That’s because I can appreciate both sides of the argument.  More More
