BENCH STAFF
We need Local League coaches and bench staff.  Many hands make light work. With a good team of parents, working on and off the ice, and we can provide our athletes a wonderful hockey experience.  If you are interested in helping please contact Brent Hole (Coach Coordinator) and/or Melissa Shibley(Local League Coordinator).
 
This year we are going to arrange for some of our “experienced" Managers/Coaches to help some of our “new” staff.  Simple tricks of the trade like iPads, booking tournaments, running the sound system etc.
 
 
SOCIAL MEDIA
We need your help.  We are looking for some tech savvy parents who want to get involved organizing our web and social media presence.  There is an opportunity to do some great things here, we just need some people with some know-how and time.  Please contact Jeff Peck if you are interested
