Hello WYHA Parents, Coaches, Managers and Supporters
I hope everyone is having a fantastic summer. I also hope you are enjoying time away from hockey, pursuing other activities or interests. However it is time to start thinking about the logistics of the upcoming season, especially as WYHA transitions towards USA Hockey's ADM Model. Attached is the WYHA ADM outline, please look it over and contact me with any questions. In order to make this program successful we will all need to be more engaged and focused on asset utilization as well as data collection so that our players' development and fun are maximized. Ice and coaches will need to be used differently than in the past and all parents and managers will be asked to share in new responsibilities.
WYHA is also looking to fill a few key positions that are pivotal for the success of this program. We will need:
ADM Coordinator - This individual will oversee the WYHA ADM program and assist all teams and level coordinators on and off the ice with the transition to Webster's version of USA Hockey's ADM. They will be responsible for scheduling the coaches for the development or team practices. This candidate will need to have a hockey background and be knowledgeable about USA Hockey's ADM program. It will require 2-3 hours a week for the first half of the season and should back down to 1-2 hours a week after that. This is a temporary position designed to help the organization transition to our new program and will be supported by the ACE Coordinator, all the Level Coordinators and all the coaches.

During the second weekend of the Boulter Tournament, WYHA awarded Salvatore Latore the Grant Lintala Sportsmanship award. Salvatore has been playing hockey for five years, and according to his coach, Bradley Bulger, Salvatore shows up to play with a smile, always gives his best, and demonstrates sportsmanship.
The Grant Lintala Sportsmanship Award is given out annually at the Boulter Tournament. This is a very important award for WYHA and all the people who knew and loved Grant. Grant was a Webster youth hockey player at the PeeWee level who died suddenly during the 2002 season from a rare form of strep. He was a player who exemplified the meaning of sportsmanship. He loved hockey and life!
