All EV coaches invited!
All EV hockey coaches are invited to watch our EV skating/skills camp in June and or our development camp in July (please check date /times on EVHA website http://www.eastviewhockey.net/summer2015)
We have a great staff running our camps this summer. Dick Emahiser is taking the lead with his staff for our skating/skills and development camps. Dick brings a ton of experience, knowledge and passion for working with young athletes. He is the practice plan guru & one of the best in the state! You will learn ways to maximize the ice and teach specific areas of development. Coach Emahiser’s staff will have Margaret Ann Erwin leading the skating instruction. Margaret will be coming down from her hometown of Hibbing MN where she has been a skating instructor for many great players from the northern part of the state. There will also be 3 high school athletes on Dick’s staff helping out. Pat Westrum will be joining the development camp to teach body contact. Members of our EV PDC will also be present on the ice. Daily practice plans will be available for coaches to follow. The coaching staff will also be available to answer any questions you might have in between sessions. Again, please go watch if time allows as you will benefit by seeing how well organized the camp is and learn some teaching techniques that are so important for our kids development.
A Message from Mike Schoonover:
As one of my last responsibilities as President, I am honored to share with you a few important items as we wrap up the 2014-2015 season:
Teams Successful in District & Year End Tournaments
Congratulations to the following teams for retaining 16/16 fair play points throughout the season:
10UA, 12UA, 12UB, PWB1, PWC, SQA, SQB, SQC-White, SQC-Blue
Player Development Committee (PDC)
Our success on the ice is due to the commitment of our players, coaches and parents. The player development committee (PDC) and the Board will meet and review the season. We will identify strengths and weaknesses and determine the needs of the association. The addition of summer programs, goalie training, and hockey specific dryland/cross fit over the past year has a positive effect on our players. We will continue to evaluate and adjust accordingly to give our players the best opportunities for success.
We’ve already made an investment for the coming year by purchasing divider boards at Hayes. We now have 2 small rinks which makes it easier for our players to develop with small game activities.
Congratulations to Scott Calvert and Renee Swenson for being re-elected, and to Doug Gross, Jim Moline and Pascal Dalseth on your election to the Board. Welcome to the Board!
Special Thanks to Matt Johnson, Tom Keating and Wade Berglund for their dedication, time and energy on the Board of Directors.
Best wishes to the incoming Executive committee; Dave Leach-President, Brent Cameron-Vice President, Kelly Griffitts-Secretary, and Dave Kisch-Treasurer. Thank you for your leadership!
We are pleased to announce we had 72% participation in the board election. Thank you to everyone who voted.
Year End Survey
The survey is now available via this link: EVHA-Year-End-2015. Please make sure you take the time to fill it for each one of your players. The Board uses the information from the survey at our annual strategic planning session in May. Please let us know what you like and what you do not like. We’ve made changes based on survey results in the past. The survey will be available until mid-April.
It’s been an honor to be able to serve as President of EVHA. We are fortunate to have so many dedicated parents, volunteers and supporters. I’ve been told so many times from others outside the association that EVHA is one of the most respected associations in the State. That is quite a compliment considering the quality associations in the State.
Thank you for everything you’ve done to support our family and honor Patrick. We are forever grateful and truly appreciate everything that’s been done on our behalf.
Have a great summer!
Power Skate and Puck Handling clinics start tomorrow morning! Are your skates sharpened?
The first year of 3rd grade girl mites was a great season! The girls participated in the Lakeville/Westwood Turkey Cup, Woodbury Jamboree, Bloomington Mite Jamboree, as well as scrimmaging neighboring U8 teams. A highlight of the season was when the girls scrimmaged at intermission at a Gopher Women’s Hockey game, and met co-captain Rachael Bona after the game!
