2018-19 SYHA Board Nominations
Dear SYHA Members,
 
I would like to introduce our Nominating Committee for the 2018-19 Simsbury Youth Hockey Association Board of Directors.  Ann Buckley, Rob Martin, Anthony Matteo, Scott Roberts, and I will be working on filling the open board member positions for the upcoming season.  The nominees will be presented to the current SYHA Board on March 13th for approval at the April 10th Board meeting.  An additional goal of the committee will be to look long term on succession in future years.  The Simsbury Youth Hockey organization has been an organization built on volunteer involvement since 1971.  The tradition continues and we ask that if you have an interest in getting more involved with SYHA, please reach out to any of the committee members by Friday, March 2nd.
 
Please join the SYHA Board in saying Thank You to Brandy Forward who has served our organization for the past four seasons and will be stepping down at the end of this session on March 30th.  Brandy joined the Board in 2014-15 as Mite Development Director and transitioned to Master Scheduler in the 2016-17 season.  A critical role to our organization, Brandy’s leadership with scheduling our ice and coordinating our game officials on a weekly basis has been a vital contribution to SYHA.  Thank you Brandy for your time and commitment in this important role!
 
In the 2018-19 season, we have the following Board and Committee roles that need to be filled:
 
  1. House Program Development Director (2 positions open):
    • The Mite Development Director (including First Step Hockey and Hockey Stars) will market and promote the program while acting as a point of contact and liaison for Division program inquiries.  Position includes responsibility for the James Cup Tournament.
    • The Squirt/PeeWee Development Director will market and promote the program while acting as a point of contact and liaison for Division program inquiries.  Some game scheduling required.
  2. Assistant Treasurer -  As a succession planning role, the Assistant Treasurer will support the SYHA Treasurer who leads the overall preparation and management of the SYHA annual budget.  Experience with financial statement preparation, bank account reconciliation, and/or experience with charitable organizations is ideal.  
  3. Director at Large (Coach) - The Director at Large (Coach) represents the coach community on the board to provide insight and expertise in their respective division / level.  Mite or Squirt level coach preferred.
  4. Committee Positions - 2019 Winter Classic, Golf Tournament, Holiday Tournament, and Fund Raising positions available.
Thanks in advance for your consideration to support SYHA!  If you have any questions or would like to nominate yourself or someone else, please reach out to any Nominating Committee member by Friday, March 2nd.
 
2018-19 Nominating Committee Chair

15th Annual James Cup - Sunday, February 18th
The 15th Annual James Cup will be held on Sunday, February 18th at ISCC
 
This cross ice Mite tournament will include players from Simsbury, Avon, South Windsor and Northern Lights
 
The James Cup honors the memory of James Stover, who was a SYHA Mite House player in 2003 when he passed away in a tragic accident.  James's zest for life and happy attitude are celebrated in this "just for fun" tournament, where no scores are kept and everybody gets in on the action on the ice.  
 
A Simsbury player will be awarded the Gary Loftus Award at this event.  This award, given in memory of a hockey parent extraordinaire, recognizes a player's willingness to work hard while maintaining a positive attitude and exemplary sportsmanship.
 
Entry fees and donations from the James Cup benefit the SYHA James A. Stover Scholarship Fund.  Click here to learn more about this scholarship, which provides funds to enable players to participate in Simsbury Youth Hockey, regardless of financial ability.
 
Come to the rink on Sunday to help cheer on all the Mite players!
