1 - Ryan 2010 Squirt Snowbelt Player

Background
I have been coaching one of IP, Mites & Squirt Snowbelt for the each of the past 6 years, and I've served as the Director of Referees for the past 4 years, as well as serving as an at-large member for one year prior to that.

I have been refereeing youth hockey since 1981 (with one 2 year break in early 90's), and have been playing hockey every year since since 1970 (except for my "PeeWee" years)

I have been managing the Valley Sock Warehouse for the past year, and have been managing the available jerseys numbers since Valley transitioned from the old Bruins-styled V-jersey to our current Valley Eagles Jerseys.


Goals
Continue to manage the Jersey Number/Sock Ordering processes for the organization, and ensure that the interests of all families are considered by the VYHA Board.

ValleyParent
I have 2 children at Valley; My youngest son Jonathan is on the 12u Snowbelt white team team and my oldest son Michael was in the 16u Split season team and the 18u snowbelt team this year. I also have an 18 year old daughter who is very involved in performing arts

Background
I have been with the Valley family for 9 years, and my family and I have loved every minute of it. During the 9 years i have been a team manager, an assistant coach, the kitchen coordinaor and the VYHA Secretary for the last 4 years. I would like to continue to be involved with the board as an at large board member

Goals
I would to see this organization grow and I truly envision that Valley Hockey being known as the best organization in the CNY area. With the right people representing the face of the organization as well as representing the parents and children who come to Valley hoping for that great experience, I know that that culture is achievable and I look to continue to build on the already strong foundation as I've seen when I first came to Valley. It has continued to grow during my time here as well. I've met some great people who are committed to Valley and your children's happiness and success. I want to make sure that the focus of the organization is in striving to make sure the kids have fun, first and foremost, and are excited every time they put on the Valley colors. Focusing on fun, while developing their individual abilities, and focusing on teamwork and team-building which I feel will help them both on and off the ice in their lives' in the future as well. I feel these are the best ways to keep kids and the wonderful families coming back every year. I want there to be 100% transparency between the board, coaches, and parents so that what is going on within the organization, as a whole, is communicated effectively so everyone is aware of what?s, where?s, how?s, and whys in the organization.

Additional
As most everyone who has met me at the rink, or even away from it knows I absolutely love Valley and I am positive that I will continue to be with Valley for many years to come. I am committed to making Valley the best organization it can be, not only for me and my children, but for yours' as well!!

IP


Background
I have been with the valley Family for 9 years. I have players in just about every age group 16u , first year bantam, first year squirt, a mite and an IP some snowbelt , some travel as well as being a team manager myself . So I have lots of different insight and perspective on how things work.

Goals
As a mom of so many and many different age groups I hope to be able to offer insight and represent all the different groups that fall under the valley roof as others may not see or have lost track of now that their child is in a different place within valley. I have both travel and house players so can fairly represent both groups. I just want to offer help in anyway I can for the great sport of hockey that my kids so love .
