Hello Ice Hawk Families,

I hope that everyone is gearing up for a great summer.  We are hard at work putting together some great options for the players into the fall.  We will be adding a lot of information on the website and sharing some updates via email, so please take a look when these items come through. 

  1. SIIH Spring Hockey Update
  2. Summer Skate Options
  3. Fall Evaluation Process
  4. Fall Registration
  5. Volunteers Needed

 

  1. Spring Hockey Update

I wanted to give everyone an update on how the Spring Hockey programs went.  If you had a player in them, thank you.  We have now wrapped up and the kids all had a great time.  Also, we sent out a survey and thank you to all who took the time to fill them out.  We had some great feedback around the programs as well as some future ideas.  Thank you again for helping us shape the organization into something that not only benefits the players but something that we can all be proud to be a part of.  

 

  1. Summer Skate Options

As many of you know, there have been some hurdles with the Recplex.  We are actively trying to work through these, but due to a shortened time frame, we are only going to be able to offer a limited amount of time for pre-skates before tryouts.  Here are the options you will see hitting the website soon.

  1. June:  ICE HAWK ONLY age specific stick and pucks – COMPLETELY FREE – ENJOY
  2. July:  3wk age specific option.  

 

  1. Fall Evaluations

These will be taking place in August, so please keep checking the site for times and more information as we get them solidified.  

 

 

 

  

 

  1. Fall Registration

We are going to try something a little different this year, we will be opening registration earlier on the site.  If you would prefer to see our smiling faces, the Official Fall Registration Day will be July 14th at the RecPlex.  That is right around the corner, so I still hope everyone will stop by to get the ball rolling for the 2018-2019 hockey season.

 

  1. Volunteers

Last, but definitely not least, I know there are a lot of you that have continually offered your time to help the kids grow into better hockey players, and that is truly appreciated.  As the organization continues to grow and we offer more options for the players, we are always looking for and needing more volunteers.  This doesn’t just include coaching a team, there are plenty of other opportunities to help, but we will take you if you would like to help coach too.  Here are some of the events that we need assistance with:

  • Registration Day – July 14th
  • Monster Mash – October 27th-28th
  • Glow Bingo Fundraiser – November 9th
  • End of Season Banquet – usually second weekend in March

 

If this is something you think you would like to do, please reach out to Sarah Mills at 618-322-4103 as she would be more than happy to talk with you.  

 

If you would like to help with coaching, please reach out to Gus Feldker at gfeldker@gmail.com.  

 

Thank you and I hope all of you have a wonderful summer.

 

Sincerely,

PJ Winkeler

SIIH President
