2015-2016 SEASON REGISTRATION UPDATE

As many of you know, the Watertown Municipal Arena is in the middle of a major expansion and reconstruction project that started in the Spring 2015. We are all very excited with the upgrade to our home rink, however the start of the 2015-2016 Season will have us operating out of our neighboring rinks until construction is completed. The Board of Directors recognizes the challenges that this inconvenience may have on our members. As such, there will be no fundraising fee associated with registrations; and additional adjustments have been made to team registration fees.  See the registration tab for more information.
 

LINK TO SURVEY ABOUT 2015-2016 SEASON

Dear Friends In Hockey, The Watertown Hockey Association is looking for your feedback. We have created a survey to help us plan for the 2015-2016 season. You will need to login to your WHA website account. Only one parent or guardian should reply, as we cannot have players counted more than once. Your feedback will be accepted until July 8, 2015, a week before our next WHA Board meeting. Thank you for taking the time to read this. Your feedback is critical to us, as we are looking for creative and efficient ways to continue with our upcoming season without a guarantee of home ice in Watertown. If you have received this message in error, or are no longer a member of the WHA, please accept my apologies. Thanks so much, Jennifer Harvill

WHA Attains "Gold Status" in USA Hockey's 2 and 2 Challenge

The 2 and 2 Challenge is a call-to-action for local associations. It is a blueprint that guides youth hockey leadership through national programs and tools to realize their goal of acquiring 2 additional players and retaining 2 additional players than the previous season's total. The WHA is proud to have achieved "Gold Status" during last year's 2 and 2 Challenge! Congratulations to everyone that made this possible!


VOLUNTEERS NEEDED

As you can imagine, it takes a tremendous amount of effort and volunteerism to maintain a quality youth hockey program. Our coaches work tirelessly all season teaching the sport of hockey, but there is also considerable off-ice work that needs to be accomplished. The Association invites you to consider one of the following Director positions for the upcoming 2015-2016 Season:

Tournament Director
Equipment Coordinator
Jefferson Jaguars Director

Each position holds a one year term; and expectations can be found in the By-Laws located on the Board of Directors tab. This can be a very rewarding experience in contributing to the growth of the youth in our community. If you are interested or have questions, please contact Kelly Milkowich (kmilkowich@gmail.com). Thank you for your consideration.

HISTORY

Since its organization in 1958, the Watertown Skating and Hockey Association, Inc., has remained true to its original purpose of developing “the health and cultural growth of youth in the community” through participation in athletics.  Over the past 50 years the Association’s volunteers have coached, trained and mentored thousands of children in Jefferson, Lewis and St. Lawrence counties.  The Association has skaters on the ice ranging in age from 3 to 18 years old.  Our teams compete throughout New York and Canada and we play host to several hockey tournaments in Watertown each season.  The Association is the local affiliated organization of USA Hockey, Inc., the national governing body for the sport of hockey in the United States.  We take pride in the strict standards of coach education, qualifications and screening required by USA Hockey.  The quality and dedication of our coaches and volunteer management and staff is directly reflected the years of loyalty of our many skaters and parents.  Besides training athletic skill and teaching a sport, our coaches strive to develop character, sportsmanship, and overall physical fitness.  Our mission is to provide each child with the opportunity to grow socially, learn mental and physical discipline and experience the power of teamwork and collective competitiveness.  The Association looks forward to another 50 years of developing civic minded, responsible citizens through youth sport.
