Open Forum - Update

On March 11, an open forum was held to discuss a vision several area hockey leaders/coaches have for the future of youth hockey in Brown County.  The group has been evaluating the changing hockey landscape and exploring if our area would be better served with a single youth hockey association.

Attached below are two documents relative to the open forum meeting.  The first is the agenda, a series of questions formulated related to merge and the voting ballot presented to all attendees.  The second is a brief summary of the discussion that occurred at the meeting and the results of the unofficial vote taken.   The purpose of the vote was to determine whether or not members were in favor of continuing discussion on a possible merger between the two Associations and why.

While the vote was unofficial we feel there is ample support to pursue continued discussion on the details (by-law changes, WAHA requirements, team sizes, fee structure, etc.).  An official vote to determine support of these discussions will be taken from DPYHA Membership during the Annual Meeting on Tuesday, March 31th at 6:00 pm.  This meeting is open to all members of DPYHA and will be held at the De Pere High School Auditorium, 1700 Chicago Street.

    Skeeter Hockey Day

    Squirt A's invited the Wisconsin Skeeter hockey team come and show us the sport of sled hockey.

    This is a wonderful program that allows kids with disabilities to play ice hockey with the use of sleds.  The boys had a great time and quickly learned it was not easy.  Thank You to the Skeeters for their time and hard work today!! 

    Fox 11 was present to capture the event and had a segment on Fox 11 Sports Edge.  If you missed it, you can use this link to view it:
