Dear past, current and future Leafs members,
It seems like the Fall 2018/19 season just ended, but we have been working hard behind the scenes getting ready for the 2019/20 Fall season! Thank you for choosing the West Dundee Hockey Club for your family’s youth hockey experience. I have some exciting news and updates to share with you.
As we continue to improve the Leafs Hockey Club Developmental Model, we are driven to be the best Tier 2 club in Illinois. We’ve made some exciting changes to our skills program for this upcoming season. Focused around development and improved skating, our skills will be run by Justin Nelson. Nellys Power Skating will be running most of our Squirt-Bantam on ice skill sessions. Earlier this spring, we announced our new goalie director Zach Drane. Zach has changed the structure of our goalie skills program and now our goalies will be working with a director more often and in smaller group settings. This will take our Goalie Skills Program to another level, and we’re excited to have our kids working with Zach. We believe these changes will enhance the experience at the Leafs, for both skaters and goalies.
We are proud to announce that once again the Leafs will be fielding teams at all birth year levels in the Central States Developmental Hockey League(CSDHL). We will also continue to field teams in the Northern Illinois Hockey League(NIHL), and the Northwest Hockey League(NWHL). Each Leafs team will be placed in the skill appropriate league and level that will give each skater the best opportunity to develop and grow their game.
Fall Registration will be opening soon for the Leafs. Early registration will run through July 15th so take advantage of the $200 early registration discount and get your uniforms and warm ups ordered. AHAI has moved up the allowable start date for tryouts this year. Squirts, Pee Wees, and Bantams will begin August 25th this season ahead of the old rule of a September 1st start. Midgets, Girls, and mites will begin tryouts August 15th as in years past. Please mark your calendars for this important change.
As many of you are aware, there is new ownership of the rink. Canlan Ice sports, a proven operator of rinks in the USA and Canada, has taken over of the facility and will be making several upgrades and improvements to enhance our experience. They are currently in the process of taking down and rebuilding both the JJ and South Rinks. The entire interior has been painted and many more improvements are planned for the near and distant future. The transition with WDHC has been seamless and we are excited to be working with and doing business with Canlan. We have secured more ice this year than ever before and look forward to growing the club and our business relationship with the new owners.
I once again thank you for your interest in the West Dundee Hockey Club, and good luck to all our skaters and teams this coming fall. It’s a great time to be a Leaf! If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or reach out to any other Executive Committee member.
