A note of thanks to our hockey family.....

To our coaches, we appreciate the countless hours you spend planning and being there for the kids during practices, games and other events.  You teach our kids the love of the game while mentoring them to be the best they can be both at the rink and in life!   

To our team managers, you are the coaches right hand and work hard to keep our teams running smoothly by handling rostering, scheduling,  financials, team parties and more.  Your organization and creativity help the kids and parents have fun off the ice too and it could not be a success without you!  

 We are grateful for our parents, siblings, grandparents, aunts, uncles, other family members and friends, who make endless sacrifices and keep the winter clothing out year-round to stay warm at the rink.  We give cheers to you for making the 6:30 am games, airing out the stinky bags, putting miles on cars, spending money on hotel rooms and team dinners, all while trying to make it to the next thing. 

 We do this for our players, who we watch grow up way too fast and we are always proud to watch; win or lose.  Thank you for representing KVHA humbly and with pride.  We look forward to watching you continue to grow and develop in this great sport of ours and wish you all the best! 

You are all why KVHA is the best place to play and for that, no words can express our gratitude!
