Congratulations to the NM Bantams on their championship win at the 2014 Schwan's Cup. The Bantams gave up only one goal last weekend beating Blaine, Champlin Park and Moundsview/Irondale to win the Cup.
All youth hockey coaches in Minnesota and the rest of the country are required to attend a series of clinics, via the Coach Education Program (CEP), before they are eligible to coach. The clinics are designed to help coaches provide curriculum and use the proper teaching techniques to insure the proper development of their players.
Level 1, 2 and 3 Clinics are offered at Brooklyn Park on the following day:
• December 14, 2014
Please bring your equipment to the clinics as it is required that you get on the ice as well.
To register, obtain more information and locate additional clinic times and locations, please see the MN Hockey Associations website: http://www.minnesotahockey.org/page/show/84413-coaching-education-program

Two winners have been chosen as recipients of the 2014 Justin Winker Scholarship. His friends and family created the scholarship in memory of Justin.
Participants were asked to write a 500-word essay on how youth hockey helped prepare them for college. An award of $500.00 was handed to each of the winners by association president Keith Vowels at the July board meeting.
The recipients, pictured with Keith, are Jacob Lange (University of North Dakota) and Megan Peterson (College of St. Scholastica)
We had a great turnout for the Fridley parade! Thank you to everyone who participated!

D3 wants everyone to know they are making a strong effort to reduce head contact (and hopefully the prevalence of concussions).
Hockey is not an end. It is a means to an end. There is nothing inherently good about scoring, forechecking, backchecking, or winning. It is only good if it promotes education and learning. Those that come away with a higher work ethic, honesty, and integrity are the true winners. Hockey does not build character, rather it reveals it. It's these values that do more than anything else we develop that will be the true measure of how successful the NMYHA is.
