Thank you for your continued support over the years!
I’m pleased to be writing this letter to the CVSA community as your new President on the CVSA Board of Directors. For those that don’t know me, I have two sons in the program (10U and 12U levels) and have been on the ice coaching for 7 years. Over the years, I have continued to volunteer in the organization not only as a coach, but also a board member. Myself, along with my fellow board members have been diligently working this summer on plans to return to the ice, in a much more typical setting compared to last year! We are excited to get the 2021-2022 CVSA hockey season underway! It has been a while since we have been able to cheer on our teams with our fellow hockey families and we are all looking forward to it! We hope that things continue to proceed in the direction it’s been going, and we can resume a normal hockey season. I have heard from many families that have kids in summer programs about how great it feels to be in the rink this summer watching hockey.
Last year many organizations were not able to have a season. As such, the CVSA family grew and was fortunate to welcome many new skaters as well as new coaches that are now involved in our program. Word is that many are returning and looking forward to experiencing a real season at CVSA. Help me in making them feel at home and assuring them that their commitment to us was a great decision.
There have been a few changes to the CVSA board, as a few individuals have moved on. We would like to thank Jason Merrill, and Brian Amones for their years of service and dedication to the program. The two of them will be missed and forever be a part of the CVSA family. In their place we have added two energetic and enthusiastic gentleman, Leighton Dalmasse and Seth Brown. Please give them a ‘thanks’ when you see them, for their commitment to our program.
The Board of Directors has been meeting about not only planning for the upcoming season, but also to discuss getting our fundraising events back on track. We are planning to hold both: the Second Annual Cornhole Tournament (Save the Date: September 18th!) and our annual Calcutta Fundraiser dinner and hope them to be as fun and prosperous as they were in years past. We will need lots of help from all of you to make these a success. Stay tuned for more information on how you can get involved. Thank you to all who have already registered for the upcoming season. We ask families to register by August 15th. It is important that we have roster numbers so we are prepared to attend the Vermont State Hockey Face Off Meeting and start scheduling our games!
If you have any questions about registration or encounter any problems, please reach out to myself (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Laura Lafaille (email@example.com). Additionally, we do have scholarships available if needed, please see the registration tab on our website for more information and the application! As a reminder, our pre-season skates start Tuesday, September 6th. We are looking forward to seeing you all then. Please be on the look-out for updates and correspondence via email, or on our website at cvsahockey.org.
SEE YOU AT THE RINK!
