Coaching Mission

By SYHI Board 08/07/2016, 12:59pm EDT

 SYHI depends on us.  The future of the game depends on us.  In our mission to grow the game by helping players foster a love for hockey, we must strive for excellence in what we do, what we bring to the rink in terms of good energy, good communication habits, preparedness, patience and a willingness to do what is necessary to effect positive change, for without it there can be no improvement.  We have to take fun seriously.  If we want our players to love hockey, we have to do our part or we risk draining their enthusiasm and losing them.
