Boise Youth Amateur Hockey Association Board update

Parents, Players and Coaches:
Our President, Ron Hjorth, resigned from the board for personal reasons and also had to step down as the Peewee head coach.  We will definitely miss Ron as a leader and a coach of our kids but completely support his decision.
Therefore, in accordance with the BYAHA bylaws the board made nominations and voted on the replacement for President.  During the last meeting, the current Vice President, Russel Des Jardins was nominated and voted in as President.  Then to fill the now vacant VP position the current Secretary, Jan-Erik Peterson was nominated and voted in as Vice President.  In order to maintain continuity and secretarial duties Jan-Erik was appointed with the additional duties as Secretary until a new one is elected by the board, .
The board is currently putting together nominations for Secretary to fill the last vacant position.  We intend to fill this position prior to the next board meeting in January.
I look forward to serving the organization with the increased responsibility as President and I am very excited for the opportunity to improve travel hockey within our community.
Grant writing experience:  We are looking for someone within the organization that has grant writing experience to assist or guide the board in writing grant applications.
If you have questions or suggestions on how we can all improve youth travel hockey please feel free to email me at .
Russel Des Jardins
BYAHA President

  Welcome to the Junior Steelheads!

BYAHA is the parent organization of the Junior Steelheads youth hockey teams and is a member of the Idaho Amateur Hockey Association and USA Hockey. BYAHA is a 501(c) 3 not-for-profit organization. The Boise Youth Amateur Hockey Association is a competitive travel ice hockey program serving the Treasure Valley. Located in Boise, Idaho, the Junior Steelheads are currently seeking young individuals in all age groups for their upcoming hockey season. Teams are being formed for the following levels: Squirt (8-10 years of age), Peewee (11-12 years of age), Bantam (13-14 years of age), U16 (Under 16 years of age) and U18 (Under 18 years of age). 

Competitive travel hockey is an exceptionally rewarding experience for youths. The Junior Steelheads program gives some of our community’s most talented and committed young men and women the exposure and opportunity to develop their skills while representing the Treasure Valley. And hockey is teaching our kids so many valuable life lessons such as discipline, teamwork, leadership, and accountability. Our mission is to provide and implement a positive learning environment for young players to gain the maximum benefits of participating in a competitive sports program. We believe in challenging them to embrace school academics, demanding dedication to sportsmanship as individuals and teammates both on and off the ice, enhancing skill development, developing good work habits, helping them set goals and plans to reach those goals. Our goal is to develop great people as well as players. We believe in setting and achieving goals, not just scoring them!
