For the second consecutive year, the Edina Hockey Association is pleased to be able to grant 3 post-secondary scholarships to Edina High School (EHS) seniors. The recipients for this year’s scholarships include Emma Schatz, Bobby Terwilliger and Katie Murney. The three recent graduates were recognized at the Edina High School Local Scholarship Reception on May 15th. The scholarship recipients must have played hockey either for EHA or EHS teams from their freshman year through and including their senior year. These scholarships are made possible by the successful fundraising that the EHA does throughout the year.
Emma will continue her education at the University of St. Thomas this fall to pursue an early childhood education major. Bobby will also be attending the University of St. Thomas this fall studying business. Katie will attend Boston College this fall to begin a pre-med program.
The EHA would like to congratulate Emma, Bobby and Katie and wish them the best of luck in college and the years ahead!

EHA Girls Hockey Goalie Coach Tom Helvick is a 2015 Award Recipient of the Minnesota Hockey Coaching Excellence Award. This award is given to the top coaches in Minnesota who make a difference in the lives of the players they coach. Tom was nominated by U14A goalie, Megan Smith, who has been fortunate to have him as her coach for the past two years. He helped Megan progress from a first year goalie when he started as her coach to a State Champion this past year. Megan says, "Tom makes every practice fun and is always super positive when he is coaching." In addition to his goalie coaching responsibilities for the U14A Girls Team, Tom provides goalie coaching clinics for new EHA goalies and coaches goalies at practices at all levels within the organization. Tom helps continue the long tradition of exceptional coaching within the Edina Hockey Association program.

USA Hockey is implementing a new set of policies starting with the 2012-13 season called The SafeSport Program. The purpose of this program is to create the safest possible environment for participation in hockey. There will be a new position created to oversee the implementation of this program for each association. Tom Chorske will fill this position.
The comprehensive program is focused on creating an environment that will deter abusers and assist those in the hockey community in recognizing, reducing and responding to allegations or suspected abuse. You can read about the program by clicking on the link below.
