    Let’s Play Hockey explores the Edina hockey program

    Why is Edina hockey so successful?

    An interesting article by John Hamre in this week’s Let’s Play Hockey attempts to answer just that. 

    Link: http://www.letsplayhockey.com/online-edition/news/2569-why-is-edina-hockey-so-successful.html

    As Hamre discovers (and we agree) the success of Edina hockey can’t be attributed to a single action, thing or individual. It’s a collective effort from the entire community including:

    •        Parents – encouraging our kids to get involved and being supportive on both good and bad days
    •        Coaches – both parents and non-parents donating their time over almost 70 years and helping to influence the character of our kids both on and off the ice
    •        The City and City Leaders - recognizing the importance and impact of athletics in the community and providing first-class, well-maintained facilities
    •        Edina public and private schools – consistently providing excellence in and out of the classroom
    •        The kids - putting in the time and effort, being part of a team and having fun 

    Our success is not measured by the number of banners hanging in Braemar. It’s measured by the fun our kids have — that they learn the game the right way, get involved through community-service projects, and to enjoy playing the game for many, many years.  That’s why we have quality programs for kids from pre-K to their senior year in high school because not every player will play for their high school team.

    It’s up to the entire Edina community to keep this model of excellence alive for future generations and for kids of all abilities.  We hope you enjoy the article. Perhaps pick up a printed copy at one of the rinks around town.

    EHA Safe Sport Coordinator

    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.
