The DYHA Board of Directors is pleased to announce the creation of a Safety Coordinator position for the organization. The Safety Coordinator will assist DYHA in providing coaches, players and parents with information and assistance around player safety, health and fitness. Responsibilities will include organizing annual injury management and CPR courses for our coaches, managing a safety information page on the DYHA website, providing useful information to coaches and families periodically via email and acting as a resource of information for anyone who has player safety or health related questions.
We also want to thank Craig Croteau who brought this idea to the Board and has agreed to take on the role. Craig has been part of the DYHA family for over 6 years and currently serves as Assistant Coach and Team Manager of our Granite State Wild PeeWee Minor team. Craig is also a retired paramedic who worked for the City of Dover Fire & Rescue for 24 years and spent many years teaching medical and fire fighting programs at Dover High School.
A new email address as been set up for anyone who would like to contact Craig with questions or has ideas about how we can improve DYHA’s player safety program. You can reach him at firstname.lastname@example.org. This contact information is also now listed on the Board of Directors page of the DYHA website.
Please join us in welcoming Craig to the role and thank him for his commitment to helping Dover Youth Hockey provide a safer playing experience for our young athletes!
Dover Youth Hockey Association is pleased to announce a new partnership with EverProven Training & CrossFit to provide off-ice training and development for our Dover Stars and Granite State Wild teams.
Beginning on Tuesday, November 1st all off-ice training for DYHA will be provided by EverProven at their new facility located at 50 Crosby Road in Dover, NH.
EverProven was selected by the DYHA Board of Directors following a review process that included several athletic training organizations from the Greater Dover area. EverProven has operated as a general and sports-specific training facility in the Dover area since 2012 and recently moved into a new, 7500 sq/ft facility to expand on their athletic training offerings. This expansion includes a separate hockey training area equipped with a synthetic ice surface.
EverProven’s “Fundamental Movement Skills” approach to training young athletes, state-of-the art facility and commitment to hockey-focused training all stood out during the selection process as providing significant benefits to our players. As an additional benefit, EverProven coaches have been providing coaching support at the Leach Brothers training facility during most DYHA off-ice sessions this year. This gives their coaches a great level of familiarity with our young players and should make for an easier transition from LBH to EverProven.
The DYHA Board is excited about this new training partnership and the benefits it will provide to our young athletes. More information about EverProven is available on the EverProven website.
As always, we welcome your questions and feedback by emailing email@example.com.
Go Stars! Go Wild!
