Director of Hockey: May '17 Report

2016-2017 DCYH Tryouts

The DCYH Season is upon us!  Boys and Girls are sharpening their skates and skills in preparation for the new season. As Director of Hockey, I will be leading the tryout process from beginning to completion. Great care is being taken to provide every opportunity for participation. Tryouts will be thorough and fun to watch. I have been on both sides of making the team and not making the team and emotions have been those of highs and lows. What I remember most is the calm my dad showed while I received notice from my tryouts. His support, no matter what, helped me understand that outcomes are a part of learning and growing.  Best Wishes to Every Player, Jeff Bolin
