CCYHA is pleased to announce the hiring of Gord Rivington to fill the position of Director of Operations for the retiring Scott Wheeler. Many of you know Gord through his involvement in youth hockey for over 15 years. He has coached at both the House and Travel levels including the opportunity to take several teams to the prestigious Peewee Quebec Tournament. He has been active in our evaluation processes for years and is well acquainted with the kids and coaches within our Organization. In addition, Gord's 25 plus years managing within a Fortune 500 company makes him the ideal candidate to move CCYHA forward and help us grow in the coming years. The Board has asked Gord to especially focus on the House program to aid those kids and coaches grow to their full potential while maintaining our mission of providing a safe, fun environment for kids to enjoy playing hockey. Gord will take over effective August 1, 2014.
The Board would also like to take this opportunity to thank Scott Wheeler for his many years of devotion to CCYHA hockey. Under his leadership, we have experienced a significant growth in both House and Travel teams along with the addition of a stellar girls program and Special Needs Program. Scott always looked to put the player first realizing that hockey is meant to be fun for both child and parent. We wish Scott the best of luck as he coaches the 2000 AA team for the final time. Thanks again for all your hard work.
We would like to first of all apologize for some of the confusion surrounding the midget age group. Historically, the CBus program was run independently from CCYHA by Pete Wishloff with CCYHA rostering the teams. For the past couple years CCYHA also allowed CBus to use our online registration process prior to try-outs. When Mid Am took administrative action against Pete, CCYHA stepped up our planned involvement to help ensure the players already trying out would have a place to play. Mid Am reversed their suspension and reinstated Pete. Pete has resumed leadership of the CBus program. CCYHA and CBus had a number of issues that we have tried to resolve, but have not been able to come to an agreeable resolution. CCYHA, at this point in time, will not be rostering the CBus teams this year. Any questions or concerns about the CBus program should be directed to Pete.
CCYHA is currently planning on forming our own midget pre-, post- teams based on the interest he have heard. More on dates for tryouts, coaches to follow. Please keep an eye on the CCYHA webpage for more information. Again, we apologize for any confusion that is surrounding this age group.
The dates have been set for the Fall 2014 USA Hockey Coaching Clinics. They are as follows:
Level 1 Clinic - Saturday, October 4, 2014 - 9:00 AM – 5:00 PM at Chiller North

Level 3 Clinic - Sunday, September 7, 2014 - 9:00 AM – 5:00 PM at Chiller North
Each clinic will include an on-ice session – helmets are mandatory for all coaches during the on-ice session. Clinics have been posted to the USA Hockey web site and registration is open at this time. Please advise your coaches accordingly. If the above dates are inconvenient, please note that there are also clinics available in Pittsburgh, Cleveland, and South Bend at this time and there will probably be clinics in Oxford and Toledo as well.
