We hope all of you are enjoying the summer months. It doesn’t seem that long ago we were all shuffling into hockey rinks finishing a busy hockey season. As crazy as it sounds, hockey season is just around the corner. Registration is now open and much planning is taking place in preparation for the upcoming hockey season.
As some of you may know, Justin Kirchevel resigned on June 30th from our Hockey Director position to take a coaching job in his hometown of Brookings, SD. It was a hard decision for him to leave us, but the opportunity to coach high level hockey in his hometown was an opportunity that was too hard to pass up. The organization would like to thank Justin for his time with us, as he was an integral part in the growth and development of FYHA towards an even better hockey program.
Realizing the importance of having someone in place prior to the start of next season, the Programming Committee immediately began recruiting a replacement. Several well-qualified candidates were identified and carefully considered to become our next Hockey Director. One candidate stood out through the selection process, and the FYHA Board of Directors with unanimous support from the Programming Committee selected John Kosobud as our new Hockey Director. John comes to us with a vast knowledge of youth hockey operations as well as a very impressive playing career. We are excited to have John fill a vital role in the continued enhancement of Fargo Youth Hockey Association.
