Dear MRYHA families,
It is with with mixed emotions that I step down as the President of the Manchester Regional Youth Hockey Association prior to the completion of my second term. Next year I enter a new role at work which will require even more of my time, making it difficult for me to provide the necessary time and effort required as President. .
I joined the organization as an Intro-Mite back in 1985. Since joining the Board of Directors in 2002, MRYHA has been my second home and my second family. I've met some great volunteers and have made some great friends along the way!
I feel privileged to have led this program over the last 3 years as President and serve the organization for the last 15 years. While at times a thankless job, it has been my avenue to stay connected to the game I love and to the many friends I’ve made along the way.
I would be remiss if I did not thank my fellow board members for their hard work, dedication, passion, and commitment for MRYHA and for making the many years we've been on the board fun and memorable.
I am excited to announce that Mike Desmond was elected by the Board of Directors to serve as President for the 2017 - 2018 season.
I will continue to be part of the organization in some capacity and I look forward to working with Mike for a smooth transition over the next few months.
