The fun of winning, not the stress of winning.
Dear Humber Valley Families,
At Humber Valley we are very proud of our heritage as a hockey club and the wonderful memories we have helped make for the many players and families we have registered over the years. Whether your child played house league, select A, AA or all levels, Humber Valley has always tried to offer a safe and fun, community atmosphere that focuses on creating better hockey players.
Today hockey is changing, and Humber Valley needs to change as well. Hockey has recently seen the implementation of modified ice for our youngest players, the announced name changes from U7 to U17 and the future launch of the Pathways Model for our U10 and U11 players. All major changes but perhaps nothing will change us more then the impact of COVID-19.
At Humber Valley, we are fully committed to building a plan that will make a dent in the hockey community and being a leader in how we address the needed changes. Our goal is to bring Humber Valley forward as a sports club, focused on the development of our players and coaches along with providing a great environment for our families and volunteers. Beyond these goals we also are looking to build a culture of winning that is not just measured by games scores and tournament wins. It is important to take the stress out of winning and put fun back in the game. We do that by focusing on the success of each player’s development, the improved position of Humber Valley as a community leader and the long-term shift of how hockey is played and perceived.
We started the process to build a 3-year strategic roadmap with the full support of the HVHA Board and the intent to drive action. The plan will be the building block of how we evolve as a club, where we focus our efforts and how we interact with the community, both locally and within hockey. As we move forward and execute, we will share our progress with all parents , volunteers and coaches in Humber Valley. It will be an exciting learning process for all of us and a defining period for HVHA. We are all excited to share this journey with you and welcome your ideas and feedback as we move forward.
Wishing you good health and safety,
President, Humber Valley Hockey Association
