OCTOBER 2023 / VOLUME 1, ISSUE 1
A New Era In Communication
Welcome to the first NYSAHA newsletter. The creation of this monthly newsletter is an integral part of the overall strategic plan put together by the NYSAHA board of directors to better serve every member, from youth to adult players, coaches to officials, parents to administrators.
During the many discussions that have taken place at the local, section and state levels, we’ve heard from people who are craving more communication and while also shining a spotlight on all the good things that are taking place in rinks from Buffalo to Binghamton and Oswego to Oyster Bay.
This newsletter, along with our social media channels and website, will provide us with a vehicle to share those success stories with everyone and inspire the next generation of players and families to achieve their hockey dreams.
To do this we have teamed up with Harry Thompson, the long-time editor of USA Hockey Magazine. After 23 years at the helm of the world’s largest hockey publication, Harry is excited to bring that same level of experience and passion for the game to promote and publicize the great things happening around our state.
With his help we hope to create a newsletter that not only speaks to you by sharing important information from both the national and affiliate levels, but also speaks for you by showcasing some of the many great local players and teams that make New York such a dominant force within USA Hockey.
I encourage you to reach out to us to share your ideas and suggestions on how we can make this a successful season for everyone around our great state.
Best of luck this season.
