WAYHA Summer Development Program Details

Summer is just around the corner and we are all making plans for our kids and families.  We hope those plans include some summer skating to keep our players skills sharp and ready for next season.  We have some outstanding summer development options for your player this summer.  These camps are priced very reasonably and will all be located at St. Mary's University.  The Winona Summer Development Program will be coached by Fran McDevitt, head WHS Hockey coach, and J. Reszka, Asst. Coach for the St. Mary's Men's team.  For squirts through HS players June will offer dryland training, stick handling, shooting and other off ice skills.  July will bring the on-ice portion.
To register, please complete the appropriate registration form to send in.  If you have questions regarding your skaters skills and appropriate level of play please contact me or one the coaches below.

New Concussion Program

The Winona Area Youth Hockey Association (WAYHA) has partnered with Winona Health and the newly formed Winona Youth Sports Safety Committee (WYSSC) to provide a comprehensive concussion management program for our players.  The initial cost of screening each player will be covered by Winona Health, our local health care provider.

Concussions have become a serious problem in contact sports as our kids are bigger, faster, and stronger.  The medical community has just begun to better understand the long-term effects of concussions and that even seemingly minor head injuries can greatly harm young athletes, and put their future and even their lives at risk. 

Minnesota has passed legislation requiring all youth sports programs provide concussion information to parents and players, including formal training for coaches.  The law mandates that a child suffering a concussion receive formal clearance from a health care provider before undergoing a gradual “return-to-play” process.

District 9

The creation of District 9, located in southern Minnesota , will take effect with the 2010-11 season.  This  change will directly effect Winona as we are part of the new District.  The Associations making up District 9 are shown below:
