By MLN 04/27/2021, 7:15am EDT

Nominations are now being accepted for the WHA 2021-2022 Board of Directors. 

All current WHA members are able to nominate candidates (including themselves) for the Board. Please visit the link here to make your submission: www.surveymonkey.com/r/2TGXYVL

Nominations are open through May 4, 2021. After the nomination period ends, we will compile a list of candidates to be voted upon for our six (6) board openings. These openings carry a two (2) year term, beginning July 1, 2021 and ending June 30th, 2023.

All nominees will be asked whether they wish to remain on the ballot and serve on the board.

BOD voting will tentatively take place at tryouts in June. We are working on an alternative method of voting for those who will not be attending tryouts (including Mite families ).

Hello WHA players,

WHA Alum Matt Bertani is bringing his MB Instructional Camp to Center Ice Arena from June 21 to June 25, 2021. More information can be found on their website. https://www.hockeycoachescorner.com/instructional-camp

Several WHA coaches have assisted with this program over the years. 

New for 2021: MB Instructional Camp has added a new instructor to the team, Janine Weber. Janine is a perennial NWHL All-Star and current member of the Connecticut Whale.  She was a member of the Austrian National and Olympic teams, competing in 10 World Championships. She earned her master's degree playing NCAA Division I hockey at Providence College.

For our goalies, James Mello will be providing goaltending specific instruction. James, a standout at Dartmouth, is co-owner of RI Hockey Academy. James specializes in goaltending instruction and one-on-one skill development. James starred as a Rhode Island high school goaltender at LaSalle Academy before heading to Dartmouth, where he is a member of the college's Athletic Hall of Fame. James also serves as coordinator of the LaSalle Academy hockey program and led the boys team to a Rhode Island state championship.
