The Hockey Development Committee (HDC) was formed back in the winter and spring of 2009 by a group of coaches trying to make OYHA the best place for hockey in Wisconsin. The HDC is a subcommittee that reports to the Youth Hockey Committee for all of its work.
The HDC was formed to oversee tryouts, coaching, hockey development, coaching development and much more, but was intended to always do these things in the most transparent, fair and honest way possible for every single player at OYHA. This is a group of dedicated individuals each with their own unique set of hockey and youth coaching related skills to bring to the table and improve OYHA.
The HDC consists of:
Each level of OYHA has its own dedicated HDC Representative that you can contact to discuss any issue or ask any questions you might have. You are always free to approach any HDC member about any issue but it is best if you contact your level representative as a start if at all possible.
