2018 Survey Results

Dear Parents,

 As promised, we have collected the information from our survey and have prepared the data to share with you.  Let me first say a thank you to the members who took the time to respond.  There was a lot of careful thought and consideration we put into conducting this once again. We appreciate the time you took to give us some feedback.  As we have done in the past, reviewing the results are just the start of our efforts to continuously improve our organization.  We spent a good deal of time both at the board meeting this past Monday, as well as individually, reviewing the results. 

The board members will continue to review the findings and work together over the next few meetings to shape our organization. But a few things are clear to us:

  1. Skills sessions during the summer will remain. (Only 4% of respondents want to remove)
    1. And they should stay once per week
  2. Tournament fees should still be included in tuition costs
  3. Fall Skills should continue

Some other items we’ll look at more closely and decide upon when the next board convenes in April/May

  • Cash Calendar process (modify, eliminate, etc.)
  • Practice hours (late/early hours)

One item that always jumps out at me is our engagement level.  Hockey, unlike every other sport, takes a special commitment both from the kids, but also the parents. It’s clear from the amount of you that respond, that you want to be heard. Most of the feedback is very helpful! As we look to improve in the coming year, I ask a few simple items from you all: 

  1. Keep up the passion. That’s what makes this such a great organization.
  2. Get involved. Many of you ask what you can do? Come to a board meeting, offer to help your coaches, anything. It’s a long season each year and a labor of love for all of us. Help is always appreciated.
  3. Give us feedback – If you have concerns, let us know. We (board, coaches) all want to get better. Without the feedback (positive and negative), we can’t understand what you’d like to see differently. I think we have one of the most transparent processes of any youth program that I’ve seen. We strive to be as fair as we can be.  You’ll see that in our meetings. Are we perfect? Absolutely not. But our goals are to be as close to that as possible.

I truly believe we have one of the best youth hockey organizations in the area.  We provide great value compared to other towns and more importantly, we have great families. It’s a winning combination.

The survey can be found in the documents section of our website.

Thank you and good luck to the Squirts, Peewees and Bantams at they begin the championship hunt this weekend.
