EIHA PRESS RELEASE 23 JUNE 2015

TUESDAY 23rd JUNE 2015.

JACQUELINE PYE APPOINTED CHAIR OF THE JUNIOR LEAGUE MANAGEMENT COMMITTEE
THE YOUTH MANAGEMENT COMMITTEE MOVES FORWARD

Mrs. Jacqui Pye has been appointed as Chair of the Junior Section for the 2015/2016. The appointment will be reviewed at end of season.

Jacqui has a long history within ice hockey. Running the Sunderland club for many years and still battling on when the ice rink was closed, begging, borrowing or paying for ice as they went along.

Later she took the newly named team, Newcastle, to the new Arena in Gateshead, until that closed when she then merged the team with Billingham, making sure the players could continue in our sport.

As Chair of the Northern Conference within the Youth Management Committee she helped steer our sport on at both Conference and National Level.

Jacqui will be a very big asset in driving our sport forward at Junior Level.

The Youth Management Committee

With immediate effect the YMC has been re-named the JUNIOR LEAGUE MANAGEMENT COMMITTEE.

Conference Chairs and Secretaries will now be named Regional Chair and Secretary.

They will be given more autonomy in running their own regions within the Rules laid down.

I look forward to working with Jacqui and the other members of the JLMC and believe we are starting to move in the right direction.

Director for Junior Hockey

    A step in the right direction? I indeed hope so. We have needed to see change within the Junior Section of the EIHA for a number of years. IMO, the YMC was constrained and became ineffective. Good luck to those people moving on to new roles and in particular to JP as she tries to take the Section forward. Let’s hope we can look forward to the introduction of (some if not complete) transparency, strategy, vision and greater levels of collaboration with those of us working in the trenches. Above all let’s try and be accountable….
