New Bylaws and Board of Directors Vote Announced
by posted 08/18/2014
 

Over the past few months the RYHA Board has been reviewing its bylaws and structure. With the guidance of legal counsel, the Board has developed a revised set of bylaws and recommended changes in the board structure. The revisions are intended to provide bylaws that are more consistent with other not-for-profit organizations in North Carolina and to address some key protections for the organization and board that are not present in the current bylaws.

As a member driven organization, these new bylaws require a formal vote of the RYHA membership. The new bylaws also implement changes in the board structure that, if approved, will require an out of cycle election of two board positions.

The full revised bylaws, a summary of bylaw changes, and a Board of Directors FAQ document have been posted to the Junior Hurricanes website. Click here to review these documents.

A membership meeting has been scheduled for Friday September 5, 2014 from 6:30-8:00p at the PNC Arena. Members are encouraged to attend in person, but we also intend to provide access to the meeting via online and phone conferencing. Dial-in/Login information will be provided prior to the meeting.

The official votes for the bylaws and open board positions will be taken online following the meeting. All voting will close 24 hours after the conclusion of the meeting.

Nominations for the two open board positions is now open. The open positions will fill the offices of Secretary and VP at Large. If you or someone you know is interested in becoming part of the Junior Hurricanes/RYHA Board, please submit your nominations by clicking here. The link to the nomination form can also be found under the Program Info tab of the Junior Hurricanes website. Nominations close Monday September 1, 2014.

If you’re interested but not sure about what’s involved, we are holding an informal Q&A session on August 27th from 6:30-7:30p at the Starbucks at 4421 Six Forks Road near North Hills Mall. Three current board members will be available to answer your questions about what’s involved in being an RYHA Board member.

If you have any questions please feel free to reach out to any of the current board members or staff. Our contact information is available on the Junior Hurricanes website.

Jr Hurricanes PW AA Coach Wright Takes Ice Bucket Challenge
by posted 08/11/2014
 

 

Have you heard about the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge? The challenge involves people getting doused with buckets of ice water on video, posting that video to social media, then nominating others to do the same, all in an effort to raise ALS awareness. Those who refuse to take the challenge are asked to make a donation to the ALS charity of their choice.

Junior Hurricanes Pee Wee AA Head Coach David Wright accepts the challenge and offers a challenge of his own to Junior Hurricanes coaches Colin Muldoon, EJ Stern, and Thayer Universal.

Click here to see Colin and others as they respond to the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge.

The Carolina Hurricanes Prospects Development Camp is being held July 21-26 at PNC Arena. Goaltender Alex Nedeljkovic suffered a broken thumb in summer training and will miss the camp. With Nedeljkovic out, former Junior Hurricane and Cary native Logan Halladay will man one of the nets in this week's camp.

Halladay is one of three former Junior Hurricanes who will participate in the Prospects Camp. He joins Canes fourth-round draft pick Josh Wesley and camp invitee Bryan Moore.

Congratulations and best wishes to all three!

Excitement for Youth Hockey in North Carolina
by posted 07/03/2014
 

It was an exciting 2014 NHL Draft weekend, not only for three young men from North Carolina but also for the RYHA Junior Hurricanes program. Josh Wesley was selected by the Carolina Hurricanes in the fourth round, 96th overall.  It was great to hear as a former Canes player and now employee, that Wesley grew up wearing Canes gear as kid, then wearing the sweater in our Jr. Hurricanes travel program and now at the top level on draft day.

Other top local players and former Junior Hurricanes, while not drafted, also have a bright future. Bryan Moore is heading straight to the New York Rangers prospect camp on a free agent try-out and Logan Halladay is preparing for another season in USHL Bloomington Thunder organization before heading to Minnesota on a scholarship in the near future.  The success of these young men not only shows the hard work and dedication they have put in on the ice, but also highlights the dedication to development the RYHA has put into the Triangle over the past 26 years.

The RYHA’s continued passion to develop and grow our young talent is unprecedented here in North Carolina and will continue to succeed for many years to come! By utilizing the USA Hockey age specific model and having dedicated coaches and staff, the RYHA Junior. Hurricanes program is and will continue to be a model for success. The Carolina Hurricanes will continue to support the local youth hockey community and strive to unify the area from year to year. You can find more about these three great players in the links below!
