Thank you for a great hockey season!

By T. Horton, 04/05/24, 11:15AM CDT


As the saying in life goes, "don't blink or you might miss something" can certainly apply to the 2023-24 Hastings Hockey season. 

It seems like just yesterday we were preparing for the season, buying new hockey gear, meeting our coaches, learning what teams our player/s are on, and gearing up to spend time with our hockey families at the rink..... and, before you know it, our season winded down already a few weeks ago. 

As a 100% volunteer based association, the success, fun, and organization could not be possible without all of those who donate so much of their time to our youth hockey players! 

Genuinely, thank you to:

To our Coaches: 
Thank you to the 100+ coaches that give so much of their time to not only be a coach but also a friend, a mentor, a comedian, a teacher, and most importantly for being great role models for all of the hockey players.

To our Hockey Parents/Guardians: 
Thank you to all of the hockey parents, guardians, and families who so willingly support both the Hastings Hockey Association and our hockey players.  HHB could not do it without your support and dedication from acting as a chauffeur for your player/s, volunteering at HHB Hockey events, support through fundraisers, and simply cheering on Hastings Hockey!!

To the Hastings Civic Arena Staff: 
Thank you for giving our players a place to play hockey!  Thank you for keeping the arena clean, the ice cold, the popcorn popped, and for your partnership with the Association!  The Hastings Civic is one of the most iconic arenas in MN and we so much appreciate the arena staff for all they do!

To the HHB Board of Directors: 
The 27 HHB Board of Directors/Coordinators put in a tremendous amount of hours and work to plan, operate, and manage the day-to-day activities of the association and their work certainly does not go unnoticed.  Thank you for all that you do in your roles and for all the time and effort you dedicate both in-season and off-season!

To ALL of the Hastings Hockey Supporters: 
Thank you to our sponsors, District 8, HHB Hockey Development Committee, Hastings Park and Rec, the Hastings High School Hockey Program, UHL, the Hastings Hockey Charitable Gambling Committee, and to anyone else who I missed, a tremendous Thank You!!

As to continue to recognize areas of success within the association, areas to improve, and to spark new ideas and concepts, your Hastings Hockey Board of Directors would greatly appreciate you taking a few minutes to complete the 2023-2024 Hastings Hockey Season Survey.

Again, thank you for a great season and I look forward to seeing you all at the rink during the upcoming 2024-2025 Hastings Hockey Season!
