The President's Update

Dear Southtowns Stars Families,

Welcome to the 23-24 hockey season!  We are excited to see all of our teams back on the ice for this new season.  We thank you for choosing Southtowns Stars for your youth hockey home and we hope that your experience with our organization is a positive one. 

We hope that your players continue to develop and grow while playing in a competitive environment that helps them to learn good sportsmanship, empathy and skill. 

Our board of directors is committed to continuing to make Southtowns a great place to play youth hockey.  We are always looking to enhance our program to continue to make it more attractive. As a leadership board we will continue to look at additional ways to to enhance our program incentives and offerings.

For the past four years  I have served the organization as the President/COO.  While I have thoroughly enjoyed this position and have been able to implement many of the goals I set throughout my time, it is time to step away from this position and assist the organization in other roles. In the coming weeks, I will be moving out of the position as President/COO of the organization, but will remain on the BOD as VP/CAO to ensure a smooth and consistent transition. 

The Board of Directors is here to represent our Southtowns families.  If at any time you have concerns, questions or would like to offer feedback, please reach out to any of these dedicated members.  Go Stars!
