It’s no secret to our community and our association that girl’s hockey has made great strides towards growth each year. Thanks to our efforts and past president Nikki Siddons for bringing our story to the attention of USA Hockey, Waconia Hockey Association has been recognized and received a USA Hockey Female Honors Award! This award recognizes hockey associations that are leaders in the growth, development, and promotion of ice hockey for females. Siddons’s application highlighted the work Waconia Hockey Association has done the past 10 + years to grow the girl’s program, support girls’ hockey and give back to the Waconia community and surrounding areas. This past April, Mite Director and HDC Committee Member Kelsey Nowak her daughter Kate (U6 player) accepted the award from USA Hockey on behalf of Waconia Hockey Association.
