Waconia Hockey Association Honored by Minnesota Hockey

Waconia Hockey Association Honored By Minnesota Hockey


The Waconia Hockey Association was recently honored with the Minnesota Hockey "Grow the Game" Award, recognizing our Associations dedicated efforts to introduce hockey to the youth in our community.  Over the past several years, our Association has been instrumental in bringing the first outdoor rink to our community, establishing a mentorship program for new families, offering multiple try hockey for free events, partnering with our local schools to encourage kids to try hockey, and providing equipment to new hockey families at low/no cost through equipment exchanges and MN Hockey Gear Up Minnesota grant .  We'd like to thank Kelsey Nowak, Mite Coordinator, Todd Hahn, Hockey Development Coordinator, Shiloh Parisian, Growth Coordinator and our Hockey Development Committee for their efforts this year.  We'd also like to thank the many current and past WHA coaches, High School coaches, Board Members, and Key Volunteers that have volunteered thousands of hours to grow the game of hockey in Waconia.  


Waconia Hockey Association President Joel Knorr, his son Madden and Girls Coordinator Mike Wozniak accepted the award at the 2022-2023 Minnesota Hockey Awards Banquet held on April 15 in Minneapolis. 


Congratulations WHA!
