Thank You

DLYHA wants to say THANK YOU to John & Dawn Brehm! This year they were able to donate $23,000 to DLYHA! Continuing to honor Derick’s memory in this way is outstanding! Thank you to all that participated in the Derick Brehm Golf Tournament, it was a beaut

Fall Ice Schedule

It is with great excitement that I write to announce the details of our ice availability beginning Monday, August 8: Open hockey, every day. Through September, with adult supervision, players will have access to open ice, free of charge, Mondays through Fridays between 3 and 9:30 pm (with some exceptions; see schedule below, and check DLYHA arena schedule after Aug. 8).

Open ice is a great opportunity for unstructured play, the development of creativity and skill, and player-led fun. These are essential to player development--the benefits of the outdoor rink, but with better ice! Time without coaches can foster love for the sport through exploration and the players' initiative to try new skills or organize a game. The players will hear enough from us through the regular season! The lack of scheduled, age-specific times will allow for maximal use of our ice, since you can plan around other activities. This is also the time to build our hockey community. Mites and U8 players can rub elbows with High School Lakers and learn from them. That means it reinforces our goals for the development of people, as well as hockey players. It depends on leadership and on everyone respecting differences in age and ability, recognizing that we are all Lakers.

Players: Bring your friends and teammates, divide up the ice if necessary, take care of each other, be kind, be responsible, and have fun.

Parents: If you bring your kid(s) and there is no adult supervisor, you are now the supervisor! Let's communicate with one another to make this safe and enjoyable for everyone, and let the kids play.

Thanks to the City of Detroit Lakes, everyone that participated in our Summer camp, and for the many volunteer hours you all log each season. Most of all, thanks to John and Dawn Brehm and the Derick Brehm Foundation for the generous financial support that makes this happen. They share our goal of keeping costs down for players and families, helping us to build a bigger, better hockey program.

Thanks for your support of DL Youth Hockey, and I'll see you at the rink.
