IYHA Newsletter January 2004

From the President

We are moving along in the 2003 * 2004 Irondale Youth Hockey Season. Players are improving their skills and having fun! Many teams have taken to the outdoor ice rinks. Players are skating at the outdoor city rinks and in backyard ponds and rinks. This is great to see! Truly a Minnesota tradition!

As we continue through our season and celebrate the New Year, remember to have fun and keep learning!

Brad DeKanick, President
