Mayor Proclaims ‘Jackson Youth Hockey Appreciation Day’
JACKSON, WY (November 5, 2018) On what would be the 29th year of Jackson youth experiencing the great game of hockey and developing their hockey skills to the best of their ability, Mayor Pete Muldoon proclaimed November 11th as “Jackson Youth Hockey Appreciation Day" at Monday night's Town Council meeting.
To mark the appreciation day, Jackson Youth Hockey has partnered with USA Hockey to provide a Girls Try Hockey For Freeevent, Sunday November 11th from 1:45 pm - 2:45 pm at the Snow King Sports and Events Center.
While the Jackson Youth Hockey has also helped with local Senior Division A Jackson Hole Moose Hockey Team's popularity, Mayor Muldoon says the program is beyond that. "The thousands of volunteer hours behind the program and the interaction they have with the community, the sport, and the mentorship is tremendous," recognized Mayor Muldoon.
“Thank you to the Jackson Town Council and Mayor Muldoon for the recognition,” said assistant coach to the program, Mike Sullivan. “The entire organization and the 285 players who will lace up their skates for the red and black this season are extremely proud to be recognized by the council.”
There gathered in the town hall to partake in the special announcement were Bantam A players, ages 13-14, and their coaches who for the second weekend in a row brought home a tournament championship banner. This past weekend it was at the High Mountain Shootout tournament in Utah after going 3-1 in pool play, the Moose defeated SLC Lightning 3-2 in the U14 Bantam A championship game. The weekend before, it was an overtime thriller with a game winning goal against rival Littleton, CO for the tournament win.
