I am so excited to tell you all that Corey Allen will be the new Director of Youth Hockey in Steamboat. From the start, Corey has shown that he wants this job and is committed to the development of the players in this association. The process of hiring a new hockey director takes time, the Association Board is very thorough and wants to do a good job finding someone who fits the job description and meets the needs of the players, coaches, and hockey community. Corey has a great background in hockey, and most importantly, he has a plan for the future of Steamboat Hockey.
I look forward to seeing Corey in action, and am confident that he'll do a wonderful job for you all.

Attention ALL PLAYERS, MANAGERS, COACHES, BOARD MEMBERS...we're going for the Guinness record for "most hockey players in one photo"! This coming Wednesday, March 5th, be ready to go on ice at 6:30 sharp for photo. Players wear skates and jerseys (red or blue)...and a big smile!
What is SafeSport you ask?
Abuse of children at the hands of youth coaches and volunteershappens and because of recent scandals USA Hockey has taken measures to implement child protection safeguards and ensure all personnel, children and members feel confident and comfortable speaking out. The USA Hockey SafeSport Program was designed to provide clear guidelines and expectations for all players, coaches and organization members on:
- Abuse or misconduct prevention strategies
- Appropriate behavior
- Effective response to concerns
- Training and education
CAHA decided that it was a worthwhile program and has required that all associations implement a SafeSport program. Please see the entire handbook here: Safesport Program Policies and Procedures
The Mite Jamboree was a hit this past President's weekend. Thanks to all the volunteers that made it happen! Special shout out to Keith Wilson, Sherri Sweers, Pete Kenney, Cathie Webb, Merideth MacFarlane, and Kristin Stevens for organizing food donations and sales, awards, goodie bags, sale of merchandise, and making sure all goes well...(like taking care of rogue pit bulls!). Also, thank you to Mike, Mike, and Dimitri and rink staff for keeping the ice in top shape! And let's not forget Brian and the refs! Lastly, the coaches and parents, you are awesome!

Hello everyone! My name is Corey Allen and I'm excited to serve as your next Director of Hockey.
Steamboat Springs Youth Hockey Association is a family I am proud to join in this capacity. I look forward to working with the players and our well respected team of local volunteers, continuing the legacy of excellence developed over the past 21 years.
I would like to give you a little background about myself. I grew up in Anchorage, Alaska. After completing college I accepted a job with Shell Exploration and Production Company. My six year career was spent in Alaska, the Gulf of Mexico and most recently, the Rocky Mountain Region. I have since resigned from Shell and spent the past year living in Steamboat Springs. My career change was strongly due to my desire to be a part of this wonderful community.
One of the most attractive parts of this community is the overall commitment it has to providing outstanding youth programs. SSYHA is one such program and I had the opportunity to utilize my 26 years of hockey experience last year as the coach of the Squirt B team. Due to that experience and my true passion for the sport, I decided to apply for the position of Director of Hockey.
I can't wait to start contributing my part to an already growing association. My focus is long term. I look forward to building a shared vision between coaches, players, and parents. I intend to achieve this by instilling values that reach beyond the ice rink. In addition to developing hockey skills, teamwork, and leadership, our kids will be active participants in the classroom and will be encouraged to be community volunteers. Anxiously awaiting the start of the season!
Corey Allen, Director of Hockey
