Pro Action Hockey League is a Success!
Sunday, April 2nd, Mr. Paul Maich was pleased to attend the Pro Action Hockey League Minor Atom and Minor Novice Championship games at Victoria Village Arena and presented Constable David Besco, of 54 Division with a donation of $1080 in support of the League.
The Pro-Action Hockey League is a House League consisting of 2 age groups comprised of 4 teams in each. The League is governed by a neighbouring House League and all Coaches are Police Officers from 54 Division.
Not only does this invaluable program provide opportunity of participation to those that otherwise would not have the chance to play but also promotes dialogue between the players, their families and local Police Officers.
All participants reside within designated “At Risk” areas and both League fees and Equipment are supplied at no cost.
Yearly, the league accommodates over 130 participants chosen from roughly 400 applicants.
The North York Hockey League is pleased to be an ongoing Sponsor of this worthwhile endeavour.
NYHL Adds Two New Life Members
Dave Armstrong (left) and Paul Maich (right)
The NYHL is extremely proud to announce that the Board of Directors has recently added Dave Armstrong and Paul Maich to their prestigious list of “Life Members.”
Dave Armstrong started in 1991 coaching his two boys. He had an “old school” style behind the bench, which usually generated tough and hard working teams.
In 2002 Dave switched roles and joined the NYHL's Board of Directors. He currently acts as the liaison between the league and the Referee Development Committee. In addition, he also serves as the timekeeper supervisor for the NYHL, and if your team is ever playing at Fenside arena, Dave will be there to greet you and stamp your hand as you come through the door.
Dave is one of the rare breed of individuals who is always willing to lend a hand wherever it is needed and he always has the league's best interests at heart. There are many nights when Dave is in an arena and acts as a league representative. He thoroughly loves the game of hockey and that is clearly evident whenever you get the opportunity to talk with him.
Paul Maich currently acts the Chief Operating Office and 1st Vice President of the NYHL. He also served as a long time referee within the league before stepping down to focus on his current positions.
Paul has been an integral part of the rejuvenation of the NYHL and largely responsible for its rapid growth and success. It was ten years ago that he was asked to do a business assessment which was expected to be a three-month project at the time. That assessment quickly turned into a “full time” position overseeing the daily operations of the league. During his tenure the league has seen substantial growth, growing from a mere 267 teams to the current 435 teams. Paul's tireless work ethic, dedication and genuine love for not only the game but the NYHL, is clearly evident in the time he spends working on League projects. He is often in the office early in the morning and stays late into the night.
Congratulations to both Dave and Paul on receiving this prestigious award! It truly is well deserved.
