Dear PJW Hockey Family:

The 2017/2018 season is upon us and we are excited to get back on the ice. As we mentioned to you in August, when we sent out our strategy for the year , we need your help to accomplish our goals.  We not only need your help, we want it and we want to tap into our great PJW family for your connections, talents and ideas. 

We have parent advisor openings on a handful of our Committees and we would like to solicit interest from you.  We would like to keep our Committees small so that they can be efficient and effective in helping the board execute the strategy so we will not be able to accommodate all requests.  Each Committee will have at least one member of our Board as a part of the Committee to facilitate the discussions and provide guidance.

As a reminder, our strategy focuses on four main pillars that will help us achieve our mission to create and facilitate an environment and culture that provides a great experience for our kids, develops life-long leaders and graduates quality hockey players and citizens. The goal of the Committees will be to focus on the specific issues of that Committee and the tactics that will help accomplish these key strategies. The pillars of our strategy include:

  1. Develop our kids on and off the ice
  2. Make hockey affordable
  3. Create a culture of engaged kids, parents and coaches
  4. Stabilize our program’s future

 We have openings on the following Committees:

  • Fundraising- Focus on raising money from the community in order to make hockey more affordable for our families.
  • Culture and Community- Focus on community and culture in order to teach our kids the value of service to community as we develop life-long leaders and a focus on maintaining a culture that encourages our players to remain in Portland.
  • Communications- Focus on techniques and technology to improve our communication to our PJW families and the Portland hockey community.
  • Tournaments- Focus on improving our tournament experience and enhancing the PJW brand in order to bring diverse teams to our tournaments.

We look forward to hearing from you.
