Finally. After many years of hard work and dedication, the persistence of the Revolution Youth Hockey Club has paid off.
The Atlantic Amateur Hockey Association (AAHA), which oversees hockey in the Atlantic District of USA Hockey, has granted the Revolution Youth Organization Tier II status for the 2018-19 season.
It has been a long and winding road for the club and that fact was not lost on President Meghan Christiansen when she was reached for comment. “Three years ago, I had imagined what this moment might feel like. I am over the moon with the AAHA's decision in granting Revolution Youth Ice Hockey Tier II status for the 2018-19 season", she said via phone call late last night. "I would like to thank Glenn Hefferan and the AAHA board for this opportunity."
The Revolution Youth Hockey Club prides itself on the long-term development and a positive atmosphere for its players and families. Meghan added, "It has been my passion to move the organization on a positive path of growth and development for our local hockey players. I want to give a lot of credit to our wonderful Board of Directors, as well as our amazing players and parents who have supported us through the ups and downs of this process. Today, we have succeeded."
The immediate impact on the energy in the building during Wednesday night practices did not go unnoticed by the Revolution Ice Gardens (RIG) General Manager, Geoff Beauparlant. “This is huge for the program and the facility. Meghan and her team have worked extremely hard to provide a great program for their members and this was acknowledged by the AAHA. We, the Rev Family, are excited for what the future may bring for the potential growth of the club.”
Details on the program and tryouts are expected to be released soon. Please follow us on social media and check the RIG website for further updates.
