BYHI Welcomes Chris Prewitt as Hockey Director

Bloomington Youth Hockey, Inc. recently conducted a search for a hockey director to help guide us in our pursuit of sustaining a quality hockey experience for kids. We interviewed five very good candidates for the position which made it very hard to choose just one. We thank all of the candidates and are glad we had a chance to speak to each of them. The Board of Directors has selected Chris Prewitt to be our Hockey Director and ACE Coordinator for the 2018-2019 season.

Chris and his family live in Bloomington. He grew up playing hockey in Bloomington and Peoria, including Junior Hockey with the Peoria Mustangs.  Chris served as the ACE Coordinator for the MCYHA Sharks from 2013-2015 and he coached the Varsity team for 2 seasons where he won the Lincoln Land Hockey League Championship twice and the Central Illinois Prep Hockey League once. In 2015, he helped create a Midget program for BYHI and in 2015-2016, he coached an 18U team to the NIHL President’s Cup and the NIHL Wolves Cup Championship.

We are excited for Chris to get started so we can work with him to continue offering a quality youth hockey experience in Bloomington.



Shawn McVey

President, Bloomington Youth Hockey, Inc.
