    BYHI Hockey Director Role

    Bloomington Youth Hockey Members,


    The Bloomington Youth Hockey, Inc. Board of Directors is searching for a qualified individual for the hockey director position for the upcoming 2018-2019 season. While in previous seasons the hockey director was a partial role held by a member of the board, a dedicated hockey director will more effectively elevate the quality of instruction and competitiveness of the club.


    Following the leading practices of other clubs, the hockey director will leverage their significant player and coach experience in order to develop the strategic direction of player development and oversee the coaching staff. In practice, the hockey director will deliver plans for player development, assist in ice allocation decisions, and regularly meet with coaching staff to discuss practice plans as well as provide feedback. Due to the significant time investment involved in these activities, and the experience desired, there will be a small additional cost (est. $15/mo) to members for this service.


    The hockey director will act in a consultant role to the Board of Directors, provide all recommendations to Board, with the Board retaining ultimate decision making authority. The Vice President of the Board will serve as the liaison between the hockey director and the board in order to provide assurance that results are seen.


    Additional details on qualifications and job description are listed below.
