Introducing the Director of Hockey

Louisville Ice Cardinals Community:

Over the past few weeks, the KAIHA Board of Directors has been actively soliciting and interviewing candidates for a Director of Hockey for the organization.  This new position will be a key element in the further enhancement of both house and travel programs within our association.  The goal is to provide a resource for players and coaches to further improve on-ice and off-ice training development as well as providing support and guidance to our already strong coaching staff.  We were pleasantly surprised that we received 6 applications to be considered and we are very excited to announce that Louie Abounader has been selected to serve as our new Director of Hockey. 

Please join us in congratulating Louie in his new role! 

In the coming weeks, he will be spending time at the rink becoming acquainted with everyone and gaining familiarity with our programs, parents, coaches, and players.  If you see him, please feel free to introduce yourselves to him, as he is eager to meet everyone as well..

We look forward to the talents and enthusiasm that Louie will be bringing to our association.  Please help us make him feel welcome as he begins his journey with us.

KAIHA Statement on Non-Sanctioned USA Hockey Activities:

The KAIHA Board wants to share information with you regarding teams playing in non-sanctioned USA Hockey games and tournaments. If a USA Hockey registered player and/or team chooses to participate in an unsanctioned event/tournament, they must participate without any connection to USA Hockey and KAIHA. This means they cannot use their USA Hockey team roster, team name, team jerseys and colors or any other reference to the USA Hockey registered team and to KAIHA. Additionally, the USA Hockey medical and liability insurance is voided; therefore, the coaches and player families take on full responsibility for anything that may happen. It is important to note that the tournament may or may not have insurance coverage for teams and participants. Finally, both MidAm and KAIHA discourages teams from being involved in unsanctioned events, but they also recognize that all participants are free to make their own decisions and adjust to the current situation in the manner they determine is fit and appropriate.
