Whitesboro, NY— 1/29/2019 — Whitestown Youth Hockey Association is proud to announce that the Pee-Wee 12U Travel team will be attending the Coupe de Monde and
International Pee-Wee BSR Tournaments in Quebec, Canada, with play beginning on February 14th.
This opportunity will be especially meaningful for Assistant Coach Jim Holmes. He has coached teams in two previous tournaments that included his sons. This year, he returns to Quebec with his older son, Joey, as a member of the same coaching staff. “For me, it’s an opportunity to go back for a 3 rd time to a tournament that I consider the single best hockey experience I have had,” Holmes said. “In my eyes, it rates higher than watching my older son win a New York State high school championship or my younger son win a New York State Midget championship.
For these players, it’s an opportunity to compete and interact with kids from all over the world and for their parents to see them wear a USA hockey jersey, representing
This will be the 44 th edition of this tournament and will feature 1,767 players and 498 coaches from countries all over the world.
The Whitestown Pee Wees were offered the opportunity through past experiences that the coaches had in Quebec. The team members and parents have held many fundraisers to assure that each player, coach, and family member were able to attend this amazing event.
Members of the Whitestown Pee Wee Travel Team Are: Daniel Achen, Jack Alcuri, Casey Clausen, John Paul DeSantis, Memhis Ferguson, Jax Hall, David Johnson, Luke Johnson, Jack Kozma, Dmitri Macdonald, Michael Mazzei, Kyle McReynolds, Isabella Nappi, Zackary Neale, Jack Pietryka, Garrett Smith, Mason Stanton and Shea Williams.
The team is coached by Pat Gaffney, who is assisted by Jim Holmes and Joey Holmes.
