Kelly Clymer has been appointed the new TAHA Coach-in-Chief effective immediately. Kelly is a familiar face in the Dallas hockey scene and has been one of the most successful coaches in the region with a reputation for developing his players both on and off the ice.
Kelly replaces Jouni Lehtola who held this role since 2006. Jouni brought a distinctive style to the development of Texas/Oklahoma coaches and his passion and love of the game helped launch the careers of dozens of bench bosses. Jouni steps away from the CIC role to allow him time to pursue a new opportunity with the Dallas Stars' Xtreme Team; working with Dwight Mullins to develop the next generation of players.
We thank Jouni for his years of service to TAHA and wish him well in his new endeavor.
Watch the TAHA web site for information about the full slate of coaching clinics coming later this year.

The TAHA Board would like to extend our congratulations to VP Mark Servaes who was elected to fill the remaining one year term on the District Director position previously held by Dean Brandstetter from Idaho.
Mark has been a tireless volunteer and drives a number of key initiatives for both TAHA and the Rocky Mountain District. His election to fill the remaining term is a clear recognition by all the Affiliates in the District of the substantial contribution he makes.

The TAHA Board of Directors would like to extend our congratulations to TAHA Registrar Darla Thompson who today was named as the District Registrar for the Rocky Mountain District. Darla has been a tremendous asset to our Affiliate and we have come to rely heavily on her attention to detail, organizational skills and passion for our game.
We certainly understand why the RMD and USA Hockey wanted her to play a bigger role and we couldn't be more thrilled that she has received this recognition of a job well done.
Please extend your best wishes to Darla when you see or talk to her.
