NUSE Hockey is seeking coaches at all levels.
We especially need parent coaches at 8 & Under boys and girls. At the 8 & Under levels it is extremely important to have enough coaches, so please consider coaching. You do not need to the be best skater or have played hockey before. Just bring a passion to develop young players and make sure they have fun!
NUSE Hockey prefers Non Parent coaches at Squirt/10u and above levels, if you are interested as a Non Parent coach these are paid positions. Parent coaches also strongly urged to apply.
If interested in coaching please contact Coaching Coordinator Jason Rewitzer at 507-276-2568 or firstname.lastname@example.org

The Tom Macho Award is awarded annually to a community member who has demonstrated dedication to the growth and support of hockey in the New Ulm/Sleepy Eye Community.
This year, John Busch was awarded this honor on NUSE Hockey Day, January 11.
John was involved with hockey in New Ulm starting in the late 1980's as a coach and he continued to coach for over 20 years. John coached at various levels throughout his coaching career advancing teams to District and Regional play. Johns was known to have unconventional coaching philosophies and his players truly loved being part of it. It wasn't all about the wins and losses, it was about the memories that were provided to his players. In addition to coaching John was also a referee for over 20 years. He was referee for many levels of hockey including youth games, High School, Junior and College games.
NUSE Hockey Association congratulates John on his many years of dedication to the sport of hockey in this association and across Minnesota.
Congratulations and Thank you, John!
