Organized amateur hockey in the Washington, D.C. area developed in large part through the perseverance and dedication of John Crerar. John was one of the founders of the Cap Boys youth hockey program, served as the President and co-founder of the Capital Beltway Hockey League, was the President of the Southeastern Amateur Hockey Association, and served for many years as a Director of USA Hockey. John passed away on October 14, 2006. To honor John’s contribution to our hockey community the Potomac Valley Amateur Hockey Association has established the John Crerar Hockey Development Grant Program.
As you recall. Chris Dernetz passed away while on vacation in Hawaii.
Chris was on the Affiliate Board of Directors and was the Affiliate Treasurer. He served as the Affiliate Background Screening Coordinator. He was also active with the Baltimore Area Special Hockey Association and the USA Warriors Hockey Program. Chris was also an Associate Registrar for the Southeastern District some years ago.
The affiliate has created a new grant to honor Chris's envolvement for Disable Hockey. See the document to the right for more information.
