Minor Hockey Association families, players, members and volunteers,
wanted to take a moment to introduce myself, my name is Kipp Van
Kuren and I am the new President of Windsor Minor Hockey. Many of
the travel families know me as I have spent the last 3 seasons as the
WMHA VP of Travel. When I started volunteering in 2012/2013 I was
coaching my son in tyke (U7) house league and as he moved through the
ages and eventually into travel I continued to volunteer as a coach.
After one of my coaching interviews I was approached by a Windsor
minor board member who asked me if I had ever thought of joining the
board of directors. At the time I had not considered it, but the
following year I decided to give it a shot and I offered to help.
Since 2018 I have proudly been a part of the Windsor minor board
holding these positions; Director of referees, Scheduler, Travel
director, and VP of travel as well as holding a position on the
Bluewater league executive.
goal as president is to continue to make Windsor minor an inclusive
and progressive organization who’s focus is on creating an
environment of safety, enjoyment and competitiveness. It is
imperative that we support our community, our local charities and our
surrounding partners in hockey. We will strive to help our players
learn to play the game they love with commitment, integrity, respect
and most importantly, with fun.
am honoured to be given the opportunity to be the Windsor minor
hockey association president. I look forward to seeing everyone
throughout the year at the arena and at our WMHA events.
