FROM THE NEST

Our Ravens program is soaring. Thanks to all of the amazing people involved, from coaches and managers to moms/dads, sponsors and volunteers, we take pride in being one of the best girls programs in the country.  From back-to-back (to-back!) State Championship teams, league champions, and big tournament wins, these girls can play!

For many, the hockey experience at KVHA has taught our girls how to set big goals, work hard to reach them, have fun doing it, give back to the community along the way, and achieve anything they set their minds to!  We are really proud of them--ALL of them.

We welcome you.  Whether you are brand new to skating or at the top of your game, we have a place in this family for you.

Girls Program Director

Thank you Raven Nation and All who attended the 3v3 Kindness Tournament

On behalf of KVHA, Michigan Elite Hockey and the Locklear family would like to thank everyone for their support in the KV 3v3 Kindness Tournament on December 28th.  This event has become a staple in the girl's game and it will continue to get bigger and better in the years to come.   We ran 3 sheets of ice this year with over 40 teams in attendance. Plans are already underway for next season as well as some other fun events and training for girls playing hockey in Michigan.

The Locklear family asked us to pass along the note below as well.

The family of Darian Locklear would like to extend their gratitude for your support and participation in the KV Kindness 3v3.  With your support, you will be helping with the Darian Locklear Project for Kindness (more to come on this new foundation) as well as the Darian Locklear Hockey Grant.  This year, we granted a total of $13K to five local players so they can continue to pursue their dreams of playing college hockey.  Thank you again and we hope to see you at the next event this summer!

Sincerely,

Regina & Troy Locklear

 

19U KV Raven, Sarah Lentz, was awarded one of those grants on behalf of the Darian Locklear foundation.  Sarah is currently exploring opportunities that will allow her to play college hockey this Fall.  Congratulations Sarah!  

Thank you!

KVHA Girls Director

Tubbs Signs with Wilkes University!!!!!

Congratulations to Ravens Forward Shauna Tubbs!!! She will be attending Wilkes University in PA to continue her hockey and academic career. Shauna is very excited about the upcoming opportunity both on the ice and in the classroom over the next four years. She intends to study Sports Management or Criminology. She will be playing NCAA D3 hockey on a newly created woman's team there.

“Tubby is an elite level player and a huge addition to the Ravens this season,” commented Tom Hall  “She is a dedicated and hardworking power forward whose attitude, grit, will to compete, battle and never give up play, is infectious and something that is really hard to teach.  It’s these ingredients in her game that will make her a big success at the next level,” added Hall. “I couldn’t be happier." 

"This is an amazing opportunity for Tubby,” commented Coach England.  “She is going where she truly wants to be and that’s the best part of her journey. Shauna’s game has improved all season and I know with her continued hard work, she can be a very good forward in the MAC conference.

I would like to thank my teammates for being there for me throughout my hockey career. We have built a friendship that goes well beyond hockey, and will be life long,” commented Tubbs.  “I also want to thank my family for the support and help they gave me throughout the process. It has been a long journey, full of many ups and downs, and you have always been there for me.” "Ravens are behind you...."Once a Raven...Always a Raven!!!"

Brandi Wilson signs with Trine University

KVHA shares in the excitement of the announcement of another college commitment, as Raven Veteran Brandi Wilson has chosen Trine University to continue her hockey and academic career. “I can’t tell you how excited I am for “B”, commented Coach Hall. “Nothing makes me more excited than seeing a player whose been with us since she was a first year U10 getting a college commitment,” said Hall. “Brandi has been one of those players who have helped to build the Ravens legacy while contributing to the success of the program both on and off the ice. The skilled and speedy forward is one of the original Ravens who was dedicated from the start of the Ravens program. "I am very excited to play college hockey and continue my education at Trine,” said Brandi.   My visits were amazing, and I was ultimately blown away as I knew it was a great fit for me. 

I want to thank all of my coaches during the years for giving me the best scenario to be able to play hockey at the college level.  Thank you to all my teammates who have helped me on and off the ice with anything and everything and for their never ending support and lifelong friendship, it’s been an amazing journey. 

Lastly, thank you to my family for allowing me to follow my dream! " KVHA wishes Brandi the best in her collegiate endeavors!!!!
