Dave Jackson, our Vice President received the Volunteer of the Year Award at the annual AAHA meeting. Dave was presented the award by Glenn Hefferan, the President of the District, and Colleen Marinari, the Executive Director, as well as the President of the DVHL.
Dave has been a valued member of the Wildcats for years. Nick and Blaise played for the Wildcats, and Dave has been a coach, team manager, and for the past few years, the Vice President. If that isn’t enough, he is also the 1st Vice President in the DVHL.
Dave has been a valuable asset to the Club, and the District, but more important, a valuable and generous friend of many in the Club and District.
Dave, thank you for all you do, and congratulations on being recognized for all of your hard work.

Wildcats Goalie Coach
Coach Gianni Lafratta is entering his 13th season as a coach with experience including middle school, varsity, and collegiate levels. Gianni has dedicated the past 7 seasons to develop beginning goaltenders through clinics and private sessions, always instilling a growth-mindset.
Through Next-Gen Goaltending (NGG), he has coached goaltenders of various levels, including 8U to 18U Wildcats' goalies, using formative assessment and ongoing evaluations to monitor growth and develop with progressive plans based on the needs of each individual goaltender. Next-Gen Goaltending adapts to every goaltender, building both their technical and tactical game. It's through Gianni's NGG vision that goaltenders will continue to develop their game by becoming life-long learners, mastering the basics, evaluating and incorporating new techniques, and providing goaltenders with the opportunity to coach younger net minders.
Gianni is a Level 4 Accredited Coach
