HOCKEY AT THE SKATIUM ICE ARENA

It is with extreme sadness that we share the passing of Jeremiah Wiltgen back on July 8th, 2018. During the 2017-2018 season, Coach Jeremiah served as an assistant on our 2007 Squirt 1 SAHA all-star travel team.  Coach Jeremiah was an exceptional hockey coach and an even better person.  As an organization, we are saddened by his passing and offer our thoughts and prayers to the entire Wiltgen family.

We also recognize that this can be a very difficult time for parents and skaters who were close to the Wiltgen family.  Below are a few resources on how to talk with children about the death of a friend or loved one.
