The West Elk Hockey Association will be responsible for conducting all hockey related programs in the City of Gunnison and The Town Of Crested Butte. The organization is dedicated to keeping participant fees as low as possible while creating a volunteer organization that provides all participants with an outstanding hockey experience. Finally, the West Elk Hockey Association will work to create and manage hockey tournaments in order to expand the potential for participants to play hockey as well as utilize the City of Gunnison and the Town Of Crested Butte’s facilities for economic development purposes.
By transitioning the programming aspect of hockey programs from The City of Gunnison and the Town of Crested Butte’s oversight to our association we will build a larger organization that will depend on user participation. This will achieve a more effective management structure while allowing every participant to have ownership in the process. Fundraising, tournament planning, and marketing revenues are expected to grow. Our goal is to utilize these revenues to offset as much cost as possible in order to ensure that playing hockey is affordable for everyone in the Gunnison Valley. To further the goal of affordability we will build a scholarship fund. We furthermore hope to increase the amount of available funds for scholarship purposes in order to help even more youth players to have the chance to play organized hockey. Finally, we hope to build an endowment that will enable WEHA to reduce youth participant fees once the endowment is of sufficient size to cover the costs associated with participation.
Our community has a cyclical, tourist based economy. The organization of tournaments will help our community by bringing visitors to our area during our slow months while allowing participants to play against more hockey teams and different levels of talent. Hockey has the potential to become an economic engine within our community and we hope to develop that potential.
The West Elk Hockey Association Will be funded by user fees, donations, and advertising revenues. Anyone is welcome to participate in our programs, or become a member of our association.
