The Wilmette Hockey Association would like to thank Coach Rafe Aybar for his tremendous service, instruction and support. He provided Wilmette house and travel league players with outstanding skill instruction and motivation for over 30 years! Coach Rafe has moved onto another local program in a similar capacity. The Emperor's wisdom, creativity and wit will be missed.
We also want to congratulate Jay Wilson, former Squirt 1 head coach, on his new role as JV Head Coach in the Latin School of Chicago hockey program. Beyond being a tremendous coach, communicator and leader, he was a total team player--generous, hard working and totally dedicated to the club.
We wish both Rafe and Jay the best!
