We are so very PROUD to announce that our own Julie Sharbaugh was named the Hockey Mom of the Month for March 2021 by the Pittsburgh Penguins!!
Julie has 3 sons who play hockey for IYHA and she is currently the team manager for one of our 12U teams. Julie is always the person you can count on to lend a hand and is always willing to volunteer to help out the cause. You can always find her at the rink because she probably spends the most time there other than the staff
Please join us in congratulating Julie for this well-deserved award!!
Julie wanted to add her own THANK YOU to Todd VanHorn, Berkshire Hathaway Reality, and the Pittsburgh Penguins for their on-going support of Youth Hockey. In addition, a special Thank You to Stephanie Armstrong and Christy Makdad for nominating her!
