WCYHA PWA Head Coach, Al Haga and PWA Assistant Coach/SQA Head Coach, Eddie MacDonald have been selected to coach the Region 5 Kohlman Cup Teams. Coach Haga will be coaching the Region 5 2001 Team, and Coach MacDonald will be coaching the Region 5 2002 Team.
The Kohlman Cup is an annual all-star hockey showcase tournament that closes the traditional WAHA hockey season. In its 10th year, the tournament pits each of the 6 WAHA regions against one another to determine a statewide champion at both the Pee Wee Major (2001) and Pee Wee Minor (2002) levels. At the conclusion of the two day event, two Team Wisconsin teams, 2001 and 2002, will be selected from the tournament and these players will represent Wisconsin in Minnesota at the end of the summer at a AAA tournament.
The Kohlman Cup is limited exclusively to Tier II Pee Wee Players only and a player must have played Pee Wee for the 2013-2014 season. The Kohlman Cup allows the top Pee Wee age level players in Wisconsin to test themselves against the best Tier II players in each WAHA region in games versus other regions along with a skills session on the weekend.
This season's Kohlman Cup Tournament will be held in Onalaska, WI on April 5 & 6, 2014. Tryouts for the Region 5 team will be held Thursday, March 20 at the Ponds in Brookfield. Visit www.kohlmancup.com for more details and to register.
