Our Edge Mission
Rochester Edge Girls Hockey was established to promote girls ice hockey in the Greater Rochester area. We are an independent organization currently affiliated with the Rochester Youth Hockey, Monroe County Youth Hockey and Perinton Youth Hockey organizations. We are committed to placing every girl who is interested in hockey, from beginner to elite player, on an age-appropriate and skill-appropriate team that will maximize their athletic development and grow their love for the game. On a yearly basis, we strive to field the most competitive all-girls teams possible across several age groups and skill levels. We also fully support any girl who chooses to develop their hockey skills while playing on a traditional co-ed team. Our coaching staff is dedicated to teaching sportsmanship, character and teamwork by creating a fun environment that fosters a winning attitude.
Edge - New Organization Structure (2015)
The Rochester Edge Girls Hockey organization is pleased to announce a restructuring of their leadership team. This restructuring includes the establishment of a Board of Directors that will operate independent of any specific youth hockey organization. Rochester Edge will continue its affiliation with the Rochester Youth Hockey and Monroe County Youth Hockey organizations and will seek to grow more partnerships with other local youth hockey organizations in an effort to provide the best opportunities for girls to play hockey in the Rochester area at whatever level they choose.
Kevin Yackel has been named President of the Rochester Edge Girls Hockey organization. Additionally, Ned Corbett has been named VP of Coaching Development and Craig Towne has been named VP of Player Development. Current MCYH Girls Director, Mike Bension, and RYH Girls Director, Tom McDonald, will also be involved with the organization at an advisory level. As part of this organizational change, the Edge will be actively seeking to fill additional positions of their leadership team.
