The Triad Hockey Alliance (THA) was formed in 2015-16 as a joint collaboration between the Greensboro Youth Hockey Association (GYHA) and the Winston Youth Hockey Association (WSYHA) to help grow youth hockey in the Piedmont Triad of Central North Carolina, by fielding combined travel teams at various age levels. The combined effort was a year in the making, and was put together out of a need to better serve members of the two organizations. Due to the success of this joint effort it was determine by the founding organizations to formalize the Triad Hockey Alliance for the 2019-20 season as its own not for profit entity with a dedicated Board of Directors and operations.
The Triad Hockey Alliance program consists of competitive travel teams at various levels of play at the U10, U12, U14, U-16, U-18 age groups as well as a Rec League component. Development programs including Mite and Learn-to-Play programs continue to be spearheaded locally within the GYHA and WSYHA organizations.
The initial nine-member Board of Directors (BOD) was appointed jointly by the Greensboro Youth Hockey Association (GYHA) and the Winston-Salem Youth Hockey Association (WSYHA) to provide oversight and governance to the organization and would serve an initial two-year term.
These terms expire in the spring of 2021 and requires the THA membership to nominate and elect a new Board of Directors. The upcoming election of the BOD will have nine members with three serving a one-year term, three a two-year term and three a three-year term. The new BOD will take office on May 4, 2021.
As per the THA Bylaws a nomination and election procedure were established to guide the process. The first step in the election process is the nomination of individuals interested in serving on the BOD. Nominations open on January 16 and close on February 16, 2021.

The only way to make the association better for its members is to participate in some way and serving on the Board of Directors is one of those ways.
