It's been inspiring to see the strength of our Sno-King community this past year while faced with so much adversity. Our staff, leadership team, and Executive Director, in particular, have all taken on many added responsibilities to keep our players and families safe while continuing to provide a positive platform for hockey development and growth. As we shift forward into our 2021-2022 season and beyond, there continue to be opportunities to strengthen and evolve Sno-King's mission, values & culture. To lead us into the next chapter, we are pleased to announce Larry Mana'o as our new Executive Director beginning July 21, 2021. Larry brings an extensive background of experience, including over twenty-five years of experience with Microsoft, DecisionOne, Detto Technologies, Internet Security, Arenas Sports, Lil' Kickers Franchise, Arena Marketing Systems, Washington Youth Soccer, FIFA, Oceanic Football Confederation (OFC), Lake Washington Youth Soccer Association (LWYSA), Crossfire Premier / Select, Football Federation, and American Samoa (FFAS). Larry's unique blend of management, marketing, technology, world-class sports, non-profits, and youth recreational programs' experience allows him to join Sno-King as a seasoned and qualified leader. Larry has lived and worked in our community for over 20 years with his wife and four children. Larry stated, "I'm honored and humbled to be the new Executive Director for Sno-King. I firmly believe we need to provide a great sports experience from coaching, facilities, operations, and support. I will always strive to provide excellence in my efforts to achieve a positive and productive environment for all our families and staff. I love all sports and appreciate what youth sports provide children in their personal development and their education as human beings."
We are incredibly thankful for Clayton Rodgers's leadership this past year as he quickly stepped in with courage and commitment to steer us through this time of uncertainty, helping to secure Sno-King's future. Clayton will continue to be a valuable member of our association, working to Build Players for Life as our 12U A1 Select Coach and 12U Select Division Rep for the upcoming season.
Please join us in welcoming Larry to the Sno-King team and thanking Clayton for his valuable contributions.
