I grew up in Saskatoon SK, Canada playing hockey which led me to Omaha in order to chase a childhood dream at a professional level. Elkhorn NE is now home, my sons have been part of the Fremont Flyers program for the past four years. I believe my background of playing thirteen years professionally provides the necessary experience in order to contribute to the direction of the Fremont Flyers Hockey program.
Fremont Flyers Hockey board members must not only know how to plan and understand the budget, manage the association’s finances, deal with disputes, discuss and carry out ideas. They must also provide a safe and fun environment with the necessary tools in order to develop all players at all levels while focusing primarily on helping instill the characteristics that are a result from playing the best sport in the world.
Justin Quick joined the board in 2022 and is the treasurer. He has three kids, Alexander, Kinsley and Zach, in the association who span from mites to bantams and has more than 12+ years of owning and operating a business from a financial standpoint. He wanted to join the board to help keep the Flyer program as one of the premier in the area.
Alyssia Nieman was elected in 2022 on the goal of raising additional funding for the program and increase awareness for program growth. She brings nonprofit and professional experience along with grant writing to increase additional funding opportunities. She has years of marketing and sales experience to help with fundraising, team merchandise sales and corporate donations.
Her son, Jarrett Anderson, has been involved with the Fremont Flyers since 2013 when he started as a mini mite!
Amy Johnson joins our board of directors in 2023 with a passion for communication and growing the Fremont Flyers program. Amy co-founded and operated a business, LifeLoop, over the last seven years. She has worn many hats and acquired skills in areas of organizational and leadership experience that should prove helpful to the Flyers organization. Amy also has two boys in the program and her husband, Kent, helps coach.
Jason joins the board in 2023 with a passion for hockey that began at a YMCA rink in New Hampshire and led to him chasing hockey dreams in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. Following his playing career he officiated for 15 years before now being involved in coaching. He is most passionate about working to grow girls hockey and help the Flyers program grow at the youngest ages. He has a daughter and son in the program.
I currently support the Fremont Flyers Board of Directors and work as the Director of Operations for the Sidner Ice Arena. I have two kids that play in the program and have served as a coach for the program for over ten years. I love having the opportunity to work with kids and have enjoyed watching the program grow from barely having enough kids to play as a team to an organization with over 200 participants and teams that participate at the top of their divisions throughout the Midwest. I have been with the organization and the arena since day one and take pride in seeing the growth and development of our organization and look forward to the continued success of our program in the future.
