I have have had kids participating in the program for the last nine years. I have coached at house, select, and travel levels for the last six years. I have served on the board as Vice President for the last three years.
My name is Chad Barthel and my wife’s name is Joe Lea. Our son, Ryan, is a second-year peewee and is playing his first year of travel after playing at the house and select levels as a mite, squirt and first year peewee. I am in sales, marketing and employee recruitment. I believe our Fremont hockey program is the best is the state.
My name is Carey and I have served on the board as secretary since 2010. I have a son that plays on the high school club Tiger team, a son that plays squirt house/select and a son that is in Intro to Hockey. My high school player started in first grade and as a family, we have never looked back. As a professional, I have co-founded four startups and been in business leadership roles for over 20 years.
I currently serve as the co-treasurer for the Fremont Flyers and work as the Director of Operations for the Sidner Ice Arena. I have two kids that play in the program as mites and have served as a coach for the mite program for five 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.
