Dear Applicant:

 

            It is with great honor that the Atlantic District (AAHA) of USA Hockey has agreed to setup two high school scholarships in the name of Lou Manzione.

 

            Lou was a very important part of our District.  Not only was Lou the Vice President of the District for Rules and Regulations for 4 years, but also was President of the New Jersey Youth Hockey League for over 10 years.

 

            In addition to his roles within the Atlantic District and the New Jersey Youth Hockey League, Lou had an active coaching career both at the high school and travel levels.  His high school coaching duties included Toms River High School East from 1998 – 2003, and Hudson Catholic High School from 1995-1998.  For travel hockey, he coached both at the Brick Hockey Club and for the USA Hockey Festival Program. 

 

            Lou gave up many hours of his day to help players of all ages.  However, his true passion rested in coaching the high school player, where he hoped not only to impact on-ice development, but more importantly the continuation of the player’s education during and after high school.

 

            Lou will not only be missed by his wife of 33 years and his three children, but also by the entire hockey community in the Atlantic District.
