GYHA Board of Directors Nominees (Listed Alphabetically)

Genesis Dancer- I grew up in Seattle, WA, and although I didn’t participate in organized sports as a kid, I was almost always outdoors, riding my bike, snorkeling, sailing, kayaking, or just exploring nature. I have lived in Greensboro for 16 years, and it was here that I picked up running and bicycling. Mountain biking in the Lake Brandt area was my favorite activity until recently; this year I started ice skating so that my son and I can do it together, and I’m enjoying skating so much! After participating in the parents vs. kids game, I have a new appreciation for just how hard the kids have worked to learn skating and the sport, and how excellent our coaching staff is. For work, I’m a registered nurse. I work at Moses Cone Hospital in Greensboro, in the cardiovascular ICU. I see firsthand the effects of poor cardiovascular health, and I believe that getting kids into activities at an early age sets a good foundation for them to continue to invest in their health as they get older.


Michael Gerringer- My name is Michael Gerringer and I am a dad of three kids Abriana, Nathan and Christopher. Over the last year GYHA has been a great program for my son Christopher on and off the ice. I would like to join the board as a way of giving back to the GYHA program the way it has given to myself and my son.


Amy Glebov- My name is Amy Glebov, and I am a mom to three wonderful kids, Anayah, Aviel, and Ariella. All of our lives have been incredibly enriched by the GYHA programs. The time I have invested in volunteering for GYHA over the years has added immense value and joy to my life, and have only increased my desire and dedication to work towards the continued success of the GYHA programs, and the youth involved. My love of volunteering for the organization, and the families, is my reason for applying to be on the GYHA Board of Directors.


Don Johnson- My son started playing in GYHA when he was 5 years old and as he fell in love with the game so did I. As he aged up, I started helping coach and then joined the board to help out on that side of it as well. When I stopped coaching on his teams, I started helping with Learn to Play and found out that I believe I enjoy doing that as much as the kids enjoying learning how to play.

Carolina Lady Thunderbirds Ice Hockey Scholarship Program

The Carolina Lady Thunderbirds are offering a scholarship to 20 girls in the Triad!!! 
"Girls ice hockey has shown healthy growth over the past few years in the triad with fantastic support from our community, collaborating with local organizations and wonderful volunteers. This season we will have girls in LTP (Learn to Play) LTG (Learn to Game), 8U girls playing with the local mites program, a full 10-12U team, 14-19U team and our first 12-14U select team playing in the CHL. Last year we were able to help 16 young girls to try ice hockey for the first time! We already have 3 girls signed up for this season so 17 spots remain! Our goal is to have enough girls registering each year to have a team in each 2 year age group."
