Palatine, IL – The Chicago Young Americans (CYA) announces the appointment of a new executive board for the hockey club effective immediately. Joining the Executive Board are Mark Jalcovik, David Vennetti, Andrew Bloomer and Anthony Noreen.
Mark Jalcovik will serve as President for CYA, a role he is well suited for as he is also President of Business Operations for the Tri-City Storm of the USHL.

Mark has been instrumental in the build out of the Orbit Ice Arena and brings a wealth of hockey knowledge to the club.
David Vennetti, Director. Dave played college hockey at St. Mary’s in Minnesota, and is now the majority owner of the Tri-City Storm (USHL) and Orbit Ice Arena.
Andrew Bloomer, Director. Andrew grew up in Utah, but hockey brought him all over North America. He played hockey at Notre Dame College in Wilcox, Saskatchewan, attended Deerfield Academy in western Massachusetts and also played hockey for the Harvard Crimson. He has been involved as a parent and member of the hockey operations for multiple youth programs in Chicago and has been a part of CYA for many years.
Anthony Noreen, Director. Anthony is currently the President of Hockey Operations and Head Coach for the Tri-City Storm of the USHL. He is a two time recipient of the USHL’s Coach of the Year Award and has coached Team USA in the World Jr.A Challenge the past three years.
This is an exciting time for CYA as our new board is committed to creating a development program that is second to none. As we transition to this new era of CYA Hockey we are fully committed to developing athletes on and off of the ice with a year round full service program. When people leave the Chicago Young Americans they will be prepared as people not just for hockey but to be a positive contributor to society.
