The Northern Express Board is excited to announce the creation of the Jim Rosequist Scholarship.
As many of you know, Jim Rosequist retired in 2021 after nearly two decades of dedication to the club. Coach Rosequist was a was a fixture at the 10U level in Chicagoland; winning league titles and developing individuals who went on to play at the highest levels of the game. He was a master at simplifying hockey, and teaching the game in a way that resonated with his players. Jim's selfless dedication to the sport and the positive impact he had on the thousands of players, coaches, and parents he crossed paths with over the years is second to none. In this spirit, we have created a legacy for Coach Rosequist in the form of the Jim Rosequist Scholarship.
On an annual basis, the Northern Express Board of Directors will review submitted applications, with the inaugural grant being bestowed this season. All club members are eligible to apply for the scholarship, with a preference going to families that have encountered specific hardships or adversities that make it difficult to financially sustain travel hockey.
Scholarship awards may be granted annually based on both applicants who meet established criteria and allocated resources available as determined by the Board of Directors.
Coach Rosequist, thank you for your irreplaceable service! We are confident that this scholarship will carry on the positive impact you have provided the Express hockey family for years to come.
