Program launches Holly Frank Excellence Fund

August 27, 2023

The Ohio AAA Blue Jackets are proud to announce the launching of the Holly Frank Excellence Fund. The purpose of this fund will be to provide education, resources and support for our players, coaches and parents at no additional cost to our families.

A loving mother, wife and friend, Holly Frank dedicated her life to serving others. A woman of faith, Holly modeled the way of what it means to be a servant leader. It was her everyday focus to prioritize the growth and well-being of others. In addition to her hard work as our program's billet coordinator, Holly was passionate about us achieving our mission to develop our student-athletes to reach their full potential in life. She was a believer in the every day process of getting better and a huge proponent of the growth mindset.

With the creation of the Holly Frank Excellence Fund, the Ohio AAA Blue Jackets are committed to ensuring that the boys and girls in our program possess the tools and develop the necessary skills to be successful in all facets of life. Areas of impact that this fund will support include leadership development, team building, mental health and awareness, mentorship, coaching development, parent education, career networking, scholarships, nutrition, certifications and community service.

With this holistic approach, we are building PRIDE in the program by keeping our focus on our guiding principles - process, respect, integrity, determination and excellence.

As a non-profit 501-c3 organization, the Ohio AAA Blue Jackets program prides itself on being the premier youth hockey program in Ohio. With an every day mission to develop our student-athletes to reach their full potential on and off of the ice, the program aims to provide a healthy and safe environment for the elite player to grow as a player, person and teammate through the great game of hockey.
