2019 CIP Summer Hockey Camps
My name is Vandy Inman. I am the parent of a 2010 hockey player who has been playing at the CIP since he was three years old. I am a Senior Contracting Officer with the United States Navy at NIWC (formerly SPAWAR). My role as a Senior Contracting Officer involves making sound and objective business decisions on behalf of the United States taxpayers as well as mentoring and training junior members of my team. I award multi million dollar contracts buying IT services for the US Military.
Additionally, I am the current Vice President for the Figure Skating Club of Charleston, where I have served in this capacity for the last three years. I serve as the committee chair for the Constitution and Bylaws committee. I also mentor a FLL Robotics team through the Hanahan Recreation Department.
I have been the 8U/mite select team manager for the past three seasons. I have managed 5 teams with a total around 40 kids. As the program was not an established program, I took initiative and made it to what it is today. These teams have been competitive and been able to learn of the skill levels of players from other programs prior to entering the Jr. Rays program. I have also orchestrated three successful jamborees hosted at the CIP.
I look forward to serving as the Vice President of the CYHA and continuing to grow the sport of hockey in the lowcountry.
My name is Greg Byrne, I am the current House Commissioner and have a 10-year-old son McGregor in the travel program and a three-year-old daughter Tilton already on skates and yelling from the stands. I grew up in upstate New York and played hockey from a young age and into my adult years. While I have my coaching credentials, I find my role is better suited on the sidelines. Our family’s “path” in hockey has given me a good understanding of the importance of a strong House and Travel program, goalie development and retention, and helping those players and families who want more competition, without underserving those who don't. I want to help players enjoy the game and remove any obstacles for them that may prevent that.
In my professional life as a reliability engineer, I've spent over 15 years supporting the Department of Defense as a civilian and prior to that 8 years’ active duty Navy as a Surface Warfare/Supply Officer. Those opportunities have allowed me to become proficient with planning, organization, and communication all of which I feel are necessary skillsets for a successful hockey program. I am also very active in STEM initiatives and lead the SeaPerch/SeaGlide Underwater Robotics program for the Charleston region in addition to helping mentor my son’s robotics teams at his school. I am motivated to promote a balance of sports and academics within the CYHA to ensure all of our players are equipped for success at those important life decision points.
As candidate for House Commissioner, I will strive to do what is best for all of our players and continue growing our already strong and competitive programs. Let's work together to make that happen.
