2015 Fall Season Midget Registration and Tryouts

This registration is for the 15 game season of High School Midget hockey that starts in September and concludes by Thanksgiving.

Link to Registration:  http://syha.net/Registration/Default.asp?n=53292&org=syha.net

The cost is 575 dollars and that includes the game jerseys.  Practices are 9pm on Thursdays nights at the Lake Ave Rink. The season ends by the end of November.  As many kids are getting ready for the high school season we will add more practice time later in the season before high school hockey begins to help the kids prepare for HS tryouts.


Bill Dupuis and Daryl Johnson will be back to coach and we will have 2 teams.  Both will play in the Valley League which will require a bit of travel but there will be a number of games at the SportsCenter in Marlboro.  Last season the fall league had 11 divisions and the parity was good for both teams.
 
We will have tryouts in Wednesday April 15th a 6pm and Thursday April 16th at 9pm to place the players on either the 1 or the 2 team.  We will also have the ice on Wednesday April 8th for kids who season ended previously to get some practice time in before the tryouts.  All ice sessions will be at Lake Ave.
 

Contact Kevin O'Brien at   with any questions

SYHA Tryout Schedule 2015-16

Hello SYHA players and families,

It is hard to believe, but it’s that time of year again. It is time to begin looking forward to next season. The SYHA Board of Directors and Tryout Committee are happy to announce the plan and schedule for the Mite, Squirt and Pee Wee tryouts.  Below you will find a schedule of dates for each age group.

“…Shrewsbury Youth Hockey Association is an all volunteer, non-profit youth hockey program.  The philosophy of the founding fathers remains the same to this day; to develop standards of good citizenship, sportsmanship, and respect in an environment that will build healthy bodies and strong minds… SYHA welcomes all children between the ages of four and seventeen who wish to participate in hockey and/or the Learn to Skate program.”

It is still Shrewsbury Youth Hockey’s mission to provide a fun and safe environment for young Shrewsbury residents to play hockey, learn the game, develop their skills, be part of a team and be connected to their community. It has always been and continues to be SYHA’s commitment to ensure that all players are placed on a team.

As a point of explanation and clarification for players experiencing team tryouts for the first time, it is common practice for youth hockey organizations to hold tryouts and finalize team placement in the spring for the upcoming fall.

The Process:

Unlike in recent years, SYHA will be organizing and facilitating its own tryouts and evaluations. In the coming weeks the Tryout Committee will be securing volunteers to assist in the on-ice and off-ice evaluator roles. Each age group will be evaluated, scored and ranked across three key areas with different weighting depending on level:

Areas of Assessment

  1. Age appropriate skill level:
    • skating frontwards and backwards, turning, stopping, cross overs, puck handling, shooting, etc…
  2. Game play and hockey sense:
    • offensive and defensive positioning, playmaking, playing without the puck, etc...
  3. Current coach evaluation:
    • coaches will add input on hockey skills, games sense, attitude, coachability, attendance, etc… (note: in each age group, current coach’s evaluation will carry a small weighting and be used primarily for clarification.) 

Mites will be evaluated primarily on skating and puck handling skills. Actual game play will carry little weighting.

Squirts will be assessed on a balanced combination of skills and game play and hockey sense.

Pee Wees will be evaluated with a much heavier weighting on game play and hockey sense. Skills will be considered, but will carry less of a weighting

Bantams SYHA will continue the Co-Op with the Jr Crusaders at the Bantam level for the 2015-16 season. More information will be coming under separate cover very soon.

On ice coaches to lead the players though a series of drills and game play. A minimum of 4 experienced USA Hockey Certified coaches will evaluate and score every player for each skill set. All skills will be scored on a scale of 1-10 and all scores will be tallied to determine a final ranking from which our teams will be determined.  In addition to the on ice evaluations a minimum of 2 coach’s evaluation will be provided for each current player.

The Schedule:

It is strongly suggested that a player attend both scheduled sessions. Not attending both sessions will not affect a player negatively, but attending both allows the evaluators a chance to better assess each player’s skills. If for any reason your player can not attend either of these sessions please contact Joe Flynn @
