House League Registration is Now Open
by posted 08/25/2014
 

The House League is the Shrewsbury Youth Hockey Association (SYHA) Learn-to-Play-Hockey program. This program teaches basic hockey skills to children ages 4 to 7. The program includes skating, hockey skills instruction and hockey games. No prior skating or hockey experience is required, however full hockey gear is required. Our coaches are parents who volunteer their time, hockey knowledge and experience.

 

In response to positive feedback from last year, for the 2014-15 winter season SYHA will again offer a split House League season. This year young players interested in learning the game will have an opportunity to develop their skating and hockey skills over a longer season while also having a shorter session for young hockey players to get a feel for the game.  The SYHA House League Hockey season will be broken into these two sessions but we offer a discount for players who sign up for both sessions.

 

Session One:

The first session will run for six weeks on Sunday mornings at 8:30-9:30 a.m. (Total of 6hrs)

Six weeks of skating and hockey skill development following USA Hockey’s ADM (Athletic Development Model)

Location - Buffone Arena, Lake Avenue Worcester

Begins - Sunday October 5, 2014

Ends - Sunday November 9, 2014

USA Hockey registration is required for every player and on-ice coach

Cost $75 - a great price to give hockey a try.

 

Session Two:

The second session will run for 16 weeks and be Saturdays at 8-9 a.m. and Sundays at 8:30-9:30 a.m. (Total of 32hrs)

16 weeks of skating and hockey skill development following USA Hockey’s ADM model and will include weekly cross ice hockey games. 

*** In years past we have featured the Session 2 HL players during one of the Worcester Sharks intermissions. We anticipate working with them again this year but plans have not been finalized yet. If we can finalize we will let the parents know. This is always a big hit with the entire family. ***

Location - Buffone Arena, Lake Avenue Worcester

Begins – Saturday November 15, 2014

Ends - Sunday March 1, 2015

Team Jersey is provided

Full hockey equipment is required

USA Hockey registration is required for every player and on-ice coach

Cost $350

 

If you register for both sessions at the same time a discount of $25 will be given at checkout. This brings the cost for 38 hours of hockey to $400 or less than $10 per hour.

 

SYHA is a volunteer organization we are always looking for parents willing to get on the ice and help coach our young players. If you are interested in coaching please be sure to check the “I would like to be a Coach” box on the registration page. Contact Patrick Moore at   with any questions.

 

In the coming weeks we will be posting a hockey information guide for new to hockey parents. The goal is to educate parents with some basic hockey information and make the experience a little less daunting. To start you can find a hockey equipment guide here. If you're eager to run out and get equipment Pure Hockey is running a starter kit special. You can find a flyer on the SYHA homepage or follow this link.

 
Thank you,
Patrick

SYHA Schedule
by posted 08/10/2014
 

The schedule is now being populated on the SYHA site. Thus far all games to the first parity, the first week of practices and your fixed weekday practice for the year are on the website. I will be making more updates soon. Here are a few notes:

- Every team has a fixed weekday practice that is not expected to change for the year unless we don't have that hour of ice.

- There will generally be at least one more hour of practice each week that will rotate. These extra practices will be on Wednesday Saturday and Sundays. The extra Wednesday practices will be either at Buffone (Lake Ave) or Northstar. Please make sure you check your location.

- We still have the 6AM practices. We are considering doing something different with them as the season goes forward but nothing has been set in stone. These early practices will be spread evenly among all the teams.

 - It appears league athletics is no longer emailing the organization when new practices are posted so it's even more important to subscribe to the calendar feed or look on the website. Here are he the directions.

1. Go to the SYHA website

2. On the top horizontal bar select your Team

3. On the left vertical bar select Schedule

4. In the main window select Options -> Calendar Feed

5. Select the appropriate feed for your device.

I recommend an update of at least once a day and linking it to some cloud account (iCloud, google)

Enjoy the season and feel free to email if you have questions to info@syha.net

 

Thanks,

Chris
