Good Morning Families!

Thank you to all the families that were able to attend our Parent Information Zoom Call last evening. We hope that you left the call with a better idea of what the season will hold. We will strive to keep you well informed of changes and updates as we move through the next several week and learn more of how rinks will be handling Covid precautions and procedures. Please visit our WYHA page on Facebook  - as we will use social media for important updates throughout the season.

Just a reminder that we will begin practices this week. You should all have been contacted by your coach to review what is coming up this week for practices & games. If you have not heard from your coach or have any questions - please respond to this email and we will connect you with your Level Director and Coach.

Finally, we have a deadline of TODAY to register your player on the Valley League Roster. This roster is a critical step in the Covid Protocols for rinks and WYHA.

Please visit the link below. You will need your USA Hockey # to complete the registration. It will take less than 3 minutes t complete and is at no cost.



Thank you for your continued support of Wilmington Youth Hockey!

We look forward to our games beginning this weekend! Be well and Have FUN!

Parent Informational Zoom Call 9/8 @ 7:30P

WYHA Parents - 

We are all very excited to get back on the ice, but we also know that we are doing so in unprecedented times. Our first and most important role in delivering the 20-21 Season will be to keep our players and coaches safe and healthy when we are together.

In cooperation with the Valley League, Mass Hockey and USA Hockey, we feel confident in the procedures and protocols that are in place, but fully understand that this season will look and feel like no other. 

We are offering a Parent Informational Zoom call that will take place on Tuesday, 9/8 @ 7:30PM. We aplogize for the lack of notice for this call. We hope to provide you with the most current Covid Procedures and Protocols possible as we go into our first practices and league games this upcoming weekend.

VHL Registration - Action Needed!

Good Evening WYHA Parents,
We are looking foward to having everyone back in the rink later on this week. Before we do that, we must complete the Valley Hockey League Registration site ASAP. Deadline is WEDNESDAY, 9/9!
Please see the link below to the VHL player registration site. You will need your child's USA Hockey Registration #.  Please select your player's Wilmington Team and enter in your Player's #.  We understand that you do not have your child's Wilmington Jersey as of yet - so please enter your child's 1st choice for their number at this time and we can correct this once the Jerseys are in.
Please also take a moment to review the email below from the VHL in regards to the Spectator policy.  WYHA will be holding a Zoom Parent Informational call on Tuesday, 9/8 @ 7:30P. We know that this call is lacking much notice - however we wanted to make sure that we had the most up-to-date information as we begin the season on Wednesday. Please understand that with Covid - everything is subject to change with little or no notice. What we may be doing for protocols and procedures today - could change by the weekend. We will work to keep you well informed as we move through the season.
Call information will be sent in a seperate email.
Valley Hockey League Program Directors,
We are excited to kick off the 2020-21 VHL season on Friday September 11th.  Player and Coach registration/rostering is now open and must be completed by all participants by Wednesday Sept. 9th.
Player Registrations Required by Week 1:
A very important note is that this season the VHL Player Registrations/Rosters must be completed by the first week of VHL games.  The VHL online rostering system allows for each parent to roster their player within 5 minutes from any phone, pad or computer.  The VHL will be utilizing the Team Rosters and the associated player registrations as the means for contact tracing per the requirements of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and the local Boards of Health. Therefore, this process is mandatory and must be completed by the first week of the season. The league office has been informed by several third party rinks that if a player does not appear on the VHL online roster, that player may not be allowed to enter the facility.  Please impress upon all of your parents the importance of completing this process immediately.
Your program Coach & Player registration links can be accessed once you login to your program portal.  Once logged in you will find your links by clicking either "Team Contact" or "Program Players" on the left navigation.
VHL Spectator Policy:
The VHL office has received several questions with regard to spectators at VHL games.  During the first few weeks of hockey games in August, Valley Rinks encountered very few if any issues with players and coaches.  However, we did encounter a vast number of spectators that were unwilling to abide by the State Mandated Covid-19 Guidelines.  Therefore, Valley Rinks imposed a no spectator policy for a 2 week period.  Starting September 11th all Valley Operated Rinks will revert back to a policy of 1 guardian/spectator per player.  However this will be contingent upon the spectators abiding by the mandatory guidelines, which include but not exclusively:  face coverings at all times, social distancing at all times, no parents in any locker room, following the one way enter/exit patterns, 1 spectator per player, etc..  The VHL is hopeful that all parents/spectators can and will abide by these guidelines and we can continue to allow 1 guardian/spectator per player at VHL Games.  Please understand that there are 1 or 2  rinks (private schools) that will prohibit any spectators in order to keep their students safe and this is beyond the control of the VHL.  The VHL will be providing a link on the VHL website with Rink Specific Protocol for all VHL Rinks prior to the start of the season.  Parents will be able to click on the link for each rink prior to attending a game.  

Thank You
Valley Hockey League
