BOD Meeting Tonight

Good Morning WYHA Families,

Can you believe that we are in Week 6 of the season already? We hope that you and your player are having fun and enjoying the season thus far.

As we are still early on in the 2019-2020 season, the Board is already looking into the 2020-2021 season. You may already be aware that the current Board of Directors for the organization is running short on membership, leaving critical roles such as Equipment Manager, unfilled for this season. Although we have been able to deliver to the players and teams for this season as a Board, even with fewer members, but when looking to next season, this will not be possible without welcoming new Board Members. 

With several current Board Members completing their terms at the end of this season, we anticipate 5-7 open seats on the Board. We hope to see interest in joining the Board grow throughout this season in order to train and develop the new members on the roles that will need to be filled for the upcoming season. 

Are you new to Hockey? Do you have a mini-mite, mite or squirt currently playing? Is your player aging out of the program and you still want to be involved? Are you interested in ensuring that WYHA has a successful 2020-2021 season? The organization needs YOU!

New Members are welcome to attend any of our upcoming Board Meetings - and we happen to have one tonight!

Hope to see you there!

All Skaters/players must be registered with USA Hockey, the cost is $48.00 per player (see website for updated costs), this is not refundable, please Click Here for registration information.

Projected Ice Time:  Twice a week (with some exceptions, please stay current with Schedule on Website)

Saturday 7:00am to 7:50am (subject to change prior to the start of the season)
Sunday 1:30pm to 2:30pm (subject to change prior to the start of the season)
exceptions include additional cross ice local games and tournaments

Location: Ristuccia Arena, 190 Main Street, Wilmington, MA 01887

This program is an in-house, fun introduction to the game of hockey with an emphasis on skills: stops & starts, edgework, and puck handling.  There are typically two practices a week and as the season progresses, Saturday is dedicated to skill building and Sunday is dedicated to cross ice 3v3 scrimmaging.  Other potential opportunities during the season, depending on timing and availability, include local tournaments and half ice scrimmaging with neighboring programs.  Possible call-ups to mite travel team when players are needed based on coach recommendations.

Goals of this level:

Develop skating and puck control skills of the individual player
Introduce basic shooting and passing skills
Introduce goalie position
Introduce basic game play

Throughout the year, players will participate in a goalie rotation with WYH providing the equipment for the players to try the goalie position. During the cross ice scrimmages, all emphasis is put on going after the puck and not positional play.  During half ice or full ice scrimmages more emphasis will be put on positional play. The primary goal is to develop a solid foundation of skating and puck handling skills to build on in the upper levels of Wilmington Youth Hockey.  

Participants should have skating experience
Ideally have completed a Learn to Skate and Learn to Play Program
Skaters are required to bring their own equipment:
Skates, Helmet, Stick, Elbow Pads, Shoulder Pads, Neck guard, Knee/Shin Pads, Pants, Socks, and Shirt
