Winter Weather

That time of the year is upon us. We have our first inclement weather approaching tonight.


Practices - For practices, if the rink is open, practice is on. The HS rink will typically only close for loss of power or extreme weather conditions (like a state of emergency).

Games - The cancelation policy of the games starts at the rink where the game is held.  If the rink closes, then they notify the Valley League, who will then cancel the game on their website.  If you are wondering if the rink is closed, you can look on the Valley League website or their social media accounts. Their website is:

We will monitor the league site, communicate with the city and let you know about a rink closure/game cancelation.  The Board of Directors and Coaches DO NOT MAKE the decisions on game cancelation. Generally speaking, games and practices do not get canceled as the rinks don't like to close.  It is safe to assume most games will be played as scheduled.

Go Thunder!

A fitting date/time will be sent out after successful payment. You will go to TSR Hockey at 5 Kelly Rd. Salem, NH to pick up your equipment before the first session.

Holiday Season Food Drive


 As mentioned in an earlier email, GHPYH has partnered with Emmaus this holiday season to help fill the food pantry with much needed items. We thought this was a great way for our kids to give back to the local community. Over the next two skills sessions, we will be collecting items to help support this worthy cause. We are hoping our program will come through with an assist for those in need.  Emmaus is looking for specific items this year:

Peanut Butter, Jelly, Canned Tuna and Canned Chicken.

They will accept all items donated by us, but are in the greatest need of these items. 

We will have a box set up in the lobby on 11/6 and 11/13. Please bring unopened, non expired items those dates. Thank you all very much.
