The mission of the Greater Haverhill / Pentucket Youth Hockey Program is to administer and maintain a not-for-profit organization designed to support inter-league competition in the sport of hockey. It is our objective to foster good sportsmanship, discipline and teamwork through the execution of structured programs. We will provide for a positive learning experience geared towards developing the fundamental knowledge and athletic ability of our players.
Bring plenty of water, sneakers and athletic attire for off-ice workouts.
Locker Room assignments for Thursday will be posted at the Rink
If you have a Team placement deposit due, please bring a check to the first session to avoid missing out on week 1.
When you arrive, you’ll check in with ITZ. Provide them your ITZ registration form with USA Hockey number. Fred, Pete or Chris will be at an adjacent table to answer any league questions and collect USA Hockey numbers
If you have any other questions, please let a Board Member know.
The wins just keep on coming for the 2014/15 Peewee 2 squad. Jon Farmer's team was enrolled in the Valley Hockey Spring League. Yesterday they took home Peewee South Spring Championship against team "Four66" with a final score of 5-4.
Great work to the Kids and Coaches on a job well done.
