2018-2019 Season Updates

Good Afternoon,

 Baseball and Lacrosse seasons are upon us but the GHPYH Board has already begun our preparation for the new season. We have a number of items to update everyone on so my apologies for the lengthy email.

Team placements have been sent out as of April 18th. If you did not get an email, please go to our website to see your childs team.

At our April 11th Board of Directors Meeting, we tallied your votes for the (6) 2018-2020 openings.  Returning to the board are Fred Bishop, Shawn Guertin, Jarod Soucy and Chris Baker. Joining the board, please welcome our newest members, Megan Arivella and Anthony Bonfiglio.

Returning to the board with 1 year of service remaining are: Pete Leblanc, Todd Arivella, Jamie Buckley, Bill Mahoney, Adam Hurrell and John Abromovitch.

 

At the April 26th meeting, executive officers were voted on and assigned as follows:

Clerk: Fred Bishop

Treasurer: Jamie Buckley

Vice President: Pete Leblanc

President: Chris Baker

Lastly, at the April 26th meeting, we finalized the tuition and fees schedule for the 2018/19 season. I am happy to report that, through our budgeting process, we were able to hold tuition rates flat for the upcoming season:

  • Instructional Mites (Mite 4) - $900
  • Travel Mites (Mites 1-3) - $1400
  • Squirts, Peewees and Bantams - $1800
  • Midgets - $700
  • Full time goaltenders will receive a 40% discount
  • 3rd child discount of 50%

The Valley League is projecting a 3rd straight year of increases to game fees.  Through the boards fiscally responsible approach, we’ve been able to absorb this cost into our current operating budget.  One of our key charters is to maintain an affordable and competitive program for the area youth. We continue to meet this goal and provide some of the best value in the area.

One change we have made relates to our skating skills vendor. We have listened to your feedback both through our survey and at the rink. We are happy to announce we have partnered with Pride Hockey and Jeremy Tabb to conduct our Summer and Fall Skills session. Jeremy brings over 20 years of skating development that is technical and corrective actions based. Jeremy is a coach for the Valley Jr Warriors Junior program and is the skills instructor for their club programs as well. We are thrilled to have Jeremy aboard for the upcoming season.

Much like our past few years, the tuition fees include all the following benefits:

  • Summer Skills Session (9 weeks)
  • Fall Skills Sessions (15 weeks)
  • 35 Game Valley Hockey League Schedule (25 for mites, 13 for midgets)
  • 2+ Practices per week
  • 25-week Goalie skills session with Mike Lane and ITZ Goaltending for goalies
  • Practice Jersey
  • Game Socks

These fees are inclusive of the $100 tryout deposit which was already paid. The first installment payment is due May 15th.  The remaining payment schedule is available in the attached picture and listed online

Please go online and make your team placement deposit ASAP. You will be unable to participate in Summer Skills sessions until this deposit is made.

Thank you,

Chris Baker

President - GHPYH Board of Directors

GHPYH 2018/2019 Tryout Registration

Registration for the 2018-2019 season is now open!

It will remain open from now through March 17, 2018.  All registrations are done online through our website. The tryout registration fee is $100.  This non-refundable fee is due prior to evaluations and will be applied to the 2018-2019 tuition.  Please note that Peewees and Bantams will be asked to list their position preference.  This is not required for Mites and Squirts.

Registration will close on March 17th to allow GHPYH time to determine approximate sizes for each tryout session to allow evaluators to provide the fairest evaluation. Therefore, it's critical to pre-register.

 

Tryouts for the 2018/2019 season will be held on the following Tuesdays and Thursdays in March at the Haverhill High School Veteran’s Rink:

Midget evaluations will take place in the fall, if necessary. We'll be placing Midget players according to the school that they attend.   However, registration is still required to ensure your place on a team this fall.

We anticipate the above schedule for each age group but may change day of the week based on registration volume at each age group.  Dates and times will be confirmed as we get closer to the tryout dates. 

 

Please continue to check our website for more information as it becomes available. We anticipate the above schedule for each age group but may change the day of the week based on registration volume at each age group.  Dates and times will be confirmed as we get closer to the tryout dates.
