GHPYH 2016/2017 Tuition Rates & Deposit Due

Good Afternoon,

  Last week, the Greater Haverhill Pentucket Youth Hockey Board of Directors held its monthly meeting.  We finalized our budget for the 2016/2017 league year.

We once again listened to your feedback during the annual survey. We took that feedback and combined it with our existing enhancements from prior seasons and are happy to report a few changes for the upcoming season:

  • Summer Skills Session – Back by popular demand, Summer skills will continue for the GHPYH program. For this year, and previously announced, we have partnered with HILL HOCKEY CLINIC. This 9 week program will begin June 13th and 15th.  The coaching staff at HHC is dedicated to developing fundamentals and team building, power skating, conditioning, on ice force application, agility, quickness, scoring and off ice work. This is open to all age groups except instructional mites (Mite 4). Dates of clinics are listed on the website. All sessions will be held at Newburyport’s Graf Rink.
  • Eddie Hill Skill Sessions: Feedback remains extremely positive regarding Eddie, Kelly and the staff at Hill Hockey Clinic.  We recognize the great value that they provide.  We are pleased to announce that we have retained Hill Hockey Clinic for the fall skills session in 2016 and EXPANDED the sessions to 15 weeks. This will take us right until the Christmas Holiday with the folks at HHC.

All these added benefits are in addition to the existing benefits previously included for all travel teams:

  • 35 Game Valley Hockey League Schedule (Slightly less for mites)
  • 2 Practices per week
  • 15 week Skills Session with Eddie Hill
  • 25-week Goalie skills session with Mike Lane and ITZ Goaltending for goalies

We are happy to announce that we are able to maintain tuition rates at the same rate as last season.  We have approved the following tuition for the 2016/2017 season:

  • Instructional Mites (Mite 4) - $800
  • 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%

These fees are inclusive of the $100 tryout deposit which was already paid. The first installment payment is due June 10th

Respective deposits due are as follows:

  • Instructional Mites (Mite 4) - $400
  • Travel Mites (Mites 1-3) - $500
  • Squirts, Peewees and Bantams - $500
  • Midgets - $300

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,

GHPYH Board of Directors

Sean Campbell

Dear Members,

We were very saddened to hear about the recent loss of Sean Campbell to colon cancer, after a courageous two-year battle. Sean was only 47 years old and leaves behind his wife Michelle and two sons (Trevor and Tanner); both boys played for our GHPYH program. Tanner just completed his senior year on the Haverhill High School Hockey Team

Sean will always be remembered as being a great guy, and a good coach. Even after his diagnosis he always had a smile on his face. Our program was very fortunate to have had him volunteer and help the GHPYH program. He will be dearly missed by the members of our hockey community.

If you knew Sean or his family, and would like to make a donation in his name please click on the link to their Go Fund Me account below:

Thank you,

2016-2017 Registration Online Open!

Registration for the 2016-2017 season is now open! It will remain open from now through March 15, 2016.  All registrations are done online through our website. The registration fee is $100.  

 

This non-refundable fee is due prior to evaluations and will be applied to the 2016-2017 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 15th to allow GHPYH time to determine approximate sizes for each tryout session in order to allow evaluators to provide the most fair evaluation. This is why it's critical to pre-register.

Midget Evaluations will take place in the fall, if necessary. We'll be placing Midget players according to the school that they attend.   

 

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 day of the week based on registration volume at each age group.  Date's and times will be confirmed as we get closer to the tryout dates.  

 

Registration for our 2016-2017 Learn to Skate and Learn to play programs will open after travel team evaluations and selections and remain open throughout the summer.  
 
If your child is trying out as a GOALIE, they will tryout with their assigned age group (Mite, Squirt, Peewee, Bantam).  Goalies will be evaluated at the group sessions. 
 
You must register online at our website, www.hpthunder.org and click on the “Register Online” button, or directly by clicking HERE.  The non-refundable cost for registration is $100 BEFORE March 15th, or $125 the 1st day of tryouts.   In order to ensure we have the appropriate number of players at each tryout, you MUST PRE-REGISTER prior to tryouts. 

  • All Levels and Players: please make sure to attend the tryouts at the times assigned for your group. You must attend ALL sessions.  This is established to maintain fairness in the rating process and is not optional. 

  • Your 2015/2016 League fees must be paid in full in order to tryout. Please contact the treasurer with questions about your tuition

  • League Fees will be finalized after tryouts once we have a finalized number of program participants.
