Schedules Updated

Parents,

 I wanted to get an update out to you all on a few key items: 

  • Scheduling – As promised, the Valley League game schedule was posted into early March. I have also posted practice schedules through March 5th.  Check your teams schedules for dates/times.  Squirts-Bantams should expect a few more weeks of games after this schedule completes. Mites will begin playoffs in early March.
  • Winter Fundraiser – Our Winter Cash Calendar fundraiser is in full swing. We will be collecting packets and fundraising money during skills sessions on 1/16 and 1/23.  As a reminder, the minimum that each play must sell is 10 tickets. There is not maximum!  We've given out a number of additional packets to many kids. Who's going to win the prizes?  
  • Learn to Skate Session 2 – Our Winter Learn to Skate session starts up on Saturday 1/13 at 11am. Go to our registration page to get those younger siblings / friends signed up asap.  

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to reach out to a board member or Myself.  Thank you all for your support of our great organization!  GO THUNDER!

WHAT IF?
 
I can’t be there that day? You can start any Saturday. Attendance is NOT mandatory so it’s ok to miss one or more dates.
 
WHAT ELSE?
 
The cost is $100.00 per session (payable at the first skate). We have several ability levels. You will be placed in the proper level by our coaching staff.  GHPYH was founded in 2009 with the merger of Haverhill Youth Hockey and Pentucket Youth Hockey.  We strive to foster athletic development, good sportsmanship, confidence, self-esteem, discipline and teamwork through the sport of hockey.

Winter Update

Hopefully everyone had a great holiday season. 2018 is here, it’s not warm and we’ve passed the midway point of the season.

I wanted to get an update out to you all on a few key items: 

  • Scheduling – The Valley League is slightly delayed in releasing the round 2 schedule. It’s expected out in the next week or so. They have provided a small bridge schedule. Games and practices are posted through the next few weeks. As soon as the rest of the games are released, we’ll add the practices as well.  Check your teams schedules for dates/times
  • Winter Fundraiser – Our Winter Cash Calendar fundraiser is in full swing. We will be collecting packets and fundraising money during skills sessions on 1/16 and 1/23.  As a reminder, the minimum that each player must sell is 10 tickets. There is not maximum!  We've given out a number of additional packets to many kids. Who's going to win the prizes? If you need more packets, let your coach know.   
  • Learn to Skate Session 2 – Our Winter Learn to Skate session starts up on Saturday 1/13 at 11am. Go to our registration page to get those younger siblings / friends signed up asap.  
  • Payments – As a reminder, all final payments were due in the fall. Please go online to your account to check your balance and make any applicable payments.  Please reach out to our Treasurer at    if you need to make payment arrangements.

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to reach out to a board member or Myself.  Thank you all for your support of our great organization!  GO THUNDER!

Winter Fundraiser - Cash Calendar

It's that time of year again! The cash calendars are in and the Winter Fundraiser will begin this week. We'll be handing out packets to each coach/team manager.

This fundraiser is a critical tool in helping us keep our costs among the lowest in the area. The fundraiser has typically raised enough to pay for our march practice ice bill.  It’s also a great way for the kids to give back to our league. Not to mention the chance to have some friends and family win some cash! Prizes range from $100-$500 per day!

As in years past, each player is asked to sell a minimum of 10 calendars, though there is no limit. In fact, the more you sell, the better chances you have to win great prizes like: Bruins tickets, Hill Hockey summer clinic and more!  

As in years past, we’ll use February as our month to draw our winners. Please see you coach Tuesday at skills to grab your calendars.  All calendar stubs and collections are due no later than 1/23/18 to your child's coaches. We’ll be collecting completed stubs and entry fees after the new year.  We'll coordinate times during skills in January to have board members present to collect envelopes.

Thank you for supporting this important fundraiser for the league! 

Go Thunder!

Locker Rooms and Winter Hours

Parents,

 Hope you all had a great Thanksgiving.  With the passing of the holiday, that means the High School hockey teams are back in the building.  So that means a few things:

  1. Practice Times - We will no longer have the 5pm hour as the HHS boys take that slot. So skills sessions will move back 1 hour for each group. And that could mean slightly fewer practices from time to time during the week. As in the fall, we'll have some wednesday practice hours occasionally as well.
  2.  Locker Rooms - Our 6pm practices follow the Haverhill High School Boys.  They use the showers. Please no girls or Moms in the main locker rooms.  Have the girls change in the girls locker room. And if kids need help gettind dressed or tying skates, have them get ready in the lobby. The boys are respectful but are also no shy. Considered everyone warned!

Thank you!

Chris
