March Updates, Weather and Registration


 First off, thank you to everyone who made it out the Garibaldi Club Saturday. It was a great night all around. We raised some money, had some laughs and got to hear an epic speech from Wilbur. That alone was worth the price of admission. Special thanks to Todd and Wilbur for taking the lead in organizing a great event. Let’s try for multiple nights out next year!

If you thought you were out of this winter, guess again!   The storm headed our way looks like a big one. The rink will have final say on what we do as far as skills tomorrow. As soon as I hear from them, I will communicate to everyone online and via Facebook.

Registration is open for the 2017-2018 season. Tryouts begin next week – 3/21. In order for your child to be placed on a team, he/she must be registered in advance of the tryout process. Please go online and register ASAP. We’ll shut the registration down over the weekend to finalize pinny numbers for our tryout company.

Lastly, please ALSO register for your jerseys for next year.  This is a new feature for the 2017/18 season.  We will have sample sizes throughout tryouts for kids to see what size they will need. Each parent will be responsible for completing a Jersey order form during the tryout process. Once TSR finalizes the form, I will distribute out to all of you.

As always, if anyone has any question, please let myself or a board member know.  Good luck the rest of the season! Go THUNDER!

Mite 1's Win it All!

What a weekend it was for our top Mite team!  After securing a spot in the championship game with a convincing 10-2 victory over North Andover on Saturday, they took the ice Sunday afternoon against the Chelmsford Mite 1 squad.  It was a tight game throughout, and the referees were doing everything they could to let the kids play.  Chelmsford held a 2-0 lead late in the 3rd period.  With some timely shifting of the lines by Coach Rick in the 3rd period, our team was swarming Chelmsford.  Matthew Costa scored two goals to tie the game up with a little over 3 minutes remaining. It appeared this game could be headed to overtime when Andrew Seamans picked up the eventual game winner with just under 2 minutes remaining. The kids hung on to secure the first championship for GHPYH this season.

Thank you to Coaches Rick Lecolst, Don Ackerman and Paul Seamans for their time and energy this season. 

Congratulations Mite 1’s on a great season!

2017 - 2018 Registration Information

Registration for the 2017-2018 season is now open!

It will remain open from now through March 18, 2017.  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 2017-2018 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 18th 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.


New for 2017/2018 Jersey ORDERS - All Players (Mite, Squirt, Peewee and Bantam) will be responsible for purchasing two (2) jerseys this season. Each parent will be responsible for filling out a form on the first night of tryouts. The form will include your requested size, preferred jersey number (up to 4 numbers may be requested), and players information. Jerseys may be used for multiple seasons.  Total cost of jerseys is $100. Please register for your specific program then complete the jersey registration. The jerseys will be a new color, brand and style which are different from the current jerseys we have.


The evaluation times are not finalized at this time. This will be communicated as we get closer to evaluations; however, we anticipate these dates for each evaluation:


Tuesday, March 21 - Mites / Peewee
Thursday March 23 - Squirt / Bantam
Tuesday March 28 - Mites / Peewee
Thursday March 30 - Squirt / Bantam


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.


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.  


Registration for our 2017-2018 Learn to Skate and Learn to play programs will open later this summer.

If your child is trying out as a GOALIE, they will tryout with their assigned age group (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 18th, 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 2016/2017 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.

  • You must register and pay for your Jerseys in advance


  1. Register your player for his/her specific tryout age group.

  2. Register your player for his/her jerseys (sizes/numbers will be requested at tryouts)

If you have any questions, please email Chris Baker at or Fred Bishop at

Shaw's of Plaistow with the assist

We'd like to extend a stick tap and thank you to the Shaw's Supermarket in Plaistow and their General Manager Phil Scarponi. They made a $500 donation to our program for the 3rd consecutive year. The check was accepted by members of our Squirt 1 team, with an assist from Logan and Nathan.
Thank you very much Shaw's and Phil!
We appreciate your continued sponsorship of our program.
