WYHA Selection Requirements

In an effort to provide more transparency to the tryout selection process, the WYHA Board is making the 'selection committee requirements' form available for all parents/players to read.  Each member of each level's selection committee has been required to sign this form in order to participate on a committee and follow it's guidelines.  This document outlines the WYHA methodology for evaluating players.  It also identifies the ranking process, the evaluation weights and the explicit requirement to keep information private and confidential - prohibiting the sharing of information outside of the committee and board.

WYHA Selection Requirements

If you should have any questions having reviewed this document, we welcome your feedback.  The BOD will take your input under advisement for the future.

Thank you,

WYHA Announcement on Changes to 8U & 6 U players

Wilmington Youth Hockey, a member of Massachusetts & USA Hockey will be combining the Mite & Buzzers program starting in the 2017-2018 season.  This new program will be broken out as follows:

  • Mite Travel (8U).  This level will be open to players born in 2009 & 2010 for 2017/2018 season and there will be a maximum of 3 teams.  Tryouts will be held for placement of players to these teams.  Players who are not placed on Mite Travel are eligible for Mite In-House.  Mite Travel will play as part of the Valley Hockey League’s Mite level and will play a full cross-ice schedule of approximately 25 games plus playoffs, as well as practices and skills.  Any player younger than age 7 who currently plays for a WYH Mite team will be grandfathered into Mite Travel.
  • Mite In-House (8U & 6U).  This level is open to players born in 2009 and younger.  Tryouts are not required for Mite In-house.  Mite In-House will practice on a set schedule every Saturday & Sunday (with exception of Holidays) in Wilmington with no travel required except for scheduled scrimmages against other towns’ in-house programs.  Any player 8 and under is eligible but it is recommended that players complete Learn to Play prior to starting In-House Mites. 

WYH, as a member of Massachusetts Hockey, subscribes to the American Development Model adopted by USA Hockey.  The goal of ADM is to maximum ice-time for players and improve development at all age levels.  For 8U players this means the adoption of cross ice games and skills as well as station based practices.  By making changes to our program we will be compliant with the ADM model and mirror the programs of other successful youth hockey programs throughout Massachusetts and nationally.

The WYH Board of Directors will be meeting next on Wednesday March 22, 2017 7:30pm at the Fourth of July Building.  During that time we will be able to address any questions you have regarding these changes.  Questions can also be directed to

Thank you,

WYHA BOD
