Welcome to the 2015-16 Wilmington Youth Hockey Season! We hope that everyone had a great summer and although it is still 80-90 degrees outside, we know how anxious you all are to get back into the rink (many of you never left!).
The first round of games from Valley Hockey League have been released. These are the 'parity' round games that will take us into early October. The games will be made available in your team's schedule shortly and most of you will be notified via email/text messaging.
For those of you that are not aware, LeagueAthletics has an Apple and Android app for your mobile devices. Simply download the app (search for LeagueAthletics) and once installed, login with your WYHA username and password to see your team's roster and schedule (among other features). Also, many of you receive the 'ical' calendars on your iOS devices and calendar applications - remember, if you are on a different team this year, you will need to reconnect to your new team. If you have any questions or problems related to accessing the WYHA team calendars, please reach out to email@example.com.
Last note, the practice schedule is being finalized as we speak. It should be made available by early next week (if not sooner). We will notify you when they have been posted.
Good news! Buzzer Registration is now open!! Buzzers is a fun introduction to the game of hockey with an emphasis on skills: stops & starts, edge work, and puck handling. There are typically two practices a week and as the season progresses, Saturday is dedicated to skill building and Sunday is dedicated to cross ice 3v3 scrimmaging. Other potential opportunities during the season, depending on timing and availability, include local tournaments and half ice scrimmaging with neighboring Buzzers programs.
The program will cost $775 and runs the entire regular season from September to March. Participants should have skating experience, ideally have completed a Learn to Skate and Learn to Play Program and are required to bring their own equipment. It is open to all players with birth years 2002-2010.
Please visit our website at www.wilmingtonyouthhockey.org under Program Info/Buzzers page for more information about the program or to register click the big red REGISTER NOW!! button on the home page.
Pass this information onto anyone that might be interested and if you have any questions, please contact us at
