With the 2015-16 season in full swing, we would like to remind all of our parents and families to never leave your child unattended while at Ristuccia Arena and any ice hockey venues that you are attending while representing WYH. For our older players, we ask that you wait at the rink with your child until at least one of their coaches has arrived. In addition, please do not allow any children who are not on the ice to run around the rink. This is a safety risk to your children, the rink and to Wilmington Youth Hockey. We thank you for your help and cooperation and look forward to a great season!
Girls' Hockey Event at Boston University
USA Hockey and the International Ice Hockey Foundation is sponsoring a Girl's Hockey event at Boston University on October 11th from 10am-12pm for any female hockey player ages 12 and under. Please see the email below from one of the current members of the BU Women's Club Ice Hockey Team. Cost is $20 for the two-hour event. Contact and registration details are below.
Dear Wilmington Youth Hockey,
My name is Katherine Bienkowski and I am currently a member of the Boston University Women's Club Ice Hockey Team. On October 11th, our team will be hosting a clinic for female hockey players any age twelve or under sponsored by USA Hockey and the International Ice Hockey Federation's Girls' Hockey Weekend. This event is meant to strengthen, spread, and celebrate girls' hockey around the country. Many of our team's members have played youth hockey in the greater Boston area (I myself grew up playing for the Lexington-Bedford Youth Hockey Program) and would like to take this opportunity to help the next generation of females in these programs.
The clinic will be held on Sunday, October 11th from 10:00 am to noon at Boston University's historic Walter Brown Arena. The girls will be divided up according to age and focus on shooting, skating technique, passing, and other essentials. The two-hour clinic is only $20 per individual. RSVP to me, Katherine Bienkowski, by calling (781) 507-1834 or emailing
. Please feel free to email me or call with any inquiries that you may have.
