Fundraising Help!

Have you thought about helping out but didn't know where to start? Well we have the job for you. Every year, GHPYH works hard to keep our progam affordable for all.  To do this we rely on a number of fundraising and team activities.  This take coordination from the board and our fundraising lead, Megan Arivella. 

Well Megan is looking for a few good people to help out. Ideally at least 1 person from each team. We have some fun events coming up and will be looking for assistance with things like: raffle baskets, team coordination, social gatherings, restaurant fundraiser nights, etc.

So if you've wanted to help, nows your chance. Send Megan an email by hitting reply to this message or clicking here: 

 

Thank you!

2019/20 Season Updates

GHPYH Community,

It’s that time of year again. We are less than a month away from the start of the 2019-2020 season!  The board is working to get everything ready for the start of the season; jerseys, ice time, equipment, etc.  Now is a good time to send out some useful pieces of info as the season gets closer

The two most important items that you can help us with:

USA Hockey number – If you have not already provided it to us, please do so ASAP. This is mandatory and is our insurance policy. Kids and Coaches cannot go on the ice without a 2019-2020 USA number on file with the league.  You can go to the “edit my account” section of our website and update it under the child’s name.  You can also email it to   . Anthony Bonfiglio is taking the lead with USA Hockey rostering duties. So be on the lookout for emails from him if you don’t get this in.  Let Anthony know if you have any questions.

Payments – Please continue making your payments. You should have made multiple installments at this point.  The next payment will be due 9/1/19.  You can pay both online and via a check through the mail.  If you have any questions regarding payments, Shawn Guertin can assist via email at   .

Now for some updates as we get ready for the season:

  1. Start Dates – As of this week, the City is telling us the rink will be ready to go by 9/3. So be prepared to have a practice/skill session on 9/3
  2. Game schedule - Games are slated to start 9/7 for the Valley League.  We do not have the game schedule yet. We don’t anticipate our parity schedule to come until the end of August, at best. Once we have that, we’ll post it right away. Mite teams, especially instructional teams will start games a few weeks later.
  3. Practice schedule – As is always the case, we create practice schedules based on game schedules. This allows us to maximize our practice time without conflicting with games.  Because of the lack of a game schedule, we’re holding off on publishing a full practice schedule. Though, be on the lookout for Fall Skills sessions and some weekday practices to be added shortly as those do not conflict with games.
  4. Practice Ice times – We have secured our Tuesday/Thursday/Saturday/Sunday practice days once again at the Haverhill High school. Much like last year, we will also be adding limited times on Monday, Wednesday and Friday at the rink.  As always, practice Sessions will be 50 minutes in length.  Weekday practices will start around 5pm and go until 10pm (5 hours each weeknight to be divided up).  Weekend practices will start as early as 8am and go to 12pm. Our goal is to continue to provide as many practice sessions as possible for each of our teams.  
  5. Skills Sessions: Like summer skills, Pride Hockey will provide our skills instruction on Tuesdays. We are very excited to now offer skills for 25 weeks, throughout most of the season.
  6. Goalie Skills:  We continue our partnership with “In The Zone Goaltending” and Mike Lane. Mike and his company ITZ, has also been a long time partner of ours and has proven to be very successful in developing the critical components of effective goaltending.  This weekly goaltending session will run for 25 weeks and is open to all full time goaltenders (squirt-midget ages).
  7. Available Space:  If you know anyone interested in playing, but they did not attend tryouts, we still have space available at most ages. Have them go to our website to sign up asap. 
  8. Coaching help: If you are interested in helping coach, please reach out to your teams head coach. They are always looking for on and off ice assistance. Our coaches meeting is scheduled for 8/28/19 at 7pm at Veterans Rink.
  9. Bocce Night Save the Date: This will be the can’t miss parent night of the year! 10/19 7p-11p at the Methuen Sons of Italy. Be on the lookout for more info soon including registration info.

I will share more information/schedules for you as soon as we have it available.  As always, please let any of the Board Members or I know if you have any questions or concerns at all.  Thanks, and enjoy the rest of your summer.
