The program will run simultaneously with our Hockey Stars program.  Players will advance to Hockey Stars when they have demonstrated basic skating ability (timing will vary by player and will be at the full discretion of the First Step Hockey and Hockey Stars coaches).

Announcing Girls U10/U12 Limited Travel (Birth Year 2005-2008)

 

     

 

Simsbury Youth Hockey is pleased to announce our plans for a Girls U10/U12 Travel Team in 2017-18

We are pleased to announce our ability to field a U12/U10 combined age group travel team in the coming season.  Spring tryout results have invited several players to this team, with an excellent coaching staff already on board to lead us through a fun season.   With the goal of growing our program even further, we have opened two registrations to identify additional players.  A Girls U12 and Girls U10 registration will remain open through September 1st.  All registrants will be placed on this combined age group team.   

This team is open to players with birth years 2005/2006 (U12) and 2007/2008 (U10) and will play in the Connecticut Girls Hockey League (CGHL) to further develop the Girls Youth Hockey Program for Simsbury Youth Hockey.  This skill appropriate combined team will focus on team and skills development while having fun in a competitive, recreational hockey setting.      

In addition to playing CGHL girls teams across the state,  the team will also fill their game schedule with local co-ed house teams (including SYHA Squirt/PeeWee House) and, if appropriate, Squirt travel teams within the Connecticut Hockey Conference (CHC).  The team will practice twice a week and will participate in a minimum of 15 games.  They will also play in a minimum of one tournament in the coming season.  

Interested players should register in the appropriate age group (Girls U12 or Girls U10).  Our coaching staff and final team roster will be announced in the fall.

Free Summer Skills Sessions Schedule
We are pleased to announce that once again we will implement a Summer Skills Series to give all of our registered players  (Mite through Bantam) an opportunity to continue their skill development during the summer months.  Beginning July 11th, SYHA will offer a weekly Goalie Clinic as well as a Skating and Skills Session for our 2017-18 registered SYHA players.  All sessions will take at the ISCC Olympic Rink.
 
The Goalie Clinic will utilize 1/3 to 1/2 of the ice depending on numbers.  The skating players will utilize the other available portion of the ice under a skating and skills theme working on power skating, stick skills stations and small area games.  Director of Coaching, is working on gathering the on-ice instructors for the various age groups.  The schedule is below and will remain posted on the SYHA website.
 
These sessions are for registered 2017-18 players only.  All registered house and travel players welcome (Mite through Bantam age groups).  There is no charge for these ice sessions.
 
This year, we will require sign up for each session to assist our coaches with the development of practice plans. Please be sure to sign up for each session you plan to attend.

James A. Stover Scholarship Applications

SYHA Families:

In October 2003, James A. Stover, an SYHA skater, passed away tragically in a sudden accident while playing on a beach at Block Island.  He was seven years old.  Among James's many passions was hockey, and his zest for life and happy attitude were always with him on the ice.

To honor his spirit, the Simsbury Youth Hockey Association created a scholarship fund to enable any player to participate in the SYHA program, regardless of financial ability.  Many parents and players have generously donated to this fund and SYHA raises funds throughout the year to enable as many players a possible to benefit from this generosity.

In order to qualify, a family needs only to print and complete the application form attached below and include a copy of their previous year's IRS Form 1040.  

James A. Stover Scholarship Application

The application is reviewed - in strictest confidentiality - by a three member sub-panel of the SYHA Board of Directors consisting of the President, Vice President of Operations and Treasurer.  Scholarships are awarded strictly based on financial need.  Applications for the 2017-18 season should be submitted no later than Monday September 11th.

If you would like to make a donation to support the Stover Scholarship, please click here:
