Parents Meeting - September 11
posted 08/20/2014
 

*****Attention all BYH Parents – Mandatory Parents Meeting*****

 

As we discussed in the registration package, BYH is moving to become more compliant with USA Hockey’s ADM Model. This move will result in some changes to our hockey program for the upcoming 2014-2015 season that will impact all age groups and all levels of play - from Learn to Play through Midgets.  We believe these changes are in the best interest of all our BYH players.

In order to make sure our parents understand the changes we are making and why they are in the best interest of their children, we will be holding a Parent Education session on Thursday, September 11, 2014, 7:00PM, at Normanside Country Club.  The session will be presented by our ADM Coordinator, Marty Hull, and will cover what ADM is about, why USA Hockey has adopted ADM, and what specific changes you can expect for the upcoming season.  This session is designed to give you a better understanding of why these changes will be beneficial to all players at BYH, despite their current ability level or age.

We will see you on September 11 at Normanside Country Club for this important and informative event.   Normanside Country Club is located at 150 Salisbury Road, Delmar, NY.

ADM Demonstration at RPI
posted 08/20/2014
 

Coaches, Assistant Coaches, Potential Coaches and others that are interested to see an ADM Demonstration

 

On Wednesday, September 3, at 6:30 PM at RPI, Matt Herr (USA Hockey Regional ADM Manager) will conduct a station based practice demonstration for all our BYHA coaches.  We will have approximately 40 squirts and mites on the ice for the practice.  After the station based practice demonstration, Matt will meet with our coaches, go over the practice, and answer any questions.  It will be very important that our coaches attend this session on September 3.  Coaches should make all possible effort to attend this meeting.

As we discussed in the registration package, BYHA is moving to become more compliant with ADM, which will result in some changes, across all age groups, to our hockey program for this upcoming 2014-2015 season.  One of the more significant changes will be the manner in which we run our practices.  All practices will now be shared ice practices, and will need to be station based practices. 

 

Please RSVP  or Marty Hull at

 

We will see you on September 3 at RPI for this important and informative event.

PeeWee A and B Team Conditioning Cinics:  Prior to tryouts, BYH will be providing two nights of conditioning clinics for those registered with BYH and are interested in trying out for either the PW A or B teams.  There is no cost to participate in these clinics.  To prepare the players for the tryouts, players should attend the conditioning clinic that is listed below based on their interest for either the PW A or B team.

Clinic PW(I) is being offered for those interested in trying out for the PW A team.

Bantam and Squirt Evaluations
posted 08/19/2014
 

This season BYH will be using a process for both the Squirt and Bantam team formations that is different than the traditional tryouts we have utilized in the past.  We are doing this in our continued effort to become more ADM compliant.   PeeWees will remain the same as in past years, using the traditional tryouts.

 

For the Squirts and Bantams, in place of separate conditioning clinics followed by tryouts, we will be having 4 nights of on-ice evaluation sessions for each Division which will consist of station based practices and small area games.  All players at the Squirt and Bantam level are invited to these sessions.

 

Players will be evaluated over the course of these sessions to determine which team they should be placed on in order to give them the best chance to develop over the upcoming season.  As in the past, we will use evaluators to make this determination.  

 

If you are unable to attend a session, that will be fine, but please try to attend as many as possible.  If you are interested in playing on the Squirt C team this year, you are still encouraged to attend these sessions.  You can still sign up for the C team and get some extra ice time as well.     Again, all players interested in playing Squirts and Bantams are encouraged to attend all 4 on-ice evaluation sessions, or as many as you can make.   

 

A standard tryout fee of $50, for up to all 4 sessions, will be collected at the time of your first session.   The $50 payment covers all 4 sessions (its not $50 per session).  Also, we will not prorate for those that cannot make all 4 sessions.

 

Before being allowed on the ice:

- You will need to have a current 2014/2015 USA Hockey Registration number.  If you have registered your player using the BYH on-line registration system, you already have completed this task.

- If the last team you played for was not BYH, a financial release from your last organization will need to be presented.
