2019-20 Hockey Season


Believe it or not, registration for the 2019-20 hockey season has opened.  SYHA is proud to offer the best hockey program and coaching staff in the area.  For the upcoming season, we are excited to continue using a professional skating coach (Randall), professional goalie coach (Mac), and certified strength & conditioning trainers.  We are also excited to continue the James F. Heath, Jr. Scholarship (see information below).

Multi-Player Registration Discount:  A discount shall be applied to each additional child when multiple registrations are completed within the same order (under the same registration) by using the 'REGISTER ANOTHER PLAYER' option on the Review Page - DO NOT START A NEW REGISTRATION  - Failure to do so will result in a forfeiture of your family's multi-registration discount.

10u to 18u Jerseys Returning players may use last year's SYHA game jerseys, which are the same this year.  If you wish to purchase a replacement, HOME and AWAY game jerseys are $110 per pair (only sold in pairs).  A jersey sizing chart is available at  Contact the Equipment Manager if you need to try on jerseys.

10u to 18u Jersey Numbers:  Returning 10u to 18u players will have the same jersey number as the previous year.  If returning players want to request a new jersey number (and new jerseys), please review the list of available numbers at NEW PLAYERS must choose their preferred number based on their birth year.  Even birth years must choose even numbers.  Odd birth years must choose odd numbers. Players will be asked during registration for their top 3 preferred numbers.  

Socks:  SYHA game socks will be available for purchase at the beginning of the season from the Equipment Manager.

8u Registration - Additional Information:  Open only to the 2011 & 2012 birth years.  SYHA anticipates this year's 8u registration will reach the 60-PLAYER CAP - register early to avoid being closed out of the 8u program.  All players with a birth year of 2013 and later must register for Mini-Mites or Introduction to Hockey (registrations to be open at a later date).

8u Jerseys:  During registration, players will have the option to buy a reversible SYHA jersey for $60.  Returning players may use last year's SYHA jerseys, unless you wish to purchase a replacement.  8u jersey numbers are automatically assigned and not selected by players.
