Knights Corner

Knights Corner - 2/13/18

 
Here is the latest at South Windsor Youth Hockey.
 
1.  This Past Weekend
Bantam A faced Avon on Saturday and won 7-5.  Nice win!
 
Pee Wee A faced Northeast on Saturday and won, 9-6.  Then they played New Canaan on Sunday and won 5-4.  Great job!
 
Pee Wee B defeated the Whalers on Sunday, 4-2.  Nice!
 
Pee Wee C played Southern on Sunday and won 4-3.  Great job!
 
Squirt A played Hamden on Sunday and won 5-2.  The team was led by a Jacob Wojcik Hat Trick and outstanding goaltending by Joseph Marchese.  Well done!
 
Squirt B faced Northwestern on Saturday and won 3-1.  Way to go!
 
Squirt C had the coolest weekend.  They traveled to Lake Morey in Vermont and played in a pond hockey tournament.  Photos on the website.
 
2.  Board Meeting
The next Board Meeting is an important one.  It is Tuesday, March 6th, at 7:30 pm at Nomad's.
  • We are accepting nominations, still, for next year's Board of Directors right up to the meeting.
  • We will vote on both next year's Executive Board (Vice President and Treasurer) and Board of Directors.
  • After, the Board will meet in a closed session to choose next year's Head Coaches.
  • Head Coach applications for next season are now being accepted.  The link is on our website.
3.  Tryouts and Registration for Next Year
Tryouts information is now on our website and registration is now live and active.  There is a discounted registration fee for early registrations.  Tryouts will take place during the week of Monday, March 19th.  There is a link to the SWYHA Tryouts Policy.
 
4.  Evaluations
  • Coach Evaluations will be available soon on our website.  Please take the time to evaluate Head and Assistant Coaches.  Constructive information is helpful and used during the coach selection process.
  • Head Coaches will be performing player evaluations over the next few weeks.  These are used by the Tryouts Selection Committee when team placements are made.
5.  Financial Status
The current financial position of SWYHA is strong.  Fundraiser participation is very important as a means to help keep dues under control.  We have had good success this year from our Golf Tournament in September and our fundraisers throughout the year.  The Fundraising Committee has worked hard on this and is owed a big thank you.
 
6.  Thank You
As the end of the hockey season approaches, all of the men and women who have volunteered their time so that the kids have a good year of hockey are all owed a huge thank you for all of their efforts behind the scenes.  Coaches are the most visible volunteers, but the volunteers include countless hours of parents putting time and energy into the hockey season.  For those who have helped, it is most appreciated.
 
7.  CHC State Tournaments
  • CHC sets the tournament schedules.  As soon as we know where and when teams are playing, we will let everyone know.
  • SWYHA is hosting two tournaments this year.  We usually host one or two tournaments.  We will host one tournament beginning Wednesday, Feb. 28th.  And a second tournament beginning Wednesday, March 7th.
8.  Ice Time
Over the next few weeks, our SWYHA Master Scheduler will make an effort to keep kids skating.  Expect that the schedule will have changes.  We will try to post changes promptly.
 
9.  Quote of the Week
"You get self-satisfaction from pushing yourself to the limit, knowing that all the effort is going to pay off." - Mary Lou Retton
 
Hope everyone has another great week of hockey.
