Men's Ice Hockey

In Memory of Jason Pagni and to Benefit the Pagni Family

Friday, November 14th at 7:05PM

​The Taft School, Watertown, Connecticut

 

On Friday November 14, 2014, CJ Marottolo's Sacred Heart University Men's Hockey team will play the University of Connecticut in a benefit for the family of Jason Pagni. The game will be played at The Taft School in Watertown, Connecticut. Face-off is scheduled for 7:05PM. All proceeds from the game will be donated to the family of Jason Pagni.

Jason was well known in Connecticut hockey circles.  After graduating from The Avon Old Farms School in 1989, he devoted his life to hockey in Connecticut.  Jason was dedicated to advocating, developing and touching the lives of numerous parents and players at all levels of the sport from youth hockey, high school, prep school, college and the National Hockey League.  Jason's passion was hockey, and his favorite expression was, "Everybody Rides."

Jason Pagni passed away suddenly on January 31, 2014 at the age of 43, leaving a loving wife and two young children. This game is intended to acknowledge Jason's legacy, and to gather the hockey community in support of his family. Additionally , it is expected that there will be a separate auction at the game, featuring numerous items from current professional hockey players who were touched by Jason with all proceeds going to the Pagni Family.

Tickets are general admission and are available for $10.00 per person.  The arena capacity is limited to 950 people and a large crowd is expected. Therefore it is recommended that tickets be purchased in advance. To purchase tickets, please contact:

Yale Youth Hockey - Culture and Core Beliefs


All:

Developing an organization's Culture and Core Beliefs is a perpetual process. Developing a youth sports organization's Culture and Core Beliefs requires a concerted effort of Administrators, Coaches, Parents and Players.

Last night our Yale Pee Wee A team played the New York Junior Rangers 2003 team at Hamden Rink. In the second period with Yale leading 4-2 the referee awarded a goal to Yale. The referee was in a difficult position to see the puck. Clearly the puck had never crossed the goal line, however a goal was awarded to Yale. Our Yale Pee Wee A coaches recognizing the goal should not have been awarded to us, called the referees to our bench, and requested the goal be rescinded. The referees conferred, complied and Yale went on to win 6-2.

In my view, a wonderful teaching moment for all, especially our children.

Postponed

 

Dear Yale Youth Hockey Community:

 

Our Golf Tournament Committee has decided to postpone the first Annual YYHA Golf Classic at the New Haven Country Club.  Over the next few months, we will be gathering support and interest from the community so that we can be sure the event is a success.  

 

The Fall is a fantastic time to play golf, especially at New Haven Country Club, as course conditions and views are sure to be fantastic.  Most importantly, our fund raising efforts are an essential part for achieving our goals for Yale Youth Hockey, which the kids make great.  We hope that everyone will participate in the event in some way, whether as a player, sponsor or volunteer.

 

Thank you for your interest in this event.  Please look for more details and notifications over the summer.

 

Sincerely,

Yale Women Vs Brown Woman

The "White Out for Mandi" event is in honor of the life and legacy of Mandi Schwartz, a former Yale Women's hockey player who passed away from Acute Myeloid Leukemia in 2011.  The event also serves as a fundraiser for The Mandi Schwartz Foundation, which supports youth hockey players with life threatening illnesses.
    
Yale Youth Hockey Association, players, parents and friends, please support this wonderful event in honor of Mandi Schwartz by attending the game on January 24th.

The "White Out for Mandi" reminds us of  the wonderful accomplishments of Mandi Schwartz, as well as helps to raise money for The Mandi Schwartz Foundation, through donations, raffles, silent auctions, t-shirt sales, and most importantly, through attending the game and pledges.  

Mandi's brother Jaden, a member of the St. Louis Blues, will also be at the game with several of his teammates. So come to Ingalls Rink wearing white! Admission is free, #17 t-shirts will be sold at the game, and there will be a silent auction consisting of autographed Professional and Olympic sports memorabilia along with other entertainment! 

Our Yale Youth Hockey Girls teams will once again sell cupcakes with the proceeds donated to Mandi's Foundation. Please contact Polly Sather if you are interested in donating cupcakes for sale at the event.

The Sound Tigers game this Sunday, January 12th begins at 3:00PM. Yale Youth Hockey players should arrive between 2:00PM and 2:30PM. For the Clinic and Mite players skating during the First Intermission earlier is better.
 
All players must enter through the Media Door (with their tickets) to the left of the Main Front Doors and around the left side of building, between the parking garage and the Arena, near Section 112.  (No sticks and bags are allowed in the Concourse, they will have to be brought in the Media Door entrance.) Coaches, Players and Parents, etc. must provide at ticket at this time.
 
Please drop off in the front circle and then park your cars. The lot on the left under I95 is the closest and easiest to get out of when the games ends.
 
We will have a locker room very close to our Sections. Players will dress in full gear and White Yale Jersey, House Jersey or Clinic Jersey (except skates) and then proceed to their seats.
 
Important:
 

With 15 minutes left in the 1st Period, Clinic, House and Mite Players/Parents will proceed from their seats to the locker room and tie their skates. Coaches and Players will line up outside the locker room and then high five the Sound Tigers players as they come off the ice...then onto the ice. Following their skate players can undress and return to their seats. Gear can be left in the locker room.

Our Yale U-14 Girls won the U14B Division of the Woodstock, Vermont Veteran's Day Tournament recently, topping an 8 team field comprised of teams from Vermont,  New Hampshire, Massachusetts, and Connecticut.  Our Yale Girls won a dramatic semifinal in triple overtime against the Hanover Indians.  However,  the real drama was still to come in the finals,  where they faced a seemingly insurmountable challenge in a rematch against a talented team from Massachusetts that had beaten  them 5-0 in the round robin stage.  With a combination of grit, guts, and teamwork, our Girls beat all odds and came away with a 2-1 victory, scoring the game winner with 50 seconds left in regulation.  Hannah Stone was nearly perfect, stopping 36 of 37 shots she faced.

Thoughts for Parents and Coaches
All:

Effort goals help youth players focus on the things under their own control. Watch a youth soccer coach talk about the differences between effort goals, such as hustling and passing, rather than outcome goals, such as winning on the scoreboard:

Yale Junior Bulldogs Development Model Working
The Yale Junior Bulldogs are happy to announce that the early adoption of the American Development Model is paying off.  We were recently made aware that our Squirt A team (50% 2003 and 50% 2002 Roster) was ranked above many nationally ranked Tier 1 AAA organizations (See clip from myhockeyrankings.com below).  To us this only means that it is highly possible to develop from within and also achieve higher results without the constant exhausting travel.  Minor or youth hockey is expensive enough without adding nationwide trips, long haul weekends to DC or a Sunday trip to Maine for hockey games.  We feel it is imperative to keep kids 11 and under out of the car as much as possible.  Keeping kids on the ice and as close to home as possible are key elements to early development.  LTAD (Long Term Athletic Development) is what it says, LONG TERM.  You must figure that your player will not peak as an athlete until 20 for boys and perhaps earlier for girls.  With that, we shall continue to grow our skills and drills, pond hockey and other additional ice sessions since we are confident that more ice time and great coaches are key to optimal early development.  So come grow with the Yale Junior Bulldogs where your player will have more ice opportunities for fun, friendship, learning and learn how to compete with sportsmanship.
