Fitting sessions will all take place at Northford Ice Pavilion. The fittings will be done by Hamden Sports Center in the Yale room, located in the back of the Blue Rink. These sessions are the only opportunities you will have to order your uniforms for the upcoming season. You should not go to Hamden Sports directly.

 

Skaters should bring shoulder pads, and goalies should bring chest protectors to ensure proper fit of jerseys.

 

The YYHA uniform policy is as follows; All players must purchase and wear the approved Home (white) and Away (navy) jerseys, along with matching socks and shell. Players must be equipped with a navy blue helmet which shall feature the Yale 'Y', and also navy blue gloves. Members are also encouraged to purchase warm-up suits. 

 

Here is the price break down of items offered at fitting;

  • Jerseys $90 each
  • Socks $24 per pair
  • Shells $45 each
  • Tracksuits are $70 for the jacket and $45 for the pants

 

Jersey numbers - For players new to YYHA, you will be contacted soon regarding your player's jersey number. You do not need your player's jersey # in order to place your uniform order with Hamden Sports.

 

If you have any questions regarding uniforms or uniform orders, contact Dan Tinson at dtnyyanks@att.net. Do not contact Hamden Sports directly.

Thank you.

14U Tryout Results

All:

 

Below are the 14U tryout results for the 2018-19 season.  A reminder, all tryout decisions are final.  There is no appellate process. 

 

If your player is marked as an alternate on a AA team, they are among the first call-ups in the event of a non-commitment.  Additionally, they are permitted to take part in all YYHA Player Development Sessions during the season.

 

Players marked as alternates on A or A1 teams are the first to be called up in the event the team above them has player movement as a result of non-commits.

 

You should hear from your team’s coach in the next 24 hours.  To commit, access the registration on the YYHA site related to your team (should be online in the morning).  Your registration is not confirmed until you have paid the registration fee.

14U Call Back Groups - Saturday

All:

 

For today's session, please go in the Call Back Group (1, 2, or 3) that you were initially assigned to, regardless of whether or not you stayed in a second session on Friday. 

 

For goaltenders, we will flip the rotation.  Goalies born in 2005 will go in Group 1; Goalies Born in 2004 will skate in Group 2 & Group 3.

 

Thank you!

14U Call Back Groups

All:

 

See below for 14U Call Back Groups.  A few things (PLEASE READ!)...

 

  1. All sessions are on FRIDAY are on RED; ON SATURDAY, Groups 1 & 2 are on WHITE & Group 3 is on BLUE.
  2. Goalies will be sorted today (Friday) by birth-year.  The goalie rotation will change tomorrow (Saturday); On Friday, All Goalies born in 2004 will skate in Group 1 AND Group 2; Both Goalies born in 2005 will skate in ONLY Group 3 (Goalie Parents: Please, for the love of God, do not e-mail somebody this morning saying that your child’s jersey number is not listed!).
  3. Players may be asked to stay for multiple sessions, so please be prepared for that possibility.
  4. The groups are loosely sorted by aptitude – there is definitely overlap.  To that point, there are players in Group 1 who are still being evaluated for A/A1 teams & players in Group 2 who are still being evaluated for AA/AAA teams.  There are also – most likely – players who are entirely misplaced.  Be patient with the process.  It will work out.
  5. In the groups, I attempted to sort the numbers in numerical order by copying & pasting.  To ensure that no player got deleted in that copy & paste process (it’s 2:25AM here in Colorado Springs), I also included the numbers below exactly as they were sent to me.  If you don’t see your child’s number (NON-GOALIES!) in the numerical sort, double-check the unsorted grouping below, which has no order.
  6. If your child is not identified in either of those groups (sorted & unsorted), that is an oversight.  Because of the turnaround time, just show up for Group 1 & let the folks at the sign-in table know that your child was not placed in a Group.  They will let the coaches know & if the player needs to skate in multiple sessions, they will do so.

 

Group 1 (Friday, 5:30PM; Saturday, 9:10AM)

12U Tryout Results

All:

This was an incredibly difficult process to sort through, but we did the very best we can.  In a lot of ways we have overlap, so we worked to put players within birth-groups as much as we could for consistency & also it helped on bubble selections.  Don't be so worried about the letters as we will find appropriate competition for each team.

Additionally, I am going to extend our Player Development Sessions with Steve Novodor & Jon Bellonio to include a bi-weekly session for 06A & 07A to augment their practices & Skating, Skills, & Drills Sessions.  We are not going to raise tuition, as we are adding this after the fact.  If the Hockey Director stipend needs to shrink a bit to cover the additional expense, I am committed to doing that for the kids.

Lastly, don't freak out if you feel your child was a bubble player and got snubbed, or if your child is placed on the small B1 team.  We always have 5-10 non-commits & there will be additional movement in the coming days.  Additionally, we have substantial outside interest from players who tried out elsewhere and need a place to play.

Thanks for patience.  I got this done as fast as I could.  Every player was meant to be placed, so if your child is not on the list, just e-mail me and I will get him/her on the list this evening in the correct spot.  I have a committment at 5:00PM central time, so it will not be at any point in the next couple hours, but will be later tonight.

Inaugural Yale Youth Hockey Golf Tournament

Inaugural Yale Youth Hockey Golf Tournament

2017

 

Dear Yale Youth Hockey Association Friends and Families:

We are very excited to announce the Inaugural Yale Youth Hockey Golf Tournament to be held on Tuesday, September 5th at beautiful New Haven Country Club. Please see the attached flyer for additional details.

Over the past several years, we have seen Yale Youth Hockey grow and the vision of this tournament is celebrate these successes while also serving as a general fundraiser for the Association. The fundraising dollars will directly contribute to the development of our players and support Yale Youth Hockey as one of Connecticut's premier youth hockey organizations.

Our objective is to make the Yale Youth Hockey Golf Tournament an annual event.  We are hoping our current membership, as well as those outside the Association will support this Tournament in one of many ways. For those golf enthusiasts (or those of us who get out only a few times a year), come play 18 holes at one of Connecticut’s oldest and most prestigious private country clubs. This beautiful two-tiered course offers a great day for golfers of all kinds. 

Are you interested in being a sponsor?  There are many different sponsorship levels to choose from. Would you like to volunteer the day of the event?  Whatever your interest, there is an opportunity.

We are thrilled to establish a new tradition for Yale Youth Hockey and share it with our dedicated hockey community. The time of year coincides with the kick-off of the new hockey season. What better way to do so!  We are looking forward to a great day of golf and on and off course specials to make the day even more memorable.

For more information, see the attached brochure. Additionally, you can contact me at 203-530-8245 or send an email to

We look forward to this date and to see you at the event.

Best regards.

Johnny Beecher invited to NTDP Evaluation Camp!

 

JOHNNY BEECHER INVITED TO PRESTIGIOUS NATIONAL TEAM DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM EVALUATION CAMP

 

Congratulations to Johnny Beecher, a forward on the Yale Jr. Bulldogs 16U Midget team, who was among the 2001-born players selected to the 2017 United States National Team Development Program Evaluation Camp.  This season, 46 players were selected from all across the United States for the nation’s most prestigious tryout camp.

Beecher played for Coaches Bellonio, Novodor and the YYHA midget staff this past Fall before his prep school season at the Salisbury School began. 

Prior to playing for Yale Jr. Bulldogs and the Salisbury School, Beecher, a native of Elmira, New York, starred in the Syracuse Nationals program in upstate New York.

Beecher joins current NTDP U-17 forward, Jack DeBoer, as the second Yale Jr. Bulldog to be invited to the NTDP Evaluation Camp in the two years since Steve Novodor and Jon Bellonio began the Yale Midget Program.  The split-season program is designed as a vehicle to provide high level competition as well as to expose prep and high school players to scouts and coaches in the USHL, NCAA, NTDP, and the NHL.

We wish Johnny, along with fellow players from Connecticut Programs, Spencer Knight and Trevor Zegras (Mid-Fairfield/Avon Old Farms), the best of luck at camp.

Yale Youth Hockey 2017-2018 Season Introduction

Yale Youth Hockey Association

2017-2018 Season Introduction

 

Dear Yale Youth Hockey Member Families and Prospective Member Families:

Over the past five years, Yale Youth Hockey Association has striven to become the premier youth hockey program in Connecticut.  In that time, we have accomplished many wonderful things on and off the ice, highlighted perhaps by our selection as a USA Hockey Model Association. This is a distinction that we are very proud of and one we look to honor with continued progressive thinking and innovation in player development.  We are proud of what we have accomplished thus far, but also feel that we have not even scratched the surface of our potential.

Five years ago, our mission was simple.  We were looking to provide our players and families with a strong, community-focused culture while catering to three types of players: the recreational player, the intermediate player, and the advanced player.  While we feel that we have grown significantly in all three of these phases, we are most excited for what’s to come in 2017-2018.  While this is not a complete list, we want to introduce you to some of our most exciting initiatives.

A Paradigm-Shift in Coaching Philosophy

We are very pleased with the development of our players and coaches over the past five years.  That said, we are always looking to improve.  In 2017-2018, we will shift to an even more individual-focused player development structure, where each player will be consistently evaluated and given performance-based, tangible goals throughout the season.  We want every player to continue to polish their strengths, and more importantly, understand and correct their deficiencies. We want every player to become best hockey player and person they can be.

We feel that if we highlight a player’s strengths and deficiencies (on and off the ice) several times throughout each season during the six-year window from 10-U (Squirt) through 14-U (Bantam), we can make far more significant progress in each player’s development than in the traditional coaching structure.

This will be implemented for every team throughout the program regardless of whether a player is on the advanced track, the intermediate track, or the recreational track.

While we will continue our focus on skill development, we will also place significant emphasis and detail on cultivating “Hockey Sense” and “Competitiveness/Mental Toughness” in every player.  These two attributes are the most important areas of focus in developing Elite Hockey Players.

AA/AAA Major/Minor (Birth Year Specific) Teams 9-U to 14-U

There is a misnomer in our hockey culture, that competition drives development at the younger levels.  Many “hockey salesmen” will lead you to believe that you are holding your child back if they do not play on the highest level team at the earliest possible age.  We believe for most youth players, excessively challenging competition at the younger levels is detrimental to a player’s long-term development. Our objective is to provide an appropriate competitive environment for all players. We will continue to create and provide a competitive and challenging environment while limiting unnecessary travel time, costs and stress on our families.  We feel that our AA/AAA Major/Minor structure will allow us to accomplish our goals, while containing the travel and costs associated with many of the self-proclaimed Tier 1 programs.

While we will continue to offer teams in the traditional structure (A, A1, B, etc.,), we will also offer AA/AA Major/Minor teams 10-U (Squirt) through 14-U (Bantam): 9-U Minor 2008 (Squirt), 10-U Major 2007 (Squirt), 11-U Minor 2006 (Pee Wee), 12-U Major 2005 (Pee Wee), 13-U Minor 2004 (Bantam) and 14-U Major 2003 (Bantam).

This structure allows us:

  1. To establish a more refined age-specific training/development structure for our players from 9 years old through 14 years old.
  2. To create an environment which allows more players to participate on the “advanced player” track within Yale Youth Hockey Association.
  3. To provide our players with the highest level of training and competition while continuing our mission to reduce unnecessary travel, travel expenses and costs associated with the Tier 1 programs prevalent in the Northeast.

Yale Youth Hockey Association Player Development Initiative and Team

While Yale Youth Hockey Association will continue to offer Skating/Skills and Drills with Shaun Hannah exclusively for players in the traditional A, A1, B structure, we will also introduce the Yale Youth Hockey Player Development team to players in our 9-U – 14-U AA/AAA Major/Minor structure.  The Player Development team will be Directed and Instructed weekly by Steve Novodor and Jon Bellonio, with assistance from the Head and Assistant coaches of all 3 AA/AAA levels.

The Player Development team will develop a 3-Phase Progression Model which will provide appropriate enhanced and specialized skill development for our AA/AAA players. This will allow us to provide individual player specific development.

Every Yale Youth Hockey player will have the opportunity to work with either Shaun Hannah, Steve Novodor, or Jon Bellonio (NCAA Division I, NCAA Division III, Junior Hockey and/or Prep School Coaches) on a weekly basis.

Non-Checking Bantam/Pee Wee League

Yale Youth Hockey Association also hopes to create (Pending Number of Participants) a Non-Checking league where intermediate and recreational players can continue their love of the game of hockey.

Try-Out is not required, however players who do Try-Out for Pee Wee and Bantam who are best served in this league will be directed to it by evaluators. Players who are interested should Register when Try-Out Registration opens.

Thank you for your continued support of Yale Youth Hockey Association.  We look forward to a successful conclusion to the 2016-2017 Season and the exciting times ahead in 2017-2018 and beyond.

All the best,

Ryan Hardy

Attendance at these sessions is highly encouraged. This is where the difference in skill development progression will be fostered.

Skaters
Skills Sessions "Power Skating" for Skaters, under the direction of Shaun Hanna are an important component of the Yale Youth Hockey culture and program, therefore there is no additional cost. 
 
Goalies
Skills Sessions "Skills and Drills" for Goalies, under the direction of Jared Waimon-Pro Crease are an important component of the Yale Youth Hockey culture and program, therefore there is no additional cost. Jared will be assisted by various other goalie coaches and current college goalies. These sessions are about building habits, learning how to analyze a play and finally technique. This last component is where these coaches can drive the optimal process, the skills that really matter, tracking, depth, skating, competing.
