Yale Youth Hockey - USA Hockey SafeSport "Important"
by posted 07/05/2014
 

USA Hockey SafeSport Certification

 

USA Hockey is committed to creating a safe and positive environment for all participants’ physical, emotional, and social development, and has adopted the United States Olympic Committee’s SafeSport Training Program, specifically customized for USA Hockey. This comprehensive program includes written materials, policies and a series of online training videos aimed at educating its members and preventing abuse. The training is available to anyone (including parents), free of charge. 

Commencing with the 2014-2015 Season "This Season", all Coaches (Head Coaches and Assistant Coaches) are required to complete the USA Hockey SafeSport Certification every two years.

The New England District has passed a rule that stipulates that coaches are required to have completed the SafeSport Certification PRIOR to being placed on a Roster. Coaches that completed the training during the 2013-2014 season are not required to take the training in 2014-2015, but must complete a refresher training the following year. Everyone is encouraged to complete the Training program (Team Managers, Volunteers, parents). The link to the USA Hockey SafeSport Certification Program is on the USA Hockey Website...www.usahockey.com.

All Coaches...Please complete ASAP.

Yale Youth Hockey Golf Classic "Postponed"

Yale Youth Hockey Golf Classic

Postponed

 

Dear Yale Youth Hockey Community:

 

Our Golf Tournament Committee has decided to postpone the first Annual YYHA Golf Classic until Tuesday, September 30, 2014 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 Youth Hockey

Fourth Annual "White Out for Mandi" 
Friday, January 24, 2014
7:00PM at Ingalls Rink
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.

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

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
by posted 02/21/2013
 
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.
