All:

Learn to Skate-Play Hockey, Mite House, Mite Travel, Squirt, Pee Wee, Bantam and U-19 Girls. This season we will skate primarily at Ingalls Rink and secondarily at Northford. We will also have Hocksal practice at H3 on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. We have developed a substantive relationship with Northford over the past year and we have committed to lots of ice for this season. Northford is in the process of building a third rink "White" and that will be our primary rink there. The "White" rink was expected to open October 1st, however the completion date is now expected in late October. We have therefore secured ice at Wesleyan, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays in September and October.

USA Hockey has designated the Yale Youth Hockey Association a USA Hockey Model Association, one of 19 Model Associations nationally. As a USA Hockey Model Association we must begin our practices and games after Labor Day. We also will not be practicing, playing games or tournaments the Friday, Saturday or Sunday of Thanksgiving week or from December 26 to January 1.

Yale Youth Hockey will not play any CHC League Games prior to October 1st,

Outside Tournaments should be scheduled after January 1 and must be approved by our Tournament Committee: tournaments@yaleyouthhockey.com

Wallingford Columbus Fall Classic (October 7-12): Many of our teams will play this tournament. This is a new tradition for Yale Youth Hockey which we began last fall and we are please to have been so well received by Wallingford Hawks Youth Hockey. Mite A Jamboree, Mite B Jamboree, Squirt A, Squirt A1, Pee Wee AA, Pee Wee A, Bantam AA, Bantam A will all participate.

We are working tirelessly to get the Game Ice Allocations out this week with practices to follow. We just recently received the ice slot allocations from the rinks, and the process is complex. Thank you for your patience.

Immediate Attention Required

Immediate Attention Required

Uniforms

 

Attention New and Returning Players:

There seems to be some confusion as to our uniform fittings. We have a significant amount of members questioning whether or not they need to get their player(s) fitted for new uniforms.

Please read the following as it is the process as described in a previous email:

It is imperative and urgent that all player (s) who will require new uniforms for the upcoming 2015-2016 Season that he/she get to Hamden Sport Center immediately to be fitted. Hamden Sport Center is located at 2858 Whitney Avenue, Hamden, CT (top of the hill in the Red Barn)...ASAP!!

Our Jerseys are custom made exclusively for YYHA by Bauer and take approximately 90 Days to come in so it is very important get Fitted and Order ASAP.

Who needs to get fitted?

All players matriculating from the clinic and entering the Mite Program MUST get fitted for uniforms (see below).

New Players: All new players to YYHA must get fitted immediately.

Returning Members: If your child is not changing his/her number and/or his/her uniform from this past season still fits with room to grow through this upcoming season 2015-2016, then you do not need to be fitted for a new uniform. Last season was an anomaly as we made a league wide shift in our Uniform Code.

Number Change: Any player who is changing his/her number must get fitted as you are essentially replacing your current uniforms.

Midgets: All players participating at the Midget level are excluded from uniform fittings.

I hope this clears up any and all confusion.

Again, it is imperative to get fitted ASAP if your player(s) is/are required to do so as discussed above.

Please contact me at: if you are not clear as to the process.

Michael Ursini

Yale Youth Hockey Association welcomes Coach Novodor and Coach Bellonio.

Biographies

Steve Novodor begins his first season at Yale Youth Hockey in 2015-2016, serving as Head Coach of both the U-16 Tier 1 Split Season team and the 2002 Bantam AA team.  Prior to joining the Bulldogs, Coach Novodor spent numerous seasons in the Junior Bobcats/Wolf Pack organization, coaching at the Pee-Wee, Bantam, and Midget levels.  In 2013, Coach Novodor led his team to the USA Hockey U16 National Championship game, falling just short against the Chicago Mission.

“Steve Novodor is one of the premier youth hockey coaches in the country,” said Yale Youth Hockey Director, Ryan Hardy.  “His knowledge, integrity, and passion for developing players will be invaluable in elevating the Yale Youth Hockey experience for all of our membership.

In addition to his work at the youth hockey level, Coach Novodor also spent three seasons as an Assistant Coach at Loomis Chafee Prep School, helping build the Pelicans into the powerhouse that they currently are.   He also currently serves as a scout for the Muskegon Lumberjacks of the USHL, the only Tier 1 Junior Hockey League in the United States.

Jon Bellonio begins his first season at Yale Youth Hockey in 2015-2016, serving as Head Coach of both the U-18 Tier 1 Split Season team and the 2003 Pee-Wee AA team.  Coach Bellonio comes to the Bulldogs with extensive experience throughout prep, junior, and college hockey.  From 2011-2014, Bellonio spent three years as an assistant coach at Wesleyan College.  Prior to joining the Cardinals, Coach Bellonio spent time in the United States Hockey League as a coach for the Lincoln Stars.  He also coached in the EJHL with the Philadelphia Revolution and began his career as an Assistant Coach at South Kent Prep School.

“When Jon Bellonio approached me about joining Yale Youth Hockey, I knew it would be an instant home run,” remarked Yale Youth Hockey Director, Ryan Hardy.  “He has a exceptional of experience at so many levels and will do a remarkable job connecting with, developing, and motivating our players to help them reach their full potential on and off the ice.”

In addition to coaching at Yale Youth Hockey next year, Bellonio will also continue to serve as a scout for the Bloomington Thunder of the USHL, the only Tier 1 Junior Hockey League in the United States.

Yale Youth Hockey - Pee Wee A "Silver Stick" Finals

Yale Pee Wee A

2015 Silver Stick Finals

Port Huron, MI

 

Our Yale Pee Wee A team traveled to Port Huron, Michigan this week to compete in the Pee Wee AA Silver Stick Finals. Our Pee Wee team won 2 of 3 games in the pool play, beating Steel City Ice Renegades (Pittsburgh, PA) ranked among the top 20 MyHockey Rankings teams in the U.S. and hometown favorite Port Huron Flags (Port Huron, MI).Yale lost to Centre Wellington (Ontario, Canada) one of the top teams in Ontario.

None of the 20 teams in our tournament won all three games and we did not make it to the Quarter Finals based on Goal Quotient. Our team, a combination of 11 and 12 year olds competed against strictly 12 year old teams and performed with distinction. Yale Pee Wee A was among the top tier teams in a very competitive tournament.

This was a great accomplishment for Yale Youth Hockey and we hope to send many more teams to the Silver Stick Final in future years.

Yale Youth Hockey - Blake Rink Rules

Coaches, Players, Parents et al:

I was contacted by Blake Rink Management. Please follow the Blake Rink Rules articulated below:

1. Please do not walk through the Zamboni bay/driveway area to get to the players boxes.  There are signs posted to warn people not to go through, as it is an unsafe area for anyone except our employees.

2. Please do not enter our main office and take things out of it.  It is very concerning that people are going in there when the employees are not in the office.  It would be great if people could be patient and wait for someone to help them.  We do what we can to accommodate all requests. 

3. Absolutely no skaters or coaches should open the rink door or be on the ice when the Zamboni is in operation.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to All:

Yesterday, Santa Claus touched down at the Lincoln Bassett Community School in New Haven. Our Yale Youth Hockey Community made it all happen for hundreds of young children yesterday. This touched the lives of Lincoln Basset Students and Teachers, our Yale Youth Hockey Community children and players, parents, coaches and friends. Ryan Hardy, our Director - Hockey Operations along with our so many Yale Youth Hockey members, made possible, what two weeks ago had not even been contemplated.

 

As a son, brother, husband, father and friend, I am overwhelmed by the kindness, generosity and compassion of or association. As I anxiously await the arrival of Santa Claus late tonight, this early Christmas present will be the most cherished one of all.

Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah and Happy Holidays

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.

Yale Youth Hockey Day at the Sound Tigers

All (Coaches, Players and Parents):
 
Yale Youth Hockey Day at the Sound Tigers:

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.
 
The kids should really enjoy the experience.

All:

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.
Congratulations

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:
