Player Registration

2022-2023 SEASON REGISTRATION

Dear EYHA Families,

The EYHA Board members would like to welcome all our new and returning hockey families, and let you know that registration for the 2022-23 season is now OPEN. We are currently registering both Boys and Girls for Newbees, House, 8U Travel, Hybrid 10U/12U Travel, 10U Travel, 12U Travel, 14U Travel and 18U Travel.  

Registration will close at midnight on Friday August 26th

NEW THIS YEAR!

This year marks the 50th Anniversary of Essex Youth Hockey! To honor 50 years of hockey in our community, EYHA has designed new jerseys with an updated logo. The new uniforms are reversible; only one jersey and one pair of socks is needed for each player.  The colors were specifically chosen to complement our EYHA High School teams: Essex High School and Mount Mansfield High School.

Below is a sample of the new Travel Game Jerseys which will include the player's last name and assigned number.

 

NOTES about 22-23 SEASON REGISTRATION:

2022-2023 Fees Link

 

JERSEYS / SOCKS:

NEWBEE or HOUSE players: a Practice Jersey with the new logo is included in the registration fee.

HYBRID and TRAVEL players: a new reversible Game Jersey and reversible Game Socks is included in the registration fee. Players will need to indicate correct size of jersey and socks during registration. Practice jerseys with the new logo will be offered (but not required if a player already has an older set of Blue and White EYHA Practice Jerseys) for purchase during registration.  Please note 10U-14U travel players MUST have an EYHA blue and white practice jersey for the season. 

 

HYBRID 10U/12U COED TEAM:

For those families interested in hockey but don't want the full commitment of travel hockey, we are pleased to introduce our first hybrid team that will be combined of 10U and 12U players. This team will practice 2x/week however they will only have one local game per weekend. This team will have the option of attending a travel tournament in lieu of the state tournament. The team will be coached by Steve Heney with other assistants as well. This is a great opportunity to keep kids interested in playing hockey without the full commitment of Travel. We are capping this team at 14 skaters and 2 goalies. 

 

18U FULL SEASON

Essex Youth Hockey is excited to announce that we will again be offering a full season 18U Team. The season will run from December to March beginning after high school tryouts and include; 2-3 practices per week at local rinks, 1-2 games per weekend and 2 Tournaments.  

 

REGISTRATION PAYMENTS:

Everyone signing up for Travel will have an option to pay in full or be put on our payment plan. If you choose the payment plan, please make sure that you have the funds available on the dates listed.  If you have any immediate questions or concerns, please email Jennifer Villamil at the registrar email below.

 

TOURNAMENTS:

We are actively seeking out-of-state tournament opportunities for Travel teams.  Registration fee includes one (1) tournament per Travel team (Hybrid Travel team excluded). Additional tournament opportunities are available at the discretion of (and paid for by) each individual Travel team.

 

EYHA FUNDRAISER RAFFLE

Similarly to years past, EYHA registration will include $100 raffle ticket purchase per player.  Families will have the opportunity to recoup these funds by selling 10 raffle tickets ($10 each)

 

If you have any questions during registration, please contact Jennifer Villamil at registrar.eyha@gmail.com.

 

We appreciate all those who support Essex Youth Hockey, and we look forward to seeing you on the ice again this season.

Sincerely,

The EYHA Board of Directors
