WELCOME 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 2023-2024 season is now OPEN. We are currently registering both Boys and Girls for NewBees, House, 8U, 10U, 12U, 14U and 18U.
EYHA PLAYER ELIGIBILITY:
While priority will be given to players within our EYHA communities (Essex, Essex Junction, Westford, Bolton, Jericho, Huntington, Richmond, Underhill) AND those who have previously played for EYHA, registration of NEW players from outside our borders will be contingent upon approval of the EYHA Executive Board.
2023-2024 EYHA HOCKEY PROGRAMS
TIER 2 TRAVEL PROGRAM ***NEW THIS YEAR***
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. The registration for this will stay open through the end of November to catch any players that may not make the high school teams.
This year in order to create flexibility and to give our players the opportunity for additional skill sessions, we have created “Early Fall Skills” and “In-Season Advanced Skills”. These sessions will be coordinated by our Director of Player Development and will be staffed by EYHA and local guest coaches. 2009-2015 birth-year players are eligible as well as 2016 birth-year players who are entering their 2nd year of 8U travel.
MORE LOVE FOR GOALIES
We are pleased to announce that EYHA has secured a Grow The Game Grant from VSAHA that provides quick change goalie gear for all 8U teams along with training for EYHA coaches on how to better incorporate goalie-specific drills into regular practices. This will give EYHA the ability and training to grow our goalie program.
In recognition of the pivotal role that goalies play in our association and acknowledging the additional costs often incurred for specialized equipment and instruction, EYHA has determined that full-time goalies at 12U, 14U, and 18U levels will have their fees waived.
Committed Goalies at the 10U level will receive a 50% reimbursement at the end of the season.
JERSEYS AND SOCKS
NEW THIS YEAR: As part of the 2023-2024 registration fee, each Travel 10U, 12U, 14U player will receive a new set of practice jerseys. There will be a white and a blue jersey with the new EYHA logo. Players must wear EYHA official practice jerseys for all EYHA practice and skill sessions as they are considered the mandatory practice uniform. Practice jerseys aid coaches with practice planning while displaying the EYHA team spirit and fostering unity within teams.
NewBees, House and 8U will receive a single practice Jersey as we split the players into different groups based on abilities at each level.
8U -10U -12U -14U Coed and Girls are required to have an EYHA reversible game jersey and game socks. These items will be available to purchase during registration for all NEW travel players and returing players who may need to order a new size. Please do your best to pick the correct size for your child keeping in mind the jersey and socks are reversible and will fit differently than the single jerseys.
We are hoping to plan a day to have players meet at the rink prior to the season to try on the jerseys so we don't have to reorder if the incorrect size is picked.
We are actively seeking out-of-state tournament opportunities for Travel teams. Registration fee includes one (1) tournament per Travel team. Additional tournament opportunities are available at the discretion of (and paid for by) each individual Travel team.
This year due to early registration we are giving everyone the option to pay in full or to split the payments as seen on the chart below. 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.
Please note, the 12U T2 team will be determined after evaluations. If you are selected and accept the invitation for this team, there will be an extra fee of $200 due upon your confirmation. See more details below.
