Change Team: 
Tomorrows game - 2:10pm @ Armstrong
by posted 09/24/2021

Hey folks, tomorrow's game is at 2:10pm at Armstrong against Quincy.  Lets do the same thing as last week and reduce our time in small spaces together and show up dressed, or nearly dressed, or just a handful of us get totally dressed in the locker room.  At 1:55pm let's have everyone in the locker room and totally ready to go for coach talk and walk out. 

Tonight I recieved an email from the League to inform us that more referees have quit.  There was already a shortage.  This won't affect our game tomorrow, but there will be SSC games on Sunday that may not have a ref assigned.  That said, the League reminds us (coaches, players and fans) to go easy on the refs and ensure no more quit so our kids can enjoy the best hockey experience possible.  

See you at the rink!  (remember to bring BOTH jerseys!)

Update for today's game -
by posted 09/18/2021

Hey folks, a couple days ago the Covid protocol for youth hockey changed.  According to the PYH BOD it gives us more lattitude to determine who may be at risk of exposure when the team has a positive case.  This centers mainly on players being in a confined space together for 15 minutes or more.  (I will have more details and a reference soon, at this time this is all I have been told).  That said, we should attempt to be in the locker room together for less than 15 minutes.  So lets continue to spread out and come dressed or finish dressing along the bleachers, etc.  Then, with 15 mins before game time, each player should be in the locker room, ready to go for coach-talk and the walk out. 

Also, please do not forget to bring BOTH game jerseys, along with your neck and mouth guard.  

 Puck drop is at 5:40pm. See you at the rink this afternoon!

Game Saturday - 5:40pm, Armstrong
by posted 09/16/2021

Hey folks, just a couple of reminders.  We play at home this Saturday at Armstrong at 5:40pm against Pembroke.  Ideally we continue as we have been and some of us arrive already dressed and head to the locker room for lace-up and game talk.  Parents, please tie your player's skates quickly and head to the stands. 

Just a couple of reminders.  Please make sure your player's equipment is game ready.  This means, skates are sharpened and everything is ready.  A word about skate sharpening:  If you typically make the trek to Pure Hockey for sharpening, I recommend turning right instead of left and having the skates sharpened at The Bog pro shop, as they do a much better job there.  Also, please make sure your skater has a mouth guard and neck guard.  These are required by the SSC and the refs are watching for it.  

Things to talk about with your player leading up to the game: 

Defense, NEVER NEVER NEVER play the puck across the "red zone" (the area in front of our net).  When carrying the puck out of our zone we work it up the boards or cross it behind our net.  Just get it to the blue line, gain the red line, then PASS-SHOOT-DUMP the puck.  The question I like to ask the kids is "how far are you allowed to carry the puck?"  Answer: "as far as you can until you're attacked!".  I love to see an Offensive-minded defenseman carry the puck!  (the on-side winger will "cover D") when this happens.

Play aggressive!  We expect stick-lifts on D and STRONG stick on O.

Offsides:  Remind your player, especially if they are a first year Squirt, that they must pay attention to where the puck is and NOT cross the blue line until the puck does.  

Get pucks to the NET!  Once we get down their end, bombard the goalie!  

Have a great Friday!  See you Sunday.
