Who Needs Ice?

Cape Ann Youth Hockey, along with some folks named the Boston Bruins, pulled off a fantastic event yesterday afternoon….all in the name of the Open Door Food Pantry.  The Boston Bruins Street Brigade Clinic gave about 50 kids the opportunity to participate in some street hockey games, meet Blades (the Bruins mascot), and receive gifts from the Boston Bruins.  In return, Cape Ann Youth Hockey and the Bruins simply asked that participants make a donation to the incredibly worthy Open Door Food Pantry.  A win-win!

Another example of great things happening on any given day within our community!

A huge thanks to all of those involved!  It is never too late to make a donation! Please consider.

Bruins Street Brigade hits Cape Ann Youth Hockey!

Well, we’re back to school and that can only mean one thing…we’ll soon be back to the hockey rink too!  Soon, meaning next week.

I’ve been known to complain about the cold, crazy hours at the rink, but…between you and me…I wouldn’t have it any other way!  My boys love the game and being a part of Cape Ann Youth Hockey has been a fantastic experience for us all.

For any of you fellow hockey families, don’t forget about this great event!  A win-win for sure.  A win for the kids and a win for the Open Door Food Pantry who will receive donations from all registered players!  Check out the link below for much more information!  See you there!

Families are finding it tough to find the extra funds to allow the kids to try hockey.  Pure Hockey is going to help make the day exciting for the kids and take some of the financial pressure off the parents by offering pre-registered participants a goodie bag containing a tee shirt, lanyard, sticker, bracelet and a coupon for a 50% discount off their youth starter package (while supplies last). The package contains a helmet with mask, shoulder pads, elbow pads, gloves, shin guards, pants, stick and bag. They also throw in a free pair of skates!

Advance on-line registration is required and space is limited.

Cape Ann Youth Hockey, Girls Hockey: Girls skate for FREE on Saturday, 21 / Sign-ups for 2012-13 season

Cape Ann Youth Hockey is hosting a Free On-Ice skating session with Open Enrollment / registration for the Girls Hockey 2012-13 season this Saturday, April 21 from 4:00-5:00 at the Dorothy Talbot rink at O’Maley Middle School in Gloucester. Based on the groundswell of interest over the past few years for such a program — and as confirmed by the attendance to the first two open ice sessions earlier this spring — Cape Ann Youth Hockey representatives will be available to sign up interested players and answer questions about this program.

Girls interested in playing for U14, U12, and U10 teams for the upcoming 2012-2013 season in the Middlesex Yankee Conference Girl’s Hockey League are invited to sign up this weekend. CAYH will also be registering girls at the U8 level and younger for participation in programs that range from In-House to Cross-Ice teams. The registration fee is $50.

All girl hockey players in this age range are welcome to the FREE skating session, even if not yet committed to signing up on Saturday.

A steady increase of girl registrants to the Cape Ann Youth Hockey program over the past few years has accentuated a trend that is being recognized across the country: the popularity of Girls hockey is growing by leaps and bounds. In this time there have been countless inquiries about the viability of an all girl teams here in Cape Ann. This and the tremendous success of the first two sessions have illustrated the desire for such a program here on the North Shore.

This is the third of four free spring hockey clinic sessions this spring. During these sessions we have been joined by 42 girls from ages 5 to 14 and ranging from beginners skill level to one who played for the O’Maley Middle School Hockey team this past season. These athletes came from Gloucester, Rockport, Essex, Manchester, Hamilton, Beverly, Danvers, Marblehead, and Reading to have fun, compete, and improve on their respective games. The sessions are being run by a core group of volunteer coaches who are certified (patched) through USA Hockey.

The first session included on-ice coaching from national treasure Ben Smith, of US Olympic Women’s Ice Hockey medal-winning coaching fame and his wife Julie Sasner, whose accolades include a stellar career as a Harvard Women’s Ice Hockey player and coaching at the college and national levels. The program will also benefit from the goalie coaching expertise of Joe Bertagna, former Boston Bruins and Olympic goalie coach.

The next free ice session will be sometime over the next few weeks and will be announced soon.

If you are interested in skating on Saturday, just show up by 3:30 — there is no cost to skate. There will be some drills for skating and stick handling as well as competitive scrimmaging. However, in order to claim a roster spot for the 2012-2013 season simply fill out a registration form and submit $50 to CAYH anytime between 3:00 and 6:00. We will also be hosting additional on-ice practices, scrimmages, and evaluations before the 2012-13 season. During the 2012-13 season, practices will be at the Talbot Rink in Gloucester.

Additionally, hockey-minded individuals (including coaches, parents, female hockey players), who would like to participate as volunteers, whether on- or off-ice, please be sure to leave your name and contact with the CAYH representatives at the registration booth on Saturday.
