SYHA Membership 2017-2018

SYHA Membership registration is now open for the 2017-2018 season.  Click on the link below to register.   In order to help offset a 14% ice cost increase imposed by the rink this year, we have increased the annual per family membership fee to $250.  However, SYHA families that obtain 25 volunteer credits (approximately 25 hrs) will be reimbursed the $250.  Reimbursements for volunteer credits earned will take place just before Christmas and at the end of the season.  More information will be forthcoming on volunteer opportunities, and volunteerism will be managed and tracked through SportsEngine's DIBS program.  All family members will have opportunities to earn volunteer credits toward reimbursement.  Activities such as coaching, being a team manager, managing the team website, serving on an SYHA committee, doing the scoreboard or scoresheet, manning the penalty box, and recruiting players are just some examples of the opportunities for parents to earn volunteer credits.  Helping with younger kids practices, attending recruiting events, and helping on Spirit Weekends are examples of opportunities for kids of all ages to earn volunteer credits.

All players must be registered members of SYHA prior to tryouts. Team registration fees will remain the same for 2017-2018.  Players will need to be registered for their teams following tryouts but prior to the first practice prior on August 22, 2017.
