In order to register with PYH, all skaters MUST first be registered with USA Hockey and ALL registrations MUST be done online- no Exceptions. Please see the information and link below for instructions:
If you have not already done so, please make sure that you register your child with USA Hockey for the 2015-16 season. If you have lost your USA Hockey confirmation number, you can look it up on the USA Hockey website as well:
Once you have the USA Hockey confirmation number (the 4th digit of the number will be a 6 for the 2015-16 season), please log back into your account on the PYH website and enter the USA Hockey number into your child's record by clicking on his or her name:
It is the parent/guardian's responsibility to make sure that their child(ren) are registered/insured with USA Hockey before they get on the ice for a practice, skill or game. Children cannot be put onto their team's official roster until their USA Hockey registration is completed.
As of September 1st, no player or coach will be allowed on the ice unless you or your child is properly registered.
At a recent meeting, the PYH Board of Directors reviewed travel for the upcoming season. The Board approved the following tuition schedule for our various travel teams which participate in the Middlesex-Yankee Conference, Valley League and Town Line (Mite) for the 2015-2016 season. Fees and Information for our House (non-travel) programs (Learn to Skate, Instructional and Mite House) will be announced in a separate email.
For the 2015-2016 season we are excited to announce that our girls program is switching league affiliation and will participate in the Middlesex-Yankee Conference. Also, due to the increasing interest in girls hockey, we will be fielding two U-10 teams in addition to our U12, U14 and U16/19 teams.
We are also adding a Mite travel team to those Parkway teams participating in the Valley Hockey League. This team is separate from our Town-Line program and utilizes a combination of cross-ice and full ice games over a 25 week season.
Travel team fees are based on several factors including costs for 30-35 regular season games and playoffs depending on league affiliation (12-15 games for half-season teams; 25 for Mite travel), practice sessions, and operating costs. Fees are also determined by the number of players at each level, league registration, ice costs, and prompt payment of fees by families. While Parkway has been presented with increased operating costs for the upcoming season for ice and league games, we have attempted to subsidize the increases as best we can.
Also, included in this year's travel fees are the costs for new uniforms. Each player will receive a home and away travel jersey which they will use for two seasons and will belong to the player and not PYH. Replacement jerseys will need to be purchased should they be lost or destroyed.
All travel team games are scheduled to start right after Labor Day. Coaches will be reaching out to players regarding practices which will begin during the last two weeks of August.
Girls U10 / U12 / U14 - $1,250
Girls U16/18 - $650

Squirt / PeeWee / Bantam - $1,300
