The Valley is attempting to revive a "regional all-star/select" program which is a program they have put together to supplement town hockey. In order to tryout/play, you need to play for your local town team. In a way, this goes back to the formula that existed when there were multiple leagues in Eastern Mass, and each league had a "select" team which represented the respective league (i.e., Greater Boston Jr Bruins, Middlesex Braves, North Shore Braves, etc.). You can see from the league info (website below), that games will be scheduled to ensure that they do not conflict with VHL Town games. Parkway is part of the "Greater Boston" region, along with approx 20 other towns (including Hyde Park, Dedham, Alston-Brighton, to name a few). Tryouts are 1st week in April + there will be teams at Mite Minor/Major, Squirt Minor/Major, and Peewee Minor levels.
McLaughlin League Semi-Finals will be held on Wednesday, March 20. 6 PM: Blackhawks vs. Bruins 7 PM: Maple Leafs vs. Red Wings Rostered players only. Finals to be held the following week, day and time TBA.
The March meeting of The PYH Board of Directors will be held tomorrow night (3/19) in the upstairs meeting room of the Elks Lodge 248 Spring St. at 7:00 PM Nominations will be taken for Board of Directors seats. As always, the public is welcome.
