    Volunteers Needed

    We are in need of a volunteer to help organize WYHA fundraising. This is vital role within our Association and this position will be responsible for helping to coordinate and facilitate fundraising opportunities. Please email Stephanie Bull if you are interested,

    We are also seeking a few volunteers to form the 2021/22 tournament committee. The committee will be tasked to find a tournament for the Association to play in on MLK or Presidents Day weekend. Contact Jay Robinson to volunteer,

    October Breast Cancer Awareness Boxes

    Thanks to a generous donation from the Wadsworth Veterinary Hospital all WYHA teams from 8U through High School will be able to support those affected by breast cancer in the month of October on the ice in both practices and games. Each player will be gifted: pink skate laces, stick tape, and helmet stickers. 

    When this idea was first proposed, team managers polled their teams about possible participation in showing their support while also communicating the cost in doing so. Within a few hours, the Wadsworth Veterinary Hospital had stepped in and offered to sponsor the entire project!  Last week orders were placed for team boxes containing laces, stick tape, stickers. When the orders arrive, boxes will be distributed to team managers.

    Not only will the display on the ice be inspirational, but the sponsorship is as well. This was not something we pursued as an association, which underscores the true spirit of altruism at work in the donation. The entire WYHA expresses its gratitude to the Wadsworth Veterinary Hospital for their support, leadership, and kind-heartedness!

    COVID Guidelines

    1) Parents and players: if you're feeling ill, do not enter the rink for a game, practice, or any reason at all. No exceptions.

    2) If COVID policies at ANIA change, we will let you know. Currently, signs at the rink recommend wearing a mask for those who are not fully vaccinated. Masks, however, are not required, and there's no limit on spectators in the arena.

    3) If you, or your player(s), are feeling ill with COVID-like symptoms, get tested.

    4) If you, or your player(s), receive a positive test, let your head coach and the WYHA President know. We are not going to release names of those who test positive for COVID. 

    5) If you, or your player(s), receives a positive test, consult the Health Department. Complete contact tracing. If another parent or player needs to quarantine, please inform the head coach and the WYHA President. 

    6) If you, or your player, need to quarantine, please do not enter the rink.

    7) Once all health protocols are cleared--whether due to quarantine or a positive test--get back on the ice, or in the building! We will have missed you!

    Samantha Vogelsberger

    Samantha Vogelsberger is the mother of WHS football player Ashtin Williams (senior, #17), Landyn Williams (sophomore, Wooster HS Oilers #39) and Gavin Williams (WHS freshman). In July, Samantha was diagnosed with Stage 3 breast cancer. Her fight officially began on Monday, August 30 with her first round of chemotherapy. Please consider purchasing a t-shirt to support Samantha as she battles breast cancer. All proceeds will go directly to Samantha, her husband Ryan, and the boys for any unexpected expenses they may encounter over the coming months. Bulk pick-up orders will be distributed in time to support Samantha at the October 1 home football game vs Mt Vernon.

    Goalie Training

    The WYHA is excited to offer goalie training for all Wooster Oilers goalies. Clinics will run twice a month throughout the season, at no cost to our goaltenders. One coach per team is asked to attend, to help the goalies to continue their skill development into their own team practices. The training will be provided by Vic Rumph.


    The Wooster Oilers online store is now open. Visit Squad Locker and order your new apparel.
