Tournaments


Tournaments are a great time for the kids to bond and build a team relationship. There are late night and early morning games. A lot of the tournaments are “Stay to Play” which means staying at a predetermined hotel is a must. We highly encourage you to join in on the fun, however we understand if you cannot make a tournament, this is something to discuss with your team manager and coach. Tournaments are not included in Dues and will be an extra cost.  Each tournament has an entry fee, hotel fees, and travel costs to consider. Typically you can expect one Tournament for the entirety of our organization to attend, and your coach may look for one or two more tournaments in addition. Including all fees, hotels, and other costs, most tournament weekends start around $300.00 and go up from there. 
 

Fundraising


We offer several fundraising opportunities for both the general fund and individuals dues. Sign up for these will be sent out by either the fundraising committee, your team’s manager, or the WYHA board members. Our organization relies heavily on volunteers and we ask that you sign up for a general fundraiser to help keep dues and other costs down for all of our members.

 

Committees/ Coaching


Do you want to give back or be more involved in the hockey lifestyle? We have many ways to do so. We have a welcoming committee, a fundraising committee, a disciplinary committee, and a hockey committee,if you are interested in participating in any committee, please reach out to a committee member or a board member to get more information on when each committee meets. If interested in coaching, you must first fill out an application to be reviewed by the Hockey Director, to be considered for the position. All coaching positions are volunteer only, but require hours of commitment on and off the ice.


 

Board Meetings


We invite and encourage you to join a board meeting. You can meet our trustees, voice concerns, or give praise where it is due. Meeting dates are on our website and reminders are sent out via email and sportsengine each month. If interested in becoming a board member, elections will be this summer. Nominations must be in prior to the June Board meeting and the election will be held in July. For more information contact Jay Robinson.
