Registration for Quincy Youth Hockey teams playing in the South Shore Conference is listed below.
Greetings Members of QYH
I hope this message finds you well. Please read this as it contains details on the upcoming season. Plans can change based on State and Local guidelines but at this time we are expecting to re-open the arena in late August. We need people to register so we can begin making plans for teams and setting ice schedules. As of July 20th we only have enough players registered to offer the following teams:
What about 6U, High School & Girls teams?
At this time we don’t have enough players registered for U6 or the High School levels. We also do not have enough girls registered for “Girls Only” teams. If you’re interested in playing on one of these teams we need you to register between now and July 31st otherwise we will not be offering a team at these levels in 2020-2021
Re-opening plan for the Arena & tryout schedule
Registration is open until July 31st.
After this date you will no longer be allowed to register for travel hockey for Quincy
What happens if I don’t register before July 31st?
Your child will not be able to play travel hockey for Quincy this year
Why do we have to register by July 31st?
QYH needs to make a commitment to the South Shore Conference in terms of # of teams so that they can make schedules etc. The South Shore Conference fees are 7-9k per team for full season and 4k for half season. We cannot afford to “hope to fill” rosters. We need to plan for the season based on the numbers confirmed on August 1st. We also must set the schedule for QYH for the season. Whatever ice time is not required as of August 1st will be sold to other programs/leagues. This will help the Arena recover operating expenses. The Arena is a privately owned facility, there are no public funds available to support the operating expenses of the Arena.
What about House League?
Openings for house league will be on first come first serve basis. Current members of the program will be given priority over non-registered members. House League availability will be determined by ice schedules and restrictions in place because of COVID. We do expect to offer a House League but the format and schedule are TBD.
What happens if Hockey is shut down? Or the season is cancelled prior to September 4th?
Please review our refund policy, all contingencies are covered. We have a full refund policy in place for cancellations and shutdowns. If a shutdown order is issued mid-season, the costs will be prorated based on consumption to date.
What happens if games are not allowed but “infra-squad scrimmages” and practices are allowed?
On August 4th we will meet to discuss the options, which include hosting “small ice drills” in 3v3 format, limiting the number of players on the ice but still allowing competitive, team based play. There are many options available. Our refund policy should provide some level of comfort in terms of recovering payments made should you decide to withdraw prior to September 1st.
It's been a long few months and we are ready to get back to playing hockey. Registration is open, please visit the link below to register for the upcoming season. Before you register please read the important notes about the registration process, refund policy and special considerations for the upcoming season.
As of July 6th Ice Hockey is still categorized as "High Risk" with restrictions in place stating no games. At this time our plans have not changed, we are moving forward with preparation for a full season. Our refund policy and registration process are well thought out and designed to be flexible in the event there is a shutdown.
The Registration "Home" is not currently available.
From what we know now we can expect the following, at least through the opening and start of the season. Of course anything can change and we will adjust our policies and process accordingly. We hope to be able to return to normal but we are planning for the restrictions in place now.
Keep in mind that during Skills sessions we have as many as 125 people in the rink at one time. During split ice Mite games we have over 250 people in the building during the transition from one game to the next. No where in the rules at this moment is any of this allowed. So we are patiently waiting for final guidance prior to the start of the season. We expect to communicate the details on August 10th.
Examples of requirements and restrictions in place now:
The Registration "Home" is not currently available.
5,000 Puck Challenge
Some of you may have already seen this, but this is always a good one to fall back on. Have your player shoot a total of 5,000 pucks. Practice variety: wrist shots, backhands, snap shots and slap shots. For those players who have better command of some of the shots mentioned, have them isolate targets for every 50-100 pucks they shoot daily; top corner, low blocker etc.
Keep a running tally over the next few weeks and send me an email when your player reaches 5,000. Some of you may already keep track and have a head start; that’s totally fine. We’ll keep a list of players who complete this challenge. You can also post their 5,000th shot on Facebook and tag QYH. We’d love it if players were wearing their QYH jerseys in their posts.
50 Puck Challenge
Some of you may have seen this as well, but this is great for stickhandling and focus. Line up 50 pucks (or other stationary objects that won’t move; coffee cups etc) in a straight line. You want a distance roughly 1 foot between each puck. The goal is to stickhandle between each puck down the line without touching ANY puck. If you touch or move a puck, you start from the beginning until you make it through without touching. Most examples of this online are being done on the ice and sadly we don’t have any ice to work with. If you do this in the street or at a park, you can stickhandle with a street hockey ball or golf ball.
