News about our summer sessions, registration for the 17-18 season, practice schedules and important dates.

SYH Members,

Congratulations to all of our 5th and 8th grade graduates, and to all our athletes on finishing another school year.

Our summer skate started this week, and will take place on Monday and Wednesday evenings through August 16th. There will be NO ICE the week of July 4th. Birth years 2007-2010 will skate on Mondays from 4:30pm-5:30pm and Wednesdays from 5:00-6:00pm (W). Birth years 2003-2006 will skate on Mondays from 5:30pm-6:30pm and Wednesdays from 6:00-7:00pm. If you have not registered and are interested, we still have a few spaces left. There is more information and paperwork to register available here.

Registration for this coming hockey season will be live soon, please be on the lookout for that email notification.

We have made an effort to open and close registration earlier this year. This decision is based on the need to have the number of SYH teams determined before the schedulers meeting in late August. PLEASE NOTE: Registration will close on August 22nd. The early bird discounted rate will be available until July 31st.

From it’s conception, Stowe Youth Hockey has depended heavily on it’s volunteers. Over the years, the level of support has varied greatly between families, with some volunteering more hours than expected and others less. In an effort to equalize volunteer hours and ensure enough support for our events and games, we are asking families to agree to a volunteer commitment. Going forward, the board has decided that parents and guardians must pledge to volunteer 12 hours throughout the season per skater. We have also decided to offer a buyout option for $250 for families who cannot commit to 12 hours. Most families are already volunteering at least 12 hours working the score clock or manning the penalty box during games, managing teams, writing Stowe Reporter articles, etc., and we feel this is a number that will be easily met by most families. 

The practice schedule for this coming season is listed below. Practices will begin the week of October 16th and will continue through February 22nd, with the exception of the Girls 12U team, which will practice from November 6 - January 22nd. Teams who qualify for post season play can expect a modified practice schedule after February 22nd.
