Hockey Paused Until Nov 7th

 

Last night, the Massachusetts Department of Public Health announced that beginning today, ice rinks are not permitted to open for amateur ice hockey until November 7.  Our understanding is that this is intended as an opportunity for a reset, as some in the Massachusetts Hockey community have not been following public health guidance.

All Saugus-Lynnfield Youth Hockey on-ice practices and games are canceled until November 7.  Our coaches are looking into creating off-ice activities in order to maintain fitness and team chemistry during this time.  

We remain confident in our ability to safely continue with our season when we are permitted to do so.  In the interim, we will continue to evaluate our protocols and remain in close communication with Massachusetts Hockey, and our partners with Valley Associates, the operators of Kasabuski.

As always, we hope you and your families remain safe and healthy.  Please continue to take care of each other and don't forget to check in on your teammates, even if you can't see them at the rink.  We look forward to resuming our season soon.

Important Rink Protocols Update from VHL

 

There has been an update from the Valley Hockey League with important information regarding rink protocols.  The details can be reviewed by clicking here.

The key points in the update include:

  • Stricter policy regarding spectators. Only one spectator per player is allowed.  Parents arriving with siblings may be denied entry.  Note that some rinks are not allowing any spectators at all.  (currently Haverhill & Flynn Rink are not allowing any spectators)
  • Players are asked to not enter the rink until 15-minutes prior to game time.
  • Parents are not allowed in the locker rooms.  Skates must be tied prior to the player entering the locker room or tied by a coach.
  • Players and coaches must remain in locker room until buzzer sounds for pre-game warm-ups.
  • Only 2 coaches are allowed on the bench during the game.  

Many of these protocols and policies have been in place since the start of VHL play, but they have either been ignored or followed inconsistently.  If we don't do our part and follow these guidelines, there is a strong chance that rinks may move to a No Spectator policy for the remainder of the VHL season.

Our teams have a number of games this weekend and in the future, and the state, Massachusetts Hockey and rink owners will be watching.  We appreciate your cooperation for the sake of our players.

Thank you
SLYH Board

Stars Mite Development Program


The Stars continued their strong VHL play this weekend with our Mite teams beginning the season winning 3 out of 4 games!! Congrats to all the players, coaches and parents for coming to practice every week during these crazy times. Everyone had a great time playing against an outside opponent for the first time and representing our towns!


This year the Stars are excited to have two Mini-Mite teams in the Mite Development League at Mass Bay Hockey Center. Games are every Sunday, and the teams practice 2x/week. We still have spots open for players to join. Skating and some learn-to-play hockey experience is required. You can register today at www.lynnfieldyouthhockey.com or email for more information.

 

Also, if you're looking for helmet or stick stickers this season, our team store at Stick Bandits is open and they are offering a 40% discount off every order by using the Promo Code SEPT40 through this Wednesday, Sept. 30th.
