Good Evening Wolfpack Families. 
 
Welcome Back to Hockey! We thank you for your patience as we continue to make the best and safest decisions for your players.  Here is the schedule for this weekend, please note the changes to the goalie clinic schedule.  As to what level specific group you will be skating with, level coordinators and/or coaches will be contacting you via email with that information.  LTS will receive more information this weekend. 
 
Beginning on October 5th, we are pleased to announce that the Town of Whitestown has increased the number of players and coaches allowed in the building to 30.  This is exciting news and we have to rework our schedule so we kindly ask that you continue to be patient as we are making the necessary changes.   
Per the Town of Whitestown guidelines, there will be no parents or spectators allowed in the building at any time during WYHA ice. Players must be dressed prior to entering the facility except for helmet, skates, and gloves and are encouraged to leave their bags outside the facility.  Players must wear a face mask upon entering and exiting the facility and can only be removed prior to going on the ice. Players should bring their own labeled water bottles.  Additional guidelines will be provided once received.

Season Updates

By WYHA 09/27/2020, 6:00pm EDT

Season and opening weekend information.

We, as you all know, are under the strict guidelines of the Town of Whitestown and Governor Cuomo as to what we are allowed to participate in and how many are allowed in the rink itself.  We will not know if the season will include games, scrimmages, competitive play, as that is out of our control. 

As we strive to keep the lines of communication open, we realize that the schedule for the season has many on-edge as it has not been released. Each group, Mites and up, will skate a minimum of 3 times per week with the potential for a 4th skate with our rotating power skating clinics and goalie skates. We have a board meeting on Thursday and the schedule for the regular season beginning October 5th will be approved and posted on our website, sent in an email, and posted on our FB page.  LTS/LTP will receive more information after that meeting as well.

We understand the frustrations with the Active registration system as well and we have heard your concerns over the charges and fees. Due to a glitch in Active's system, raffle tickets were not charged at the same time for everyone. We are not utilizing Active after this season and will be switching to another system (Sports Engine) that charges smaller fees. Active charges 6.4% and this goes directly to Active, not to Whitestown Youth Hockey.  We have refunded any concession fees that were charged since the concession stand will remain closed for the season.  Our raffle will still take place this year in December. This raffle has been our fundraiser for the past three seasons and is an easy way for us to offset ice costs and keep registration fees down and has proven to be an efficient fundraiser. Many other sports do the same thing and once the tickets have been distributed, you keep the money after selling them.     

In the meantime, our Welcome Back to Hockey Weekend beginning on FridayOctober 2nd-4this the following; (This is ONLY for next weekend)

Kind regards,

Cyndi St. James
