TCYHA Injury Policy 04/02/2012 TCYHA Family,
We would like to briefly address our injury policy.
Scholarship Opportunity -- Shelley L'Ecuyer Memorial Scholar
The L.U.K Crisis Center has announced the 4th Annual Shelley L'Ecuyer Memorial Scholarship. Shelley was devoted to her family, advocated for the youth of Central MA and was passionate about ice hockey. The Shelley L'Ecuyer Memorial Scholarship will reflect these values that Shelley demonstrated throughout her life.
Two $250.00 scholarships will be presented to youth whose families are having difficulty or are unable to afford the season registration fee to play hockey or who cannot afford skates or other equipment. The scholarships will be presented during the Fitchburg Women's Hockey League Tournament on February 22, 2015.
Families interested in applying must have a player between the ages of 11 and 13 and must create an expression by the youth of "What Playing Hockey Means to Me". The expression may be an essay, drawing, poem, song, or something else that the youth uses to express himself/herself.
Responses must be received by February 2, 2015. Please contact Mike Roberts at
with questions and comments. Please make your submissions to
prior to the deadline and the Board of Directors will present final submissions to LUK.
Learn to Skate/Learn to Hockey Walkons Now Available
We are offering interested players a walkon rate of $15 per session for Learn to Skate and Learn to Hockey. These walkons are a great chance to improve your skills and the walkon rate makes it easy to participate when you have time. Our Learn to Skate and Learn to Hockey are run by Peak Performance.
Working together with Twin City, Peak Performance has created a world-class learn to skate and hockey development program. We feel that our program is leaps and bounds ahead of the competition. Children will receive excellent on-ice attention by our professional coaches.
Learn to Skate/Learn to Hockey is recommended for skaters ages 4 and up. It emphasizes skating techniques in a fun environment designed for those who have never skated or those who want to improve their hockey or figure skating. Participants will be evaluated and advanced only after meeting specific skating skill standards.
We're also still accepting full-season registrations. We will prorate your registration fee based on how many sessions are left.
Please register online if you are interested in full season, or pay in person week to week.
New Members -- Import your schedule into Google Calendar
Many of you already are doing so, but for those who have not yet, here is a video explaining how you can add your team's schedule directly into your Google Calendar so that it is available on your Android smart phone or computer.
Welcome new members. There have been many questions recently on accessing schedules for your team, particularly from new players in either No Player Left Behind, Learn to Skate, and House Hockey. Accessing your schedule is easy.
To do so, use the Team menu above in the horizontal navigation menu. From there, choose select Choose a Team, your division, and then your team. For example, U11 No Player Left behind would be Team -> No Player Left Behind -> U11 NPLB.
You will also begin to receive email notifications approximately two days before each scheduled practice or game. The email will let you know the date, time, and rink that you will be at. For those that are new, there are two rinks at the Civic Center, Gaetz and Landry. The Gaetz is the rink closest to the street. Landry is next to the Gaetz and is separated by the parking lot.
We would like to briefly address our injury policy.
In the players' best interests, any injury that results in a player missing games or receiving treatment by a physician requires a clearance note from a physician before the player will be allowed back on the ice. This note will also serve to close out the accident form that is generated at the time of injury, and will be kept in confidence.
While we do not wish to place an additional burden on you, such prudence is required for the long-term health of all of our children.
Thank you for your cooperation.
If you have any questions, please contact your division director or the players representative in person, or email the appropriate one at:
