ABYHA is again running a Coat Drive in partnership with the Acton Lions Club. Do you have any slightly worn warm coats you can send to someone in need?
Please download the attached PDF flyer for all the information.
The team that donates the most coats will win a Pizza Party at Bella Famiglia!
Last year the Peewee 1's were the big winners.
There's still time to get your official ABYHA hockey bag for Christmas!
The bags are high quality strong canvas construction, and cost $60.

Congratulations to all that participated in the Middle School Tryouts. The rosters for each team have been finalized.
Next Steps to follow:

Each team will have their first round-robin games during jamboree weekend 11/22 - 24.
There will be a team page for each team at ABYHA.org. The first of two team practices will be held next week prior to the jamboree. Coaches will be contacting team members with a welcome email and an update on the specifics for each team.
Jerseys have been ordered for all first year players and any returning players that ordered them during tryout registration and should be available prior to jamboree weekend. Each player will receive both a home and away jersey. The cost of each set is $48 and will be collected separately at a later date.

Dear AB Hockey Families,
With the New Year upon us and March heading our way, the ABYHA board would like to share some information about what we have planned for next year.
The tuition to play next year will be $1450.00 which is up $100 from this year. The rate increase is because we will be playing 36 league games versus 30 league games in previous years. Also, our practice ice went up $15.00/hour this year and we decided not to increase tuition this year. To make up the difference we sold some practice ice. We are also no longer giving a goalie discount due to the goalie clinics. Midget tuition will be $550.00, the 2 hour skill session on Mondays is included.
Despite what you might be hearing, all AB Mite teams will play full ice games. They will play in the Tri-State Mite Hockey League which is all full ice games. Also, Mite teams will have a set practice of Mondays and Fridays throughout the season.
We will continue with skill sessions for Bantams down to Mites. Goalie clinics on Sunday evenings will continue at Stop-It.
We know this becomes a very stressful time of year for hockey parents and we know we offer one of the best values around. Most of our volunteer coaches are former college hockey players that love the game of hockey and enjoy teaching players and watching their development. Our program is not a win at all cost organization. Our program is committed to player development, good competition, sportsmanship and having fun.
Please use the button above to complete your registration for the upcoming season. This registration is only for travel teams Squirts through Midgets.
Everyone must complete this registration for Squirts through Midgets, even if you completed the tryout registration in March.
If you are coaching this season, please complete the Coach Registration first, as you will receive the code for your USA Hockey fee reimbursement at the end of the registration.
DO NOT use this registration to register for MITE LEVEL Hockey.
If you have outgrown your jerseys, or need new or replacement jerseys, please click the link below to order new jerseys.
Please DO NOT order jerseys for Mite players, as mite jerseys are supplied by the program.
AB PW2 Gold wins the State Championship, beating both Waltham teams in their own rink.
This past March, the PW2 Gold team competed in the State Tournament in Waltham. 16 teams qualified for the tournament. After going 3-0 in round robin play, AB PW2G advanced to the semi-finals vs. Waltham 2 and scratched thier way to a 2-1 victory. The Finals on Sunday night were against the other Waltham team in the tournament. AB was down 1-0 with less than 3 minutes to play when Nick Beck fired a shot from the point, through traffic, and found the top corner to tie the game. Regulation time ended with the game tied at 1.
At the 1:07 mark of the first overtime period Barrett Genovese took a feed in front, got off one shot, than grabbed his own rebound to give AB the victory.
Congratulations to these boys on a great tournament!
