Webster Youth Hockey is pleased to announce we have achieved USA Hockey GOLD status for our performance on the 2+2 Challenge for the second season in a row (only 5 orgs in NY achieved GOLD level for 2016-17). WYHA has chosen to focus on recruiting NEW players to hockey via our successful Beginner Program and putting development programs in place so we will continue to have competitive teams at the Tier II Travel, Girls and House levels for many years to come.
The USA Hockey 2+2 Challenge rewards organizations who grow their U8 enrollment, Girls programs and achieve retention goals. Participation in the USA Hockey Try Hockey for Free program, Beginner incentive efforts, Girls recruitment and our Welcome Back to Hockey retention program early in the season are all part of our successful efforts to grow WYHA along with our new off ice facility (page down for info) opening in the 2017-18 season!

As many of you know, Officials Wearhouse will be leaving the Webster rink and consolidating into one location. Many of you have asked about WYHA gear as you plan for team expenses for next season.
Very soon, there will be a link on the WYHA home page for WYHA house and travel gear. The merchandise is fresh, exciting and something the kids will be really excited about. It features brands such as CCM, Bauer & Under Armour.
This online system will make it super easy for coaches & managers to place team orders. Parents will have the ability to order online and have the merchandise shipped directly to their home. Custom embroidery will be available.
In an effort to refresh the Webster Cyclones brand and keep the look consistent, we're requiring that teams select from the merchandise on this website only.
We will send you an email as soon as the website is up and running. We anticipate the website will be ready for order June 1st at www.4asports.com. Any questions before then can be directed to Sales@4asports.com
