Happy August WYHA families! Hockey season is getting closer and closer and we have facilitated an equipment swap for those who may have extra gear that others could use.
Date: Saturday August 13
Location: Webster Ice Arena, 865 Publishers Parkway
Recommended equipment drop off time: 9-11a
Recommended pickup/shopping time: 11a-1p
We are piloting this and are facilitating a donation/exchange only (if you wish to sell any gear you can email firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com and we would be happy to post it on our swap site). Therefore, no "selling" at this event please. Feel free to just drop off and leave. You may pick up anything left over at 1pm should you wish to retain it, otherwise it will be donated elsewhere.
PLEASE NOTE: equipment must be in good condition. Helmets must not be expired. Any on-ice/safety gear must protect its next user, so please avoid bringing any equipment that may have tears, holes, etc.
A few of us will be on hand to help keep things organized by size. WYHA is not acting as a broker, just a facilitator by providing space and time.
We hope this helps clean up your basement or garage and look forward to seeing you on the 13th!
Should you have any questions feel free to email Don Reeves (Equipment Manager) at firstname.lastname@example.org

Two Clubs – one cool project
Webster Youth Hockey and the Rochester Grizzlies will be working together on a pilot program for the 2016-17 season. The two organizations share similar philosophies centered on the development of skaters in the areas of foundational skills, discipline, fun, sportsmanship and respect. The local region is very fragmented, and we want to change the excessively competitive culture and work together to build more opportunities for the local youth hockey players.
The pilot program will start with the ’03 age players. We imagine you have many questions about why this is happening and how it will work. We are still working on logistics but want to reassure you that each organization will remain independent. Our goal is to strengthen the overall opportunities for the ’03 level and grow within each organization. Both organizations are committing to a community partnership approach, working together in order to improve opportunities for all skaters.
