These are exciting times here at Webster Youth Hockey! Please join me in welcoming our travel coaches for the upcoming 2018/19 season. This may be the most experienced group we have ever had. With that said, I’d like to welcome some new faces to WYHA.
First up, Rory Fitzpatrick, although a 10 yr. NHL veteran, Rory has dedicated many hours to giving back to youth hockey. He has coached countless youth teams since his retirement from pro hockey. Rory will attempt to lead the 14U Bantam Major tournament bound team to a state title and a hopeful run at nationals.
In addition, I’d like to welcome Brad Richard. Brad is a former ECHL and AHL player and was an All American and two-time captain in college. Brad will be coaching a 14U Bantam Major team.
I’d like to extend a warm welcome back to a couple of returning coaches. After a short stint at another organization, Jamie Newtown will be returning to WYHA. Jamie played college hockey at RIT and will be coaching a 13U Bantam Minor team.
I’m also pleased to announce that Bob Bolton will be returning as well. Bob is a college hockey veteran who has coached at all levels including high school and his teams have won the WNYAHL league championship for 3 of the last four years. He will be the co-head coach of the 14U Bantam Major tournament bound team with Rory Fitzpatrick.
Last but not least, I’d like to thank all of the WYHA returning coaches for volunteering for another year of hard work and dedication to the great sport of hockey and for being the great role models that they are to the youth players at WYHA.
Please note that all the coach’s bio’s and season plans will be posted soon. If you have any questions, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Best of luck to all at tryouts!!

PCX Sports Performance
The PCX Difference
Good morning Cyclones:
On behalf of the Officers & Directors of Webster Youth Hockey, we are very pleased to announce a long-term agreement made today between WYHA and the principals of PCX Sports Performance. We are incredibly excited about this partnership and welcome Todd, Jon and the team at PCX to the Cyclone family. We will be working with the group at the newly formed PCX Sports Performance at the Cyclone Center. I would like to thank all the WYHA volunteers, coaches, officers, directors and committee members who helped make this possible.
We are planning an initial soft opening of the facility on Friday January 22nd. The center is 2,400 sq. ft. of space located at the Webster Ice Arena and will be dedicated to off-ice training, run by the professional trainers & instructors from PCX Sports Performance. As an organization we felt it was imperative we bring this training to our kids to further enhance their hockey experience. The team at PCX brings a philosophy & mindset that parallels WYHA & USA Hockey’s core values and will apply those to our kids in this new facility. PCX trainers & coaches have worked with young athletes who've gone on to play at the high school, collegiate and professional level and will bring that knowledge and expertise to our kids here at WYHA.
So, please join us in welcoming Todd, Jon and PCX to the Cyclone family. Here's to many years of fantastic training for our kids.
R. Reed Yancey, President of WYHA
