Boulter Classic Tournament Schedules and Standings
3/12/2020: After an afternoon of negotiations with numerous parties both in the
hockey community and outside of it, the WYHA Board made the very
difficult decision to cancel the Boulter Tournament on the weekend of
March 12-15. This includes all games between local
teams scheduled for 3/12.
Please be patience with us as we process refunds of Tournament Fees. We will get this done as quickly as possible.
We appreciated the many teams who stated they would be coming and would support us in any decisions made.
Hopefully we will be able to hold this Tournament next year and teams will consider coming back next year.
Update: Our Treasurer has all of the info he needs to write checks but his full time job is one of those jobs which requires him to put in extra time due to the current chaos. So please be patient. Checks are written to the person who wrote the check and we have all of the addresses from the envelopes used to mail in Tournament applications (those that paid online we have your info too!).
Thank you to all teams who signed up!

NOTE 1: RWB 0:55 time slots include time to setup boards. RWB 1:05 slots include time to take down boards and do ice cut. The more coach/parent helpers with helmets we have to help, the faster this goes and the more time there is for game play! RWB Teams should be ready to enter the ice as soon as the previous teams finish or the zamboni finishes and the boards are set (or coaches are ready for them to enter). Ice cuts will occur every two game slots. All RWB/8U game are at the Webster rink!
NOTE 2: RWB Championship/Gold/Silver and Bronze/3rd/4th games may be moved from Home to Away sides (or vice versa) based on availability of volunteers for Timekeeping and Scorekeeping.

Tournament Corona Virus Update
Following up on our communication from 3/10, which featured a message from USA Hockey, the Boulter tournament for March 12-15 will proceed as currently scheduled. We have been monitoring recommendations from the CDC and USA Hockey and there have been no advisories regarding the cancellation of youth sporting events. There is no mandate from the local health department to shut down events.
We are requesting that all of the tournament rinks this weekend ensure that surfaces at the facilities are kept as clean as possible and soap dispensers are filled and the rinks have agreed.
Based on CDC recommendations, you should not plan to travel or attend a tournament if any of the following apply to you:
- You are in a high-risk group such as older adults or those with underlying conditions such as heart disease, diabetes or lung disease.
- You feel sick in any way or have a higher than normal temperature.

USA Hockey and Webster Youth Hockey recommend the following (based on USA Hockey's most recent communication regarding Corona Virus):
- Practice frequent and meticulous hand-washing with soap and water or alcohol-based hand rub
