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!!

NOTE 2: WNYAHL has removed the exception for Major aged players on Minor teams effective for the 2017-18 and following seasons.

4) Participation in Older Divisions of District or National Championships – 2017-18 Season and Beyond
Beginning in the 2017-18 season, no player 12 years of age or younger (as defined in the age classification chart for the current season) is eligible to play on a team intending or declared to compete in the District or National Championships or playoffs leading thereto. A player 13 years of age or older may play on a youth or girls’ team in an older classification at a District or National Championship Tournament only if the applicable Affiliate’s rules or decisions, and the applicable local program’s rules or decisions, permit that player to do so. A player residing in one Affiliate may not play on a team in an older classification in a different Affiliate unless both the Affiliate where the player resides and the Affiliate where the player desires to play have granted permission to play in an older classification.
