Tryouts Coming Up March 23 -24 and March 26 for Bantams!!!

2015 – 2016 Lakes Region Youth Hockey Season Tryouts are Here!!!

Important Info:

 Register  here and pay the $50 tryout fee BEFORE March 22nd  

 Participate in tryout warm-up practices on March 16th and 17th – at the time slot for the level you are trying out for (ex: if you are a 2nd year Squirt you will practice at the Peewee time)

 Mites, Squirts, Peewees - Attend tryouts on March 23rd and 24th – be sure to arrive early so your player has time to sign in and get his/her pinny assignment.  Please be sure your player attends the appropriate session.

 Bantams – Attend tryouts on March 26th @ 6:30-8:00.

 Be informed of your player’s placement by March 27th.

 Make deposit of $200 per family within 24 hours of player placement notification

Who should attend Spring Try-Outs?

Anyone interested in playing for the Lakers during the 2015-16 season. THIS WILL BE THE ONLY FORMAL TRYOUT FOR THE 2015-16 SEASON. Your player’s position on a team this current season will have NO impact on their placement for next year.  

It is important that all players participate in this tryout process.  As in the past, we hope that as parents you will help your players: register, prepare and participate in the established tryout sessions.  In the event, that your daughter/son cannot make tryouts or a portion of them, we ask that you inform the

President in advance. Do not skip tryouts and wait until the fall and attend practices with the hope of being placed on a specific team – placements in the fall will be the exception, not the norm.

Will we need to make a financial commitment to secure a position on a roster?

 Yes. Each family will be required to make a $200 deposit within 24 hours of March 27th to secure a position on the roster. This deposit will serve as your commitment to play for the Lakers during the 2015-16 season.

Will tuition costs be going up and why?

At this time we anticipate that tuition rates will be the same or near same as last year.  As always, this depends heavily on our membership. Setting our tuition rates is a highly complex process that is influenced by many factors including:

* number of players we have within the association during any given year

* ice cost has not been set yet, but we anticipate an increase of 2-3%

 * cost of additional benefits provided to players by the association

 * amount of money raised through fundraising efforts

Laker Closing Celebration March 19, 2015 6-7pm

Hello Laker Nation -

LRYHA, from Mini-Mites up through Bantams, will be coming together on Thursday, March 19th from 6pm-7pm to celebrate a successful season. We have appreciated your feedback from prior years to assist us with making it fun and just the right length! There will be no coach speeches this year to give the players more time to skate. Most coaches are having or have had more intimate year end team parties.

The evening will include the following:

  • 6pm - All skate under the lights to your favorite songs (Wear black team jersey, skates & helmet – no locker rooms)
  • 6:10pm – A brief season end summary & thank you from our President, Marcy Kelley
  • 6:15pm - Announcement of teams, coach handshake &  trophies (“Deejay” JR Lacey)
  • 6:45-7pm - All skate back under the lights

Jersey Collection will occur at tryouts so that we may focus on an evening of fun with little distraction. Please bring both black and white jerseys to your tryout. (For those few not trying out we will collect them at the close of the celebration upstairs in the warm room). Please leave name and sponsor tags on jerseys – we will carefully remove as needed next season.

PLEASE VOTE! Elections for President, Secretary, Registrar, and League Rep will be held during the celebration. An email will go out later today with a list of candidates. We will include a letter from each candidate who has opposition, as to why they deserve your vote. Ballots will be available when you walk in the lobby and the Ballot Box will be just inside the rink. The By-Laws were improved earlier this season to allow two votes per family (membership includes Learn to Skate through Bantams), and results will be posted within 24 hours.

***Please arrive early as we may have a few extra minutes of ice time before 6pm for the all skate. Reminder again there will be no open locker rooms – it will be dark as we skate under the lights.

We look forward to celebrating a successful 2014-2015 season!

Lakers storm the 2015 Challenge Cup in Marlborough, MA

As we anticipate the Blizzard of 2015, let’s first say congratulations to the Lakers organization who took the Challenge Cup by storm this past weekend! The Harris Family Furniture Mite Black team had two wins and a loss by just one goal. The Circle Dental Squirt 2 team had two wins and a loss. The Belmont Family Dental Center PeeWee 2 team had a win, tie and a loss. The Newfound Plumbing & Heating Squirt 1 team had a win and two ties to bring them into the playoffs on Sunday. The Allan Gilbert Builders PeeWee 1 team and Fay’s Boat Yard Bantam team were undefeated with three wins each to take them into the playoffs on Sunday. The Newfound Plumbing & Heating Squirt 1’s lost in the playoff 4-1 but left the ice proud.

Allan Gilbert Builders’ PeeWee 1’s won 4-0 and Fay’s Boat Yard Bantam’s won 3-2 in the playoff round to advance them to the afternoon championship games. What a nailbitter both games were, being played at almost the same time as we ran from one end of the 7-rink building to the other to catch all the action. The Bantam’s were down 1-0 to the Nonotuck Knights from Easthampton, MA with less than two minutes left in the game and tied it up. With less than 45 seconds left they scored their second goal to take home the hardware! Just after this amazing win in the last three minutes, the PeeWee 1’s turned a 0-0 game against the Wonderland Wizards from Bridgeport, CT into a win on a power play!

The Lakers organization couldn't be more proud of all the players accomplishments with all teams with wins under their belts, three teams making it to the playoffs, and two champions out of six teams entered into the tournament. We bonded as players and parents and had a great weekend of hockey! Thanks to all for traveling to Marlborough and a special thanks to Dawn Guerin our Tournament Director for the help with our accommodations. Stay safe this week!

Reminder - Zero Tolerance Policy

As a reminder to our parents and families, USA Hockey has a zero tolerance policy when it comes to conduct at USA Hockey sanctioned sporting events.  Comments made should only be positive and encouraging and may never be disparaging to a player, coach or official.  These matters will be taken seriously by our organization and could result in disciplinary action.

The "Laker Way" has been to welcome other parents to our facility, act respectfully to coaches and officials, and give opposing players their due. We have maintained those standards when visiting other facilities.  Let's be sure to continue with this same philosophy.

Thank you for your time and consideration.

Marcy Kelley
LRYHA President
