Message from the President

Dear Laker Nation:

I hope that you have all had a wonderful summer and were able to spend time with family and friends.  The 2018-19 hockey season is fast approaching – we are so excited to see kids lacing up their skates and hitting the ice!

The Merrill Fay Ice Arena is projected to open on Tuesday, September 4th.  Practices will begin the week of September 24th.    Practice days will be Monday, Tuesday and Thursday.  Mini Mites will begin practice on Monday, November 5thThe smallest Lakers, our Learn to Skaters, will begin practice on Sunday, November 4th.  Please see the website for specific practice times.

On Saturday, September 22nd, we will be holding our 9th Annual LRYHA Golf Tournament. The tournament will be held at the Den Brae Golf Course in Sanbornton NH. This is a great event for our players, their families and other community members. We will allow one child to play with each foursome.  We will have kids’ tees and they get to play for free! There will be friendly competitions, prizes and raffles for everyone.   The event will end with a chicken BBQ. To inquire about registration or if you have questions, please contact Lyndi Girard, our event coordinator at or 603-520-8960.  

Now, a few housekeeping items…

Players MUST register with USA hockey (  and with LRYHA (  prior to taking the ice.  Players who have not registered will not be permitted to skate.

During the first week of practice:

  • Monday, 9/24 Check in with registrar, Rich Ellis
  • Pick up mandatory fundraising calendars- The calendar raffle will be for the month of December.  Raffle tickets are due no later than Tuesday, November 27th.
  • Monday 9/24 and Tuesday 9/25 Jersey fitting from 5-7pm in the equipment room.  Please make sure players wear their shoulders pads when being fitted.
  • Thursday, 9/27 Parent Meeting.  Please plan to be in the warm room once your child is on the ice for a parent meeting with the members of the board.

We are excited about our upcoming season.  As always, we encourage you to get involved in any way you can.  The Board of Directors are listed on our website if you would like information on how you can help.

We’ll see you soon at the rink…

Next Board Meeting

Date: Tuesday, May 21st

Time: There will be no formal Board Meeting. Off site work session.


Board Meetings

The LRYHA Board of Directors meet year round on a monthly basis, usually the 3rd Tuesday of each month.  We have an open door policy and invite and encourage any and all Laker parents to attend the meetings. The meetings are at 6pm in the rink's warm room, unless otherwise noted. You will have a chance during the timed 10 minute public session to share any concerns or ask questions of the Board. Outside of public session we ask you to observe should you wish to remain for the entire meeting. We will post the meeting date each month and attach the agenda as soon as it becomes available. We ask if you have a specific topic you will be sharing during public session, please email the President. This will allow us as a Board to be prepared and allow for the best use of your valuable time. We are a group of volunteers working hard to run a successful hockey program. We appreciate your feedback.
