Dear FHHA Parents, Players, and Volunteers,
It has been a great season so far, and as we move into the second half, I wanted to update you on what has been a busy year.
Our Learn to Play, House League, Select, and Rep team are having a very successful year thanks to the dedication of all our players and their coaching staff. Check out the NYHL website here
and see how amazing our Select teams are doing.
The league’s programs continue to be a huge success both on and off the ice. The Marlies Community Skate raised a substantial amount of money for the “EVERYONEPLAYS” program.
PLEASE don’t forget that the second part of that initiative- the MARLIES GAME on March 2nd- is still to come. Please continue to sell as many tickets as you can and if you feel like buying a few and donating them back to “JUMPSTART”® you can get a tax receipt for the full amount!
The Board has been busy with many things including the new updated league constitution which is posted on the website
There is also the new player development program which has been wildly successful and which we hope to expand next year. Special thanks to Allan Weiss for all his hard work on these initiatives.
We will be attempting to field more GTHL teams next year in different age groups. Anyone interested in more information should contact Steve Birch at email@example.com
We will be putting together the playoff schedule and trying to get it out to everyone earlier this year. Please be advised that the playoffs will start a week or two earlier in some divisions to allow for more playoff games. This has become necessary due to the large number of teams we have in the younger divisions.
As a final request, the Board and the arena management would greatly appreciate it if everyone could try to observe the rules when parking in the arena lot. It has been a horrific winter with many challenges, and respecting the rules will go a long way to helping alleviate the parking issues we seem to have week after week.
Thank you for being a part of FHHA and enjoy the rest of the season.
