Playing Divisions

Typically, in years past Spring hockey has been played at the age level a player will be the next season. Concerns have been brought to our attention regarding the player move up at the 12u to 14u age group. This is due to the big difference of “checking” being introduced at the 14u level. This is a valid concern as other organizations continue to play their birth year through the spring, and our upcoming 14u’s would be introduced into checking without proper instruction, resulting in a player safety concern. While we are working diligently to bring a “checking clinic” to Springfield prior to next season, this unfortunately will not help those for the spring program.

To give players and families more of a choice and potential safe option, we have come up with two ways to play:

1.     If a family and player would like to play at the age level they will be next season, they can do so.

2.     If a family and player would like to stay at the current age level, they can do so as well.

You will have the option to choose the age level you wish to play upon registration.

Again the SYHA is looking to foster a safe and fun atmosphere for all of our players as they choose to continue to play into the off-season.
