CYH Season Update

Dear Parents,
 
I wanted to quickly give you an update on events at Canton Youth Hockey.  Thanks to the help of our leagues, several neighboring hockey programs, and several nearby rinks, we will be in good shape for the remainder of the season as we wrap up our games and playoffs.  Some adjustments in our plans will occur, but we will be working on posting the schedules as quickly as possible, to include dates for player evaluations and some end of year activities.  Thanks to those who have reached out with offers of assistance; it helps more than you know, and I want to acknowledge that as I may not have the opportunity to individually thank everyone.  As for next season, our leagues, South Shore Conference and Yankee Conference, will be fully able to support and accommodate our teams for our normal game schedules.  As the information is ever-changing, and rumors can swell, we will work closely with the Town of Canton and the State to determine the status of our beloved Ponky.  We are committed to offering the excellent program that you are accustomed to and will proceed with that goal in mind.  We realize that we may need to alter things should home ice be delayed in availability, and your Board members will continue to work on alternative venues as several options have presented themselves.  For the time being, as proud members of this great organization, please be supportive of your coaches as everyone is adjusting to the situation as quickly and completely as possible.
 
Very truly yours,
 
Nick Maffeo
President, Canton Youth Hockey

Rink Update

Dear Parents and Friends of Canton Youth Hockey,

 

Many of you have heard the news, but there was a roof collapse at the Canton Metropolis Rink today.  This was a major collapse.  The most important aspect was that those in the building: the kids and coaches from Norwood Youth Hockey as well as the rink employees, got out of the building safely.  A credit to all for their quick actions in protecting the kids.  The immediate impact on Canton Youth Hockey is that Ponky will be closed for the remainder of the season.  We are forming a contingency plan for ice needs for the next several weeks as we wrap up our regular season games and playoffs.  Our leagues and neighboring programs have been reaching out to offer assistance, which is greatly appreciated.  Your understanding is appreciated as we rework schedules and utilize ice at neighboring rinks.  We will keep you posted as new information is received.

 

Very sincerely yours,

 

Nick Maffeo

President, Canton Youth Hockey

USA Hockey Rule on Helmets


USA Hockey Rule on Helmets
 
As we all know safety of our players is of the utmost importance.  Under USA Hockey regulation Rule 304(c) Protective Equipment - Enforcement Guidelines;  a note has been added relating to helmets that acknowledges the HECC sticker and the inclusion of an expiration date that de-certifies a helmet if that date has passed.  Older helmets have a date of certification (not an expiration date) Helmets have always been required to be HECC certified, but now they state that under normal wear and tear their certification is good for 6.5 years.  The rationale is that the protective qualities of the padding degrades over time.
 
Please be advised that you and/or your child should not remove the HECC sticker from their helmet as officials are looking for these stickers to be present.  There have been recent cases, not within our organization, where officials were checking for the presence of the HECC stickers on helmets, and may choose to remove a player from the ice.  Absence of a sticker does not disqualify a helmet, but does not help if a referee needs to make a determination.
 
Our District and Conference Representatives are working with SS Conference, Yankee Conference, District 3 and the Chief Referees to assure we have a mutual understanding of this ruling and the potential for our players to be disqualified from play.  Best practice moving forward is to assure the HECC sticker is in place on your child's helmet and that the expiration date has not passed.  Be sure to check your child's helmet for proper fit, and assure all components are in place (i.e. face mask, J-Clips, ear pieces, etc.).
