Parkway Youth Hockey is an organization that maintains and runs a hockey program open to and inclusive of all interested youth of the Parkway area: i.e. West Roxbury, Roslindale, and Jamaica Plain. The program is designed to teach and develop hockey skills at all times emphasizing the importance of sportsmanship, fair play, teamwork and responsibility in the overall context of having fun. When a player is assigned to a travel team, preference is given to the Parkway Youth Hockey member.
As required by PYHL's by-laws, nominations for eight (8) positions on the Board of Directors will be accepted from members of Parkway Youth Hockey at the March 11, 2014 Board meeting scheduled for 7:00 p.m. at the Community Room of the District E Police Station (adjacent to the Holy Name rotary). The Board election shall take place at PYHL's annual meeting April 8, 2014.
The 15 members of the Board of Directors are elected by the voting members of PYHL and serve terms of two years, beginning on May 1 of the year in which such Director is elected. This year eight (8) members of the Board shall be elected. The Directors manage the operation of PYHL programs and is a volunteer position.
At the time of the election a voting member is entitled to cast a vote in favor of as many nominees as there are vacant Board seats. Those nominees receiving the highest number of votes shall be elected to the Board. In the event of a tie in the vote of the membership for election of the final member of the Board of Directors in any given year, the existing members of the Board of Directors will vote between or among the persons whose election resulted in the tied vote, and by such vote the Board of Directors will break the tie and elect the final member of the Board.
If the number of nominees is less than the number of seats to be filled by election, no election by the members will need to be held and all nominees shall be deemed elected.

Parkway Youth Hockey would like to offer a brief explanation concerning the PYH Midget teams. There are two categories of Midget teams:
-- ½ Season teams that play in the Valley Hockey League
-- Full Season team that plays in the Quincy President's League
The ½ Season VHL Midget Travel teams usually consists of two teams with rosters of up to 18 players. The travel teams generally play a ½ season from late August/early September to the end of November. At the conclusion of the VHL season in November, the ½ Season Midget season is over and many of these players will then move on to play for their respective high school teams. Games are played at rinks throughout the VHL. Tryouts are required for these teams.
The Full Season Quincy Midget team generally consists of players that wish to play for a full season (September thru March) and will not be skating for their high school teams. All games are played on Sunday mornings in Quincy. There are no try outs for this team and space is limited to 20 players.
