Parkway Youth Hockey / P.O. Box 320024 / West Roxbury, MA 02132
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.
Tryouts for 2017-2018 PYH travel teams (listed below) will be held from March 6 - March 16, 2017 at the Roche Rink (West Roxbury). A more detailed schedule with individual team try out sessions dates and times will be posted soon after registration closes and after the number of players trying out is finalized. On ice evaluations will be conducted by Pro Ambitions, Inc. with PYH coaches and volunteers coordinating and running the on ice sessions.
All players interested in trying out for a PYH Travel Team must register through our website starting Monday February 20, 2017 through Thursday March 2, 2017. Please register as soon as possible. Late registrants (those who register after Thursday March 2, 2017) will be charged a $50 late fee. This late fee will not be applied towards tuition and is not refundable.
Travel team rosters will be posted after the conclusion of the current travel hockey season and playoffs, approximately mid-April. From the end of tryouts until rosters are posted coaches will be chosen and the travel team selection process will be taking place.
Please note, players are not guaranteed a spot of a travel team by trying out; some players may not be assigned to a travel team due to the number of players/teams at a given level in a given year. Every effort shall be made to place a player in a PYH program or team should they not be assigned to a travel team.

The cost to try out for a VHL Mite, Squirt, Peewee, Bantam, or a Middlesex Yankee Conference Girls U10, U12, or U14 travel team is $300. Players placed on a travel team and who participate on that team for the upcoming season will have all $300 applied to the tuition costs. Final tuition costs of travel teams will be determined by the PYH Board of Directors at a later date after league registration and game fees have been forwarded to PYH.
HALF SEASON MIDGETS, GIRLS U18/19, FULL SEASON MIDGETS
The cost to try out for a half season Midget or half season Girls U18/19 team is a $600 registration fee which is applied towards tuition for the upcoming season.

Players who make a team and choose not to participate on that team must send an email to email@example.com before April 30, 2017 in order to be eligible for a $500 refund. Notifications made after April 30, 2017 after will not be eligible for a refund. Late fees are not refundable.

Programs operating under Mass Hockey must only offer half-ice or cross ice games. For the past two seasons, PYH has sponsored one Mite travel team within the Valley Hockey League and has also placed teams in the Town Line League. The PYH Board has begun to explore potential options for Mite level travel teams among available programs and will pass along additional information as it becomes available. Unless otherwise determined by the PYH Board the tryout currently scheduled will be to select one Mite VHL team for the 2017-2018 season, with the remaining players playing in the Town Line League.
