Hello LAYHA Families
This weekend LAYHA will hold its annual Skate Swap at Fenton Chester Arena. This is a great opportunity for new or growing players to begin getting outfitted for the season with gently-used equipment at very reasonable prices.
The sale will be held Saturday, Sept. 8, from 9 a.m. to noon at Fenton Chester Arena. Families interested in selling equipment can drop their equipment off Friday at the arena between 6 and 8 p.m.
For those interested in renting equipment, a representative of Fenton Chester Arena will be present to test sizing and arrange a season-long equipment rental package.
LAYHA board members will also be on hand during the sale Saturday to answer questions about the upcoming season and offer any needed assistance with registrations, which still qualify for LAYHA’s early bird rates. The early bird rates will be in effect until Sept. 15.
This season LAYHA will offer co-ed teams in four age brackets - 8 and under, 10 and under, 12 and under and 14 and under. LAYHA also will offer the ever-popular Learn To Skate Program for beginners and a house team for the youngest players looking to give ice hockey a try.
The season starts at the end of October and will run through the end of February.
All teams typically receive two practices per week and the competitive travel teams will also have a full schedule of games and tournament entries. The Learn to Skate program will meet once per week for the first half of the season and provide players a chance to join age-appropriate teams for the second half.
LAYHA coaches and assistants are all trained and certified by USA Hockey. The association focuses on skill development and emphasizes fair and equal play.
