2019-20 RATES & FUNDRAISING

There have been a couple changes this year in an effort to streamline our registrations and make it easier to understand your total financial obligation. LAYHA has combined the registration and fundraising fees that have been separate the past few seasons.  This combined registration rate represents a 5% increase of the total financial commitment from last season due to increases in LAYHA's ice time costs, referee reimbursement and tournament fees. This is the first increase for LAYHA in several seasons.

LAYHA will continue to coordinate fundraising opportunities throughout the season in which families will have an opportunity to earn back some of their registration fees, just as in the past.

The organization is dependent upon the generosity of its participants to keep costs for everyone affordable and to maximize the players’ time on the ice. LAYHA's fundraising activities help subsidize hockey for everyone and in fact cover nearly 10 percent of LAYHA's annual budget.

Throughout the season LAYHA will organize and provide numerous fundraising activities like wreath sales, coupon promotions, and more that families can participate in to earn back some of the registration fees as well as provide further help to the organization.

Finally, LAYHA will continue to provide a multiplayer discount of $50  for every registered player after the first. This discount can only be obtained if you register all your players in the same registration session.

LAYHA is a registered non-profit organization. We are also hoping to obtain our 501(c)3 tax status to encourage future charitable donations.

The LAYHA Season

LAYHA's season typically lasts from the end of October through the end of Vermont's youth hockey tournaments, which occur mid to late February.

The Learn to Skate program will be held once per week through the middle of December. Players that wish to continue will have the opportunity to sign up, at a pro-rated cost, for the second half of the season with the age and skill-appropriate group.

For the other groups LAYHA strives to provide two practices per week (with occasional bonus ice sessions as available) and two games per weekend for the 10, 12 and 14U teams, and one - sometimes two games per weekend for the 8U Travel team. The 8U House team will have opportunities to play in several jamborees, typically in the latter half of the season.

Practices:

LAYHA has adopted USA Hockey's recommended American Development Model (ADM) for its practices and games. 

ADM encourages the best use of ice time by utilizing station-based practices to allow a large number of players to get lots of "puck touches." This also allows players of disparate skill levels to share the ice as players work their way through drills that are adapted to meet their level of play.

Games:

ADM calls for 8U games to be played in a cross ice format. This allows multiple games to occur at once and for more players to be involved at the same time. The smaller game area has been shown to improve development at the 8U level by increasing player interaction and opportunities to handle the puck and shoot.

10U and above teams play full-ice games with USA Hockey certified referees.

Tournaments:

The 8U Travel and all the older teams will play in at least one tournament during the season. For the older teams this typically is the Vermont State championship tournament for the team's age and division.
