Thank you to all the parents that volunteered and donated snacks and drinks to this year's Killer B Tournament. The tournament was a huge success. A special thanks goes out to Cindy Nace, who spent most of her weekend at Thornton making sure everything ran smoothly.
The tournament was a great success for Shaker teams. We won 3 of the 4 divisions.
PeeWee 3 defeated Cleveland Heights in the PeeWee Final
Mite White 1 defeated Geauga in the Mite ADM Red Final
Mite White 2 defeated North Olmsted in the Mite ADM White Final
Squirt 4 went 2-1-1 and missed out on the finals by goal differential.
A very successful weekend for all the teams involved and many compliments were given to our program for running a quality tournament.
Congrats to the Bantam 1 team on their 6-4 victory over CSC to complete the Regular Season and Playoff sweep of Bantam AA.
Congrats to the Bantam AA, PeeWee AA and Squirt AA teams on their division championships.

From Rich Mears: As most of you have seen by now, the Shaker Youth Hockey Association has donated 2 Video Boards to the City of Shaker Heights and Thornton Park. I would like to thank current and former board members, Caleb Wyse and the City of Shaker Heights for all the hard effort that was put into get this accomplished.
These boards were paid for by generous donations from SHYA families and other friends of the program, including local businesses and extended families of our players. No City Funds were used to pay for the boards. Shaker has the best youth hockey program in Cleveland and a strong community and a great fund raising spirit are some of the main reasons for it. Our fund raisers include - the Skate-a-thon, the Killer B tournament and the annual Golf Outing. These donations along with the Pre-Registration fee ($105) allow the program to pay for tournaments, training tools (including OHA subsidy), goalie equipment and extra ice at Gilmour and Cleveland Heights.
The boards will be a great addition to the program, but come with some additional responsibilities. Please contact me if you can help in any of the following areas.
1) Graphic Design Skills - we need some creative parents to help with the design of the boards.
2) Advertising - we don't know how much to charge or who to contact, but we believe that the boards could draw some additional funds for the program
3) Content - please let use know if you would be interested in working on the upkeep of the boards. The schedule needs to be updated weekly and we can put additional Shaker Hockey pictures and videos up as available.
Once again thanks for your support of Shaker Hockey.
Rich Mears, President SYHA
