The 2nd annual Shaker youth hockey night at the Shaker HS varsity game took place on Friday, February 3rd. The event was a big success as all the activities revolved around the home game vs. Cleveland Hts.
Activities included a no charge admission to any Shaker or Cleveland Hts youth hockey player wearing their respective jerseys. A pizza party for all youth players attending the game. Two 8 minute scrimmages with the Shaker Mite Blue teams taking on the Cleveland Hts Mite Blue teams. The varsity game concluded with a group photo of both varsity and Mite Blue teams.
Thank you all for helping make this a fun and entertaining event.

SYHA would like to welcome Shaker’s new youth hockey director, Michael Berg. Michael is a graduate of Shaker Hts where he played football, hockey and baseball.
His years coaching youth hockey in the CSHL and his time spent coaching at US and high school pre/post teams will bring great experience and enthusiasm to Shaker’s youth program.
In the next couple of weeks, Michael will be making the rounds to practices and games to introduce himself. If you would like to talk to him personally, please stop by the hockey office at Thornton Park.
Similar to 2015, the Shaker Youth Hockey Association (SYHA) has partnered with University Hospitals’ Sports Medicine Department to offer baseline concussion testing to all SYHA athletes at a significantly reduced rate of $30 per athlete. Normally, the cost is $250 per test. University Hospitals has greatly reduced the fee through the SYHA partnership and additional costs have been assumed by SYHA and other generous supporters of our hockey program. While the testing is NOT required to play in the SYHA program, it is a tremendous opportunity and families are encouraged to take advantage of it. PLEASE NOTE: IF YOUR CHILD COMPLETED THE BASELINE TESTING IN FALL 2015, THEN A TEST IS NOT NEEDED THIS YEAR.
University Hospitals professionals will complete face-to-face baseline concussion testing. Each baseline test will take approximately one hour to complete. University Hospitals has closed their clinic for two days on September 13th and 14th and volunteered their time to provide these one hour tests to all SYHA athletes who sign up (Mite through Bantam level). The testing will take place at the University Hospitals Main Campus. For Bantam players > 12 years old, a free computerized test is available. However, University Hospitals recommends that these older athletes complete both the face-to-face concussion testing and the computerized program. This is consistent with the approach University Hospitals takes with college and professional athletes.
SYHA players had a great time with the Shaker High School hockey players and Youth Challenge at the second annual Adapted Hockey Event at Thornton Park. It was a great experience for them to watch the high school players interact with the Youth Challenge participants and a ton of fun to scrimmage with the high school team and shoot on the HS varsity goalie. A great night for the Shaker hockey community.
