    2016 Skate a Thon

    SYHA Families-

    As you know, the SYHA Skate-a-Thon is Sunday, October 30th with registration beginning at 4pm (Pws 4:15, Squirts 4:30, Mites 4:45). We hope to see ALL SYHA players and families… it is a great day and special to have all players of all ages on the ice together.

    We have changed the timeline and format slightly… the schedule, incentives, bake sale and raffle are outlined in the attached flyer. We are continuing the 100 Club with a fun new design this year and have added the Hat Trick Club for those who raise over $300. In addition, we will have a 50/50 raffle and a sports-themed raffle for the players, including fun experiences with SHHS hockey, the Monsters, Indians and more! We are also planning to take an SYHA group photo and of course we will end the night with the popular Coaches vs. Bantam game!

    Scott Camp will also be attending a practice for each team to hand out the pledge sheets and a script to help our players fundraise. The Skate-a-Thon is not only a fun day for our players, but it is our primary fundraiser for SYHA and is vital to the day-to-day operations of our program and the development of our children. We really encourage you to use this an a chance to teach our kids the lifelong skill of fundraising and have them reach out to family and friends to support their involvement.

    The flyer, as well as pledge sheet and script will also be on the home page of the website.

    Last, thanks to Coach Matt Bartley and the SHHS players… they will be on ice with our players running the hockey portion of the event. BUT, we need volunteers to help with the rest! Please click here  and sign up for a shift.

    Thank you in advance for your support of SYHA and our players.


    Sled Hockey-Thank You

    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.

    New and returning Shaker Youth Hockey parents: 

    The Shaker Youth Hockey Association (SYHA) consists of volunteer board members that work closely with Thornton Park and Shaker youth hockey to ensure the best possible hockey experience for your youth player. 

    Two fees are collected each year in order to play hockey for Shaker.

    #1.  A $125.00 per family (not player) fee payable to SYHA.  See on line payment option below. Payment is due before the start of the season.

    #2. A city of Shaker/Thornton Park fee.  The city will be sending out statements in the near future with instructions for payment. 

    Thank you all and enjoy the upcoming hockey season.


    2016 Shaker Youth Hockey Concussion Baseline Testing

    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.
