Although success at the team and individual level is important, SYHA places significant emphasis the development of student-athletes of all levels of ability. SYHA promotes long-term athlete and child development by providing on-ice and off-ice training opportunities that allow each player to maximize his or her potential in a competitive learning environment, while providing positive lessons that allow them to excel in life. We believe very strongly in citizenship, sense of community and sportsmanship. SYHA is committed to helping boys and girls make big strides on and off the ice as athletes, students and members of our community. See detailed information and program highlights about Shaker Youth Hockey in the pdf file below.
Please use the line below to register and pay this season's SYHA Fee. This fee is separate from the city recreation fee and is used to help finance the costs associated with supporting the youth hockey program. The fee is $125 per family, so please only pay once for your oldest child in the program. Younger siblings will be included in this one time payment. Thank you.
Similar to prior seasons, 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 2017, 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. This year University Hospital’s is bringing the testing to Shaker Heights from 5 – 8 PM at their location at 3605 Warrensville Center Road. The available dates for players under 12 years old is August 28, 29, and 30th. For Bantam players > 12 years old, a free computerized test is available registration for these athletes will be available the first week of September times to be determined. If your athlete is over 12 years old, please email me instead of scheduling a time through the Sign-up genius. We will make separate arrangements with UH to have this test completed.
Please complete choose a time to schedule your child through the Sign-Up Genius link below. In addition, please provide payment and registration details through the payment and registration link also provided below.
The Shaker Youth Hockey Association is busy planning for next season. Each year we look for parents who can help us support the organization through volunteering and contributing of their time and talent. Not only is volunteering fun and builds morale, but it fosters relationships with families, coaches and players. SYHA is about building community.
We are seeking individuals who can help with skills in marketing/communications, social media, scheduling, fundraising or simply helping with an event or two.
The opportunities are endless and we are grateful for any time you can contribute.
