Ice Hockey Fees and USA Hockey Registration
by posted 08/01/2014
 

As usual summer is flying by which means hockey season is right around the corner.  This is a good time to remind everyone of the first ice fee payment and USA Hockey Registration.
 
2014-2015 Ice Fees:
The first ice payment schedule for 2014-2015 is below.  The first ice payment is due into Westfield Youth Hockey by September 1, 2014.
 
Novice (Mini-Mite):     $200 per session, 3 sessions in total
Mites:                        $450
Squirts & Peewees:   $650
Bantams:                   $700
 
The second payment will be determined by October 1, 2014 and be due on January 15, 2015. You can expect the second ice payment in January to be comparable to the amount of your first payment.
 
 
USA Hockey Registration:
 
All hockey players and coaches must register online with USA Hockey before our first practice in September. This is a critical step as USA Hockey insures our players and coaches for the season.
 
Simply go to www.westfieldhockey.org and click on the USA Hockey Registration link in the upper right hand corner.  You can also go to www.usahockey.com and click on the Register Online button at the top of the page. For birth years 2006 and older the USA Hockey Fee is $40 and the Mass Hockey Fee is $8.  There is no fee for player with birth years 2005 and younger but registration is still required.
 
After you have you registration number we ask that you enter it on our webpage.  Login into your www.westfieldhockey.org account with your username and password.   Navigate to Edit My Account on left hand side of the page and select your player you want to Edit Information. You can enter the USA Hockey Registration Number at the bottom of the page. Click Submit.
 
Both the payment and USA Hockey registration must be complete in order to be allowed to skate at the first practice.

4th Annual Kevin J. Major Memorial Hockey Tournament Volunteers
by posted 07/06/2014
 
Please, consider volunteering for a great cause to support hockey, youth sports, and heart health. The Kevin J. Major Memorial Hockey Tournament needs volunteers August 8-10, 2014.
See details below:
 
Last year, the Kevin J. Major Youth Sports Foundation and the KEVS Foundation really appreciated the outpouring of support we received from the Westfield Youth Hockey Association's members and the members' families; this year, we hope to continue the relationship as we once again reach out to our ice hockey community for volunteers. With additional help, we will be able to provide more exciting activities and competitions, new auction tables, and a new snack area. I would love to see some returning as well as some new faces at the tournament this year.
 
The 4th Annual Memorial Hockey Tournament in honor of 19 year old Kevin J. Major, who passed away tragically from an unknown heart condition (hypertrophic cardiomyopathy) in 2011, is being held August 8-10 at the Amelia Park Ice Arena here in Westfield. Players compete in a series of games throughout the weekend. All around the arena, raffle prizes, silent auction items, tee shirts, competitions, and food are offered for fans' enjoyment, as well as plenty of hockey to watch! CPR and AED training also takes place during this weekend. As a nonprofit organization, all proceeds benefit scholarships for youth sports, free youth heart screenings, free CPR and AED trainings, and donations of Automatic External Defibrillators throughout the community.
 
We are in need of volunteers to man raffle, auction, competition, tee shirt, or food tables for two-hour blocks Friday Aug. 8 (4pm-11pm), Saturday Aug. 9 (7am-11pm), and Sunday Aug. 10 (7am-10pm). Also, if anyone is up for some light cooking, we need volunteers for grilling from 11am-2pm on Saturday. Community involvement throughout Westfield is key to our Foundation as we want the Tournament to flourish and continue to succeed over the years. With involvement from parents and families of Westfield Youth Hockey, this can help us give back to the community of Westfield and show WYH what we're all about, hopefully having parents get their own children involved in this fun weekend (if they aren't already!). Through your help, I was hoping you could once again spread the word about the Tournament and our need for volunteers. I am hoping we can come up with 8 volunteers/parents, if not more, that would like to participate! 
 
Volunteers will receive confirmation from me about their specific volunteering times; please, feel free to sign up for more than one two-hour shift or more than one day! :) Make sure to secure your time slot ASAP! Attached is our official Community Supporters letter, which includes additional information about our cause and how you can help. Our website can be found at www.kevinmajorfoundation.com. Please do not hesitate to contact me personally with any questions by e-mail:megan.paige.beliveau@gmail.com or cell phone: (413) 454-8519. I hope to hear back from you soon! Thank you in advance for your consideration.
 
Kind Regards,
Megan Beliveau
