Hello BYHA -

In this season of Thanksgiving, a moment to express our gratitude for you, the BYHA community and all you do as players, parents, coaches, friends and supporters of our players and our program. While we’re disappointed that the new rink initiative did not pass, we celebrate all the work done in support of the campaign, are grateful for the contributions of many who make our program so vibrant and we want to express our resolve to keep working toward a new facility.  Here’s a link to the communication that went out to the community in case you missed it. 

And now some program updates;

  • Congratulations to the following BYHA teams 

    • AAA Midgets - won the Tier III Large State Tournament with wins over Waltham (3 - 0), Andover (7-2), Stoneham (7-1), Hyde Park (2-1) and Canton in the finals (6-1).  Congratulations to them and their coaches and to the Midget AA team for making the state tournament and to all the Midgets for a great season.

    • U19 Girls - congratulations for a successful season

    • Bantam AA2 - won the district 9 tournament and have qualified for the state tournament which will be in February or March.

  • Rink Opening & Team Pictures - The Skip Viglirolo rink is scheduled to be open on Monday (11/21) and team photos are scheduled for Monday and Tuesday.  Please check your team schedule for specific time and watch email in case there are any schedule changes. Please reach out to Chris Howe if your player cannot make his/her picture time, and he will coordinate a make-up.

  • Scorekeepers Wanted BYHA needs scorekeepers for VHL and MYCGL games for this season. Shifts occur Saturday afternoons and Sunday mornings, for two games at a time. Minimum pay is $15 per game and training will be provided. BYHA players in grade 6 or higher are eligible. Preference will be given to players in 6th and 7th grades to ensure that the group is distributed across teams and ages.  Anyone interested in keeping score should contact Liz Behn at

  • Please Save New Rink Yard Signs BYHA is willing to store rink yard signs for a while. If your sign is in usable condition, please drop it off at either 30 Bow Rd (back of driveway by garage) or 93 Country Club Lane (driveway). If it’s in bad condition, the sign itself can be recycled and the metal stand can be placed in the trash. Feel free to grab signs in your neighborhood and deliver a stack to us. 

Happy Thanksgiving to all. Look forward to seeing you in a rink soon.
