Hello BYHA - 

I hope everyone is well and having a good fall.  I wanted to share some updates for Belmont Youth Hockey

  • Mini Marauders are starting Saturday November 6th.  There are four levels offered in the program (click here for more details).  If you haven't already, please register here! And if you have neighbors or friends who might be interested, please forward them the information as we welcome new players and families.
  • BYHA Apparel orders now Order forms for BYHA apparel are available now at Champions Sporting Goods on Leonard Street in Belmont center.  Any embriodered or printed apparel (e.g. Bauer jackets, sweatshirts) need to be ordered by Saturday October 30th in order to be delivered before the holidays.  So please head down to Champions now and get your orders in.  Any orders submitted after 10/30 cannot be guaranteed for holiday and will include an additional $10 charge.  
  • Referee Shortage as many of you know, there has been a shortage of referees (see this article from Mass Hockey) which has impacted some games within our program.  Thank you to our coaches who have navigated around or through those absences and to parents for being understanding of the situation.  There are reports that attribute this issue to aggressive behavior of parents and coaches towards referees.  Let's all continue to be respectful of referees and support them as an important part of our community.  
  • Graphic Designer BYHA is looking for a volunteer graphic designer who could help with some club related needs.  Please email Read Norton at if you can help or know someone who might be willing to.

Thanks to everyone for your support and, as always, if there are questions, please reach out to me or Areti (
