The SYHI Board of Directors met on Thursday, February 12, 2015 and set forth the following plan for the 2015-16 Board of Directors Elections:
1st- SYHI Board has set the maximum number of board slots for the 2015-16 season at 20. We currently have 13 members, one of which is required to be re-elected or roll of from the board. Our anticipated need is therefore 8 new members. As it stands now, all other board members are returning for next season. 5 of these members will have to stand for re-election or roll off after the 2015-16 season with 7 members having to stand for re-election or roll off after the 2016-17 season.
2nd- In lieu of establishing a Nomination Committee, all board members will effort to recruit new members and make themselves available to discuss board service with any interested party.
Individuals interested in serving as a board member can access an application at:
3rd – Our interpretation of the bylaws is that the first order of action for each new board is to elect officers and appoint members to leadership roles. All current members holding officer and leadership positions will continue to meet the needs of their respective roles until the 1st board meeting of the 2015-16 season where individuals will be elected to serve.
It should be noted that all returning members are willing to serve in their same roles and/or assume new leadership roles. With that said, if a member is interested in joining the board (via election by the membership) and then, be nominated by a fellow board member, or nominating themselves for an officer's role (via election by the board), that is allowed, as all board roles need to be voted on annually.
4th- Dates of the election will be: March 8-14, 2015. The election will be conducted electronically via our website. Each family will be provided a unique user number to use when voting (number can only be used once). Further details on the election will be posted and distributed via email at a later date.

The 8-week winter session of Saratoga Youth Hockey's Learn to Skate/Learn to Play(LTS/LTP) program will begin on Saturday, January 10th.
The cost of the program is $80.
The objective of LTS/LTP is to allow children to try out ice skating and learn fundamental skating skills in preparation for the Mite Program. The LTS/LTP participants are beginning skaters that have had little or no prior skating or playing experience. Most of these skaters are under 8 years old. The LTP program runs concurrently with the LTS program.
Required equipment is hockey helmet with cage, hockey gloves, elbow pads, shin guards/knee pads and hockey skates; hockey pants and shoulder pads are recommended. Instruction is provided by volunteers, usually coaches and asst. coaches but also older youth hockey players.
Players attend once a week over the course of 8 weeks. Participants are divided into two or more groups based on ability. The ice is then divided into stations, and age-appropriate drills taken from the 6U ADM will be implemented so that all participants are given instruction in the fundamentals of skating through skill building drills and games.
The more advanced participants in the 8 week program will be introduced to puck handling and passing as well as some cross-ice/small area games in the later sessions.
All players must be registered with USA Hockey. Our registration page direct you to the USA Hockey site to secure your child's USA Hockey Number. The USA Hockey registration fee is waived for children 6 and under (2008 birth year).
