Dear Hockey Community,
We’re excited to come together as a community and kick off the Newton Youth Hockey 2016-2017 season on Friday, September 23 at 6PM at the American Legion Post 440, in Newton. Along with a delicious dinner from Blue Ribbon BBQ, we’re having our first ever SILENT AUCTION! We hope that you will make time to join us, and we’re hopeful you will consider donating to the auction.
As a nonprofit and all volunteer run organization, which has served the youth of Newton and surrounding towns for many years, we strive to offer a comprehensive hockey program. Every year, more than 500 youth, ages 4 to 17 participate in Newton Youth Hockey programming, including Learn to Skate, Learn to Play, Girls programs, and the Travel teams—Mites, Squirts, Peewees, Bantams, and Midgets.
In order to continue to provide our children with a great hockey experience and expand our program offerings, we are asking individuals and businesses for their support.
We kindly ask you to consider donating items for the silent auction. Suggested silent auction items include:
●Vacation items (such as a house rental or airfare)
●Event tickets (pro or collegiate sports, theater tickets, concert tickets)
●Experiences, such as golf outing or access to a celebrity event
●Your own professional services --- for example, career coaching, personal fitness training, dog sitting/grooming, catering, spa, photography, etc.
The NYH Board is currently reaching out to area merchants, including restaurants, retailers and hotels seeking donations of goods, gift certificates and other services. If you’re interested in helping us seek items for the silent auction, please reach out to Kathryn M. Quirk (
or at 617.875.6003), who is in charge of fundraising and communications.
Thank you in advance for your continued support of Newton Youth Hockey.
Newton Youth Hockey did not end up having enough interest to support a Bantam No-Check team this season. The Valley Hockey League is still planning to provide an opportunity for interested Bantams to play No-Check.
A note from USA Hockey Referee-In-Chief for MA. Leagues are always in need of good referees. It's a great way to be involved with the game, and the pay is pretty good. Registration begins today!

[FWD: Recruiting Ice Hockey Officials]
Wed, 27 Jul 2016 11:35:29 -0700
I am Kevin Donovan the Referee-In-Chief for USA hockey for the State of MA.
I am reaching out to all the leagues and organizations in MA, if you are not the right person can you please forward it to that person.
As we know the game of ice hockey has grown over the years and continues to grow. We on the officiating side of the game need to also grow to keep up with the growth and now that we use more of the 3 and 4 person officiating crews at the higher levels are in need of more officials.
So I am reaching out to you to help us grow the officiating program. To become an official you need to be 14 years old, attend a usa hockey officials seminar, take the open book test and complete the online modules.
I have attached a flyer that you can email to the members in your leagues to help us recruit. If you have a database of players that have played in past years and have hit the age limits we would like it if you can also send it to them as we need officials in their 20's. We also need more female official as the girls and women's game has some of the largest growth.
Below you will also find a poster that we will be putting up in all the rinks in the next week. You can also use this to put on your websites the files is big so you can grab it off the google drive.
