Registration Now Open Squirt, Peewee, Bantam 2016-2017
It's already that time again...
Registration is now open for Squirt, Peewee & Bantam for the 2016-2017 season. Due to the rising costs of ice, we have had to apply a modest increase in tuition. Total tuition for 2016-2017 is $1675. A $200 deposit (including a $75 non-refundable Player Evaluation fee and a $125 refundable, tuition deposit) is due at the time of registration. Please register online at our website.
We hope to have the complete Player Evaluation Schedule online later this week. We are also in process of finalizing the budget for our Midget division and expect to have that open for registration soon as well.
We are pleased to inform you that the L.U.K. Crisis Center has announced the 5th Annual Shelley L'Ecuyer Memorial Scholarship. Shelley was devoted to her family, advocated for the youth of Central MA and was passionate about ice hockey. The Shelley L'Ecuyer Memorial Scholarship will reflect those values that Shelley demonstrated throughout her life.
Two $250.00 scholarships are available to youth whose families are having difficulty or are unable to afford the season registration fee to play hockey or who cannot afford skates or other equipment. The scholarships will be presented during the Fitchburg Women's Hockey League game to be held in March.
The eligibility criteria and application process are as follows:
Youth 11 through 13 years of age currently enrolled with Twin City Youth Hockey.
An expression, by the youth, of "What Playing Hockey Means to Me". This can be an essay, drawing, poem, song, or something else that the youth uses to express himself/herself.
Applications should be emailed to
. The Scholarship Committee of Twin City Youth Hockey will make a final recommendation to LUK in support of the chosen nominees.
Applications should be completed by February 19.
We are excited about honoring Shelley L'Ecuyer's memory in this way and hope that you will join us and are looking forward to your submissions.

New Members -- Import your schedule into Google Calendar
Many of you already are doing so, but for those who have not yet, here is a video explaining how you can add your team's schedule directly into your Google Calendar so that it is available on your Android smart phone or computer.
Welcome new members. There have been many questions recently on accessing schedules for your team, particularly from new players in either No Player Left Behind, Learn to Skate, and House Hockey. Accessing your schedule is easy.
To do so, use the Team menu above in the horizontal navigation menu. From there, choose select Choose a Team, your division, and then your team. For example, U11 No Player Left behind would be Team -> No Player Left Behind -> U11 NPLB.
You will also begin to receive email notifications approximately two days before each scheduled practice or game. The email will let you know the date, time, and rink that you will be at. For those that are new, there are two rinks at the Civic Center, Gaetz and Landry. The Gaetz is the rink closest to the street. Landry is next to the Gaetz and is separated by the parking lot.
