We have opened U6 and U8 Mite registration. U6 Mite is for players aged 5 and 6 in 2016 and U8 Mite is for players aged 7 and 8 in 2016. We will keep our format from the previous season.
U6 Mites in 2016-2017 will be a half-ice, local league program. Practices will be once a week starting in November and twice a week from December to February, totaling about 32 practices. Weekly, cross-ice games are planned between TCYHA and Groton for about 16 games including 6 or 7 in Fitchburg.
U8 Mites in 2016-2017 will be a half-ice, local league plus full sheet games in the Westborough league. Practices will be once a week starting in October and twice a week from December to February, totaling about 38 practices. Weekly, cross-ice games are planned between TCYHA and Groton (about 16) plus full-sheet games in the Westborough league (10 games plus playoffs) starting part way through the season.
Due to positive response, we have worked to allow more players into the Mite program for the 2016-2017 season, but we ask that you register as soon as possible so that we're able to gauge how many teams we will need for the season.

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.
