This form must be completed by April 30th.
****Available numbers by birth year will be posted no later than Sunday, April 6th under Jersey tab****
Existing Players with assigned numbers: For all players that have already been assigned a number, and need to replace their jerseys, cost is $90 per set. Stop by rink to confirm sizing at one of the above times and complete the online jersey reorder form no later than April 30th. Players returning to PYH: If you had previously been assigned a number by PYH, but left the program last year, the number you were originally assigned was released. You will need to re-enter the jersey number pool. If your previous number is available, we will make every attempt to get that reassigned to you.
Note for Midget and U19’s: Available jersey numbers are based on “combined” years – 1996 & 1998, and 1997 & 1999. Note for Mites: if you are trying out for a mite travel team, we are only asking that you have the jerseys sized at this time. Please report your size to the person checking you in during tryouts. If you are placed on a Mite Travel team, you will be notified to complete the online new jersey form at the end of May. The lottery drawing for numbers will be done before the June BOD meeting.

Every year the board fields complaints on players being on the practice ice for teams they are not assigned to. Usually it is the sibling of a player on the team that is assigned to that ice time and the Parent is a coach. Keeping in mind the delicate balance between maximizing the ice time of players on a team during their assigned event time and accommodating our group of volunteer coaches, the Board is posting the PYH Non-Rostered Player On-Ice Policy.
PYH Non-Rostered Player On-Ice Policy: Only officially rostered players on a specific team are allowed on the ice during the assigned time for practice, powerskating, and skills for that team. For example, if the Bantam A and Bantam B teams have a scheduled practice at 11am then only Bantam A and Bantam B players should be on the ice from 11am to 11:50am. Any exception to this policy must have the specific approval of the Level Primary Coordinator for each and every instance. If the coach is also the Level Primary Coordinator then they must have the approval of the Level Back Up Coordinator. Possible exceptions include, but are not limited to: childcare issues for a coach, ADM suggestion for older example players, goalie or call-up players needed, and teams that will not have enough players for a proper practice (for example, this can happen around the Holidays or in April when we still have assigned sheets of ice).
The expectation is that exceptions will not be granted very often.
For off-ice practices at Athletic Republic, only rostered players are allowed at all times. Due to the nature of the sessions, they are team based only - no exceptions.
Parents: If you see a non-rostered player on the ice during a practice, please contact the Level Primary Coordinator for that team. If the situation arises where you would feel more comfortable contacting the Level Back Up Coordinator, please feel free to do so. Please note that the PYH Board is relying on the membership to report or question any instances they witness of non-rostered players participating in an event they were not scheduled for. The Coordinators:
Please read the South Shore Conference rule below. The league is very serious about the behavior of spectators on rink property.
The member towns and coach of each team are responsible for the behavior of the spectators from their town. If the spectators get unruly or abusive during a game, it is up to the discretion of the referee to stop the game and determine who is at fault. If it can be determined whom or what town is a fault, they shall forfeit the game. If it cannot be determined who is at fault or it is unsafe to continue the game, it will be stopped and the Disciplinary Committee will make a decision.
The South Shore Conference will establish a discipline committee to investigate and conduct a hearing if appropriate, concerning any major incident involving a spectator or parent. An officer of the South Shore Conference will chair the Discipline Committee. The discipline committee will be comprised of three members of the Executive Board and two Program Directors on a rotating monthly basis.
A major incident shall be defined as, but may not be limited to, the use of obscene or vulgar language, verbal; physical abuse, taunting of players, coaches, officials and throwing of objects in the viewing area, team benches, or ice surface, etc.
When a major incident on ice rink property used by the South Shore Conference involving a parent or spectator is brought to the attention of the South Shore Conference Executive Board by rink officials, ice officials (referee or time keepers), incident reports or other programs, the affected programs will be notified by the South Shore Conference President or designee.
The program(s) will then have 48 hours to respond with a recommendation for discipline to the chairperson of the Discipline Committee. The program will identify everyone involved. If the program’s action is deemed acceptable, no further action shall be taken. If the chairperson of the Discipline Committee deems the program’s recommendation unacceptable and/or inadequate, the individuals involved will immediately be suspended from all South Shore Conference activities until the incident is resolved. The Discipline Committee shall convene to investigate the incident and to hold a hearing within one week. All parties involved in the major incident shall attend the discipline hearing.
