Scheduling notes for the travel teams
we hope everyone is enjoying the season. We are sending out a few scheduling notes for the travel teams (i.e. Squirts, PW, Bantams, Midgets, U10, U12, U14 teams) now that soccer season is over.
Practices & Skills
No Skills session this Thursday, Nov 13th (Tonight) because of an event at Babson College. The sessions will return the following week.
Additional skills session were added at Milton Ulin rink on Tuesdays at 6 PM for all travel teams. Please check the WYH web site for details.
Most travel team practices will be:
Saturday morning at 6:40 AM, 7:40 AM at Babson, or
7:00 AM at Roche on Saturdays (yes - you need to get up early on Saturdays!), or
Noon and 1 pm at Hyde Park on Sundays
Powerskating moves to Babson College at 12:40 and 1:40 on most Saturdays. However, due of Babson College events, Powerskating will be scheduled for other times and/or rinks. Please check the WYH web site on a weekly basis.
On Dec 27 and Jan 3, Powerskating will focus on shooting, when Pro-ambitions will run their “Sniper school” program. Other such programs will be introduced during the season, so please keep your eyes open for them.
South Shore Conference. South Shore Conference will rebalance the teams in a few weeks. Once that’s done, the December schedule will be released, which often comes out at the last second. The web site will be updated as quickly as possible. A few weeks later, they will release the January schedule.
Inclement Weather. When we have inclement weather, WYH contacts the rinks and the leagues for cancelations. When a game or event is canceled, the web site will be updated as soon as possible and an email is sent to coaches.
As always, please feel free to give us constructive feedback. We are already starting to plan for next year and will be making some enhancements to the program based on the feedback we receive.
LTS is for boys and girls with little or no skating experience (ages 4-7). We offer two 10-week sessions (November to January, and January to March) and most join us for both sessions. Skaters work in small groups according to their ability. We emphasize the basic skating stride and edges, and we progress toward hockey-style games toward the end of the sessions. The goal is to have children gain confidence on the ice while developing their skating abilities in a relaxed and fun atmosphere.
Where: Babson Skating Center, 150 Great Plain Ave (route 135) in Wellesley
When: 8:40am every Saturday morning
Two 10-week sessions: November 8 to January 10 and January 17 to March 21
