Hello Watertown Youth Hockey families. Thank you for participating in the Watertown Youth Hockey Association tryouts. The teams are now picked and it is time to secure your skaters spot on the team. Watertown Youth Hockey will be holding its first annual commitment day event. The commitment day will be held on Saturday April 11, 2015 from 3pm to 6pm in the side parking lot near the lower entrance to Odden rink. If you are unable to attend this day, we will also have a second commitment day on Sunday April 12 from 10am to 4pm also in the side parking lot near the lower entrance to Odden.
At commitment day, all players and families Mite through Bantams, will be required to sign a Commitment Letter for the team the skater was selected for. Also required at commitment day will be a $250 deposit per skater for next season's ice fees.
The fees for the 2015-2016 season are as follows: Mite $1100, Squirt $1500, Pee Wee $1600, and Bantam $1700. Any player that does not sign a commitment letter before April 12 will risk losing their spot on the team.
Also, at commitment day, Hamden Sports will be on-site to size helmets, socks, shells and game jerseys for next season. This season players will be required to purchase two game jerseys, a red pant shell and game socks if you don't already have them. The cost for 2 game jerseys is $115, the shell is $35 and nylon game socks are $15. This year, Watertown Youth Hockey is going to recommend, not require, players to have a red helmet. Our goal is to have all players wearing red helmets by the beginning of the 2016-2017 season. To help with this transition, Watertown Youth Hockey will reimburse any family that purchases a new red hockey helmet at commitment day, half of the cost of the helmet up to a maximum of $75. This applies to this year only. At commitment day, Hamden Sports will be selling the top of the line Re-Act helmet for $150 (retails at close to $200) as well as more inexpensive alternatives.
Anyone who ordered a Watertown Hockey sweatshirt at tryouts, the sweatshirts are now in and will be given out during the Commitment Days.
Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns.
