The Marblehead Hollyhocks is a supplemental girls-only youth hockey program that participates in the Middlesex Yankee Girls Hockey League (MYCGL) with roughly 15 games for the U10 and U12 levels, as well as one practice a month. Additionally, there is a U8 practice-only squad that is free for all U8 girls who are registered in MYHA. The Hollyhocks is an equal playing time organization as it attempts to provie, promote,and grow an all-girlshockey experience within MYHA. The program will strive to provide a fun and competitive program designed to develop hockey skills, sportsmanship, and team play to foster long term athletic and social development.
We also enjoy off-ice activities and aim to provide our players with a fun and competitive experience, while giving them a sense of companionship with girls who share the love of this great sport!
We are looking for a few more players from Marblehead and surrounding areas to join our ranks, and welcome anyone ages (5-12) to reach out to Karen Wales and Mike Piersol at
Hollyhock Game And Attendance Policy
To promote girls hockey and ensure predictable and regular participation in the Hollyhock program, it is the policy of MYHA to have a girl player play in a Hollyhock game whenever there is a conflict between the Hollyhock game and a MYHA mixed team game or practice. This will ensure that the Hollyhocks have regular game participation and make the games more meaningful and competitive. MYHA mixed teams are expected to coordinate with the Hollyhocks reasonably in advance of any conflict so that the MHYA mixed teams can call up players from other teams as necessary. The Hollyhocks will work with the Middlesex Yankee Girls Hockey Conference to minimize game conflicts. When there are conflicts between Hollyhock practices and MYHA mixed team practices, the Hollyhock player is free to select which practice to attend. MYHA expects all coaches, parents, and players to honor this policy, and to make exceptions to this policy only in those rare instances in which a mixed team will be significant disadvantaged because of an insufficient number of players if a Hollyhock player does not attend. MYHA will at all times strive the balance the goals of this policy with the needs of the various MYHA mixed teams, including the needs of the MYHA mixed teams to have sufficient number of players. This policy was approved unanimously by the MYHA Board of Directors.
Program Cost: U10 and U12 Tution is $400
