Summer Greetings Hollyhocks Families!
It is with great excitement that we send out the team announcements for the upcoming 2014/2015 Hollyhocks season!
The best news is, the Hollyhocks will have 3 teams participating, up from one team last season, as soon as possible. In addition, if there is another/additional email addresses that you would like us to include please let us know as we will be using this distribution list for all things Hollyhocks.
The U12 and U10 Major teams will once again be participating in the Middlesex Yankee Girl Conference in which they will participate in a half season of 15 games (not including playoffs). We have found that this is the best mix for our girls as most of them are also playing on full season mixed teams. The U10 minors, whose team will consist of cross ice, Mite and Squirt age girls, will be participating in a number of cross ice jamborees throughout the season and will of course be invited to all HH related events. The numbers we have with the upcoming/younger girls is a very encouraging sign, and is proven by the numbers below.
Coaches for these teams will be announced close to the commencement of the season. We are confident in those candidates who have expressed interest and we believe they, along with their assistants, will positively assist your daughters in enjoying the Hollyhock experience.
As you all know, the Hollyhocks is an equal playing time organization as it attempts to provide, promote, and grow an all-girls hockey 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 for our girls. We will continue to provide fun activities for all the girls throughout the season, which we hope will give them a closer exposure to the game and allow all age groups to interact.
If you have any questions, please let us know. For now, enjoy the summer sunshine and get excited - we will have a great season this year! Thanks to all of you that support this great program.
