The fitting is now going to take place on Friday, May 12th from 4:30 - 7:30pm at the Tisbury School Gym to accommodate more of our program.
The fitting is for the purpose of the Bauer reps to explain the equipment, and to size our players. The fitting is NOT the time to purchase the equipment. The Bauer reps will provide you with sizes, and then you go on-line before the on-line store closes to make your purchases.
Equipment can be purchased after the on-line store closes, but only as additional groups. For example, any equipment bag purchase, must be a minimum order of 15, everything else, helmets, gloves, etc., minimum 12. The equipment is being custom colored to match our colors so they will not simply have the materials in stock. But as a group, let's say the Pee Wee A team doesn't want to order now, they could do it at a later date as a group. However, that would mean the equipment would not be here for the start of the season. The custom orders take a minimum of 90 days.
We wish to reiterate two points:
1. This is OPTIONAL. While we would like the organization to wear all the same gear, we understand we cannot force the membership to do so.
2. The prices direct through Bauer are nearly 20% less than purchasing at hockey monkey, pure hockey, or any other store whether on-line or in store. So there is a savings.
Things are changing around here! MVYH will have a brand new arena in a few short months and with the arena, MVYH is going to have a new look too!
Mark your calendars for May 13th! (10:30-1:30 Tisbury School Gym) we will have a rep from Bauer on the island to help outfit our players with all new helmets, pants, gloves, etc to go along with the new uniforms we bought last season!!
It's the hope of the MVYH board that within 2-3 years all our players have matching equipment/bags etc.. It's time to kick things up a little bit around here and get all our players looking the same!! We kindly ask that If you're going to buy your child new gear coming into the new season, please click the link below and check out the awesome gear from Bauer.
The deadline to purchase gear and have it ready for the new season is May 27th. After that there will be NO orders taken. This is to make sure the gear is ready for the start of the season! It's our hope to have this available each year to all returning and incoming players.

Yesterday our players got to spend some time with Roger Grillo from USA Hockey. It's always a treat for our players to meet a professional hockey player and D1 coach. Roger gave a talk to our program last year and everyone should take a second to watch it!

Our thoughts and prayers are with the friends and family of James Lavin and Owen Higgins, Falmouth High School and the community of Falmouth.
The Arena has started the transition to the Max Galaxy system which means for us, we can no longer display our practice schedules on our calendar. Our calendar only shows the game schedule for MVYH (both home and away) since the info is provided directly from SNEHC. If you're looking for practice times, you must visit the Arena Calendar for all updated practice times.
Registration for House Mites, Island League and Osprey's is OPEN!!

This past Tuesday, Oct 27th, MVYH had the pleasure of hosting Roger Grillo who was kind enough to speak to our players, parents and coaches. Roger is the New England Director of USA Hockey, a former D1 coach at Brown and a former player in the NHL. Below is a link to his video.
"Thank you for a wonderful time with great kids and very good coaches!! I was very impressed! Keep up the great work!" -Roger Grillo
