Season Opener! 🏒

 

Hi Falcon Families!

Well, here we are about to kickoff our opening weekend of games. It seems like it’s been forever since we took to the ice in our blue & whites to represent our young Falcons. Clearly been a winding road to get to this point, but we are here, wherever that may be. It might not be exactly as we remember it in seasons past, but we do have a season and this year, it's all about the kids! I’m taking the glass is half full approach and err on the side of optimism during these strange times. From centers and wings requiring masks on the face offs, social distancing on the bench and one spectator per player are all the new elements we must adhere to if we desire to have normalcy back again in the near future. “I’d rather wear a mask, than not play at all.”, say the kids.

Personally, I feel terrible that not all parents, guardians, siblings, etc can come and watch their loved ones play, but we must adapt. And hopefully the better we follow guidelines, the sooner restrictions may let up a bit.  For the time being, split games or rotate periods if needed, but the kids will know we’re there to support them, regardless if we must sacrifice our own desire to cheer them on for the full 36 minutes.  Hockey parents are a rare breed, often crazy or I like to say “passionate”, so this is definitely not ideal.  Fortunately, this will pass and we will remember these moments as a small period of time that once was. I urge you all to reach out to me directly if you have any questions, concerns or issues.  Danvers Youth Hockey’s volunteers, coaches and Board of Directors have worked tirelessly to get us to where we are right now and we can’t have any individuals going off the grid and jeopardizing the reputation of the program.  I know first hand that their have already been a few local programs warned due to parents and players not following protocol. I’m absolutely confident we have an upstanding group of families, so this will not be the case with us. I fully believe in the credibility of the DYH family, thus know it won’t be an issue. The Falcons are ready to take flight by hitting the ice and playing some good old fashioned hockey in just a few days, thus I prompt you to get yourselves focused and ready to begin the onslaught of the next 7 months of what we all consider the best time of the year!


Please take this message as a small victory knowing that DYH has stayed together and is stronger than ever for the onset of the 2020-2021 season!!

Sincerely,
Pete Davekos
Falcon President

Timing is Everything! DYH August Update
Hello again, Falcon Families!
 
 
***Details are being ironed out, but a big move in the right direction as we have received notice that games will be played!  We will continue to keep you updated as we learn more!  
 
We hope you are enjoying your summer and time at home. While the weeks tick by and August begins to wind down we wait for schools to decide their reopening plan, as do we with the ongoings between MA Hockey & our Governor's office. I’ve attached a link below for all to read in detail, but essentially hockey has been dubbed a high risk sport like football, wrestling and basketball. MA Hockey, league owners and rinks have teamed up in hope of redefining hockey as a moderate risk sport with certain restrictions during play. We are in a holding pattern for game play until a decision has been made... but could change any day!
 
However, we as an organization, have met amongst our Board and our coaching staff, thus we are primed and ready to begin skating at the end of this month. We will be sending out an official practice schedule for our teams and players as we will begin on time. Practices, not games, will be the route we have to take as of right now. Though, once we are given the green light, I assume we will be overloaded with games and scrimmages for a fun-filled season per usual. Call us optimists, but we feel that because hockey is over six months long, we will endure. 
 
Please get your player registered with USA hockey and send in your confirmation number and also please pay your tuition balances which are due by 9/30 to ensure your player is allowed to take the ice. Obviously, as we’ve communicated before, we will issue credits if less games are played by the end of the full season.
 
We do appreciate your patience and understanding as we continue to navigate thru these uncertain times during the onset of our beloved hockey season!  
 
DYH Board of Directors
