Kent Youth Hockey Association (“KYHA”) is committed to providing high-quality ice hockey programs for the young people of Northeast Ohio in an environment that is open to youths at all levels of interest, ability and economic standing.
Kent Youth Hockey assists all participants in reaching their athletic potential by teaching skills that enhance the performance and enjoyment of ice hockey, while also developing lifetime skills of goal setting, commitment, self-discipline, determination, teamwork and sportsmanship.
We hope all is well with you, your family, and your friends. We trust that you are all staying safe and practicing good hygiene.
To all Board, Coaches, Team Managers, and Parents that helped volunteer. Thank you so much for everything you did to help provide a great hockey experience for our children.
This is the last notice that will go out to our families from the 2019-2020 hockey season as we decommission our current website running at kentcyclones.com. In the coming days, the new website at cyclonehockey.org will become our one and only. Both links will eventually take you to only the new site. The old apps for league athletics, and SI play will go away, and be replaced by SportsEngine, and other changes will continue to occur to improve everyone's experiences.
Coaches and Team Managers: We will lose all messaging capabilities from the old site. If you need to reach out to anyone due to cancellation of team parties, etc. please let me know and we may still help you contact them.
Two weeks from now we had all hoped to be getting back together for tryouts. We all know that is not the case, nor do we know yet when that may be. Future messages will go out through the new website to those that are registered. If you are not registered yet and want to receive those messages, please do so now.
Some of your children will be graduating, some will move away, and some just move on for other experiences before our next season gets underway this fall. We hope that we left all of you with positive learning experiences, lasting memories, and friendships that will be with you forever.
Brandon Grote - Kent Cyclones President
We have been looking to find a potential relocation for future events after the temporary closure of the KSU ice rink earlier this week. While we have secured these sites, we have determined that it would be inappropriate in the current environment to continue these events as scheduled. The safety of our families is our top priority.
Monday-Tuesday 3v3, cancelled: Full refunds will be offered to everyone that was paid in full. You may get this in the form of a check, or the form of a credit on your account. Please contact our Treasurer, Chris Roborecki, at email@example.com
Tryouts postponed indefinitely: Until we receive appropriate guidance from health authorities that events such as this are appropriate to reschedule, tryouts will remain on hold. Tryout registration will remain open, and we will update the information to disclose that they will be held at a date, time, and location to be determined in the future.
Please do not hesitate to email any questions you may have while we prepare future updates for you.
We had an amazing season together! Thank you to everyone that helped make it great!
Brandon Grote, Kent Cyclones President
