National Anthem

Want to skate out with the Mudbugs for the National Anthem?  We are looking for house league players to do just that before selected Saturday night regular season home games. 

Players will be introduced as they skate out with one of the Mudbug’s starters, and then stand next to them on the blue line for the National Anthem.  Full gear and black socks are required for all players, we provide the  jersey.

Contact our Volunteer Coordinator, Tammy Sutton (thsutton14@gmail.com) with any questions or to sign your child up.

 

Locker Room Guidelines

Male players will dress by the ice and, female players will dress in locker room 3/4 for practices/games.  All players will come to the rink dressed in his/her base layer for all team events.  

Properly screened volunteers will monitor the changing area and female locker room to supervise conduct during all team events while players are present and, ensure the female locker room is secured when players are on the ice.

MYHA recognizes the ideal situation of separate dressing rooms for each age group is not possible at George's Pond.  This arrangement is in-line with USA Hockey's locker room guidelines.  

Contact our President, Dave Brocato (bayoupucknut@yahoo.com) or Volunteer Coordinator, Tammy Sutton (thsutton14@gmail.com) with any questions.

SAFESPORT

Safety of our kids is paramount on and off the ice.  Through SafeSport we can help protect kids from physical, sexual, and other types of abuse to have a safe and fun environment this season.

Please take time and review USA Hockey's SafeSport Handbook https://portal.usahockey.com/forms/usah-safesport-handbook.pdf.  Then, talk to your kids and help them understand what bullying, harassment, and sexual/physical/emotional abuse is and, how serious these issues are.

To decrease the risk for abuse and misconduct;
Cell phones, laptops, IPads or mobile devices with recording capabilities such as still cameras and video cameras are prohibited in locker rooms, changing areas, and at any on-ice or off-ice sessions. This is applicable to players of all ages and parents/family members/guardians.

Again, USA Hockey's SafeSport Program is dedicated to creating a safe environment for our kids to play this great sport.

Contact our President, Dave Brocato at bayoupucknut@yahoo.com or one of our board members listed under the "About" tab, then board tab at the top of the page with any questions.
