Rochester Youth Hockey and Rochester Junior Americans Continue Relationship
Rochester Youth Hockey (RYH) and the Rochester Junior Americans of the United States Premier Hockey League (USPHL) are please to announce they have extended their partnership to offer 16U and 18U USPHL teams for the 2015-16 season and beyond. Both teams will continue as full season teams and compete in the USPHL and will be tournament bound and compete for the NYSAHA State Championships.
RYH and the Junior Americans are forming a long-term agreement to strengthen our relation and support to our 16U and 18U teams and beyond. RYH is committed to the development model that USPHL program offers which links the 16U, 18U, and Junior teams to maximize player development in Rochester for our elite players. RYH originally joined forces with the Junior Americans with the end goal of creating the best option for young aspiring hockey players to obtain their goal of becoming a collegiate or professional hockey player. Last year alone, the Junior Americans has 12 collegiate commitments.
For additional information, please attend the RYH Town Hall meeting on February 23 starting at 7:00 PM at the Double Tree Hotel.
Last week a Rochester Youth Hockey family lost their home in Perinton due to a fire. Jacob Dillon a member of the Rochester Youth Hockey 15U AAA team and his mother Kim are encouraged by all the support shown in these first few days after the tragedy which unfortunately claimed the life of their family dog. Jacob's team at RYH and Fairport JV is rallying around them but more support from the extended family of our organization is encouraged. Donations to help the family recuperate after this loss are being collected by the organization.
