CMYHA offers a variety of hockey instruction from Learn-to-Play and Cross Ice (Mites) programs, competitive Tier IV teams at the Squirt, Peewee, Bantam and Midget levels, as well as the opportunity to try out for select hockey in our Tier III program.
CMYHA aims to provide all players a unique opportunity to experience the joy of skating, the excitement of hockey and the importance of being part of a team, all under the guidance of our USA Hockey-certified coaches.
While there is a high probability that Sukee Arena will not reopen, I am writing you today to confirm that CMYHA will continue to exist. While we are struggling with schedules and ice times this year - having time to prepare for next season should make next year better.
We will be holding evaluations at the end of season of Tier III teams and will host both Tier IV and III teams next season as long as we have qualified and interested players at each level.
Our short-term plan (1-3 years) will be to continue using Colby supplemented with Kent's Hill and the Ice Vault.
We will start the process of looking beyond the three years with the goal of an additional sheet of ice locally to get us back to a regular schedule as we had in the past. We will be convening or attempting to convene all interested parties including the local schools, governments, and groups that need ice time. I will provide those details as they unfold.
CMYHA has been moving forward and adding teams including bringing back the Tier III teams, Lynx, and Midgets over the past few years. Sukee closing threw a wrench into a season that was well scheduled and exciting.
Hockey is part of the Central Maine culture and we will continue to seek ways to provide the opportunity for our youth to play and grow to love the sport. Sukee closing is difficult, but we will persist and we will emerge even stronger. In the meantime, please have patience and thank our scheduler - Martha Wentworth - as she continues to make the season work for all of us.
