Here we go Hornets!
For the remainder of the season CMYHA will have jersey Fridays to show our Hornet pride! Our Hornets should wear their game jersey's to school. Parents please remind the kids to take care of them and NOT lose them!
Please join us at The Red Barn from 4-6PM on Tuesday, February 13th for a special fundraiser to support Coach Ronny Blaisdell. Half of all proceeds during the fundraiser will be donated to our coach, friend and family member to help him with medical expenses. For those of you that are not aware, Coach Blaisdell suffered a serious head injury after a fall from a ladder. He has been at Maine Medical Center in Portland and he is now continuing to recover in a local rehab center. It will be a long process but he is doing better and in good spirits. Snow date will be February 14th from 4-6pm in the event of bad weather.
For more information and questions please contact John Robertson at president@CMYHA.org or 207-313-2588.

Central Maine Youth Hockey Family,
In an effort to improve our Hornets fitness and personal growth as athletes we have arranged a special with the Great folks at KV CrossFit. They are offering the following program for CMYHA Hornets players on the Squirt, Peewee and Bantam teams.
KV CrossFit has developed this specific program for youth athletes to work on three main areas needed for sports like hockey. The program is called KV SAQ Athlete Training (Speed/Agility/Quickness) and at this time it is offered once a week.
The max class size is 20 Hornets. CMYHA Bantams have 14 Hornets in the Tuesday evening class from 6:30-7:30. If we have the interest above the 20-person max then KV CrossFit will offer another session on a different evening, same times.
The costs are as follows,
5-9 Hornets $15/each
10+ Hornets $10/each
Our Bantams participated in the first session last Thursday and the feedback from Coach Clark was that it was great! The training was realistic and very fitting for hockey players.
If you are interested in signing up your Hornet please email me at president@CMYHA.org with your contact info and I will organize another session.
For more information on the program itself or on KV CrossFit, please contact:

Dear Hornet Families:
I would like to welcome you all to another fun and exciting youth hockey season. Central Maine Youth Hockey Association (CMYHA) is dedicated to insuring all Hornets have fun and learn about the great game of hockey. We had a successful summer skills session and the association purchased some great training aids for the kids. This equipment is available at both Colby and Kents Hill. The Coaches are ready, the schedule is being finalized and the ice is perfect!
Our player hand book is located on the main page of the web site, most of the questions we field can be answered from this handbook.
The upper age groups start this week and coaches have been in contact with their players.
We are working on U8 and Learn to Play schedules that do not seem to be updating on the web site. It will be fixed very soon.
U8 (mites and Mini Mites) begin this Friday, 10/20, 6:10pm-7:10pm at Kents Hill School and then 10/21, 8am-9am at Colby. These will be the normal practice times for these Hornets.
Learn to play will begin 11/5, 11:10am at Colby College. This will be the normal ice times for the program. James LaLiberty is working on the gear lists. We have had a great number of new Hornets sign up and it is taking time to determine who needs gear and who doesn’t. He will be in touch very soon if he hasn’t already.
As the season gets rolling and things get settled we will look at adding additional ice time for each group, bring back some skills sessions and additional sessions during the school vacations for the Hornets! Please remember that there are occasions that we will have to change ice times because of scheduling conflicts or we can arrange ice times better for the players. Please share any great Hornet photo’s you take on the facebook page. We love to see the them!
We wish everyone a super fun and safe season! Please reach out to the team parents, coaches or to the board of directors if you have any questions, concerns or ideas on how to make our programs better! Contact information is located on the web site.
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.
