Knights Corner - 10/16/17 Update
Here's the latest at South Windsor Youth Hockey.
1.  This Past Weekend
Bantam A started the weekend on Friday night in Massachusetts playing WTM (Wilbraham Twin Meadows) and starting off the weekend with a win, defeating them 5-1.  They were led by Zach Jarvis with a Hat Trick and Dominic Russo with a Playmaker.  They also finished the weekend with a shutout victory on Sunday, 8-0, against Southeastern.  The team was led by Sean O'Connor with a Hat Trick and the shutout effort by goalie Cam Begley.  Way to go!!!
Bantam A1 went to Stamford on Saturday night and won 10-4 behind a Zach Jarvis Hat Trick.  Great job!!!
Pee Wee A defeated the Yale A team, 10-1, on Saturday and then defeated the Yale AA team, 4-2, on Sunday.  Awesome job and nicely done!
Pee Wee B beat Pawling on Sunday, 10-4, led by a Tori Jarvis Hat Trick.  Well done!
Squirt B played Central on Saturday and won 3-2.    Nice!!!
Mite A had a busy weekend. On Saturday the Knights faced off against Enfield. It was a game full of hard play and back and forth action. Tyler King earned the Hard Hat award for his never quit attitude and monster plays. Rocco DiSalvatore was selected as the hot stick for his solid defensive play and sharpshooting goals. On Sunday the Knights traveled to Bolton to face ECHO. It was a short bench but that didn’t slow the team down. South Windsor jumped out early and never looked back. Bradley Jennes earned the Hard Hat award for gritty play on both ends of the ice. Carter Cornish earn the hot stick for his multiple-goal game.  See website for photos. Great weekend!
2.  Skills Night
A reminder that this week, Tuesday at 5:10, it's Bantam Skating Skills with Jon DiSalvatore.
3.  Sportsmanship
Now that the season is underway and we're all watching games and our children with some passion, a friendly reminder that parents, coaches and players from South Windsor Youth Hockey should exhibit a high level of sportsmanship and make every effort to refrain from yelling at the referees.  Sometimes they make a good call that we just see differently, other times they make a lousy call.  Either way, South Windsor Youth Hockey Association is looking for its players, coaches and parents to exhibit a high level of sportsmanship and refrain from negativity directed at the referees.
4.  LiveBarn
Remember that LiveBarn at South Windsor Arena is now live.  Remember that the LiveBarn system picks up and records what you say in the stands during practices and games.  Keep that in mind.
5.  Equipment
For the newer families to youth hockey, and to the extent it helps the veterans, here is a short video from USA Hockey about the hockey equipment and how to put it on properly.
6.  Quote of the Week
"I can accept failure, everyone fails at something.  But I can't accept not trying."  -- Michael Jordan
Hope everyone has another great week of hockey.
---Michael Pollack

Learn to Play
Registration for the Advanced Learn to Play Program formally known as In House II and Learn to Play formally Inhouse I is now opened as well as our new program Learn to Play for ages 9 and up.
Below are some helpful links:


Learn to Play is the introduction to hockey basics.  Children who have completed the four week Learn to Skate program are now ready for the Learn to Play program where the focus is on fun and learning skating as well as stick use, puck control and basic game instruction.  


Learn to Play 9 & Up is our Learn to Play program for children 9 years old and older.  This is so that the older kids, who are usually bigger, are learning and competing with kids at a similar size and stage of development.


Advanced Learn to Play is the continuation of the Learn to Play Program, usually for players who have completed the Learn to Play program.  For Advanced Learn to Play, the emphasis is on skating and skill development with small area games in a fun environment

If you have any questions please contact Coach - Mike King or President - Mike Pollack
