Here is a quick update on how the Valley League will handle the last 4-6 weeks of hockey.
1) A final regular season schedule will be published next week which will give teams the last few games needed to fill out the regular season.
2) Playoff start dates will vary by division, but in general Playoffs will begin the week of 3/25. (Except perhaps Mites may start a week earlier). All teams qualify for playoffs and they are played as a single elimination style tournament.
* expect to see some 'regular season' games added to schedule shortly which will be played into mid-march.
* plan on Playoffs starting later in March and continuing into April for those teams that win/advance.
Note: All Playoffs will all be concluded prior to April school vacation week.
CYHA is has finalized our dues structure for the upcoming season.

Dues will be set at $1000 per player for those on full season teams. This is the first increase in several years - last year we were at $950.
This year we will require payment in three installments: (for one full-time player)
(1) $100 at tryouts (2) $400 by Sept 1st (3) $500 by Dec 1st.
Similar to prior seasons, there will be reduced fees for both first year mites in the instructional program, half-season teams (Midgets and U19) as well as a sibling discount and an early pay discount.
Finally, we will also continue to offer a generous scholarship program.
