BANTAM A TEAM WINS THE LABOR DAY FACE OFF CLASSIC!
BANTAM A TEAM ARE CHAMPS!
All three SCYH teams that entered the Marlborough Labor Day Face Off classic tournament this past weekend, found their way into the championship games. It was a very exciting weekend for all the teams, as they played a combined total of 21 games between them. Coach Mark Wilhelm's U18 team ended the tournament with a 5-1-1 record after a great run. Coaches Erik Roos and Rick Beckwith, were on the bench for a total of 14 games in the 4 day span with both the U16 and the Bantam A teams. The U16 team found themselves in a dogfight in the championship game and fell short in a shootout. But it was the Bantam A team who came away with the championship, after an exciting 1-0 win in the finals. The Bantams finished with a very impressive 6-0-1 record against some of the best teams in the region. The Labor Day Face Off classic attracts hundreds of teams from across the country each year to compete in the event. Congratulations to the Bantam A team for a fantastic performance and the Midget teams for competing with some of the best Tier 1 teams in youth hockey. Way to go STARS!

Southern Stars join Eastern Junior Elite Prospects League
The Southern Connecticut Youth Hockey Organization is proud to announce it has accepted the invitation to join the Eastern Junior Elite Prospects League (EJEPL) for the 2015-2016 Season. www.ejepl.com
The EJEPL is a AAA hockey league created to prepare players to become EHL and College recruits of the future. Many of the owners of the Eastern Hockey League (EHL), Metropolitan Junior Hockey League (MET) and Atlantic Youth Hockey League (AYHL) are affiliated with the EJEPL and its (45) partner organizations. Players will be exposed to the EHL’s NCAA style practices—including systems, plays, skill development, off ice training techniques and most importantly—academic guidance.
The SCYH Stars will still maintain its membership with CHC, along with its membership in the EJEPL. The Tier 2 teams will skate at the AAA level in the EJEPL. This will allow skaters the opportunity to skate in both leagues, thereby maximizing exposure.
The goal is to ultimately have teams at every level (to include girls) compete in the EJEPL. For the 2015-2016 season, we expect to enter a Boys Midget Minor and Major team, along with Squirts to Bantams. These teams will compete in both the EJEPL and CHC.
SCYH Vice President Rick Beckwith is the General Manager and Point of contact for any questions related to the EJEPL. SCYH is very excited to be part of this expanding program and the opportunities it will provide its skaters.
