Open Board Positions for 2015/16 Season:

The BYSA Hockey Board has the following open positions for the 2015/16 season.  Interested parties should submit a letter of interest to Brent Tewksbury, Chair/President,  via email at

Tournament Coordinator: Once the time(s), level(s), costs and fees of a tournament to be held have been approved by the Board, the Tournament Coordinator will then become involved by assisting and coordinating said tournament(s) if needed. These tournaments may include BYSA Invitational’s, State, Regional or National Tournaments. The Tournament Coordinator will invite and secure teams to participate in BYSA Invitational’s. The Tournament Coordinator will prepare local information packets, schedules, work with the Referee Coordinator, set up assignment duties for penalty box, clock, scorekeeper, etc. working with the Parent Representatives from the teams involved in the tournament and/or the Parent Rep. Director. The Tournament Coordinator will work with the Registrar to submit the USA Hockey Tournament application and rules to the State Registrar. This is an appointed position by the Board and is a non-voting position.


Concession Trainee/Apprentice: Our Concession Director is seeking a trainee for the 2015/16 season, with the aim for this person to take over the Concession Director duties in 2016/17.  This is not a board position, but is a great opportunity for the trainee to “learn the ropes” from a seasoned volunteer.  The candidate will be subject to Board approval for the 2015/16 season and will be presented for election to the Board for the 2016/17 season.  Letters of interest should be submitted as per the instructions above.

Concession Coverage Sign Up:

As you are aware, BYSA Hockey is a volunteer run organization.  Per Number 14. Concession Policy of the BYSA Hockey Policies and Procedures, for each child you have registered with BYSA Hockey, a parent/adult family member must work 2 shifts (public skating or figure skating) at the concession.

A link will be posted for sign ups once the schedule has been determined for the 2015/16 season.

Please note these shifts are separate from the home game and practice coverage which will be scheduled separately.  Thank you!


Coaches Safesport Info:

Please be advised that all coaches must complete the online Safesport seminar before the season begins.  Safesport is a free seminar and the link is available on the USA Hockey website or by clicking here.
