The objective of Peabody Youth Hockey is to provide to the youth of Peabody the opportunity to learn and play the sport of ice hockey in a safe and controlled environment consistent with the existing USA and MASS Hockey Guidelines.
Please see the rosters for the 2017-2018 season below. If you do not find your child’s name or your child is no longer playing PYH please let me know as soon as possible. Some players were placed on lower-age grouped teams to help them with their development as hockey players. It is very important that your child plays with kids of similar ability so that he/she can reach their full potential. Players with a ** next to their name will need to obtain a waiver to play down an age-group.
How to obtain a waiver: All paperwork must be submitted to me by August 10

Write brief letter addressed to Dr. Alan Ashare explaining that your child should play down because they are not ready for their current age-level of competition. It can be 2 or 3 lines saying that your child is new to hockey and you feel they would be benefit more from playing down one season with players of similar abilities.
