14th Annual Boulter Classic House Tournament Weekend #1
The 14th Annual Boulter Classic House Tournament "B" Division took place this weekend. I just wanted to thank all of the volunteers for a job well done.
The Squirt B Division the Championship game was won by the Tri-Town Timberwolves with a 4-0 victory over the Canandaigua Knights.
The PeeWee B Division winner was the Depew Saints over the RYH Americans.
It was a very busy weekend at the rink we had the first time ever at the Boulter, a Pony Jamboree with six 10 player teams attending. The format was 3 Cross-Ice games being played simultaneously. The teams would switch opponents after a 20 minute game. Each team played four different teams during the jamboree. Between the 2nd and 3rd game there was a skills competition for all participants. After the games were completed there was a Pizza Party in the lobby for the Pony players.
Just to add to the fun of the weekend WYHA participated in USA Hockey's "Try Hockey For Free" on Saturday at 4:00PM. We had over 35 children participate in this event.
So after a long busy weekend at the rink, WYHA is going to do it all over again this weekend with the "A" Division Boulter. We have sixteen teams from all over Upstate New York to play in the second weekend. Volunteers are still needed. Please check the website and sign-up.
Volunteers needed to help at our Boulter Classic House Tournament on February 28 to March 2 and March 6 to 9.

The RXHL returns to the Webster Ice Arena this spring for its 14th season. The largest and most popular spring program in Rochester with over 400 players, the RXHL offers divisions for Ponies, Mites, Squirts, Peewees, Bantams, and a highly competitive High School/Junior level that attracts Rochester's best players.
The league runs from early April through late May, finishing before Memorial Day weekend. Unique rules apply to RXHL games including penalty shots for all penalties, and tag-up off sides which helps improve game flow. All games are scored live on Pointstreak, a powerful software which provides detailed statistics in real time. Also, look for some new tweaks in 2014 to help add more actual game time and reduce stoppages in play.
In 2014 the league will expand to two new locations including Bill Gray's Iceplex and Lakeshore Hockey Arena. These rinks have run their own spring programs in the past, so this now allows the RXHL to expand the variety of competition by playing cross-over games against RXHL teams from different locations.
We're very excited about this season and look forward to seeing everyone this spring! For more information on RXHL programs and to register, please check out www.rochesterxhl.com
