The Wellesley Youth Hockey Board of Directors wishes to thank coaches, players, and parents for their continued partnership over the course of the 2020-21 season. Much like the game of hockey there have been shifts in momentum that we have all head to weather and yet we as a program we have remained committed to the philosophy of play hard until the final buzzer sounds. Now is the time to double down on the protocol and procedures that have helped to put this season on solid skates. With the warmer weather and the end of the season in sight it is certainly human to relax, however, like any drill, we benefit from striding beyond the line as opposed to gliding through. Please know that we continue to work with and follow the guidelines provided by USA Hockey and the Mass Hockey as well as the most recent Massachusetts state guidance.
