LBYH's annual photography week is scheduled NEXT WEEK for travel & girls teams from 10/12/14 - 10/16/14. The schedule with each team's session is attached.
A few notes about this year's pictures:
~ For pictures to run smoothly, all players should be fully dressed (don't forget the socks!) in their uniform at your team's session time. Coaches/team should determine what color jersey you will wear prior to your session
~ Siblings may be photographed together. Just be sure siblings are available for their own team photos.
~ The photographer will take multiple shots/poses of each player. Note on the form, you have the option to choose which shot will be used to fulfill your order. If you choose this option, you will have 2 weeks from the release of the proofs to view and select your shots. If you have not made your selection after 2 weeks, the photographer will make the selection for you.
~ Please be sure that emails from the address "

Welcome LBYH Players and Parents to the 2015/2016 hockey season!
For those of you new to the LBYH, welcome to the family! For those of you returning, thank you for your commitment to the program!
I know what you are thinking, how can we be talking about hockey in the summer? Well the start of the season is just around the corner and, thanks to the effort of our tireless volunteers, we are not only ready, but excited to kick the season off!
This year we will be fielding 21 girls and travel teams. Our recent success has as its foundation one of the strongest in-house programs in the state, run by Hank Manz. This has truly been a great way for players to be introduced to hockey, and has proven to be a great farm system for the girls and travel programs. Make sure you tell all your friends! Registration is now open.
The program’s success has also been built on the belief that every player should be able to learn the great game of hockey in a safe, fun, and appropriately challenging environment. With this in mind we are very pleased to announce the return of Max Gratchev as a skills instructor for LBYH. Anyone who has witnessed a Max skills session knows that they are a fast paced, fun-filled environment in which the kids can learn.
We would also like to welcome Curt Colarullo as skills coordinator for our Bantam and Midget level players. Curt grew up in Lexington and has long been part of LBYH. As Coach of the Concord Carlisle High School team, he brings with him the knowledge of the skill sets needed for those players entering the more physically competitive stages of hockey.
For the third year in a row we are excited to announce our continued partnership with STOP IT for goaltending training. (Stop It Goal Tending) The STOP IT goalie organization and LBYH will provide three goalie skill sessions throughout the year for our goalie community.
As I mentioned earlier, LBYH is run by volunteers. Without them, our great program would not exist. With that in mind, I would like to thank our outgoing board members for their invaluable expertise and efforts. Phil Cormier was a former LBYH President among other roles and an essential part of the board for the past several years who continued to participate on the board even when he no longer had players in the program. Pat Hunt, a native of Lexington and multiple championship-winning in-house coach, ran the Hayden Hockey clinic for a number of years among his many other contributions. Mark Khozozian, our outgoing Coaching Coordinator, continues to be an outstanding coach in our organization. His hockey expertise and experience and, more important, his ability to connect with and inspire his players and other coaches, have helped elevate the competitive level of LBYH hockey.
I would like to send a special thank you to Joe Palomba. As the outgoing President, Joe has positioned LBYH as one of the best run programs in the state. A native of Arlington, long known as a hockey powerhouse, Joe injected his passion for the game into all aspects of LBYH. Additionally his wife Kris was the driving force in the success of our Lake Placid Tournaments. We wish Joe, Kris, Julia and Joey well in their new home in Florida.
While we will miss the departing board members, we would whole heartedly like to welcome those that are new to the board!
Lisa Dinsmore – Photography Coordinator, Lake Placid Coordinator
Steven Mead – Coaching Coordinator
Joseph Dolcimascolo – Skills Coordinator, Sponsorship Coordinator
Ron Tashjian – Assistant Registrar
Charlie Minasian – Girls Coordinator
It is the continued addition of volunteers that makes this program the success that it is. LBYH is always looking for volunteers with expertise in various fields, both on and off ice. Please do not be shy in asking if there is an opportunity for you to support the program. Contrary to popular belief, you do not need to be an expert in hockey in order to help out. There are many roles that you can play.
As LBYH President, I have one ask of you, remember that we are teaching our children much more than just the game of hockey. Sportsmanship, teamwork, volunteerism, achieving results through effort, these are just a few of the things that come to mind. How we as parents support these endeavors with our players and their coaches, will truly determine the success of our program. Leading by example is the best thing we can do as parents!
Thank you for your commitment to LBYH and to your children!
