Breast Cancer Awareness Month Brings Support With Pink Tape
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and Westfield Youth Hockey Association will be joining many professional teams and companies around the country in recognition of this disease. As has been our annual tradition for many years, all teams can show their support for the cause by taping their hockey sticks with pink tape. Rolls of pink tape have been distributed to all the players this week.
According to the National Cancer Institute, about 70-80 percent of breast cancers occur in women who have no family history of breast cancer. One in eight women in the United States (between 12-13 percent) will develop invasive breast cancer over the course of her lifetime. Unfortunately, the figures in Massachusetts are even higher than the national average. But breast cancer can no longer be considered a disease experienced by women only. About 1,970 new cases of invasive breast cancer were be diagnosed in men in 2010.
All of us know someone that has been impacted by breast cancer as well as other forms of the disease. A number of our very own WYHA family members are among those. Show your support for them this month by displaying your pink colors at the rink.
Welcome to the 2016/2017 Season! As we are now in full swing I would like to ask for your help. I am the new Fundraising Coordinator for our organization, but I quickly realized that I can’t do it alone, I need your help!
I would like to form a Fundraising Committee comprising of the following:
1 Representative from each Division (Mite, Peewee, Bantam etc.)
If not 1 Representative from each Team
This would be a yearlong commitment. I would like this committee to help with the Golf Tournament and Fire & Ice Tournament.
This committee would create and run new Fundraising events aimed at helping the organization lower ice fees, support teams at tournaments and bring in much needed aid to our organization.
This is your chance to have your voice heard and support our organization in great and exciting new Fundraising events! All ideas are welcome.
Please contact me if you’re interested in joining this amazing committee:

WYHA photos have been scheduled with the photographer Bishop Photo. I should be receiving the flyers this week and will distribute to the team reps at the board meeting on the October 13th. Pictures are scheduled to occur just before teams hit the ice for practice for convenience and will take place in the party rooms. The schedule is as follows:
