FYHA received a grant this year from the Coyotes Foundation to provide coaching classes in Flagstaff to all our our volunteer coaches.
On Tuesday November 17th, Randy Exelby will be in Flagstaff to do an on-ice Clinic with all of our FYHA goalies - travel, club and High school.
6:35pm-7:50pm On-ice (Goalies and coaches) Randy will be working with our goalies but more importantly he will be showing the coaches the most important things that should be taught to our goalies at each level.
8:00pm-8:30pm FYHA coaches discussion and Q&A in the party room.
* During this session we want to limit it to 1 coach per team on the ice. Asst coaches can watch from the bench. Randy will make sure the coaches on the bench can see and hear everything that is being said. More than anything this is a safety issue as we will have shooters from NAU working with the kids and if we have too many people on the ice someone will get hit with a puck!
Contact Nick Karastamantis (firstname.lastname@example.org or 480-221-5130) with any questions.
FYHA Alumni Player, Reid Miller, was drafted by the Saskatoon Blades during the 2015 WHL Bantam Draft in Calgary. Reid played for FYHA during his Mite, Squirt and Peewee years. Congratulations Reid!
The Peewees traveled to Anaheim to play in the Spring on Ice Tournament this past Easter weekend. The team went 6-0 and captured the Peewee A banner with a 2-1 win over the Jr. Sun Devils from Tempe! The Peewees beat 4 teams from California along the way. Chris Wise led the way with 8 goals/4 assists, Timmy Treadway had 8 goals/1 assist and Jacob Sansone (3 goals/3 assists) and Mathias Tye (3 goals/2 assists) weren't far behind! The Championship Game was about to go to overtime, when Preston Gibbs got an assist from Ben Smith and fired the puck to score with 10 seconds left in regulation to cap the comeback! Preston won MVP honors for the Championship Game bringing home a new stick! And in goal, Peyton Brendel went 6-0 with a 1-0 shut out win over the San Diego Oilers in the semi-final, and stopped 24 of 25 shots in the Championship! Congrats to all the boys!
FYHA Squirt Travel are Squirt B Champs!
The Flagstaff Northstars Squirt Travel team won the Squirt B championship at the Presidents' Day Invitational in Phoenix last weekend! The path to the title included two thrilling final games - a late 3rd period goal to notch a 1-0 victory over the Las Vegas Wranglers in the semifinals and a 3-2 overtime win against the San Diego Junior Gulls in the finals. Congrats to the players, coaches and parents on a great and exciting weekend of hockey! And to all FYHA teams on representing Flagstaff hockey with pride!
