Learn to Play has First Scrimmages

By Amy Blain 02/18/2020, 9:00am EST

Our Learn to Play skaters already have two scrimmages under their belts thanks to Tier-1 Hockey and the Burlington Youth Hockey program. On February 2nd, the Wakefield Learn to Play players and I-Mite Grey team traveled to Burlington to play a friendly scrimmage, and on February 16th LTP and the I-Mite Red team made the trip down 128. Both events were well attended, and it was a first chance for Learn to Play skaters to play in a game against another town. Parents and players had a blast. Special thank you to Jaime Boyle and Tier-1 Hockey for setting up the events. Tier-1 Hockey runs skills and learn to skate/play programs for both Burlington and Wakefield Youth Hockey, and this is the fourth year they have hosted this type of crossover event.

Thank You!

By Amy Blain 02/11/2020, 10:32am EST

This year’s fundraiser event was a record-breaker, bringing in more than $16,000! 100% of the money raised goes right back into the program to help ensure we are providing Wakefield with a top-quality youth hockey program at an affordable rate.  This event could not be possible without the tireless efforts of our Fundraising Chair, Kara Simoneau, and the dedicated parents and family members helping to make the event come together. Special thank you to Lindsay Rocca, Christina Morris, Joanne Collins, Angel Defeo, Laurie Sillari, Jenn Baldwin, Cheryl Sartori, Lisa Van Dorpe, Kerrie Casey, Sara Eriksen, Saritin Rizzuto, Jackie Timmins and Michelle Harrington.

Wakefield Youth Skating Association

(From the 1972 WYH Supplement to the Wakefield Daily Item)

Charlie Kirk and Donald MacKay started it all back in 1946 with a handful of boys, and it has now grown to the program you see today. The children of Wakefield can thank these dedicated men for starting it all.

The Wakefield Youth Skating Association (WYSA) as it is know today was organized in 1969.
