"Pause" on Youth Sports

With the recent executive order from Governor Lamont pausing team sports from 11/23/20 until 1/19/21. While SYHA is committed to the health and safety of its members, we strongly disagree with, and are deeply disappointed by, this decision, particularly as we have not seen the transmission of COVID in our program and feel youth hockey affords our children opportunities to develop intellectual, emotional, and physical abilities that will serve them for the rest of their lives.

The details of the guidelines are here: https://portal.ct.gov/DECD/Content/Coronavirus-Business-Recovery/Team-Sports-on-Pause

   Therefore all SYHA events are canceled while this Pause is effect


Youth hockey organizations within CT (and Synchronized Skating) are petitioning the governor and state officials to amend his rule regarding winter sports and ice hockey specifically. Here is how you can help:


1. Have your player write a letter to Governor Lamont stating “LET ME PLAY”

2. Parents: call Governor Lamont’s office at 860-566-4840. His office hours are Monday through Friday 9am-5pm

3. Write a letter to Governor Lamont and mail it to:


210 Capitol Ave

Hartford, CT 06106


4. Call and write your state and local representatives

Congratulations to long time SYHA Coach and Volunteer Greg Milburn who was the recipient of the 2019 Wellington Mara Award from the Mickey Lione Jr Award Fund 

The Wellington Mara Award recognizes an exemplary individual who volunteers time and talent to provide opportunities for youngsters in any city-sanctioned, nonprofits sports league in Stamford. The award includes a $2,500.00 contribution to the nonprofit organization for which the individual volunteers.  In creating a youth-coaching award, The Lione Fund continues to support and perpetuate the values that made Wellington Mara a legendary sports leader. He believed that the valuable qualities and lessons that can be learned on the field of play should, if well taught, carry over to all the all aspects of life. He taught by instruction but, more importantly, by example. The Lione Fund reinforces this ideal and these qualities in the naming of this award after Mr. Mara, who held himself to the highest standards of honor and respect for self, family, and community. 

"Greg Milburn has influenenced thousands of young people over the last 35 years by introducing them to the game of hockey at SYHA. He has been instrumental in developing first-time players through the Tiger Sharks program. By providing individual attention and encouragement, he has positively influenced our youth through sports and help fosted a strong bond with the community" The Mickey Lione Jr Fund


On behalf of SYHA, we thank you for all that you have done to instruct and inspire the young players of our community.
