CSYHA will be hosing a 18U Wrap team for the 2020-21 season. Given the current COVID-19 situation and restrictions from USA Hockey and NYSAHA we have been holding back announcing this opportunity but we are moving forward under the restrictions of the governing body.
Guidance from USA Hockey, NYSAHA, NY State Forward and CSYHA is still coming out but we will be aligned with other Wrap teams as they all head out for the 2020-21 season.
We hope to see you all at the rink!
Please be aware that USA Hockey, NY State and CSYHA are all looking at the current state of affairs to determine when we can get back to the rink.

As we play out of SUNY Morrisville please note that CSYHA will be working within the confines of the SUNY system. We all want to get back to the ice but we have to work within the confines of the NY state decisions. We know it is frustrating to not have access to the ice but please know NYS and CSYHA are both concerned with making sure your players/kids are safe when they turn. We are lucky to be hosted by SUNY Morrisville and the MAC (Morrisville Auxiliary Corporation) but it does come with additional requirements.
Please know that we are looking at every option for next season from a normal season, to a shortened season to everything in between. If anyone has question please contact us <click here>. We will work to get you answers but please know we are staying on top of all federal, state, college and USA hockey updates and like you want to get back to the ice.
The following is a reprint from a USA Hockey Email to Coaches. This said, after a full generation of coaching both male and female hockey players it is worth noting that there is a different, both mentally and physically. If you are coaching female athletes thinking they are just like your male athletes you are missing the boat.
Maybe your female athletes are not maturing like the boys but that is the reason for this. Chances are they are mentally seeing more before the boys, but physically maturing later. Also, maybe they are more susceptible to specific injuries at different points in their development. If you have ever wondered this, you were right to. Take a look at this guide to help your teams by knowing that there is a difference in the development of players between the sexes. Read, learn, and use it to your teams’ advantage!
