Flyers Mentor Family – An Opportunity to Help our New Families!

SFYHA is looking for families who have participated with the Flyers and remember all the questions they had as a new Flyers family.  Where are the locker rooms? I don’t understand the practice ice schedule. How do I know which rink my player will be on?  What are the fundraisers and many more questions?  Our goal is to have seasoned hockey families available for our new families to contact.  This is not a Volunteer Dibs task – just a service to our families!  If you are interested, please email


Financial Assistance

Where a financial hardship exists, please contact the SFYHA Executive Assistant for possible arrangements.  Registration fees will be considered on an individual basis to ensure that all those who want to play have the opportunity to do so.  Each player's USA Hockey Registration Fee and fundraiser fee will not be waived.  If financial assistance for Registration Fee is approved, a code will be provided for use during the SFYHA online registration process.
