Franklin Youth Hockey Association –

Benefits of Town Hockey

              We are uniquely fortunate to live in a part of the country where there is an abundance of hockey rinks and town hockey teams within reasonable travel distances.  FYHA believes that there are many benefits in choosing town hockey and below are just a few that we suggest should be considered when deciding upon which athletic path to take:

 

+ Reasonable cost

+ Reasonable travel allowing for hockey-life balance (all travel is within the South Shore of Boston)

+ Less travel allows more time for other sports – developing a more well-rounded athlete

+ Allows players to play with school friends

+ Grow as a hockey player with your friends

+ Consistent players from year to year

+ Sense of community for both players and parents from the consistent player membership

+ Ability to carpool to practices and games as we all live in town

+ Smaller rosters, more puck touches

+ Ability to play multiple positions, creating a versatile hockey player

+ USA Hockey certified coaches

+ Focus on skill and player development

+ Competitive youth play

 

While each family needs to choose the path that best suits their situation and desired outcome, Franklin Youth Hockey soundly believes in and endorses the benefits of playing town hockey. So, tape up that stick, lace up those skates and come play with us!
