MYHA Uniform & Number Assignment Policy
(effective: 2019-2020 Season)
Beginning with the 2019-2020 travel hockey season, all MYHA players are required to purchase a package of uniform items from Pure Hockey according to the processes and protocols that follow.
NOTE: The only exception to this rule is the 2019-2020 18U Midgets. Players on that team will be required to purchase only the Orange uniform package, which will serve as their home and road uniforms during this transition year. Starting with the 2020-2021 season, players on all MYHA teams must have the full uniform package.
The MYHA Uniform Package will cost approximately $340, to be paid directly to Pure Hockey, and consist of:
- Two Custom MYHA Jerseys -- 1 Orange and 1 White – with Player's Name on Back
- One Custom MYHA Shell or Pants
- Two Pairs of Custom Socks
-- 1 Orange, 1 White
PROCESS FOR ORDERING
Over the course of a one-week period – Monday, April 22nd through Sunday, April 28th – all MYHA players must visit Pure Hockey (310 Main Street, New Rochelle) for a uniform fitting. No reservation is required. Please be sure your player brings/wears pads for a proper fitting. You will be provided written instructions from the Pure Hockey staff as to what sizes you will order for each item.
All orders must then be placed through the dedicated MYHA Online Store no later than Monday, May 6th (link to Online Store will be provided in your Registration Confirmation email). It is your responsibility to select your sizes carefully when ordering and double-check the spelling of the name for personalized jerseys. Custom gear cannot be returned, and families will be responsible for all replacement costs. Payment for the Uniform Package is due at the time of purchase.
Uniform Packages will be delivered to the home address provided during the ordering process prior to the start of the season, likely some point in mid-August.
If you have any questions about the process, please contact us at
. If you encounter any difficulties placing your order, please contact our Pure Hockey rep, Stuart Bernstein, at 774-223-2096 or
LOST OR REPLACEMENT ITEMS
All families are responsible for the cost and the process of replacing any items from their Uniform Package that are lost, damaged or outgrown. Ideally, many of the items will last multiple seasons, depending on how much your child grows in a given year. Whenever possible, we will try to arrange for younger siblings to be assigned their older sibling’s number, upon request.
JERSEY NUMBER ASSIGNMENTS
Tryouts for the 2019-2020 season end on Friday, April 12th. Within the following week, all players will be notified of their team assignment and asked to register promptly. In the registration process, you will be asked to provide six jersey numbers – ranked in order of preference – with the following stipulations:
- Two of those numbers must be between 2-29
- Four of those numbers must be between 31-98
The following jersey numbers are reserved for goalies: 1, 30, 35. Goalies can select other numbers, if available; no player may select any of the goalie-only numbers. Jersey #99 will not be made available.
Jersey numbers will be assigned based on two factors: the time your registration is completed and the availability of the number.
Registration is Completed: Your registration is considered completed when your registration fee is paid. At that point, a time stamp will be associated with your registration, which essentially is like holding a spot in line. If you complete your registration at, say, 12:01 p.m., your jersey number will be assigned before someone whose registration is completed at 12:11 p.m.
You will not be permitted to order a jersey until that initial fee is paid. If you wind up unable to order a jersey prior to the May 6th deadline, your custom jersey will be placed as part of an anticipated August order (for late signees) and will not be ready for the start of the season. In that case, you will be provided a Loaner Uniform Package for $150, which will not allow for customization (no name on the back, no number requests). When your custom Uniform Package arrives, you will return your loaner jerseys and old MYHA shell (in good condition), keep the socks, and your $150 deposit will be returned.
If you would like to request financial assistance for the 2019-2020 season, you must submit a Financial Assistance Application, available on our website: https://s3.amazonaws.com/files.leagueathletics.com/Text/Documents/13591/62623.pdf. The submission of that application will count as the completion of your registration process, and your place “in line” will be secured with the digital transmission of your application.
Any questions about registration, payment or financial aid should be directed to
Availability: Once a jersey number is assigned, that number will be off limits to players in the birth year on either side of the assigned player. For example, if a player born in 2008 is assigned jersey #10, no player born in 2007 or 2009 will be allowed to wear #10. This is ensure that players can keep their number for multiple seasons, without risking a conflict from year-to-year. A player born in 2006 or 2010, however, would be eligible to be assigned #10, as they would not be on the same team as that 2008 player (except in the case of third-year Mites or 16U players called up to 18U Midgets; a la carte conflicts will be dealt with on an individual basis). Pure Hockey will be given rosters for every team, which will contain number assignments.
In the unlikely event that all six numbers on your wish list are unavailable, we will contact you to submit additional backup choices.
Players are welcome to keep their numbers from season to season for as long as they choose. If they choose to change numbers, they may do so at any time after tryouts in any given spring, and you must notify us (
) so that we can verify whether the number they would like to switch to is available.
When players graduate out of or move on from the program, their numbers will be put back into circulation.
