2023/2024 Season Registration
Registration for current GYF players for the 2023/2024 season closes next week! Please make sure to read the directions below and fill out the correct registrations to ensure your players spot gets held correctly! Please make sure to closely verify all information is up to date and accurate or this WILL hold up your players registration!
To register, please go to https://www.griffinskids.org/registration/, and find the correct division. Please make sure to register as follows:
-Boys and Girls, 1st-12th grade, playing in the Co Ed Divisions, click on Co Ed Grades 1-12
-Girls only, 7th-12th grade, click on Girls Grades 7-12
*if your player will be playing in both girls and co-ed divisions, you will need to fill out both registrations!*
If your child(ren) have decided not to play next season, please let Nichole know asap. If you are unsure of if they will be returning- our suggestion would be to save their spot and reach out to Nichole later if you decide to drop. We do have a waitlist already for next year, so if you do not fill out a registration, you could lose your spot in the program!
Playoffs officially start this week for all divisions Adams & higher! This is the “hot time” of the year. Players are fired-up about the tournaments, coaches are talking about “winning the little battles” for the puck, playing “hard” and to “not take a shift off”. Every call or non-call by our refs are hyper-scrutinized by players, coaches and the parent/spectators. It is competition at its best and worst.
