About Parkway Youth Hockey...

Parkway Youth Hockey is an organization that maintains and runs a hockey program open to and inclusive of all interested youth of the Parkway area. The Parkway area includes West Roxbury, Roslindale, and Jamaica Plain. The youth hockey program is to teach and develop hockey skills at all times emphasizing the importance of sportsmanship, fair play, teamwork and responsibility in the overall context of having fun .

PYH is an affiliate of Massachusetts Hockey, Inc. and USA Hockey, Inc. which is empowered to govern the sport of ice hockey in the United States by federal legislation. We are required to comply with the rules and regulations of these organizations as an affiliated organization. Players registered with PYH are in turn registered with USA Hockey. This entitles the skaters to insurance coverage. Members also receive the USA Hockey publication "American Hockey". Once a skater is registered with a program it is customary that they stay with that particular program. Coaches are also registered with USA Hockey.

PYH has its own set of By-Laws which are set out herein and by which it organizes its affairs. There is a fifteen member Board of Directors elected by the voting membership. An annual election will be conducted and Board of Directors shall serve terms of office of two years. The Board of Directors shall direct the policies and operations of the corporation. The Board will meet monthly on the second Wednesday of each month, or at such other times as meetings may be called by any officer of the corporation. The meetings of the Board of Directors are to be open to all members.

PYH conducts the majority of its program at the Bryan Skating Rink on the VFW Parkway in West Roxbury. This facility is owned by the Metropolitan District Commission (MDC). PYH is a licensee of this facility and has no control over the operation or maintenance of the facility.
