Midget, U19 & Goalie Only Placements

2018 – 2019 BYHA Midget, U19 and Goalie Only

Belmont Youth Hockey Association has scheduled placements for Midgets and U19 and a Goalie only session as follows.:  All placements will be held at the Watertown Rink.  Placement data will be combined with feedback from each team's coach to determine each player's placement for the 2018-19 season. BYHA encourages players to attend as many placement dates as possible. Team placement from the 2017-2018 season do not determine placements for the 2018-2019 season placements are held in accordance with our placement guidelines-

Fri Mar 16th

Mon Mar 19th

6:00-6:50 Goalies

9:00-9:50 Midget

7:00-7:50 Midgets



The Midget and U19 season is Sept-November and includes a practice and game once a week.  U19 will not have a placement session as they will have only one team.  To make a commitment to the U19 team, please contact Elena Hanley at

Goalies - All Goalies that attended their team placement session(squirts - midgets only) as a goalie should attend the session on the 16th.  While goalies were evaluated in the regular sessions, this will be a more focused session.

All players must register and pay a non-refundable $100 fee prior to attending placements.  Pinnie numbers will be assigned prior to the placement so preregistration is mandatory – your child will not be able to attend a placement session if they are not registered. To register, please click will not be allowed to attend placements if their family has any outstanding balances from the 2017-18 season or before. 

Even though Belmont does not "cut" players, it is important for players to attend placements so that BYHA can determine how many teams it can host at each age level. Additionally, players who do not attend placements will be automatically placed on the lowest level team. Placement notices will go out by the end of March this year and at that time a deposit will be required to hold your child’s spot on the team.  Based on those commitment BYHA will make commitments to the Valley and MYCGL league with how many teams we will have. If a player decides not to accept their placement, teams may be adjusted.  After deposits are due, rosters will be published.

Full-time goalies should attend placements as goalies. Part-time goalies should attend one placement session as a goalie and at least one placement session as a skater. Part-time goalies will be evaluated on their skating ability. 

For the 2018-2019 season, all players on the Squirt - Midgets and U10-U19 will be required to have their own game shirts and socks if they have not done so already.  During placements, sample shirts will be available for sizing and your child will be able to pick their number based on their year of birth.  Kids playing on the Squirts-Bantams will have a home and away shirt and the cost is $125.  U10s-U19s and Midgets will have 1 jersey and the cost is $60.  Extra socks will also be available for purchase. Checks should be made out to BYHA to order.

Game Jersey Orders

Once again this year at placement we will be taking orders for game jerseys.  All players Squirts-Midgets and U10-U19 should have their own game jerseys. BYHA provides jerseys for Mites.  You do not need to buy a new jersey if you already have one - we are keeping the same style. We do ask that this weekend while your child is playing, please look at their shirt and see if they can mae it through another season.  The jerseys are custom ordered and to keep the pricing as is, we can't place orders randomly.  We will submit one order by May 1st of this year so we can insure they are ready for September.

Jerseys are $125 for a home and away jersey and a pair of socks or $60 for 1 jersey and socks.  We will also have socks available for purchase for $20.

For all new players to BYHA or mites moving up to squirts, we will have a list of available jersey numbers at placements when we take the orders.

Attached please find the jersey order form. order form.pdf
