Patrick Deegan Scholarship Fund

CCYHA families,

Prior to the July 4th weekend, I sent out an email about the passing of Patrick Deegan. Patrick was the father of Mike Deegan. Mike is a coach and board member at CCYHA and has been for many years. Mike and Kari Deegan have volunteered countless hours to our program and have three children (Mike Jr., Nathan, and Karissa) in CCYHA. The sorrow felt by the passing of Patrick cannot be replaced, but his love for watching his grandchildren play the game of hockey can be passed along, in his memory.

In lieu of flowers or donations at the services, the Deegan family has set up the Patrick Deegan Scholarship Fund. See below for information regarding the scholarship fund:

The Patrick Deegan Scholarship Fund has been established by his family to honor and remember a very special man who lost his life suddenly to a heart attack on June 30, 2015.  Pat loved all children and had a young spirit.  One of his favorite things to do was go to the hockey rink early in the morning and watch his grandchildren and all the other Central children play hockey.  Whether it was watching the Learn to Play kids skate for the first time or traveling on a bus to Sarnia with the Squirt A1 team, Pat was always there on the boards with a smile and thumbs up.  Please help us remember Pat's love of life, kindness and generosity.  The contributions to this fund will be used to provide financial assistance for hockey funds for a CCYHA family that is dealing with a hardship.  Pat would never want an unexpected hardship to get in the way of a child doing something they love; playing hockey. Donations can be made out to Central Connecticut Youth Hockey Association (CCYHA) with the note Patrick Deegan Scholarship Fund. 

Donations can be mailed to:   

                  Kari and Mike Deegan

Congratulations CCYHA player, Shane Dawson

CCYHA player, Shane Dawson, was awarded the Coaches Award recently at Elite Hockey Camp at Norwich University in Vermont. The award is given to a player who is well behaved, works hard, is dedicated and someone who is a coachable kid. Congratulations to Shane on receiving this wonderful award. The character shown by Shane at this camp exemplifies everything that CCYHA stands for. 

The accomplishment itself is a tremendous honor, but amazingly enough, this is the third consecutive year that a CCYHA player has been awarded this honor at this camp. Shane follows Michael Goralski as last years winner and Ian Fisher as winner two years ago.

Outgoing Release Request System

Any CCYHA player that was on a CCYHA roster for the 2014-2015 season and will be playing for another organization in 2015-2016 must have a release to that new program. We have set up a registration process to ensure that your release will be processed in a timely manner. Once the release request is received by the CCYHA Registrar, Aaron Odell, he will complete a release and send to CHC. We are not allowed to send a release to a parent, it must be sent to CHC. 

Even if a player is going to a non-CHC program, you must still obtain a release.

CHC updates their release list periodically throughout the summer. You could view that list on the CHC site.

If you have any questions, please contact the CCYHA Registrar, Aaron Odell, at a.odell@snet.net
