    Interested in Coaching for the 2017-18 Season?

    Perspective 10U/12U/14U/16U Coaches,

    For those that don’t know me, my name is Jason Buchanan, the ACE for Schenectady Youth Hockey Association. SYHA is now accepting coaching applications for the 2017-2018 season. The application process is a "rolling process", meaning the Coaching Selection Committee will evaluate applicants as we receive their application and assign coaches accordingly.

    SYHA is committed to the ADM program and USA Hockey’s values and principles. In addition to the season’s prerequisite requirements (see attached), we expect our coaches to demonstrate behaviors and values consistent with those of SYHA and USA Hockey. 

    If you are interested in coaching in SYHA for the upcoming season, please reply via e-mail to with responses to the following: 

    1) LEVEL: What level you are interested in coaching at SYHA … note the name changes; 10U (Squirt), 12U (Peewee), 14U (Bantam), 16U (Midget).

    2) POSITION: If you want to be a Head Coach, Assistant coach, or On-ice helper.

    3) EXPERIENCE: History of coaching, including most recent coaching experiences (all sports).

    4) CONTACT INFORMATION: E-mail address and phone number.

    Information will be complied and reviewed by the Coaching Selection Committee. We are forecasting 4 teams at 10U, 4 teams at 12U, 2 teams at 14U and 2 teams at 16U, so there will be plenty of opportunity to be engaged in youth hockey at Schenectady.

    We look forward to hearing from you. One final note, I am sure that there are coaches who were inadvertently missed on this distribution.  Please make sure to forward this to any other perspective coaches within or outside of SYHA who might want to join us for this year.


    On behalf of the SYHA Board,

    Jason Buchanan
