Please take note of the following:

  • Photos will be taken of all VYHA groups, including Learn to Play, House League and Travel Teams. You are free to purchase individual photos based on your preference. We do, however, ask that everyone take part in the team photos regardless of your desire to purchase individual photos.
  • Please note that House League teams (with the exception of the Mites) will have their photos taken at different times than the corresponding travel teams. This is largely a function of the number of players needing to be photographed at one time.
  • All House League players should wear their assigned team jerseys to practice on photo night.
  • All travel team players should wear (or bring) their BLACK ROANOKE EXPRESS JERSEYS.
  • The Portrait Order Form and the Trading Card Information Sheet (if choosing to have trading cards made) can be found below.
  • Important things to note about the Portrait Order Form:
    • Payment (cash or check) is due when the photos are taken by the staff of Kevin Hurley Photography.
    • If you are selecting the Trading Card option, please be sure to complete the information form attached with this email).
    • Team names are required information on the Portrait Order form. If you have questions about your player's team, please consult your age group coordinator prior to Photo Day.
    • As you might imagine, Photo Day is hectic and anything we can do to minimize confusion is greatly appreciated.

Kroger Community Rewards

As previously announced, Kroger Corporations has done away with its' "Kroger Cares" program. Kroger has announced the creation of a "Kroger Community Rewards" program to replace the previous program. Valley Youth Hockey's Board of Directors has been working to learn more information about the program. The Board believes that we have set up a system for our participant's to acheive maximum benefit from the Kroger Community Rewards program. Please click this link to learn more about the Kroger Community Rewards Program and how to register your family to participate in the program. See the Kroger link for more information.
