Posted by Coach on April 23, 2015

Dear student-athletes and parents,

Reeths-Puffer Athletics will be hosting a NCAA Eligibility Center seminar on April 27th in room 211.  This meeting will be held at 7:00 p.m. and will cover important topics regarding academic performance and how it impacts each student’s opportunity to play sports in college.
Please e-mail Mr. Schmitt at with any questions.



Also please review the previous post on Summer activities and get registered this week to protect your opportunities to participate as some of them will become full faster than you realize.

Summer camp info and Recomendations

Posted by Coach on March 23, 2015

As we look to continue our development as a program we need to make targeted decisions that prioritize the growth of our players and program.  Development is encouraged and we want players participating in summer workouts as a team and supporting one another.  Additional workouts are an added bonus but should not take precedent over team activities being offered either on the ice or in the weight room.  Please follow the recommended activities before selecting additional opportunities for summer hockey.  Spring hockey is upon us the next two weeks with try-outs for various teams, any spring hockey is supported by us as long as the athlete wishes to participate, taking some time to focus on a spring sport is equally supported.


Recommended summer priority programs:

Strength and conditioning with Aaron Szura and coaching staff at R-PHS weight room.

Important Game Change Info

Posted by Coach on February 20, 2015

Hello All

Sorry to bring some semi-bad news. The game time for tomorrow is at 3pm not 8pm. There are a couple different schedules with different times so please plan accordingly.

Please tell the boys to be ready to leave lakeshore at 1pm. ALSO is it their senior night so who knows how long that will take!

Again sorry for the confusion, and pass the word just in case.


Important- Chelsea Tournament updates

Posted by Coach on February 2, 2015

Hello All
I know many of you have been asking for information on the up coming tournament and future hockey dates- here you go:
Bus will be leaving at 7:30am from Lakeshore Sports Centre.  The team will try to check into the hotel before going to the rink (not probable, but going to try)
All games are at the Chelsea Arctic Ice Arena
Team dinner after the game on Thursday- 3pm at Cottage Inn in Ann Arbor (official pre-game dinner of U of M hockey- nice place, great food) cost is $16.50 per person.  Any parents/family are welcome to join but Eric must get a head count by Tuesday February 3rd and payment must be made on Wednesday February 4th.  Eric has to pre-pay for this dinner, so counts and payment are a must!
Weather permitting- the team will do a campus walk at U of M and then head back to the hotel for the evening.  Players are encouraged to go and watch other games at the rink.
The team will check out before Friday’s game and leave immediately after.  They will stop for food on the way home.
I still need to collect $20 payment for each player for the hotel cost, plus payment for any extra family members for the charter bus.
Wednesday February 4th- parent night
Saturday February 12th- senior night
play off games:
start on Monday March 2nd-LC Walker Arena  against Mona Shores,
the rest of the play off schedule is tentative:  Wednesday March 4th, Saturday March 7th, quarter finals- Monday/Tuesday March 9th/10th; Semi-finals Thursday March 12th; and Championships Saturday March 14th
As far as I know, this is all the information for the rest of the hockey schedule.
thank you
Leslie Young
