Editor's note: The following is a press release from the Wayland Hockey Association.
Practicing and playing at the MacDowell Ice Arena in Weston, local high school girls are gearing up for another season in the Massachusetts Interscholastic Athletic Association's (MIAA) Dual County League. December 2011 will mark the seventh year for the combined Weston/Wayland girls' hockey team, led from the beginning by Bill MacDonald, who formerly coached at Harvard College.
Not well known is that the expensive sport is fully supported by private donations and parent fundraising. While many other sports are funded through school athletic program budgets, ice hockey is not. The Wayland Hockey Association (WHA) is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization that fundraises on behalf of the student skaters.
For the third year, the WHA will publish a 40-page player and team program. This program offers area businesses an opportunity to advertise inexpensively throughout the local Weston and Wayland communities. The book is distributed at all home Weston and Wayland games. Advertisements for the upcoming winter season are available until November 30 through the Association's website.
