The James A. Stover Scholarship

In October 2003, James A. Stover, an SYHA skater, died tragically in a sudden accident while playing on a beach at Block Island. He was seven years old. Among James's many passions was hockey, and his zest for life and happy attitude were always with him on the ice.

To honor his spirit, we created a scholarship fund to enable any player to participate in the SYHA program, regardless of financial ability. Many parents and players have generously donated to this fund and SYHA raises funds throughout the year to enable as many players a possible to benefit from this generosity.

In order to qualify, a family needs only to fill out the application form and attach a copy of the previous year's IRS Form 1040. The application is reviewed - in strictest confidentiality - by a three member sub-panel of the SYHA Board of Directors consisting of the President, VP-Operations and Treasurer. Scholarships are awarded strictly based on financial need.
