Susquehanna Valley Stampede Youth Hockey (Ages 5-18)
The Susquehanna Valley Stampede Youth Hockey Club is a USA Hockey sanctioned club with certified coaches that are educated through developmental programs and Safe Sport training to assure every child’s safety and development.
Our coaches pride themselves on developing core values such as sportsmanship and team work. Stampede hockey promotes the growth of this great sport in the region through our website www.sunburystampedehockey.com as well as local school open houses and word of mouth. So please help us spread the word. Youth hockey is a life-long sport as most of our coaching staff still play today as adults. We are always looking for players, coaches, and volunteers. House recreational teams often play games with other club teams at home as well as away. Teams travel as far as two hours away to Harrisburg, Hershey, York, Lancaster, and Palmyra. House Rec teams also play in various tournaments based on the number of willing participants. Our Scholastic program participates in an arranged league in the Harrisburg area.
For more information, go to www.sunburystampedehockey.com – Registration will be opening soon!

Line Mountain Cyber School
Superintendents representing 15 Schools in the CSIU 16 region reach out to local newspaper for help regarding Cyber School tuition rates.
Click Here for more facts when speaking to your legislatures about House Bill 526 and Senate Bill 34 regarding funding reform for Cyber Schools
Proposed House Bill (526) and Senate Bill (34) could save Line Mountain taxpayers more than a half-million dollars. A full presentation regarding the continued concerns with local tax payer funding of Cyber Schools can be found by clicking HERE. While there is nothing definitive to report currently, there has been a lot of discussion on the bills introduced by Rep. Sonney (House Bill 526) and Sen. Schwank (Senate Bill 34) that would require parents to pay that tuition if the school district of residence offers a full-time cyber program. Although there is a lot of momentum and discussion about cyber charter tuition, many don’t think either bill will make it across the finish line. Please talk to your legislators about bills introduced by Rep. Sonney and Sen. Schwank and support for those bills.
