VYHA House Leagues

Valley Youth Hockey Association offers House League (recreational hockey) programs from U8 through U18 age levels. VYHA offers three distinct House League experiences based on age level. U8 players participate in the Mite House League, a cross-ice hockey experience designed to follow the principles of USA Hockey's American Developmental Model (ADM). Four VYHA's youngest players, the Mite House League offers a great introduction to the game of hockey scaled to their age and physical size. VYHA players eligible for the U10 and U12 age levels participate in VYHA's Lower House League. Skaters in the U14, U16 and U18 age levels play in the VYHA's Upper House League program. All House League players participate in one weekday evening practice and play games on a weekly or bi-weekly basis. VYHA's House League is a great place for beginning and intermediate players to improve their hockey skills and learn team play and other more advance hockey concepts. Registration for VYHA's House League programs will open on August 15.
