House Program


The EYHA House Program is designed to provide the opportunity to play for enjoyment, fitness, relaxation and fellowship.  Skill development and team concepts are stressed.  This program allows players to experience competitive play locally and between other in-league teams that provide a fun learning experience.  It is ideal for players/families who wish to participate in an ice hockey program without the demands of a heavy travel schedule.

Teams consist of 12-16 players which practice on average once a week (approx. 25 hours of full ice) and 12 games on various days and times between three ice rinks.  The season starts in October and goes until March, ending with a playoff tournament.  The estimate cost per player is $500-$600 per season.  All fees can be paid in full or be setup on a payment plan during EYHA registration period.

The following Divisions are available:

  • Squirt
  • Peewee
