We are a non-profit youth hockey association offering programs for children ages 3-18 years old. Programs include travel teams from the Mite through Midget level, and a TYKES (Teaching Young Kids the Essentials of Skating) program. The Ice Dogs skate at Mark Edward Freitas Ice Forum, the home of the UCONN Huskies.
If you have a future hockey star in your family and want to learn more about our program, please click on TYKES (Teaching Young Kids the Essentials of Skating) or contact us. No prior skating experience is necessary for TYKES.
Come have fun and play hockey!
CHC State Tournament Comes to the Freitas Ice Forum!
NEYHA, and the Freitas Ice Forum, has been chosen to host the Connecticut Hockey Conference's Campbell Division State Tournament for the Pee Wee level! Not since the 2010-2011 season have we been so honored.
The tournament will take place between March 5-March 8, 2015 and represents an incredible opportunity to showcase both our organization and the magnificent facility that we call home!
While this is a wonderful showcase for us, it will require a lot of volunteer labor (to welcome guests, to direct teams to appropriate dressing rooms, to work penalty boxes, and scoreboards, etc.) and a tremendous amount of pre-planning in order to make it a success. To this end, the NEYHA Board has convened a sub-committee. Mary Dudas will be in charge of coordinating and scheduling all volunteers; she will be reaching out to many of you, but you are encouraged to reach out to her directly at email@example.com in order to volunteer any help that you might be able to provide.
Many thanks to our very own Mike Iacampo (who, in addition to serving as head coach for our Mite B Ice Dogs, is the rink manager for the Freitas Ice Forum) for his great help and assistance in making this happen.
This is just another great moment in what has been a wonderful 2014-2015 season for our organization!
