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, a House team 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.
The Board of the Northeast Youth Hockey Association (NEYHA) Ice Dogs is thrilled to announce a merger with the Eastern Bucks Fall Midget team, effective immediately!
The Bucks, who will now be known as the Northeast Bucks, are coached by Eastern Connecticut State University Head Hockey Coach John Brancati and Bucks fall coach Mark Schoen. The Bucks play a 20-game season that stretches from Labor Day until Thanksgiving, with all home games, practices, and clinics taking place at the Mark Edward Freitas Ice Forum on the campus of the University of Connecticut.
The merger with the Bucks expands NEYHA's footprint in the Connecticut Hockey Conference, as it represents the first time that the organization has competed at the Midget level.
Please join us in warmly welcoming and supporting the Northeast Bucks!
