Program Overview

Program Overview

Over 250 Tri-Town children play in the MYH program, with ages ranging from four to eighteen. Most children begin learning to skate from the ages of four to eight and MYH provides these beginning hockey players with an excellent developmental program that provides them with basic skills. Once the player completes the developmental program they are placed on a travel team that is compatible with their ability level. As time passes, players will move from Mites to Squirts to Pee Wees to Bantams and finally on to Midgets. MYH plays in the Valley League and the season runs from September to April. A typical week for a travel team player consists of two weekday practices, a weekday skills practice and a weekend game. MYH primarily holds practices at the Essex Sports Center Rink (Middleton). Travel teams are entered into the Valley League according to their experience and skill level, and adjustments are made through parity to ensure that divisions are balanced. Games are generally scheduled on Saturdays and Sundays, although weeknight games are prevalent at the older levels.
