NYH IN-HOUSE PROGRAM OVERVIEW - 2022/2023

The goal of the NYH In-House program is to create a fun environment for younger and less experienced players to develop their skating and hockey skills.

Players of ALL abilities are welcome and encouraged to play, including older players who are new to hockey. Players are grouped based on a combination of age, size and skill level.
