If you knew Ben Ruedisili for even one day, you know the energy, passion and comedy he brought to everything he did. Ben was “ALL IN” in everything he did. The BENERGY, as we all love to call it, is a spirit of fun, friendship (and feistiness!) that continues to bring us joy. With that said OYHA is honored to sponsor the 2nd annual Benergy Bash, in honor of Ben’s 11th birthday, through a BENERGY BASH that brings together the communities that shaped his life.
The puck will drop at 2:00 pm at Orono Ice Arena. Youth boys and girls are encouraged to participate on the ice.
The ticket cost is $25 per skater. The event includes organized 3-on-3 scrimmages, relay races, a jersey, team assignments will be given at the door.
If you do have a jersey from last year and would like to re-use we will supply you with a patch that displays "2nd annual Benergy Bash". This will allow more money to go back to OYHA to support our programs.
There is no cost to watch and cheer from the stands -- we hope you'll join us! There will be a Chuck-a-Puck event to benefit Orono Youth Hockey, DJ and much much more!

We are extremely excited about our new Jerseys for the 2016/2017 season courtesy of Swans.
Many parents & players have asked if they can buy the old jerseys because they are symbolic of some fond memories for many. The answer is "yes", and the time is now.
You can request to purchase the old jerseys for $20/each. Requests will be processes in the order received. You will receive a response in the next several days indicating whether we were able to fulfill your request.
All proceeds will go to improve the Orono Youth Hockey Boys & Girls programs and facilities.
OYHA Mission Statement
Orono Hockey Boosters provides a traveling hockey program for youth in the Orono community, including but not limited to students in the Orono Minnesota School District. We operate American Development Model (ADM) programs for kids at the 4-9 year old level as well as traveling teams for boys at the A, B, and C levels for Squirts, PeeWees, and Bantams, and for girls at the U10, U12, and U14 levels. We also are committed to offering a program at other youth levels (Junior Gold) when the demand within our association justifies doing so. We operate under the terms of a Code of Conduct that is signed and acknowledged by all players, parents, and coaches each season.
Our philosophy is to promote the growth and development of players in a fun, fair, and safe environment that maximizes player participation and skill development at all levels while also developing sportsmanship, teamwork, and self-confidence.
We believe that participation in youth hockey should lead to building of personal self-esteem, self-discipline, social skills, and respect for others.
We are committed to evaluating our programs on an ongoing basis to ensure that we are serving our memberships’ needs, developing our players at all skill levels, and providing a positive experience for our youth.
