Welcome to the 2023-2024 hockey season. We are looking forward to a great season of hockey and can't wait to see all of the kids back on the ice!

  • In an effort to keep association dues from significant increases, and more equally distribute the workload across the entire membership, we are continuing the OYHA Volunteer Program for the 2023-2024 season. The goal of the program is not to raise funds but to help the organization accomplish necessary jobs without having to pay outside vendors, and burn out our existing volunteer base.  The volunteer program is simply a way to track volunteer time and distribute it more equally amongst the entire organization.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to reach out to any of the board members. We are here to help!

Warrior Mite and Mite Program Level Fee Information (New for 2023-24)


To enhance player experience and skill development, OYHA has decided to reorganize the Mite (boys) and Warrior Mite (girls) programs.  The levels for girls and boys will match and player placement will be consistent across both programs.

Please see the tables below for fees and to aid in choosing the most accurate level for your child. NOTE: Please consider, and choose your skater level with intention as all Mite/Warrior Mite players will still be evaluated. As needed, players will move to the level that matches their skill. If a player is moved up, you will be invoiced electronically for the difference in fees. If a player is moved down, you will be refunded the difference in fees. We hope that including this change, will help to minimize the moves this year. 

We appreciate your partnership and are excited for the growth both the boy's and girl's programs are seeing!
