The Missoula Area Youth Hockey Association offers two avenues for youth to participate in winter hockey programs:

The In-House program provides all skaters with an equal opportunity to enjoy the game of hockey and develop personal and team cooperation skills.

The Travel program allows players to compete at an advanced level and to enhance team play by integrating each player’s skills. Equal ice time for all players is not a requirement in the Travel Program. Tryouts are required for all travel programs, which begin in October.

In-House Programs

In-House program fees include two ice sessions each week for Termite, Mite, Squirt and Peewee players. All termite, mite, squirt, and peewee house players receive jerseys that they may keep.

Bantam/High School players are placed on teams within the first two weeks of the season and play weekly games, that end in a best-of-three series championship. The program provides jerseys for these players that must be returned at the end of the season.


Schedule

The in-house season runs 14-weeks – November 1, 2021 through February 16, 2022 – with a two-week break over the holidays between December 20 and January 3. Termites, Mites and Squirts can choose either a full season or half season: November 1–December 15, 2021 or January 3-February 15, 2022.

Mandatory Parent Meetings

Mandatory parent meetings will be held over Zoom. Zoom links will be sent out about one week prior to the start date of the season.

Schedule 21-22


House Plus

We are excited to announce that House Plus teams will be offered again this season! House Plus registration will open on October 19th, 2021. All players who wish to participate in the house plus option must be registered for a mite, squirt, or peewee house league. House Plus is an optional addition to your players house hockey experience. New this season, the house plus registration fee will include 4 tournament or jamboree fees, unique house plus light and dark jerseys, and 1 hour of ice time prior to each tournament or jamboree weekend. Schedules for the house plus teams will be posted prior to October 19th. Players are expected to attend all of the scheduled dates. No pro-rated fees will be offered for this program.

Travel Programs

Travel fees include two to three on-ice practices each week (see table below), entry fee into the MAHA state tournament and additional home ice slots. Tryouts will be held during the month of October, and A and B teams will be formed where numbers allow. Each age group will participate in a week-long tryout. Tryout dates will be posted after registration has ended. All players must provide credit or debit card information during online registration and will be charged volunteer obligation amounts if they are owed at the end of the season. Lost or stolen jerseys will also be charged to the provided credit or debit card. We are no longer collecting post-dated fundraising checks. 

There are additional costs that will be expected to be paid by each family if your player chooses to participate in travel hockey. Additional costs include tournament fees, travel costs (hotel, gas, meals), coaches expenses, and other miscellaneous fees that each team may choose to incur.

Schedule

The travel season runs October 4, 2021 through March 18, 2022 with optional practices over the holidays between December 20 and January 3.

Parent Meetings

All age groups will have a mandatory pre-tryout parent meeting prior to the first session. All parent meetings will be held via Zoom. Meeting invites will be sent out after registration ends.

Scholarship Application

A limited number of scholarships are available for families who are in need of financial assistance with their winter registration fees. To apply, complete a MAYHA Scholarship Application and return via mail or email as soon as possible.


Equipment Rental

Rental equipment is available for the season at a cost of $75 per player. All equipment rental is by appointment only through our scheduling software. Please use this link:

Online Equipment Rental Scheduling

Families that have multiple players renting equipment should schedule one appointment for each player.


Sponsors

Team sponsors are still needed for the winter season and count toward volunteer obligation! Sponsors help offset the cost of operating our youth hockey programs, which keeps costs down for our families. If you know of a business who might be interested in sponsoring, contact Laura or download a Youth Hockey Team Sponsorships Packet.


Policies

Please see the MAYHA Guidebook for complete information on our program’s policies and procedures. Visit our COVID-19 policies page for complete information on the rink’s operating policies during phase 2.
