2022-2023 Winter Programs

The Missoula Area Youth Hockey Association offers two avenues for youth to participate in hockey programs during the 2022-2023 winter season:

House programs provide all skaters with an equal opportunity to enjoy the game of hockey and develop personal and team cooperation skills.

Travel programs allow players to compete at an advanced level across the state and to enhance team play by integrating each player’s skills. Equal ice time for all players is not guaranteed, and players must try out for travel teams.

Program Updates

  • A 14U Girls travel option is open to girls in birth years 2008 through 2011.
  • The Bantam and High School House League has been expanded to four teams, and each team will play one game per week.
  • The program fees for for some house programs have been lowered.
  • All travel team players now have a volunteer obligation of $250.

House Programs

House program fees include two ice sessions each week for Termite, Mite, Squirt and Peewee players. Players at these levels 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 house season runs 15-weeks – November 2, 2022 through February 22, 2023 – with a two-week break over the holidays between December 19th and 30th. Termites, Mites and Squirts can choose either a full season or half-season: November 2–December 19, 2022 (7 weeks) or January 2-February 22, 2023 (8 weeks). Registration for the second half of the season will open on Monday, December 5th.

Players can pay their registration fee in full or pay through a payment plan. The volunteer obligation fee can either be paid in full or worked off over the season. See the Volunteer Obligations page for more information. New this season, all online registrations will require a stored credit or debit card. We are no longer collecting post-dated checks. All obligations owed at the end of the season will be charged to the stored credit or debit card.


Registration

All registrations will be done online through our DaySmart Recreation System. When registering, make sure to have your player’s name selected from the dropdown menu. Daysmart will only show programs your player is age-eligible for. Each registration fee includes a capital improvement fund fee ($10) that goes towards future rink capital projects.

Your child will need a 2022-2023 USA Hockey number in order to register! Please make sure to register your player using their FULL legal name as it appears on their birth certificate. Legal names are required by the registrar and all players must provide a birth certificate if they have not submitted one in a prior season. 

USA Hockey Membership Relief Fund Grant Application – apply if your family needs assistance covering the USA Hockey number fee.

Financial Assistance Application

Financial aid is available for families who are in need of assistance with their registration fees. To apply, complete a Financial Aid Application and return via email or mail prior to the program’s registration deadline or start date. Financial assistance covers up to 2/3 of the player’s registration fees. Financial assistance does not cover the volunteer obligation. Players should still register for the program prior to the registration deadline and/or program start date, and select the payment plan option. If the player is awarded financial assistance, the assistance amount will be applied to the remaining balance.


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. If you have multiple children in the program, please make at least TWO appointments to allow adequate time for the gear fittings.

The apparel ordering platform will open multiple times before the start of the winter season and the final  order will deliver before Christmas. It is highly recommended that players and parents order as soon as possible to ensure timely delivery dates.

The next apparel fitting will take place during our Welcome Night on Wednesday, September 7th. Players will be able to try on apparel and order the appropriate sizes.
