A current membership with USA Hockey is required for all those wanting to register with Minnetonka Youth Hockey.  Your current USA Hockey Membership number is needed when filling out your player's registration for both season registration and clinic registration.  If you don't already have a current USA Hockey Membership number for the 2015-2016 hockey season, it would be advisable to obtain that prior to the start of registration.

Jersey Size and Jersey Numbers

Bantam, Peewee, Squirt, 14U, 12U and 10U players. You will be required to enter your jersey sizing information as part of the MYHA season registration process.  The jersey order will be placed on August 1st.  To guarantee your size and choice of jersey number, you must register before August 1st.  You will keep these jerseys after the season is over.  No refunds or exchanges on the jerseys.

There is a new jersey design for this season (so you may not use last year's jersey).  The players will be allowed to give their first four choices for a jersey number (between 1-98).  Once the teams are formed, the jersey numbers will be decided based upon the players’ choices.  Once assigned to a team, the jersey number choices will be selected.  If two or more players desire the same jersey number, then the date and time of season registration will determine who gets the number.

We are using the same jersey supplier so the sizes offered will be the same as last year.  If you are unsure of the size you need, there will be sample jerseys at Pagel shorty.  An email will be sent when the sample jerseys are available for fitting.

 

 

Pagel Ice Expansion - Neighborhood Meeting - June 3rd

On Wednesday, June 3, 2015, Minnetonka Youth Hockey Association (MYHA) will be holding a neighborhood meeting to discuss the proposed addition of a second sheet of ice to the Pagel Activity Center. 

The meeting will be held at Minnetonka High School, 18301 Highway 7, in the Forum and will run from 6:30PM until approximately 8:00PM.  MYHA representatives will be making a presentation to provide an overview of the mission and purpose of the association, the need for the rink expansion and an outline of the proposed project. A question and answer session will follow the presentation.

Pagel Ice Arena Expansion Plans

Minnetonka Youth Hockey Association held a VIRTUAL Meeting for all Hockey parents and future Hockey parents on May27th, 2015 to learn about proposed expansion plans to build a second ice rink behind the Pagel Center. MYHA has secured the approval of the School District and entered into a lease agreement for the land. Now MYHA is working with the City of Minnetonka for planning commission approval.
How will the additional rink impact
youth hockey in Minnetonka and what will it cost?

2015 MYHA Annual Meeting Recap

At the MYHA 2015 Annual Meeting held on April 13th, we said "thank you" to eight individuals who have given a great deal of their time and expertise to MYHA over the past two years. Nancy Hauser, Jeff Williams, Bret Johnson, Anne Madson, Dave Erickson, Brian Wilson, Jenny Johnson, and Tom Cooper have all volunteered at least two years on the MYHA Board. Rick Helling's two-year term had concluded, but he ran and was re-elected to another two-year term.

We are pleased to welcome Hope Holler, Darrell Lindemann, Steve Baer, Ann Moss, and Rick Jelinek who were all elected to two-year Board terms this evening.

At 8pm Jim van Bergen and Sharon Morgan gave a 30-minute presentation on the proposed second rink on the MHS Campus and then answered questions from the audience until 9pm. One of the issues discussed was that despite a chronic shortage of available ice time, the fact is that the MYHA girls program has grown 73% over the past 10 years, while the MYHA boys program has grown more than 25% during the same time frame.


    Rink 2 Update - Great News!


    On Tuesday March 24th, the Minnetonka School Board voted unanimously in favor of the MYHA Ground Lease and the proposal to build a second sheet of ice at the High School.  This is a crucial first step to building a second sheet of ice and now allows us to begin the process of gaining City of Minnetonka approval.  There is a lot of work to be done before anyone can lace up their skates but, it is an important step. 

    We want to sincerely thank Dr. Peterson, Paul Bourgeois and the members of the School Board for their thoughtful consideration, questions and ultimately their support of our endeavor!

    MYHA Board Approves Royal Blue Colors

    In an effort to promote a standardized uniform for MYHA players, the MYHA board has approved a new rule to standardize the equipment colors. Beginning with the 2015-16 season, all MYHA participants on the "Travel," levels (Squirt/U10, Peewee/U12, Bantam/U14) will be required to wear royal blue helmets, gloves and breezers (or shell).  These requirements do not apply to Mites or 6U/8U teams, however we encourage them to purchase royal blue when possible.

    MYHA Safe Sport Coordinator

    USA Hockey implemented a set of policies called The SafeSport Program. The purpose of this program is to create the safest possible environment for participation in hockey. TJ Worrell is MYHA's SafeSport coordinator.

    The comprehensive program is focused on creating an environment that will deter abusers and assist those in the hockey community in recognizing, reducing and responding to allegations or suspected abuse. You can read about the program by clicking on the link below.
