      Wild Squirt Majors Showing Their True Colors

      10/25/2017, 8:15pm EDT
      By Jeremy Forest

      If you've been around the Dover Arena this month you may have noticed that one of our Granite State Wild teams is taking the ice in something other than their black and gold gear. 

      The GSW Squirt Majors have chosen to don pink game jerseys and socks during the month of October in honor of National Breast Cancer Awareness month, an annual campaign organized by major breast cancer charities to increase awareness of the disease and to raise funds for research into its cause and prevention. 


      Wearing of pink has become a symbol of support for breast cancer survivors and those battling the disease.  The decision to wear these special uniforms has extra meaning for the team.  Players and their families have united in wearing pink to show their support for the mother of a teammate who is currently battling the disease.

      DYHA Partners with Bauer to "Grow the Game"

      DYHA is the 2nd Program in the US to offer The First Shift

      Dover Youth Hockey Association is excited to announce a new partnership with Bauer to introduce young athletes and their families to the sport of hockey.  DYHA becomes just the second organization in the United States to launch The First Shift, a program designed to “grow the game” by making hockey fun, accessible and affordable for those trying the sport for the first time.   


      The First Shift program is designed to give players an opportunity to try the game at a very reasonable cost, outfitting them in full hockey gear and providing a 6-week hockey skills session for just $299.  The program’s goal is to offer a positive, fun environment for players to learn the game.  It also offers new hockey parents the opportunity to learn about the game- from equipment to player safety to rules- surrounded by other new hockey parents. 


      The Dover Youth Hockey First Shift program will kick off at 6:00 on Monday, November 20th at the McConnell Center in downtown Dover with an equipment fitting and information night.  Each participant will be outfitted with brand new Bauer gear, including helmets, skates, pads, stick and bag that is theirs to keep.  Fitting will be done by representatives from Bauer who will help to ensure proper fit and explain to parents how to properly size gear for their player.  Players and parents will also participate in an information session, learning some of the basics of the game both on and off the ice. 


      Once outfitted, players will attend a 6-week Introduction to Hockey program that will be held on Sunday mornings at the Dover Arena starting on December 3rd.  The sessions will be run by DYHA and will follow a program plan focused on teaching fundamental hockey skills in a positive, fun environment.


      Pre-registration is required and participation is limited.  To register a player, please visit:
