Saturday, January 26th is "Dover Youth Hockey Association Night" at the Whittemore Center!
Join your DYHA teammates, friends and family for a fun-filled night cheering on the UNH Men's Hockey team as they will face off in a Hockey East battle against the UConn Huskies! The excitement will continue between periods as players from our Granite State Wild Mite Development team take to the ice for a DYHA vs. DYHA showdown!
DYHA will have our own section at the game where Wild E Cat and Gnarlz will come up to say hello and take pictures.
All players are asked to wear their game jerseys. Let's fill our section with Wild and Stars colors and show the UNH crowd our DYHA pride!
Tickets for the game are $15 for adults and $12 for children age 17 and under. The deadline to order tickets is Sunday, January 13th. Tickets will be distributed by DYHA at team practices the week before the game.

Registration for Session 2 of DYHA’s 2018-19 House League is now open! We’re excited for another season of hockey fun and we’ve made some great improvements to this year’s program, including a new skills program with NH Ice Kings .
DYHA’s House League is part of our new "Star Player" Development Program, which also includes "The First Shift" Intro to Hockey program. The Star Player Development Program has two goals:
1) Introduce new players to the game
2) Provide a great option for players who love the game and want to develop their skills, but aren't looking for the commitment of travel hockey
Session 2 of House League will kick off with team practice on Friday, December 14th. The first weekend of games will be held on Sunday, December 16th.
This year DYHA has partnered with NH Ice Kings to provide our House League players with specialized, professional skills instruction. NH Ice Kings instructors will work with players every other week to enhance their skating and playing skills. This makes DYHA House League the only in-house program in the area to offer professional skills development!
We have also split the House League schedule into two 8-week sessions. Players can choose to play in both sessions, but have the option to register for just our first or second session.

Mini-Mite (U6) Birth Year 2012, 2013, & 2014

Dover Youth Hockey Association is excited to partner with Bauer Hockey to offer The First Shift program!
The First Shift provides a low-cost opportunity for young athletes and their families to try the hockey for the first time. For just $199, players are provided with a FULL set of equipment, including a helmet, stick, skates and all pads. Players then participate in a 6-week "Intro to Hockey" program run by DYHA coaches, held Sunday mornings at the Dover Ice Arena.
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 program runs from early October to early December each year. Registration for our 2019 program will be announced in August on our website and Facebook page. For more information about the program please visit: www.doverhockey.org/thefirstshift.
DYHA will holds an annual golf tournament each fall as a fundraiser to support our player scholarship fund. The tournament is held in honor of two long-time members of the DYHA family, Scott French and Michael Hower, Sr. All proceeds from the event go to helping DYHA continue to provide a great hockey experience to our players and their families, funding scholarships and reducing the cost of participation for all players..
If you are interested in being a corporate sponsor or volunteer at our next tournament, please email Dan Toland, Golf Tournament Chairperson, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
