      House League Coaches Needed

      08/12/2018, 10:30am EDT
      By Jeremy Forest

      DYHA is currently seeking coaches for our House League program. The House League season runs from mid-October to late February for players born 2004-2012.  Teams practice on Friday evenings and play games on Sunday mornings.  All practices and games are held at the Dover Ice Arena.

      This year, DYHA has partnered with NH Ice Kings to provide specialized skills training for all players.  Ice Kings coaches will also provide our coaches with a resource for questions about practice planning and skill training.

      Anyone interested in helping this season as either a head or assistant coach is asked to email our Director of Hockey Operations, Mike Young, as soon as possible.  (For assistant coaches, no significant hockey playing or coaching experience is required.)

      The deadline for registration is now Sunday, August 12th.  

      DYHA has once again partnered with PRVN Sports Performance to provide a customized conditioning program for players.  Led by Head Coach Matt Carney and a staff of certified strength & conditioning trainers, the program will focus on developing each player’s strength, metabolic conditioning, balance and core stability. The PRVN coaching staff will lead players through age appropriate high-intensity circuit training and body weight strength development techniques.

      Eligibility: Any DYHA travel team or house league player born 2009 or later may enroll.  Players will be assigned to groups by age.  Each group will contain no more than 10 participants.

      Schedule: sessions will be 50 minutes in duration.  Players will attend one session per week at the time scheduled for their group.  Sessions will begin in September and run to the end of February for a total of 22 sessions.  

      Each group’s sessions will be held on a consistent day and time week-to-week (Monday or Wednesday).  The final schedule will be determined after the DYHA 2018-19 practice schedule has been finalized.  Every effort will be made to schedule off-ice training sessions on a nights when players are not also scheduled for an ‘on ice’ practice.  

      Location: all training will be done at the PRVN Sports Performance facility (50 Crosby Road, Dover NH). 

      Cost:  $300 per player*

      DYHA & Bauer Partnering Again to Help New Players Try Hockey

      Dover Youth Hockey Association, in partnership with Bauer Hockey, is excited to announce that the First Shift is back!

      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.  This year players will also participate in a "Kick Off" skate on Sunday, October 7th with members of the UNH Mens' Hockey Team and a mascot!

      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. 

      For more information and to register for this year's program please visit:   Pre-registration is required and participation is limited.
