      By Jeremy Forest 02/16/2019, 9:00am EST

      DYHA is preparing for our 2019-20 Granite State Wild Tryouts & Team Skates which will be held during the week of March 4th and March 11th.

      We are seeking volunteers to help staff the Tryout and Team Skate nights.   Tryouts are a busy time for the organization and we are greatly in need of members to assist our all-volunteer Board in managing these events.  We ask ALL families to find one time during these two weeks to help us for a couple of hours during this important time of year. 

      Please click here to view a list of time slots and to sign up
      (*Please note: by selecting a time slot you must commit to the entire time specified. )


      Best of luck to all players in their tryouts!

      By Jeremy Forest 02/07/2019, 2:45pm EST

      Tryouts Start March 4th!

      Tryouts for the 2019-20 Granite State Wild will be held starting Monday, March 4th.  The 2019-20 program guide is now available along with the tryout information, schedule and online registration.  These can also be found on the "2019-2020 Wild Tryouts' page on the DYHA website, under the Travel Team menu.

      The Granite State Wild offers players the best in hockey skill development and competition by offering a combined schedule of league games, tournaments and independent games in the New England Premier League, Granite State League and Seacoast Hockey League.

      Granite State Wild players participate in weekly 80 minute skill sessions and a weekly 50-80 minute team practice.  Goalies receive training both on the ice during team skills sessions and in specialized sessions at the Puckstoppers goalie training center in Exeter, NH. 

      As a non-profit hockey organization, DYHA keeps hockey as affordable as possible while providing the best value of any hockey program in the region.  We encourage you to compare all that we offer to similarly priced programs...or even the programs that charge $1000 more!

      *140-160 of ice time per week for most age levels (80 min practice & 80 min skill session)
      *5+ full ice, 60-minute practices per season
      *Professional skills training 
      *Professional on-ice and specialty goalie training
      *30-40 games per season, plus playoffs (*league dependent) 
      *Entry fee into 2 independent tournaments (most levels)
      *Pro-weight, twill home and away game jerseys, game socks & practice jersey

      Wild team rosters are limited to a maximum of 16 players (14 skaters, 2 goalies) at ALL levels.    

      We look forward to seeing you at tryouts starting March 4th...
