DYHA First Shift Program

DYHA & Bauer Partnering Again to Help New Players Try Hockey

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:
