BLACKBIRDS YOUTH HOCKEY

Midwest Youth Hockey Association was formed in the fall of 2006 with the intention of providing children from Northwest Indiana the opportunity to learn, compete, and enjoy the game of ice hockey. The Blackbirds were founded on the principles of a strong commitment to skill development, promotion of sportsmanship and fair play, and an unmatched work ethic. When you join MYHA you are putting your child in a position to learn more than just the game of hockey. Dedication, discipline, and a strong desire to compete will be instilled in each of our aspiring athletes through a regimented curriculum focused on optimizing the performance of the individual, and above all, our teams.

Fees

All participants must register online with USA Hockey at www.usahockey.com for a fee of $45.00.


Levels

House Hockey

At the House level, the Midwest Blackbirds participate in the NorthWest Hockey League. The NWHL is a house hockey league with member teams from the greater Chicago area. Teams in the NWHL play a 8 game regular season schedule, followed by an end of season tournament. To maintain our commitment to player development, each house team receives one shared ice practice, one Skills Session per week, plus games! Players of all skill levels are welcome, as teams are divided equally after 2 evaluation dates.
