2016-17 BYH House League and Ice Mice: Time to Register!



Welcome to the 2016-2017 season for Brookline Youth Hockey's Instructional Hockey ProgramsIce Mice and House League!  Registration for 2016-2017 season of the Instructional Program for Brookline Youth Hockey is now open:

Ice Mice and House League

Our Instructional Hockey programs, Ice Mice and House League, comprise the foundation of our Brookline Youth Hockey program where new, young players (Warriors) learn how to play hockey.  The program is intended for players ages 4 - 8, however, consideration will be given for older children interested in learning how to play the game.  Brookline Youth Hockey is fortunate to provide our Warriors with the most amazing hockey experience in the Greater Boston Area with our home rink:  Larz Anderson.

Please note if you are registering between September 20 - December 1, 2016, you are registering for one of two levels of the instructional program offered by BYH (after you have first registered with USA Hockey)
Ice Mice
Designed for first- and some second-year players who can skate without adult assistance. Our focus is on skating skills, puck control, and fun! All Ice Mice players practice together and are divided by age and ability level to work in small area skills stations. This is where are youngest Warriors first learn the joys of the game of hockey.  Ice Mice Hockey sessions take place Saturday mornings and early Sunday evenings from the beginning of December through the end of February / beginning of March. Anticipated start: early Last weekend of November.
House League
BYH's next level of our Instructional Program is designed for our second- and third- year players. Our focus is on skating skills, puck control, positional play, weekly cross-ice scrimmages and even more fun!. Skaters will be evaluated by the coaches to begin the season for the developing hockey abilities including:  skating forward and backward, balance on both edges of the blades, and basic handling of the puck with the stick.  This is where are young Warriors fall learn to love the game of Hockey.  House League Warriors will be divided into teams that will play in round-robin cross-ice scrimmages throughout the season, culminating in the highly-anticipated House Cup Tournament.  Practices are three times per week:  Saturday mornings, early Sunday evening, and one weekday evening. Anticipated start: mid-November 2016.
Each player must bring a hockey stick and must wear a helmet with a face shield, hockey skates, knee pads, elbow pads, hockey pants and hockey gloves.  While BYH does not promote any particular vendor, there are several local vendors that are frequently visited by members of BYH.  Some commonly used vendors of hockey equipment in no specific order include:

If you are unfamiliar with how to size equipment or have any specific questions these stores are a good resource.  Pure Hockey and Sports Monkey (Hockey Monkey) both have special package deals for new players, which include everything your child will need to get out on the ice.  The Pure Hockey link for more information is:  http://www.purehockey.com/learn-to-play-starter-package-free-bauer-skates.  Additionally, Play It Again Sports (630 Washington Street, Dedham, 781-493-6796) sells new and used equipment, which is a useful option since the gear can be expensive and skaters grow fast! Please note these stores are offered as suggestions and BYH is not affiliated with any of these purveyors. Remember to print your player's first name on the front of his/her helmet, and to label all of their equipment accordingly.

Brookline Youth Hockey does not offer a Learn-to-Skate program. The Brookline Recreation Department usually offers such a program at the Larz Anderson rink.
See the Fees, Due Dates, and Refunds page for information about age requirements and fees for each level of play.

Players of the appropriate ages are eligible to enroll in Brookline Youth Hockey instructional programs regardless of where they live or attend school.  For the 2014-15 season, the age requirements are:

Ice Mice:  2005-2012

House League:  2003 -2011
