2019-2020 Tryouts Reminder-NYH Elite Coaches Announced!

TRYOUTS ARE FAST APPROACHING!  MEET THE NYH ELITE COACHES!

Over the past decade, NYH has grown exponentially, and we are happy to announce that next season we will be offering a full spectrum of age and playing level options. Following Navy Youth Hockey’s ladder of development, the Program focuses on long-term player growth and will include combined skills sessions and dedicated team practices. Each team will build off the skills learned from the prior cohort, eventually preparing players for the Navy Elite Program. The Navy Elite Program (new this year) offers our U14/U16 skaters enhanced on and off-ice training, preparing them for the highest level of competition. Please click the link above for further detail.

Additionally, for the first time in our history, NYH will offer teams who will compete across any one of three leagues either locally or regionally. NYH is now a member of the CCHL (Capital Corridor Hockey League), the CBHL (Chesapeake Bay Hockey League), and the EJEPL (Eastern Junior Elite Prospects League).
