About us


Looking to participate in a sport that requires skill, strength, strategic thinking and the desire to play as part of a team?  Whatever level you play at, hockey can enhance your life, improving fitness, strength and coordination.

Whether you are looking to play casually in our recreational league or competitively with one of our traveling teams, you'll find our organization to be a great place to learn new skills and meet new friends.


           The Altoona Youth Hockey Associations goal is to introduce the youth of our area communities to the great game of ice hockey, such that every child, through their participation in the program, can enjoy a positive, character-building sports experience while creating a passion for the game.

           AYHA believes that through the development of every individual, the collective team benefits from the resulting depth, diversity, and cohesion. This produces a level of confidence that brings success in the competitive hockey environment.

           Emphasis will always be placed upon education, personal development, teamwork, and sportsmanship. The individual conduct of board members, coaches, players, and parents will be maintained to ensure a positive culture in which all can honor the sport and exemplify an organization in which to be proud of.

           AYHA will not discriminate against any person or organization based on race, color, religion, sex, national origin, or sexual preference.

And, above all else…. “It’s always about the kids”.


           It is the mission of Altoona Youth Hockey Association to promote and foster a positive skating experience for area youth that can be applied in all aspects of life.
