Millbrook Youth Hockey Association (MYHA) is a non-profit organization that has been teaching kids to play hockey for more than 50 years. Our mission is to educate our players about this exciting game and develop character, loyalty, sportsmanship, a sense of fair play and physical fitness through participation in our programs.
MYHA was started by a group of local residents who had a love for the game and the children who played it which continues to this day. We are always looking for volunteers for various functions, from the Board of Directors down to the running of the scoreboard during games, so don't hesitate to get involved! As with all volunteer organizations, the more input and assistance people are willing to give, the more our children will get out of the program. New ideas are always welcome and they usually lead to improvements that will be evident for the years to come as we continue to grow MYHA. Should you wish to assist in any way, please contact any of our present board members via the "Board of Directors" tab or send your ideas through the "Feedback" tab on the left hand side of this page.
As always, "Thank You" for your assistance and dedication to Millbrook Youth Hockey . . . GO KNIGHTS !

Millbrook Youth Hockey Association is forming a GIRLS team for the 2014-2015 Hockey Season.
This is a team for girls who are 12 and younger (12U) and are new to the game of hockey or have some experience. This team will be a recreational/house team with limited travel. The focus of this team will be to provide a positive and fun hockey experience that helps each girl to develop and improve as an athlete and hockey player. Other age categories could open (10U, 8U) if there are enough players in each age group.
Who can play?
Players do not need organized hockey experience, but should be able to skate and should have completed one or more sessions of “Learn To Play Hockey” (Mid-Hudson Civic Center, Millbrook, etc.).
What equipment is needed?
Each player will have to have a full set of ice hockey gear including hockey skates, shin pads, hockey pants, hockey pelvic protector (jill), shoulder pads, elbow pads, gloves, neck guard, helmet, mouth guard, and stick. You will also need to have hockey socks and a jersey for practice. MYHA will provide a game jersey and socks.
Players also need to be registered with USA Hockey and have a valid USA Hockey number (available at usahockey.com under “membership”). The USA Hockey membership fee is approximately $40.
What is the time commitment?
There will be one midweek practice and one or two weekend games each week from November 2014 through February 2015. Opponents will include local house teams (Ice Time, Saugerties, etc.), some girls only and some mixed teams.
Are there tryouts?
No, anyone may join. Feel free to come to our free open skate for girls and mites (8 and under kids) to see if you want to be a part of the Millbrook Girls Team. This event will be Thursday April 24 from 6:00- 7:15 at the Mid-Hudson Civic Center/ McCann Ice Arena, Poughkeepsie, NY. There is no fee for the free skate, but all participants must bring their own skates (and equipment & stick if they have it) and must present proof of current USA Hockey membership (available at www.usahockey.com under “Membership”).
How much will it cost?
The fee will be determined by the MYHA board of directors over the summer. The fee may be set somewhere between $700-$800.
Who can I contact for more information?
