A tradition continues- Amherst Youth Hockey’s Coaches Games just started The games are open to all Head and Assistant Coaches, Board Members and former AYH Coaches and Players. All ages and skill levels are welcome. We break up into white and dark teams and wear full equipment. There is no checking. We have ice time twice per week and the schedule is set through at least the end of March. If you are currently affiliated with AYH, you can sign up to play both nights for the whole season for $350, 1 night per week for $200, or if you want to try it or just play occasionally, it is $15 per skate. Rates are higher for former coaches and players. New guys and gals are welcome and are crucial to keep these skates vibrant. If you need more information, contact Dave Silverberg 870-4460
The schedule is posted on the website www.amherstyouthhockey.org Hope to see you in the locker room and on the ice Monday and/or Wednesday nights.
Just in time for the cool weather our apparel store is open. To view the store you can either click here or access it via the tab at the top of the page. There is something here for everyone in your AYH family!!!
