2023-2024 Season Registration Now Open!
AYHA is excited to open registration for the 2023 / 2024 youth hockey season!  We look forward to see our returning players back on the ice and welcome as many new children as possible to the sport of hockey.  New this season is an early registration benefit that includes the options of an 8- or 9-month extended payment plans, a reduced registration deposit, and a summer gear swap for families that want to take advantage of gently used equipment.  Click for more info!

To get started, please click this Registration Link for step-by-step instructions.  We also have Financial Aid information for those families wishing to apply for a playership.

Early registration will allow you to take advantage of our extended payment plan options.  The AYHA recommends families select the option to pay the season fee utilizing monthly installments. If you register by July 1st, the fee is divided in 9 monthly installments, 8 monthly installments if you register by August 1st, and 6 monthly installments if you register by October 1st.   The final monthly installment is billed March 1st of 2024 for all of the above options.  If you have any questions regarding the registration process, please contact the AYHA Registrar at [email protected].

If you have more than one youth player registering this season, the AYHA is once again offering a multi-player discount, which you can select during the registration process.  Additionally, if this is the first full year of your youth player's participation in the AYHA, you can also select a 50% discount during registration.

Primarily due to Ohio University raising costs to rent ice for practices and games, Association registration fees have been increased this season.  The AYHA has attempted to keep them as low as possible, and the Association is planning robust 8U and 10U tournaments as well as other fundraising opportunities to offset costs as low as possible for upcoming seasons.

Important Information for Returning Players and Their Families
This year we will be introducing a monthly newsletter to keep everyone up to date on the season.

High school players - If your child is or will be turning 18 in 2023 or 2024, they will be required to complete Safesport through USA Hockey. Please make sure your child completes this as soon as they can, as they will not be allowed to play in games if it has not been completed. 

Past due amounts - When registering any past due amounts from prior seasons will automatically be added to this year's balance, with the expectation that balances will be paid in full by the end of this season. This will be the last season past due amounts will be allowed to be rolled over to the next year. Starting in the 2024-2025 season balances must be paid in full prior to registering for the season. 

If you have any questions regarding past due amounts, please contact the AYHA Registrar at heddlestone1[email protected]. Payments are currently able to be made on Active.

Thank you for your continued support of youth hockey in Southeast Ohio, and we look forward to seeing everyone soon.
