2017-2018 Amherst Youth Hockey 
GIRLS ONLY ICE HOCKEY PROGRAM

 

 

NOW OPEN TO NON RESIDENTS

 

Amherst Youth Hockey promotes Girls Hockey at all levels of play and is now offering Girls Travel Teams at levels: 10U, 12U, 14U, 16U, 19U

 

For Girls Ages Beginner to Mite (8U), we follow the USA Hockey ADM model within our Novice I, Novice II, Micron and Mite levels, which is a co-ed, small-group-station practice model. 

 

For our girls at these levels [Novice/Beginner to Mite], we will be working to group the girls together on the ice during both practices and games. Our goal in doing this is to help encourage friendships and camaraderie specifically with our girls to help ensure they are having fun, all while learning hockey skills.

 

Our Mite (8U) Girls have the opportunity to participate in Girls Only “Jamborees” during the late winter/early spring. These are relaxed, tournament-style events coordinated with other organizations in the Western NY area that give girls in our area the opportunity to play and connect with other girls around Western NY in girls-only games.
