Sign up for session 2 of Tiger Sharks and Learn to Skate


Sign up for session 2 of Tiger Sharks and Learn to Play which begins in mid November. House Hockey registration remains open!




The Stamford Youth Hockey Association teaches players to enjoy the game of hockey and improve their skills. Players learn sportsmanship, develop self-esteem, confidence, and build lasting friendships.

These youth programs offer opportunities for the whole spectrum of players who are just learning to play, looking to build skills and fundamentals in our local House Leagues, as well as those looking for the Travel Hockey experience. Boys and girls can start as early as four years old. Programs continue with both boys' and ladies’ teams through high school.

Available Programs:

Learn to PlayThe Tiger Sharks program is a learn-to "play" hockey for beginners and is open to boys and girls between 4-12 years of age. This introductory program will teach your child the basic skills of  stick-handling, passing, and shooting through ten 1-hour lessons. Players can receive full hockey equipment from the NY Rangers Learn to Play.

House Leagues: Boys and girls interested in ice hockey are invited to play on one of SYHA's House League teams! Teamwork, learning hockey fundamentals, sportsmanship, and developing self-esteem are stressed. The season runs from September to March. 1 clinic and 1 game per week in Stamford.

Travel Hockey: Boys and girls looking for a larger commitment to the game of hockey, Travel Hockey offers 2 practices and 2 games a week. Generally, 1 game is local, and the other game is in the tri-State area. Travel Hockey players also attend 2 away tournaments, which in the past have included locations like Montreal, Hershey PA, and Lake Placid. There are still some roster spots available for the U8 and U10 divisions in the Sharks program.

Come join the Sharks family!

Congratulations to long time SYHA Coach and Volunteer Greg Milburn who was the recipient of the 2019 Wellington Mara Award from the Mickey Lione Jr Award Fund 

The Wellington Mara Award recognizes an exemplary individual who volunteers time and talent to provide opportunities for youngsters in any city-sanctioned, nonprofits sports league in Stamford. The award includes a $2,500.00 contribution to the nonprofit organization for which the individual volunteers.  In creating a youth-coaching award, The Lione Fund continues to support and perpetuate the values that made Wellington Mara a legendary sports leader. He believed that the valuable qualities and lessons that can be learned on the field of play should, if well taught, carry over to all the all aspects of life. He taught by instruction but, more importantly, by example. The Lione Fund reinforces this ideal and these qualities in the naming of this award after Mr. Mara, who held himself to the highest standards of honor and respect for self, family, and community. 

"Greg Milburn has influenenced thousands of young people over the last 35 years by introducing them to the game of hockey at SYHA. He has been instrumental in developing first-time players through the Tiger Sharks program. By providing individual attention and encouragement, he has positively influenced our youth through sports and help fosted a strong bond with the community" The Mickey Lione Jr Fund


On behalf of SYHA, we thank you for all that you have done to instruct and inspire the young players of our community.
