Summer Skates and Tryouts for 2017-2018 Season

Registration is now open for Jr. Steelheads summer skates and tryouts.  Register HERE


The summer skates provide an opportunity to get the kids on the ice together in preparation for the upcoming season. While these are not tryouts, the summer sessions also provide the coaches a chance to evaluate the kids. The cost for the summer skates is $40 for all four sessions. The drop-in price is $20 per session. The cost is based upon our assumption that we will have decent participation. If we don’t get enough sign-ups, we might have to cancel some ice so if your player is able to attend we would appreciate you signing up as soon as possible.


As for tryouts, please note that we initially had August 9 as a tentative date. There will be no tryouts on August 9. Rather, as set forth below, tryouts are scheduled for August 6, 12 and 13. It will be expected that your player makes tryouts. However, we understand summer plans may make that difficult. If your player is going to miss any of the tryouts, please communicate with the ‘A’ coach in that age group.


The ‘A’ coaches are as follows:

Squirt: Zane Palmer

Peewee: Terry Letourneau

Bantam: John Howell

 Midget: Adam LaBarbera and Kevin Burns.

  Welcome to the Junior Steelheads!

BYAHA is the parent organization of the Junior Steelheads youth hockey teams and is a member of the Idaho Amateur Hockey Association and USA Hockey. BYAHA is a 501(c) 3 not-for-profit organization. The Boise Youth Amateur Hockey Association is a competitive travel ice hockey program serving the Treasure Valley. Located in Boise, Idaho, the Junior Steelheads are currently seeking young individuals in all age groups for their upcoming hockey season. Teams are being formed for the following levels: Squirt (8-10 years of age), Peewee (11-12 years of age), Bantam (13-14 years of age), U16 (Under 16 years of age) and U18 (Under 18 years of age). 

Competitive travel hockey is an exceptionally rewarding experience for youths. The Junior Steelheads program gives some of our community’s most talented and committed young men and women the exposure and opportunity to develop their skills while representing the Treasure Valley. And hockey is teaching our kids so many valuable life lessons such as discipline, teamwork, leadership, and accountability. Our mission is to provide and implement a positive learning environment for young players to gain the maximum benefits of participating in a competitive sports program. We believe in challenging them to embrace school academics, demanding dedication to sportsmanship as individuals and teammates both on and off the ice, enhancing skill development, developing good work habits, helping them set goals and plans to reach those goals. Our goal is to develop great people as well as players. We believe in setting and achieving goals, not just scoring them!
