Summer Skates and Tryouts for 2017-2018 Season

We have scheduled our 2017 summer skates and tryouts for the 2017-2018 season.

Summer skates: July 9, 16, 23 and 30

The purpose of the summer skates is to give the kids a low-cost opportunity to get on the ice this summer and to begin working toward the upcoming season. While the summer skates are not tryouts, the coaches will utilize the summer skates to continually evaluate the kids. Each skate is 75 minutes and will be Sunday afternoon on July 9, 16, 23 and 30. The specific times for each age group will be set forth on the website. The skates total 5 hours of coached, age-specific training for $40. We are simply dividing the cost of the ice by our target numbers. The key is to get kids to sign up and attend the skates or we will be forced to cut back of some of the sessions. If you do not sign up and only want to pay per session, it will be allowed at a cost of $20 per session.

Tryouts: August 6, 9 and 13 (the 9th is tentative)

We have scheduled three tryout sessions for each age group for August 6, 9 and 13. Please note that the 9th is tentative and that session may be moved to a weekend. The tryout fee is $25 and is a mandatory fee as part of the upcoming season. Players are encouraged to attend all tryouts. If a player is not going to make all tryouts, they must communicate with the “A” coach (coaches are expected to be named by the end of May) or the Hockey Director. We will set up a table for jerseys and spirit wear orders during tryouts and coaches and board members will be on hand to field any questions that you may have regarding the upcoming season. It is expected that teams will be posted no later than August 17.

We are looking forward to a successful 2017-2018 season!

  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!
