YOUTH HOCKEY

YOUTH HOCKEY IS BACK!

The goal of GYHL is to maximize skill development, overall athleticism, and character while having a ton of fun, so the player develops a passion for the sport.

Our non-checking, co-ed programs are here to make a change with utilizing USA Hockey’s American Development Model (ADM) as our framework. With ADM we will continue pushing for a system that favors inclusion and equal participation at younger ages. One that allows players to develop a passion and love for the game that will fuel their efforts throughout the rest of their career. One that creates more world-class players. Our ADM system provides age-appropriate guidelines so that players at all levels can maximize their development at each stage of the game, and stops the assumption that pushing the tactics of more advanced levels down to younger ages will bring about more desirable results.

Goleta Youth Hockey League is all about fun and fundamentals!
