SCYHA Mission

St. Cloud Youth Hockey Association will strive toward providing all members with a positive growing environment, which enhances a competitive spirit defining sportsmanship and respect for others through the sport of hockey.


2024 Summer Shot Club

We want to challenge your skater this summer! Don't let them tell you they have nothing to do, have them work on their shot with the 2024 SCYHA Summer Shot Club.

Kickoff Event

We will have a kick off event on June 3rd at the MAC. 7:30pm meet in the lobby for some direction and pick up your tracking sheet. From 8-9pm we will have ice and coaches available. Let them get a start on their shots that night. Stay for 5min or the whole hour, but this is not a time to race around and "play" on the ice. This time is to be used to get shots in and get guidance and correction for making a good shot. If your skater will go on the ice they are required to have: helmet, skates, and gloves.

Shot Club Registration

We are asking that you register your skater as a participant. This will be used in a couple of ways. Biggest one is they must be registered as a participant to be considered for the prizes at the completion of the challenge. Also so we can have a list of kids to reach out to with tips, reminders, and more potential ice events.

Tracking Sheets

Attached you will find your skaters tracking sheets, be sure to print off your age appropriate sheet, or come see us at the kickoff event to pick one up. These sheets are a guideline and tracking tool. Maybe one day your skater can only get 50 shots in and the next day they 150, that is fine.  

If you can't make it to the Kickoff event, no worries the sheets are attached to be printed off. 

Submission

Completed and PARENT SIGNED sheets must be turned in by end of day September 19th, to be eligible for the player prize of custom choppers and their name put into the grand prize drawing.  Sheets can dropped of at the MAC in Amanda's mail box or emailed. Parents, please help hold your child accountable. This will only help them get better if they put in the work and they are taking quality shots. All completed challenges that meet the requirements will be entered into the drawing that will happen during the SCYHA Fun Day, date September TBD. 


Schedule a Scrimmage

St. Cloud Youth Hockey Teams will be formed by October 18th. If you would like to get a scrimmage on your schedule with one of our teams, please contact our Ice Scheduler, Tory VanHalbeck. We look forward to Scrimmaging your team!

Cold Dry Hands?

Great article about how useless a short bench is in youth hockey. Please encourage all to read! "The game is for the kids, all of the kids. Research nationwide tells us that players would rather play on a team that wins 50% of their games than sit on the bench of a championship team with little or no playing time. The bottom line is that all of the kids want to play."
