The Mission of the Manitowoc County Youth Hockey Association

The Mission of the Manitowoc County Youth Hockey Association (MCYHA) is to provide a safe, fun, and affordable hockey atmosphere. MCYHA emphasizes skill development, hard work, dedication to set goals, good sportsmanship and discipline.

These achievements are to be attained through the guidance of our youth hockey coaches, parents, and the Board of Directors.

The MCYHA serves girls and boys ages 4 to 14 that live in the school districts of Manitowoc, Two Rivers, Valders, Newton, Reedsville, and Cato.

MCYHA is a 100% volunteer organization. Parents manage the rink and the hockey organization on a volunteer basis, which keeps our costs low.

We invite you to join Manitowoc County Youth Hockey. We hope your child will have a fun learning experience while playing an exciting sport!

Manitowoc County Youth Hockey provides an opportunity for kids of any size and any skill level to be part of a team that builds skills and confidence on and off the ice.   Our goal is to provide the opportunity for all area residents to learn and enjoy the game of ice hockey,  providing for the maximum development of each participant. 

The Manitowoc County Youth Hockey Association, headquartered in Manitowoc, Wisconsin, is a non-profit youth organization affiliated with:

  • United States of America Hockey (USA Hockey)
  • Wisconsin Interscholastic Athletic Association (WIAA)
  • Wisconsin Amateur Hockey Association (WAHA Region 3, Division 4)


As a parent, you understand it is important for your child to get the most out of participating in youth sports. To ensure your child has an enjoyable experience, youth hockey aims to deliver the “Three Promises:”


The thrill of carrying the puck up the ice, the exhilaration of scoring their first goal or the camaraderie of skating with friends is possible due to the fun and encouraging environment youth hockey provides to try new things and grow as a person.


Youth hockey is unique because a new player must start from the very basics of essentially learning to walk again. Your local youth hockey program has instructors that are able to teach the sometimes challenging skills of ice hockey in a fun, engaging manner.


You will be amazed at the progress your child will make in a short amount of time. Both you and your child will walk away from the rink each day, excited about all the new things that your young hockey player has started to learn on the ice.
