HYHA Travel Hockey

Development Model

HYHA utilizes the USA Hockey American Development Model (ADM) and our program focus is on player development & enhancing all aspects of a players game. In addition to using USAH's ADM we further enhance that model by specializing in the hard and soft hockey skills. Through high volume, quality ice touches, players can expect to grow the hard skills at the base of hockey development (skating, shooting, etc). Through our program's unique model players will develop hockey IQ and the habits that will help them achieve greater success as they progress.

Our coaches are made up of former players from all different levels & experience, and our program is structured to allow our players to grow off the ice in addition to on ice development.

HYHA has competitive teams in all age brackets each year, families of each age bracket can expect:

  • Access to the top coaches in CT. Our coaches understand the game & are here to help mentor players both on and off of the ice.
  • Team practices twice a week as well as 2 weekly games.
  • Weekly skills sessions through our vendor partnerships.
  • Enhanced goalie work & ice time for our goalies.
  • Saturday Home Game Day each weekend.
  • Tournaments, both CHC and out of state, each year.
