Youth Hockey at its BEST.
Developing athletes, who are competitive, prepared
Come and play for Shaker Heights Youth Hockey–

The Shaker Youth Hockey Association (SYHA) is a parent run, non-profit organization that has provided high quality, competitive and affordable hockey for 30 plus years in partnership with the City of Shaker Heights, Ohio. Our teams are highly competitive and we draw families from not only Shaker Heights but many surrounding communities.
We are a strong program dedicated to teaching players the game of hockey from Mighty Mites to the Bantam level. We pride ourselves on fostering well rounded athletes – “real hockey players” both on and off the ice. Players are prepared both physically and mentally for any high school in the area. We create a positive experience so players will continue to grow, develop a love of the sport and play from youth to adulthood. Many of our players stay together from Mites all the way through High School, resulting in Division Champions, Playoff Champions, Regional Titles, trips to Nationals and High School State Championship Teams.
We field 2-3 teams at all levels from Mighty Mites to Bantams
Provide ice times at least 4x a week at all levels (late August – March)
Play 30-50 games in the season depending on level, resulting in approximately 125 hours of ice time – as many as any other program in the city
