    Welcome to the Shaker Youth Hockey Association

    Although success at the team and individual level is important, SYHA places significant emphasis the development of student-athletes of all levels of ability.   SYHA promotes long-term athlete and child development by providing on-ice and off-ice training opportunities that allow each player to maximize his or her potential in a competitive learning environment, while providing positive lessons that allow them to excel in life.  We believe very strongly in citizenship, sense of community and sportsmanship.  SYHA is committed to helping boys and girls make big strides on and off the ice as athletes, students and members of our community. 

    Message from the Director

    It has been my pleasure over the past few months to get to know the players and families of Shaker Youth Hockey Association. I am proud to be part of a community that places the right values on playing team sports. Winning and being competitive is important, however teaching the life skills of teamwork, commitment, respect for all and the camaraderie of being part of a community are values that will serve our children a lifetime. Please enjoy the link below and listen to the live On-Point NPR interview. It is worth the time, knowing that we are continuing to build a strong community of fine young athletes without buying into to the trend of "club sports”.  Enjoy, and know that I am always here to answer questions. Also, watch for a spring survey I will be sending out soon! 

    In the spirit of the holiday season, I wish you a peaceful time with your families and safe travels. 
    See you at the rink,


    Congratulations to the Mite Red 1 Team. 2017-18 Silver Sticks Champions!

    Congratulations to Mite Red 2 Team. Dick Jones Memorial Mite Tournament Champions!

    Baseline Concussion Testing 2017

    For athletes that were not able to attend the baseline concussion testing days last month, you can still have your child tested. University Hospitals is offering individual testing for those that would like to have their child tested. This is an extremely valuable test that helps health care professionals assess your child in the unfortunate circumstance of receiving a concussion. The test should be administered every two years. All ages are eligible. 

    For now, you can call 216-844-3422 to schedule an appointment. You will need to make sure to say that you are looking for baseline concussion testing and that your son or daughter is a Shaker Youth Hockey Association player (otherwise you will be charged the full amount of $250). The cost is still $80 for SYHA players. You will need to pay $30 of that costs and SYHA will pay the additional $50. Prior to your scheduled baseline testing, you will still need to make the $30 payment on the link below. 

    If you were able to have the test but have not had the chance to pay yet, please use the link below. The cost of the test is $30 per athlete
