Pueblo Youth Hockey Association (PYHA) is a non-profit youth hockey program offering hockey for kids 18 and under.  The mission of PYHA is to promote competitive youth hockey in the Pueblo community. PYHA will develop a program, which stresses yearly improvement and advancement in areas of individual skills and team play. The program builds self-esteem, discipline and character of our Pueblo Youth, while emphasizing positive sportsmanship

PYHA is made up and ran by volunteers from all walks of life.  From former hockey players, to teachers, business professionals and interested parents, we all share in the common goal of continuing and expanding youth hockey in Pueblo
PYHA is divided into 2 main categories, the U8 program and the main program. The U8 program is for children under 8 years of age and the main program is for children age 9-18. 
The U8 program includes 3 different skill levels of play: beginner, intermediate, and advanced. In the U8 program players are divided solely on their experience and skill levels so an 8 year old can be on a beginner team or a 6 year old could be placed on an advanced team.   The U8 program adheres to the regulations set forth through the American Developmental Modula (ADM) Program utilizing cross ice practices and practice stations facilitated through the use of several coaches on the ice during practices. U8 teams typically set up scrimmages for game experience and are welcome to travel to tournaments hosted by a number of associations. PYHA hosts the U8 Jamboree tournament, typically held the first weekend in March. 
Once a child turns 9 before the end of any given calendar year, he/she will then be moved up into the main hockey program. This program differs from the U8 program in its division based first upon age and then skill level. 
These are the divisions of the main program:
  • Squirt program for ages 9 & 10
  • Peewee program for ages 11 & 12
  • Bantam program for ages 13 & 14
  • Midget program for ages 15- 18
Our players are also welcome to try out for the Hornet Hockey team which is the local high school hockey team.   
The Squirt- Midget program has a regular gaming season where players travel around the state of Colorado playing other associations with membership into the Continental Divide Youth Hockey League (CDYHL). Teams can also choose additional travel for tournaments.
Hockey has a longer season then other sports typically running September through March, depending on age. We also offer a much shorter summer session lasting 6-8 weeks and featuring one practice/week enabling players to continue skating but encourging them to enjoy other summer activities as well.  
Hockey parents can find comfort in knowing that all of our coaches must be registered with USA hockey and CAHA and must also pass a yearly background check. Coaches are also required to take yearly classes, concussion training, and age specific modules. 
Please feel free to browse our site and see what we are all about.  If you would like more information about our program please feel free to contact Gena Frazier- administrator for the U8 program or Amanda Conant president of PYHA.
