House Program

These programs offer a balance of practices and games for players with sufficient skills for team play.  Emphasis will be on development of individual, team, and skating skills. Games will be played against Empire Conference teams such as Batavia, Brockport, Canandaigua, Geneseo, Rochester, Webster and Monroe County & other PYH teams.

All participants in the house program must participate in the evaluation program.

10U and 12U House Red tryouts will be in the spring and all other House evaluations will be at the beginning of the season.

Hockey Operations will supervise these evaluations and collect the results.  These results along with the coaches needs, team make, and other considerations will be used in selecting the teams.   

Please understand that to be fair to all coaches and players, we may not be able to satisfy the ever-increasing number of requests we get each year to place players on the same team. The PYH Board of Directors reserves the right to approve all requests for team placement.

Program runs from Labor Day through March.  Teams will have 1-2 practices per week.  Players will receive off ice training at Next Level and Skills training sessions by RHA.  Tournament play will be decided by the coaches, typically 2-4 tournaments with 1 being out of town.
