About Dubuque Youth Hockey Association: 

Organized in 1979, the Dubuque Youth Hockey Association (DYHA) was formed as a nonprofit, volunteer organization to benefit the youth in our community. Learning the skills to play the game of hockey is the focus, but not the sole purpose of this organization. Youth development is our goal and our motto is “Keep kids out of hot water, put them on ice”. The DYHA is guided by a board of directors elected by the membership and is sanctioned by USA Hockey.

DYHA is structured to teach the four basic hockey skills of skating, stick-handling, passing and shooting, which facilitate the development of motor skills, hand / eye coordination, and quickness and endurance. Physical size is not an important factor in becoming a skilled and successful hockey player. Every player participates in the action, which is exciting and fast moving. Every level involves practices and competitive action. Each skater is encouraged “to do the best you can” by the coaching staff and to contribute to the success of the team. In doing so, each skater learns to win with pride and to lose with dignity.
