Blaine Youth Hockey Association (BYHA) is a structured organization affiliated with USA Hockey and Minnesota Hockey (MH). It is instituted to provide fun and development at various levels of hockey within a structured environment for the youth of the community. We will strive to keep costs at a reasonable level while providing each player with an opportunity to become the best player and person they can aspire to be. To accomplish this, BYHA provides an organization where youths ages 3-18, currently residing within the Blaine High School boundaries, can play organized hockey.
BYHA provides an Initiation Program (Mites) that provides the younger players with a place to have fun and learn the game of hockey. BYHA also provides additional levels as numbers dictate.
The Traveling Program provides for fun and development but is also competitive and requires more commitment and expense.

As the season comes to an end, just a few housekeeping reminders regarding BYHA equipment:
All jerseys and practice jerseys must be returned to BYHA.
Team Managers are responsible for collecting and returning all team equipment. Managers, please make arrangements to get all the game and practice jerseys from your players. Team managers are responsible for returning all game and practice jerseys - WASHED. Other equipment would include: water bottle racks if you took one (throw any bottles away ), puck bags/buckets, unopened medicine kits ( if opened keep them), and your team roster books. Please be respectful of your managers in their requests for your jerseys etc.
As far as Goalie equipment goes, I know some of the kids will like to check out the equipment for this summer which is fine but I would like to see the equipment and inspect for wear and tear before the summer. Any questions regarding Goalie equipment please let me know.
I am planning on being at the equipment room on March 7th and 8th between 9 -12 and March 14th between 9-12 to check in all equipment. Managers please email me with your team and what date works for you. If you have any questions feel free to contact me via email or cell 612.865.9778
