BYHA Blaine Youth Hockey

Mission Statement
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.

Blaine/Spring Lake Park Girls Co-op

Blaine / Spring Lake Park Co-op Families,


The Board of Directors of the Blaine Youth Hockey Association and the Spring Lake Park Youth Hockey Association are pleased to announce a five year co-op agreement for the girls program beginning with the 2017-18 season.


At the end of last season, the second of our loosely structured girls co-op, the Board of Directors of both associations gathered and analyzed parent and skater feedback, current and projected participation numbers, team numbers and sizes, on and off-ice development and other ancillary data. The feedback and data solidly concluded that continuing the co-op was in the best interest of the girls playing hockey in our shared community.


Both Boards will work together over the next few months to draft and adopt a written agreement that will contractually co-op our two association’s girls programs for the 2017-18 through the 2021-22 seasons.


As a result of the long-term co-op agreement, both Boards now feel comfortable moving forward with the expense of rebranding jerseys. Beginning this winter the U8 team will wear a co-op jersey while both Boards collaborate on the design and purchase of home and away co-op jerseys for all teams for the 2017-18 season.  In the interim, a Spring Lake Park patch will be added to the breezer covers and a Blaine and Spring Lake Park sticker will be added to the helmets.


The Board of Directors of the Blaine Youth Hockey Association and the Spring Lake Park Youth Hockey Association thank you for your continued support of the girls co-op.


Please contact a Girls Traveling Director with any questions.
