McDonough Youth Hockey
McDonough Youth Hockey follows a traditional hockey season schedule that starts in September and runs through late April/early May. We hold evaluations and start practices in August. We plan to finish the first half of the season before Thanksgiving break. The first half of the season will end with an All-Star game and skills competitions. We will take December and some of January off and start the second half of the season in February. We will have double elimination playoffs at the end of the season in late April, or early May. By following this format, our teams will remain together for the entire year. This helps to promote team cohesion and aids in the continued development of skills for each player and the team as a whole.
At the current time we have three house leagues. We have a Lower House: ages 5-11 and Middle House: ages 12-16. The placement of a player is determined age and more importantly by skill level. Adult League: 16 and up. Exceptions of age can be made by the MYA Board
Practices are held on either Saturday mornings or Sunday afternoons. Games are typically played on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays. We will have one or two Saturdays where we may play multiple games. Weather can be an issue and occasionally we may have a rain out. In these cases we may make-up games on Friday evenings. Depending on the number of rainouts, we may need to play on a Wednesday as well. The MYA Hockey Board will do its best in communication in a timely manner of any rain outs and make up games.
McDonough Hockey has chosen to partner with the Amateur Athletic Union and we are now an AAU Club Organization. This requires each coach and player to purchase a membership from AAU.

The McDonough Youth Inline Hockey Association (MYIHA) is a Henry County, Georgia hockey club that is a tax exempt, non-profit, family oriented organization in which every child who is a member can learn to skate and play the game of hockey.
MYIHA's objective is to teach skating skills and the fundamentals of the game, team effort, and good sportsmanship.
