We will provide a safe and positive playing environment for interested beginners and experienced youth hockey players to the Kinnelon, Butler, and Bloomingdale Community. We will promote the game of ice hockey through teamwork, sportsmanship, and playing the game the right way.
It's never too late or too early to start playing ice hockey. Two common concerns with youth hockey are safety and cost. Creating a safe and fun environment is core to ice hockey. USA hockey bans body checking until the age of 13 and coaches are required to take SafeSport training. Don’t buy into the myth that only kids from wealthy families can excel in hockey. KYHA aims to provide families from all financial backgrounds the accessibility to ice hockey. PRO TIP- "Neither the skates nor the stick make the player, especially at younger ages" USA Hockey
Kinnelon High School's ice hockey team was a powerhouse program culminating in a 2008 state title and 2013 Mennen Cup. Today, our high school program is joined with both Sparta and Jefferson to keep high school ice hockey programs alive. In 2023, the Kinnelon, Jefferson, and Sparta (KJS) varsity ice hockey team won their division in the Morris County Secondary Schools Ice Hockey league! As a proud ice hockey community, we will continue to support our team and continue the tradition.
