The Fox Valley Youth Hockey Association (FVYHA)'s mission is to give youth ages 4 to 15 the opportunity to develop character, sportsmanship and teamwork skills through the sport of hockey. FVYHA is Wisconsin Amateur Hockey Association (WAHA) Division II (Region 3) certified. The Association offers instructional and competitive hockey opportunities for students in Neenah, Menasha, Hortonville (Greenville is in the Hortonville District), and Shiocton School Districts. FVYHA also supports students in Winneconne, an open district.
Fox Valley Youth Hockey is a 501c3 organization that operates as an all-volunteer PARENT association led by a Board of Directors elected by its membership. Each year elections take place the first two weeks of February. Up for election this year are Vice President, Secretary and Registrar (each for a two year term) and all age directors from U6-U14 (who each serve a one year term). The new board begins its work on April 1, 2019.
NOW is the time to consider running for a position: The deadline to declare interest and get on the ballot is Jan. 15. Read the position descriptions here and reach out to a current board member with questions about any position you may be interested in.
If you are interested in running for an open position you must officially declare your interest in running for a position (by email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line: "Intent to run for the office of <position>") by Jan. 15. This is a first (and required) step for running for a board level position; though it does not commit you to run (just states that you are interested). After Jan. 15, interested candidates will be asked to submit a bio to be published on the website and ballot by Jan. 22.
Additionally, the following essential positions (1-year term) will be open: Fundraising Director, Sponsorship Director, Website Administrator, Volunteer Coordinator and Growth Coordinator.
Photos are ready! Families can go to www.jgoniaphotography.com/shop/fvyha to view the photos and place their orders.
Please note: On the order confirmation page there is a form to fill out if you’ve ordered memory mates or hockey cards that gathers the information needed to complete those orders. Please be sure that is completed at the time of order.
Also, the Annual Program is now available at TCIA!
Blocks of times by Age group will be placed on the calendars for Mandatory Volunteering in order to run the upcoming 3 Tournaments. Please speak to your Team Manager or Age Director with any questions. DIBS are posted.

Our hockey program follows the principles of USA Hockey's American Development Model (ADM) to develop each player in a positive and proactive environment for learning.
Our programs include a free “learn to skate” program focusing on teaching the basics of hockey skating for ages 4 and above, a Mite cross-ice program for the U6 and U8 skater, and competitive travel hockey teams at the Squirt (U10), Peewee (U12), and Bantam (U14) levels.
The Introductory Program is our “learn to skate” program focused on teaching the basics of hockey skating. This program runs in two 8 week sessions (one starting in October, and the second starting in January). You can attend either one of the sessions or the full 16 weeks.
This program is for brand new skaters (ages 4-8). While the first 8 week FVYHA session is free, there is a USA Hockey registration fee of $50 for children over 6 years of age. Rental equipment is available, if needed, for $50. Any sessions after the 1st session are $50 each. Email IP@fvyha.com for more information!
