Welcome to the Fox Valley Youth Hockey Association

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.

To the Fox Valley Blades family: Thank You!

We hope you and your skaters had a great season and we look to see you back next season!

Congratulations to all of our teams on a successful season!

And a very special note of appreciation to all of the members who helped administer the association, recruit and retain skaters and coach and manage the teams throughout the season.  We are a 100% volunteer association.  You are the reason for our continued success!

Please keep our mission in mind as you consider next year. We give kids ages 4 to 15 the opportunity to develop character, sportsmanship and teamwork skills through the sport of hockey.  We lead by example when we focus on the kids vs winning games. Never lose perspective.

Have a wonderful off-season!

Our Programs

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. 

What does it take to run the FVYHA?

Ever wonder what it takes to run your skater's youth hockey association?

Until I volunteered to be President, I never realized the time and dedication my fellow parents put into running this association for my son and me.  I always understood the incredible benefit that we both enjoyed.  However, I never realized the effort of my peers to make it happen.

During the season, I developed the attached Annual Operations Calendar.   It was created mostly for our board and coaches; however, I think you might find it informative on what our amazing volunteers do to ensure a positive experience for the children and efficient process for the parents.

We are a 100% volunteer association and we love all of our skaters and parents.  Please consider helping next season.  Contact anyone on the board if you're interested in assisting in our operational efforts.
