We employ the Active Networks online registration & payment system to register into SYHA's LTS/LTPH clinic.
The Active Networks (AN) system must be used to register for the season and make payment.  You can register and pay by credit card or bank account transfer using the link above.

Registration directions:
All new users to our online registration system (some of you) should register within the "New User" section of the system(link above).  If your child participated last season or you already have an older child registered in our travel hockey program then please use your existing login credentials and login into the "Returning Users" section of the system(link above) to register your LTS/LTPH player.  

Special Note: All participants in our LTS/LTPH clinic must first be registered with USA Hockey.  SYHA's registration system will first re-direct you to the USA Hockey website to obtain a USA Hockey confirmation number.  Once obtained, this number must be entered in our registration system to proceed through our registration process.  

Contact Dave Zraket 
with any questions or requests for scholarships.  We will not turn any child away that wants to learn to skate or play hockey.  

Somerville Youth Hockey Association provides an instructional level program for youth from ages 3-10 years old at Somerville's DCR Rink on Saturday mornings for the entire season. This is a great opportunity to put on a pair of skates and learn skating and hockey basics. There is no pressure to join a team, but children who are interested can move onto a team during the season or wait until next year to play.



LEARN TO SKATE – Elbow and knee pads, hockey helmet with face cage (no bike helmets) and hockey skates.  We do not supply helmets or skates.

LEARN TO PLAY HOCKEY – Elbow and knee pads, chest protector, shin guards, hockey helmet, hockey gloves, hockey pants, hockey socks, hockey protector cup.  We have some donated equipment to give out so come see us.  

(We do have some equipment bags for FIRST TIME PLAYERS only, first come-first serve)

PLEASE NOTE: that Somerville Youth Hockey requires all players from Mite level and up to wear white hockey helmets and red hockey pants. If you are buying new equipment and plan to join a team at a later date you should purchase team colors.
