Vision

Provide positive youth hockey experience for all players of all levels and ages (beginner thru midget) that will help them develop as individuals and develop a life-long enjoyment of the game of hockey.

Mission

NYH exists to offer a high quality, affordable opportunity to play hockey to kids in Needham and Dover.  NYH strives to provide age-appropriate and skill-appropriate player development and coaching.  We strive to build solid foundational skills as part of our in-house program, which enables us to have strong, competitive “A”, “B” and “C” level travel teams.

We will achieve our mission by learning from and leveraging recommendations from USA and Mass Hockey, by establishing clear goals, measuring our results, and adapting our program to meet the changing needs of players and families.
