MYHA is a non-profit, volunteer organization that relies on time, talent, and treasure from its membership and from the community at large. From time to time there will be specific items needed to help improve the experience for skaters, coaches, and/or families. We will list those items here.
Updated Sept 2017
Cabinet for storing equipment used for both on ice and dry land training equipment. Approximate size will need to be 8' by 6' by 3'. Please contact Bob Weir if you can donate, purchase, or build.
Thank you for supporting MYHA
The building has been outfitted with new flooring, and the antiquated buffer needs to be replaced with a more up-to-date machine. Contact Brent Miller, if you can help with this provision.
We are trying to build our inventory of skates and gently used hockey equipment. We could especially use hockey equipment in the smaller sizes so younger players have access to equipment the days they want to try playing in net.
If you have skates or gear you would like to donate to MYHA please contact Keila Drout or Bob Weir.
MYHA could always use extra pucks. If you are looking for something small and easy to contribute to the experience for kids, help to put some pucks out on the ice.
A Puck Locking Bucket would also be useful.
Contact Bob Weir if you can help.
Cash donations or contribution of team trophies.
Please contact Kari Berthiaume if you are willing to donate cash for participation awards, team trophies, or sponsorship for the end-of-the-year banquet.
As an example of the sort of instruction we desire:

She is the Director for the Pro Edge Power hockey camps and the Learn to Skate program at Highland Park Arena. She has also trained players in the NHL, AHL, NCAA, USHL, and NAHL. Diane uses her knowledge of balance, edges, and body positioning to create the most explosive and powerful hockey players. Most importantly, players enjoy the approach Diane and her expert coaching staff of qualified professionals at Pro Edge Power hockey camps use during the training sessions. Players always look forward to enhancing their skating skills and HAVING FUN!!
