2022 18U Tier-2 BYHA Team

  • All practices and home games will be held at Family Ice Center in Falmouth
  • Games will be on Sundays in the MEAHA league from late August through early November (it will conclude prior to the start of the high school season)
  • We are expecting to have (1) 1:30 Full Ice practice each week beginning mid-August.
  • We are working to keep the total cost per player around $800 (includes 12 - 16 games, approximately 15 practices, uniform, and possibly a tournament) This fee has not been finalized.  The cost should be less than most if not all 18U travel teams.



8U Girls Supplemental Games

The BYHA 8U girls will not be a program, but we will set up games against other local associations that have 8U girls in their programs. These will be cross ice games and played for fun, when ice is available.

10U T4 Girls Supplemental Program - $275.00

The BYHA 10U girls program consists of 5 home games, 5 away games and a girls only tournament. This team is meant to be an introduction to girls hockey, and would be in addition to the coed program. The games would be scheduled so that they do not interfere with the coed schedule.

12U T4 Girls Program - $900.00

The BYHA 12U girls team will play in the MEAHA Tier 4 league against girls and occasionally coed teams from Casco Bay, Maine Inferno, Maine Gladiators, Maine Jr. Black Bears and the MidCoast Jr. Polar Bears. They will also play games against the Granite State Wild girls, Back Bay Girls and the newly formed Northwoods Witches, all from New Hampshire.

The 12U girls program will run as a 20 game, 40 practice schedule with 1 girls tournament.

14U Girls Program - $1,350.00

After a great 21/22 MEAHA season (15W, 1L, 3T and won the New England Bay State Tournament), Coach Bre Sanderson and the Jr. Nor’ Easters 14U Girls will be playing in the New England Girls Hockey League this coming season! The NEGHL is the strongest, most competitive girls and womens hockey league in the United States. The 14U girls team will play 20 home games, 20 away games, 40 practices (1 weekly skating/skills practice, 1 weekly team skills practice) and bi-weekly shooting clinics, as well as goalie training by Goalie World. They will also play in 2 tournaments. More information on this program will be released shortly.
