Welcome to the 10,000 Pucks Challenge!
ACYHA wants you to keep shooting and improving, even when you're not on the ice! That's why we invite and challenge every player to join our 10,000 Pucks Challenge! Players take 10,000 shots over the course of the summer (June/July/August), get bragging rights and earn a cool, free t-shirt!

In WINGS Territory, it's Love Your Game
An organization's culture represents, "the way we do things here." During the 2017-2018 hockey season, ACYHA introduced a cultural theme: Love Your Game. Love Your Game expresses what it means to be the WINGS:
Success For All
ACYHA introduced the Love Your Game concept at parent and coaches meetings during the 2017-2018 season. To help build a foundation and share the excitement, each and every player in the Association, and all ACYHA coaches, received a Love Your Game t-shirt during the kick-off season.
Players and coaches wore their shirts with pride. They took team photos, traveled to other states and donned their shirts, and wore them for warm-ups and training.
The game of hockey is fun. Its players and families typically become a pretty tight-knit community. For ACYHA, the game also offers players, coaches, parents and others opportunities for important life lessons. Win with class, lose with respect. Play for team. Love Your Game.
In the following video, Hans Skulstad, HDC Chair, shares ACYHA's Love Your Game philosophy.
