The LAYHA Board strives to keep registration rates as affordable as possible and has some of the lowest player costs in the state. 

LAYHA will continue to coordinate fundraising opportunities throughout the season and will be reliant on these funds. We hope everyone will participate as they are able, as fundraising is anticipated in our budget process.

Finally, LAYHA will continue to provide a multiplayer discount of $50 for every registered player after the first. This discount will be applied as a credit to your installment plan once all your players are registered.

LAYHA is registered in Vermont and operates as a non-profit organization.

The LAYHA Season

LAYHA is looking forward to a fun and competitive 2022-23 season .

LAYHA strives to provide 3 to 4 ice times per week for the older groups (14U, 12U, 10U and 8U Travel), which typically consists of 2 weekday practices and 1 or 2 weekend games. The 16U offering, for which this is our inaugural season, is intended for players who anticipate being on a high school roster and are looking for additional game experience. 16U will practice with LAYHA for the month or so prior to high school season and then typically have Sunday games with LAYHA while they practice on their high school squads through the heart of the season. 

House Mites will practice 2 times per week with game or scrimmage opportunities as possible in the latter part of the season. Mini Mites only practice twice per week.  The Learn to Skate program will be held once per week through the middle of December. Should there be enough demand and available ice time, a second Learn to Skate program may be held in the second half of the season. Learn to Skate players that wish to advance will also have the opportunity to sign up, at a pro-rated cost, throughout the season with another age and skill-appropriate group.

LAYHA's season will run from mid October through the end of February/first week of March.

LAYHA will provide a pro-rated refund or credit toward next year if for some reason the season is disrupted. No refund is available for players who chose to withdraw during the season.

Upon check out from the registration process, there is an opportunity to purchase registration insurance. This is an optional add-on made available by SportsEngine and insurance firm AIG. The offering is not connected to LAYHA . If you are interested in it, we encourage you to read the terms closely.

LAYHA and all of its members are required to abide by all guidelines and policies that might be put in place by VSAHA or USA Hockey, as well as operational guidelines from Fenton Chester Arena or any other rinks we may visit.
