    PYHA Family’s

    On behalf of PYHA and its board of directors, Happy 2017!!!  I hope you are enjoying the 2016-17 winter hockey season?  I have enjoyed watching our numbers grow, but more importantly, I love watching our players grow!  If you are at the rink and have not thanked a PYHA coach or volunteer, please do so.  These people dedicate a lot of their time to your son or daughter.  Without our volunteers, PYHA would not be able to thrive. 

    We have received several emails and phone calls regarding the PYHA pictures.  We are fully aware of the situation and are currently working with the photographer on what our options are for each of you.  Once we have more information, we will certainly pass it along.

    As we finish up this season, I want to remind all families of Article XX “Zero Tolerance” of the PYHA policy; there will be no physical or verbal abuse by any individual, group or entity towards any on-ice official or off-ice official at any time before, during or after a game.  This includes, but is not limited to, shouting at referees, screaming at team players and/ or staff or yelling at team parents etc.  All violations of zero tolerance may result in (30) day suspension.  

    Lastly, the back locker rooms (Rec. rooms) are a place for players and parents to have more room when getting dressed.  We ask that you respect this space.  We have had several complaints from the arena management that players and parents are not cleaning up around them.  Please, do your part and more to keep that area clean.  We also ask that you limit to only one parent in the room at a time.  We have as many as 60-70 kids in there and when you bring in both parents and other siblings, it can be crazy.  Its not a playground, it’s a dressing room!!

    I wish all players/coaches the best of luck the remainder of the season!

    Chilis Give Back Program


    We all like to eat out on occasion, and we have the good fortune of being able to participate in the CHILIS GIVE BACK PROGRAM where 15% of your pre-tax purchase from Chilis in Peoria and East Peoria goes to benefit the PYHA!

    Also, if you end up going to any of these Chili locations and don't have this flyer with you, there is no need to worry, just mention it to your server and write "Peoria Youth Hockey" down on the bill when it comes!

    Forward the attachment to any family and friends in the area as the only requirement is to mention Peoria Youth Hockey to your server BEFORE paying the bill!
