About Us

The Valley Youth Hockey Association (VYHA) is a non-profit organization that provides competitive youth hockey for 5 to 18-year-old boys and girls in the Roanoke Valley. The programs offered are designed for all levels of time commitment, cost and ability. Financial aid is available to help those that demonstrate need. VYHA’s teams skate at the Berglund Center as well as the Lancerlot Sports Complex during the fall and winter months. Valley Youth Hockey is an affiliate of USA Hockey and belongs to the Potomac Valley Amateur Hockey Association (PVAHA) and plays in the Carolina Hockey League (CHL). VYHA has drawn players from all over the Roanoke Valley and surrounding areas since the 1960s. We are a proud partner with the SPHL's Roanoke Rail Yard Dawgs.


VYHA seeks to teach and promote youth ice hockey and provide a fun, safe, challenging environment that encourages players to reach their potential. We work to develop individual and team skills, responsibility and sportsmanship, and offer programs to suit every level of ability.



Valley Youth Hockey is always looking for volunteers in many areas. Please submit the form below and we will be in touch with opportunities we have that you may be able to help with.
