About OYHA


OYHA is an independent non-profit organization created solely for the purpose of promoting youth hockey in the Ozaukee County region. OYHA is governed by the Wisconsin Amateur Hockey Association (WAHA) and USA Hockey. We are classified as a Division 1 level club playing in WAHA Region 5. All OYHA Club Teams (Squirt level and higher) are entered in regional playoffs to qualify for WAHA State Tournaments held in March. For information on WAHA divisions and regions click here.


Our philosophy is simple. The kids come first. Hockey is a great sport. It will be used to promote teamwork, character, integrity, the value of hard work, honesty, excellence and fun. Established in 1996, OYHA had a successful first year with 240 youth hockey players participating in our program. Two teams qualified for State Tournaments and our Mite Team won the WAHA "AA" State Championship! All players learned the game, developed their skills and had fun.


OYHA membership draws from within the governing borders of Ozaukee County. Existing OYHA members (as of 1996) who lived outside of Ozaukee County were grandfathered if they chose to do so. USM students who live within Ozaukee County may become members of Milwaukee Winter Club.
