Covid - 19 Updates

May 27, 2020 - Please find update from USA Hockey Mid-Am region.

Our 'return to play' is when we move in to the 'green' phase of the states re-opening plan.

Once we have a clear date of re-opening, we will reschedule programming that was cancelled.

We plan on rescheduling tryouts as soon as we have an idea of when we can reopen.

We look forward to seeing you soon!

 The Butler Valley Youth Hockey Association (BVYHA) is excited to announce that it will be joining forces with The Pittsburgh Hockey Academy, PHA Icemen and the Management of Frozen Pond Arena to bring to its members and the hockey community a more robust youth hockey program designed to promote a progressive developmental pathway and total hockey experience for players from the beginner and ADM levels through U18. 

Under the combined organization, the leadership team will be comprised of members from BVYHA, PHA and Frozen Pond Arena. Its youth hockey teams will be branded as the Pittsburgh Yetis, competing in the Pittsburgh Amateur Hockey League (PAHL), and the PHA Icemen, competing as high performance independent travel teams (Tier I AAA or Tier II AA) and/or participating and competing in high level national leagues. 

The refreshed look and feel reflects the organization’s commitment to making the Pittsburgh Yetis a preeminent youth hockey brand competing in PAHL, while providing a consistent look and feel with its high performance PHA brethren. From the modern new crest to the bold and clean look, the brand refresh projects strength and consistency. 

In addition to the new look and feel, our organization will also have the benefits of experienced and professional management, with a keen focus on player and coaching development including the Pittsburgh Hockey Academy Coaching and Training Staff, Off-Ice Fitness and Training Facilities and a clear progressive youth hockey development path for its players of all skill levels, all under one roof at the Frozen Pond Arena.
