by posted 08/16/2021

Registration for Waltham Youth Hockey In-House Programs are now open! These programs are a great way to introduce your child to the sport of ice hockey!

More information is available under the In-House FAQ. Please note that players under 4 should have a guardian helper / coach accompany their child on the ice. Please for the required certifications in order to be an on-ice helper / coach.

Mite Learn to Play (LTP)

Mites are children ages 5 to 8.  WYH has an In-House Mites program and a Travel Mites Program.

The In-House Mites skate at the Waltham rink on Totten Pond Road.  After a pre-season of skating and skill development, the players are assigned to teams in December.  The teams practice once a week and play a game once a week.   

In-House Mite players move up to travel teams in subsequent years.  The age requirements for travel Mites are the same as In-House Mites.

Tyke Learn to Skate (LTS)

The Tyke program is a learn-to-skate program.  Most of the children are between the ages of 4 and 6.  If your child is older and cannot skate, we suggest they start with the Tykes and then move up to the Mites as soon as they are ready.  Tykes start by first learning to catch their balance pushing a milk crate.  As skills progress, the players will move to other areas of the ice where the focus is on skating skills such as edge control, stopping, backward skating and agility.

The goal is to develop skills so that the player can move up to the Mite level.
