North Park Hockey Assocation is a private, non-profit youth hockey club based in New York City. North Park was founded in 1987 in Central Park, and we are proud to be heading into our 31st season in 2018-19. We offer programs from learn-to-skate through Bantam. Our learn-to-skate program is based at Bryant Park and runs from November thru February. Our travel teams (Mite, Squirt, PeeWee, and Bantam) play from September through May, with the exception of holidays, and we are grateful to be partnered with a variety of metropolitan New York City venues, including City Ice Pavilion, MacKay Ice Arena, Cutting Edge Ice Academy & Long Island City-ICE, among others. 

We compete against other elite programs in Long Island, Westchester, Connecticut & New Jersey, and our mission is to be New York City's leading hockey program focused exclusively on Mite through Bantam levels, while making a long-term commitment to our families to develop players from preschool through 9th grade. Our tryouts evaluate new players and make roster determinations for returning players. While we will address behavioral or attendance issues if necessary, we do not "cut" returning players based on an annual talent assessment. We have found players at these young age levels to develop at different rates, and over time, all will advance to a high level in our program. Our primary goal is to instill a lifelong love of hockey, which we believe is put at risk unnecessarily at this age with a more short-term mindset. 

We consistently produce graduates into AAA clubs and top high school teams. We accomplish our goals with a focus on coaching talent from the U.S. and overseas, as well as strength of commitment from our member families. We believe that there is ample competition within a 45-60 minute drive of Manhattan to develop talent at this age, so it is rare that we will travel outside of that radius to play games. We also encourage balance with the rigorous academic requirements in New York City schools, and with other extracurricular pursuits when not in peak season. Please note that North Park also offers a need-based financial aid program.

Mites Road Trip: Yale

Mites Rinkside for Yale vs Princeton

On Saturday, February 10th, our North Park Mites visited New Haven for a fun overnight trip to Yale. We divided up our Mites into two balanced teams to face off against the Yale Junior Bulldogs at Yale's beautiful Eero Saarinen-designed Ingalls Rink, aka The Whale. In the evening the Mites watched the Yale team defeat Princeton 7-2. Special thanks to the Simonds & Brooks families for organizing the trip, including special tours of the varsity locker rooms and the alumni lounge.
