North Park Hockey Association, Inc. 

New York City, New York 

Youth Travel Ice Hockey  |  Since September 1987

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 down the homestretch of our 30th season. 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 Chelsea Piers’ SkyRink, 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.

Let's Go North Park!

Andrew Nawn Service Award

Coach Andrew Nawn Accepts Service Award from Coach Earl Rix

In recognition of Andrew Nawn's TWENTY years of volunteer coaching service to North Park, we have established the Andrew Nawn Service Award to be given to volunteers who make an exceptional contribution to North Park. Andrew coached our youngest players, helping literally thousands of North Park players learn to skate, stickhandle and shoot, in our 6 & under Developmental Mites program. Coach Earl Rix presented the award to Andrew on February 2, 2017 at a reception attended by several "generations" of the North Park family, including past and present coaches, commissioners and players. Andrew, we sincerely appreciate the incredible contributions you have made over the years, in teaching our children both hockey skills and life lessons, and we hope to bring you out of "retirement" on occasion in the future.

North Park Wins Another Silver Stick Banner

North Park Squirts Blue and White both had successful runs at the Squirt B New England Regionals for Silver Sticks in Norwich, CT.

In the end, our Blue team advanced to the finals, but finally ran out of steam against a strong Western Colonials Squirt Major team from Danbury, CT. Congrats to both teams for the strong performances and to Blue for bringing home a Silver Stick Finalist Banner!
