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 approaching our 30th season in Winter 2017-18. 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 & Cutting Edge Ice Academy, among others. 

We compete against other elite programs in Long Island, Westchester, Connecticut & New Jersey, and our mission is to be the top hockey program in the country 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.

Building a lifelong love of hockey...

On Feb 11th, Taft played Deerfield, and North Park alums, Stuyvie Coleman, Dylan Nagle, Avery Coleman and Taro Sochi, battled it out to a 6-6 tie in the JV game. In the first period, Taft's starting goalie went down with an injury, and Stuyvie volunteered to put on the gear and play out the game in goal. Avery helped out his older brother with a couple of goals, including the game tying goal. Stuyvie, Dylan & Avery pictured.

North Park alums battle in New England Prep School contest

Nicholas Enders, Oli Paumgarten, Finn Carey, Justin Li, Sean O'reilly, Liam Carey, Chris Chachas. Missing from the shot: Rhys Foulke.
After spending countless hours on the ice growing up together from Mites to Bantams, some recent North Park alums chased each other around the ice, at Brooks School, in North Andover, Mass. It was the St. Paul's JV squad, which has five ex-North Parkers on the roster, vs. Brooks JV, which has three. Brooks won, 1-0.
