Mid Fairfield Youth Hockey Association (MFYHA) is dedicated to the development and education of boys and girls looking to further their skills and the love of ice hockey in a highly competitive environment. Our goal is to promote team play, a competitive spirit, good sportsmanship (on and off the ice) and to provide children with the opportunity to develop at every level.
MFYHA is a Tier 1 AAA USA Hockey organization and is a long standing member of the Connecticut Hockey Conference (CHC) and more recently as a scheduling partner with the Eastern Hockey Federation. We are recognized as one of the premier programs in the USA Hockey New England District and across the country, sending 13 teams to the National Championships since 1999.
Our Mite program features a top rated Beginner program for kids new to the game who want to learn the game in a fun environment. We also offer Mite Travel Hockey at the Mite A, Mite B and Mite C levels. The primary goal of our Mite Travel program is to develop fundamental hockey skills and knowledge with a heavy emphasis on instructional practices and weekly games.
Our Tier 1 Boys Teams compete at Squirt Major to Bantam Major ages and routinely send teams to the USA Hockey National Championships at the PeeWee Major and Bantam Major ages.
Our Mid Fairfield Connecticut Stars Girls program fields teams at the U12, U14, U16 and U19 levels. We take enormous pride in our ability to attract great players from great families, who love the game of hockey and the opportunities it creates for exciting academic achievement, friendships and fun. We have excellent relationships with some of the best coaches in the region and leverage this talent into an outstanding development experience for our girls. Players from our Girls program have gone on to skate with top Division I and Divsion II prep schools in the area and have had successful careers with leading Division I and Division III college programs.
Our Tier 1 Midget teams compete at both the U18 and U16 age groups and are consistently ranked among the top teams in the state, in the region and on a national level.
