    Pre-Tryout Camp and 3 on 3 Information


    The 2016 Tiger Camp will be held the week of October 3rd. 

    All players are encouraged to take advantage of this FREE camp provided by our high school coaching staff. Coaches will be conducting skill and competition drills to allow players to acclimate back to the ice, assist with skill development and prepare players for tryouts. The same drills used during the clinic are used during the tryout evaluation process. This allows players to fully understand the drills, feel comfortable with the tryout format and give all players the same advantage during the evaluation process.

    Please note that schedule already attached below tries to accommodate many conflicts with other clubs, sports and community events; however, it is impossible to avoid all scheduling conflicts. Players are encouraged to participate in another time slot listed if they have a conflict.

    3 on 3 League

    NRYHA we will be hosting a 3 on 3 league in September (see attached "Fall Schedule" document. Players will be participating in small games (cross ice) to increase levels of competition and skill development. Small games are a great way to increase skill while allowing players to have fun. These small games are used in many higher level programs (HS, college, and NHL) since they promote situations that induce quick thinking and allow players more opportunities to possess the puck and make hockey plays as opposed to full ice games. We strongly encourage participation to help your son/daughter prepare for the upcoming season while having fun.

    Upcoming Community Opportunity - ProActive Coaching

    The Baseball, Basketball, Football, and Soccer associations have collaborated to bring a speaker to New Richmond from the ProActive Coaching organization.  Lori Thomas, Commissioner at Heart of America Athletic Conference is a speaker/presenter with  Proactive Coaching (see attached bio). She will be coming to New Richmond on Sunday, August 28th and offering three different presentations to the groups we work with every day.  While our four clubs are promoting and encouraging all of our members to participate- we would like to invite all NR youth sports organizations to take advantage of the learning and growth that is sure to emerge from these sessions.   All three sessions will be held in the New Richmond High School Auditorium on Sunday, August 28th and while these individual presentations are targeting specific groups- feel free to sit in on any/all of them!

    Session 1  (12:00 PM) is specifically designed for COACHES.  Lori will present "The Impact of Trust" in order to help coaches recognize the value of team culture and developing a sense of trust between players, coaches, and parents.

    Session 2 (1:30 PM)  is for PARENTS called "The Role of Parents" and will offer insights on how parents can help to support their athletes in proactive, positive, and productive ways while pointing out some of the challenges parent behavior can present for both athletes and coaches.

    Session 3  (2:45 PM) is for the ATHLETES themselves. Here Lori will discuss "Life Lessons" that are gained through a youth sports experience.

    Special thanks goes to The Centre, First National Community Bank, and Westfields Hospital who have collectively donated nearly $1700 to help offset the costs of the event.  The New Richmond Baseball, Soccer, Football, and Basketball clubs are also co-sponsoring the event, and we would like to thank those board presidents for collaborating and making this opportunity a reality. 

    The New Richmond Youth Hockey Association encourages all coaches, skaters, and parents to take advantage of this unique chance to dialogue about how we as a community can maximize our potential to develop all facets of a strong athletic culture.  Attached is a flyer with details about the event. 

    If you have any questions, contact any of the board presidents listed on the flyer.  Thank you and hope to see many of you there!


    S.K.A.T.E. Banquet a Success


    This year's S.K.A.T.E. banquet held in the high school commons on Thursday, March 31 was a success based on comments of individuals involved. While our skaters were recognized for taking care of business in the classroom, Coach Unger also recognized Minnesota Gopher skaters for their participation in the classroom as well as on the ice. Both New Richmond and Gopher skaters were treated to pizza prior to the awards ceremony. 

    Pictures from the event can be found on the SKATE page of the website.

    SKATE recognizes our players who excel in the classroom as well as on the ice. In order to be part of the program, players need to earn a 3.0 cumulative GPA during the hockey season.

    If you have any questions, please contact Ryan Unger at (
