Welcome to the New Richmond Youth Hockey Association Web site. Our youth hockey association provides boys and girls in the New Richmond, Wisconsin area the opportunity to participate in the great sport of ice hockey.
The tournament dates for the 2018-2019 season are set. Please note that some of our tournaments start on Thursday for teams that are close to us.
Our Tournaments page will have further information.
As we prepare for the upcoming season, we hope that those who have refereed in the past will be returning again this season. We are also hoping to recruit additional refs for the season and years to come. A link to the Wisconsin Hockey Officials Association (WHOA) site listing upcoming seminars is listed below:
We encourage you to sign up as soon as possible as the clinics fill up quickly.
Ryan Kelly has been appointed by the NRYHA BOD to serve as the referee scheduler for the season. We ask that all interested referee's send an email to Ryan at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include your contact information and the level you are certified to referee. If you are new, please include what seminar you will be registering for. Feel free to reach out to Ryan with any questions.
We are looking forward to a great season and we appreciate your consideration in returning or joining our team of referees!
New Tiger Uniforms
As you all know, we need new uniforms! The cost has come down exponentially since we last invested in jerseys over 10 years ago. The Association understands any increase in fees may be a concern to our members, so a jersey committee was formed that researched many options to address our needs now and in the future. The research also included an evaluation of vendors, costs comparisons with other associations, and design options.
During our research, we found that many associations require players to purchase their own jerseys annually. These associations have experienced many benefits from this method. Some benefits include members always have newer jerseys, their members prefer to keep their jerseys, and the fees are minimal. We will be adopting a similar uniform process that we feel is right for NRYHA.
Each player will purchase jerseys every two years starting in 2018. This year, the cost will be $136 ($56 jerseys, $21 socks) per player. The fee will include one home, one away jersey, and one pair of socks. Please note that the uniform fee will need to be paid in-full at the time of fitting and ordering night (TBD). Jersey fees cannot be included as a part of any payment plan.
To help reduce the impact of uniform fees, a $56 jersey fee (1) will be added to the player registration fees each year after this year (2). This will be applied towards replacement jerseys(3) every two years (1 home jersey, 1 away jersey).
1. Please note Mite In-house players will be not be charged the fee.
2. All first year Squirt/U10 or new players to the association will pay the initial jersey fee and the uniform fee will be added to their registration fee after they complete their first year.
3. Hockey socks will not be provided after the initial year. Each player will be required to purchase association approved socks.
The Board of Directors selected Strauss Hockey as the preferred vendor for providing our uniforms. Strauss will be conducting two fitting sessions for all players. Please plan on attending one of the fitting sessions to be fitted properly for your player’s uniform. Session dates and times will be communicated in the coming weeks. Jerseys and socks will be ready at the start of the upcoming season.
How Players Select Numbers
To avoid duplicate jersey numbers, we will be adopting a jersey number selection process similar to many other associations in the area. Jersey numbers will be assigned based on birth year. Odd birth years will select odd numbers and even birth years will select even numbers. Each player will be asked for 3 number choices (to be provided at the fitting sessions) and the Association will evaluate and appoint a jersey number based on availability and player choice. To avoid duplicate numbers in the future all players will keep their assigned number for their entire NRYHA career (excluding high school).
Now we need YOUR help!

Own a Piece of Tiger History
Existing jerseys will be available for sale over the summer on a first come first serve basis. Further details on how to purchase will be communicated in the coming weeks. All proceeds will be donated to the Blue Line club and to the new jersey fund to help reduce costs.
During the summer months, Board of Directors meetings will be held at 6 pm every third Wednesday of the month at the Angela Olson Law Office. Any association member is welcome and encouraged to attend.
The NRYHA Board would like to thank everyone who took the time to complete the year-end survey. We recognize there are things we can improve on, and we appreciate the input and feedback. We will take the input as we prepare for the upcoming season. It should also be noted that we increased the number of responses this year and our hope is to continue to increase this every year.
Registration information for the NRYHA 2018-2019 season will be posted when available.
