2018/2019 Goalie Training Vouchers

BYHA is again please to offer registered goalies (at all ages, full-time or part-time, beginner, experienced or never tried before) discounted training vouchers to attend private/semi-private training lessons with Coach Bryan "Mac" McDonald.  Whatever your level or interest, these vouchers are an excellent way to develop your skill or just experience what it is like to train as a goalie. Goalie vouchers are only sold in packs of 5 for $125 (regular price is $45 per lesson, so this is a $20 per lesson savings). We currently have a limitation to one set of 5 vouchers per goalie.  Depending on interest, additional sets may become available.

Vouchers expire July 2019.


If you are interested in goalie vouchers, please contact Brian Gregg at  The $125 charge will be added to your account and the vouchers will be e-mailed to you.

"Girls Night Out" Skills session

CP is hosting a girls night for all the local girls on Sunday, September 30 at the Union Arena in Schenectady, 930am for girls 10 and younger then another session at 1245pm for girls 12 and older. 

This is a free skills session and I'm hoping to have some Union women's players helping out. 

I would appreciate it if you would pass on the information to your organization and please encourage the girls to wear their Bethlehem jerseys to show their team pride! 

Thanks and I look forward to seeing them at the event!

BYHA Announces A/B team tryouts/evaluations


BYHA Announces “A/B” team tryouts/evaluations

All players interested in playing on a 10U, 12U, 14U or 18U team (A or B) are encouraged to attend player evaluation/tryout sessions. All sessions are at the Bethlehem YMCA.  Players who do not attend tryouts will not be guaranteed a roster spot. 

Any players attending tryouts that did not play with BYHA in their last season will need to bring an approved NYS Financial Release that they obtained from their previous organization before being allowed on the ice.  Additionally all players will need to provide a valid USA Hockey registration number.  If you have already registered (on-line) with BYHA you do not need to bring the USA Hockey registration number since it was already submitted during the registration process.

A tryout fee of $50 will be collected at the first tryout session.  (Pre-register for Tryouts and receive a $5 discount).  Players that are trying out for full-time goalies have the tryout fee waived. Players that are not selected for the A team after trying out are encouraged to attend B level evaluations for no additional fee. In the event that more than 18 players attend any A-Level tryout, the coaches have the discression to make cuts after the first night of tryouts; those players will be eligible to attent B-level tryouts.
