Why Hockey?

Stoughton Youth Hockey has been providing the opportunity for kids to learn the great game of hockey for over 50 years.

Hockey Teaches Kids a Lot More Than How to Skate

Hockey develops skills on the ice that build a foundation for a lifetime. In addition to athletic prowess, hockey promotes confidence, pride, focus, perseverance, mental agility and responsibility. With an emphasis on fun, hockey is a game to be played and enjoyed for life.

Set Up for Success

From learning to balance school, responsibilities at home, time at the rink and playing with friends, hockey encourages kids to learn time management skills that will later serve them in all facets of life. Hockey’s unique source of physical fitness promotes healthy living.

Rinks are warmer than you think

It takes cooperation, teamwork and respect to succeed on and off the ice. Hockey teaches those skills, while also creating new friendships. Starting with the bonds created in the locker room to the relationships formed on ice, hockey creates life-long friendships for skaters and parents. This camaraderie shared on and off the ice encourages teamwork and the natural development of leadership skills.

Lifetime Sport

Hockey is a sport you can keep playing long after you are no longer young. Skating is low-impact and adult hockey participation is on the rise.

Hockey is Fun

The thrill of carrying the puck up the ice on a breakaway, the exhilaration of scoring your first goal or making that amazing save is possible due to the encouraging environment hockey provides to try new things and grow as a hockey player and person.

Hockey is for Everyone

You don't have to be especially tall or especially large to excel. Boys, girls, tall, short, big, small — hockey players come in all shapes, sizes, colors and creeds.  

Screening a Goalie is Better Than Screen Time

Hockey gives children an engaging, fast-paced, healthy alternative to sedentary recreation.

Increased Psychical Literacy

Nothing tops skating for the development of two fundamental skills: balance and the ability to glide.
