Mission and Values
The Stamford Youth Hockey Association is one of the oldest youth hockey programs in the Tri-State area, established nearly 50 years ago. The league was founded on and maintains the principles that the Sharks are a family, and hockey should be available to all those interested, regardless of experience, abilities and socioeconomic status. The organization is one of the few that provides need-based scholarships irrespective of playing ability.
Our programs offer a full spectrum of opportunities beginning at age 4 and lasting through 19, with the Tiger Sharks/Learn to Play program, progressing into local House Leagues, and competitive Travel programs. Many of our players have continued their playing careers at the next level, many of whom have returned to their Sharks’ family as coaches and Board members.
