Seattle Youth Hockey Assist was created to help youth and junior hockey players in the greater Seattle area keep their skates on the ice.

We believe in paying it forward to the next generation of Seattle hockey players by bringing together people and businesses in our community.

The challenges faced in hockey teach children valuable life lessons and skills including leadership, hard work, dedication, and self-confidence.

All kids should be given the opportunity to develop healthy lifestyles, no matter the financial, physical, or language barriers that may exist!

The funds raised through our events, and from your in-kind donations, provide hockey scholarships to families in need, and to subsidize clinics for kids who wouldn’t otherwise be able to participate.

Each year we have been able to raise more money to help our community of hockey players because of YOUR SUPPORT!

The losses from the tragic accident are felt throughout the hockey community…the players’ lives, the coaches’ lives, and the bus driver’s life.

Junior hockey is a unique experience helping to shape so many people, its something none of us former players would ever change. Everyone involved from parents to billets, from coaches to training staff, from our bus drivers to off-ice officials, create the special life of being a junior hockey player.

Our thoughts from SYHA are with the families, friends, and communities of the lives lost.

They will never be forgotten…

Because Hockey is More than Just a Sport!
