Prescott Youth Hockey Association

Arizona's Finest Youth, Adult & Tournament Inline Hockey

2019 Spring Tournament

Individual Honors from the 2019 Spring Youth Tournament

8 and Under

Most Valuable Player

Julian Horn

Lava Monsters

The 'jewel' had much more than his game face on for the tourney as his 16 point total was way too much for the opposition to handle with Julian leading his Lava Monsters to the 8u title.

Outstanding Playmaker

Carter Pickett


The 'Wicked Pickett' certainly was wicked at the tourney, turning on his playmaking magic and garnering more assists (4) than any other player in the division & showing huge moxie.

​Outstanding Goalie

Aaron Aguilar

Lava Monsters

Goalie Aaron made all the right saves when it mattered most for his Lava Monsters while at the same time garnering the top save avg (69%) & leading his team to the 8u team title.

Outstanding Offense

Morgan Gosik


Morgan picked up the top playmaker award a year ago, and has now added a Top Offense award to boot.  Morgan's 9 points were exciting & dynamic for her Dolphins & the fans. 

12 and Under

​Most  Valuable Player

Ryland Gerstmann


It has been exciting to watch Ryland develop into a feared & lethal playmaker & certainly his Predator teammates are thankful as well as Ryland led all scorers with 22 points & a 12u team championship. 

Outstanding ​Playmaker

Eli Simpson


The 'Flying Phenom' literally put on a show for the ages as he scored the almost impossible 'Michigan' goal during a live game AND led all players with 5 critical assists for his Chupas.

Outstanding ​Goalie

Reece Curry

Free Shavacados

Things weren't looking so good for Reece prior to tourney time, but...oh boy, did he show up - outperforming all other goalies taking a crazy 158 shots, & top save avg (80%) for the tourney. 

Outstanding Offense

Preston Pifer


'Sargeant' Preston Pifer simply overpowered the opposition all tourney long, scoring 15 goals that were absolutely critical in leading his Predators to the 12u team championship. 

1​5 and Under

​Most Valuable Player

Charlie Whelan

Angry Hobos

'Charlie my Boy' Whelan finally put everything together for the tourney & led his Angry Hobos to an undefeated record, getting most goals (9) & assists (4) & leading his team to the title. 

Outstanding ​Playmaker

Max Dunnigan

Angry Hobos

No one plays with more drive, intensity & conviction than the 'Max' as his 7 points was the critical difference maker in an extremely competitive division that resulted in a 15u team championship.

Outstanding ​Goalie

Reece Curry

Angry Hobos

What is the secret behind this dynamo's stamina?'s in the hair.  Reece overcame tremendous odds just to get to the tourney where he took top goalie in 12u AND top goalie & team title in 15u.  

Outstanding Offense

Riley D'Antonio

 Happy Hippies

'The Life of Riley' put on a dazzling display of hockey finesse & grit that was worth paid admission, scoring 6 goals & 2 assists that just pulled his Hippies into the title game.

PYHA Youth Recreational League

PYHA youth recreational leagues conduct 2 seasons every year.  There is a Spring season beginning in March and ending in May.  The 2nd season is the Fall season which begins in August and concludes in October.

Prior to actual beginning of practices and games, the season commences with a family/player fun day at the Pioneer Park arena.  All families that have registered with the PYHA are invited for a free fun day where music, fun events and food are the orders of the day.

Behind the Mask

Also in attendance at the fun day, will be the state's best and most recognized hockey equipment retailer – BEHIND THE MASK.  

Owner Randy Exelby and his staff set up their array of hockey gear ranging from entry level equipment to the elite brands that players may purchase.  

BEHIND THE MASK has been serving Arizona's hockey community since 1994 with outstanding service, expert advice & has provided equipment discounts to leagues, travel programs and hockey organizations.

​The PYHA has a limited supply of previously used hockey gear that players may use for free.  However, the loaner gear is on a first come – first serve basis.  Once the gear has been lent out, there will be no more loaner gear.

Equipment Required for Play

Youth Summer Open Hockey

Every Friday beginning at 5:30 PM, lace em up, get on the floor & LET'S PLAY HOCKEY!  $5 gets you on a team & in the game for more fun than you are allowed to have.

Spring '18 Tourney Champions

Wow, how exciting it was at this past Falls' rec tournament!  The Red Foxes , Twizzlers & Team D'Antonio all triumphed.  Check out all the results! 

Spring Season Loaner Gear

Yes, the PYHA does have some loaner gear.  But the gear is not unlimited, as the gear will be on a first come – first serve kind of system.  Gear check-out will be Wednesday, Mar. 6th, 5 - 8 PM at Pioneer Park. 

Drafting Players for Teams

After 2 open practices, the PYHA will conduct a draft in order to place an equal number of skilled players & beginner skaters on each team.

What is it that makes the PYHA a truly unique experience?

What is it that separates the PYHA youth recreational leagues from the myriad of sports associations out there?  They have simply discovered the worst kept secret.  Hockey is the only major sport that does not require a stoppage of play in the game in which to substitute players on the floor.  Knowing this, scheduled player substitutions are required at specific times during live play. 

An announcer will broadcast the line changes for all teams to know when to change.  When this occurs, the pace of the game quickens and the energy level elevates dramatically.  Whenever a player scores or assists on a play, the announcer utilizes a state-or-the-art sound system that acknowledges a player's performance in real time.  When all of these segments are conducted, the games can resemble more of an ESPN show where the athletes are on a stage performing as much as playing in a game.

​The bottom line is that when your child registers to play in the PYHA youth recreational league, they are not just an individual with a number on their back.  They have a name, they are in the game and their participation will make a difference.
