Program Information

Are you new to ice hockey or just new to the Winston-Salem Youth Hockey Organization?  Well you've come to the right place!

The Winston-Salem Youth Hockey Association (WSYHA) manages various local programs that are based in Winston-Salem at the Annex.  The Annex is open from October through April.

The Triad Hockey Alliance (THA) also offers a number of programs that combine participants from the entire Triad region and utilizes both the Winston-Salem Fairgrounds Annex and the Greensboro IceHouse for various activities.  The Greensboro IceHouse is open year-round.

Refer to the table below for a list of programs available through WSYHA and THA.  Click on the specific program using the navigation buttons on the left for more specific information on each program.  Although programs are labeled according to age (i.e. u8 means 8 years old and under), eligibility is actually based on the year of birth for the child.
