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.
