Northeast Youth Hockey Association (NYHA), in a partnership with the Wilkes-Barre / Scranton Junior Knights is proud to provide limited funding to qualified young hockey players to assist with costs associated with the sport of travel hockey on both a merit based approach as well as a financial need based approach. These funds will be used to pay the organization directly for your player’s participation in travel hockey.
WHO CAN APPLY?
Young people ages 8-18 years old that are playing travel hockey at Revolution Ice Centre and are seeking financial assistance with youth travel hockey tuition.
