Since 1969 Northern Berkshire Youth Hockey (NBYHL) has been a league that has promoted and developed the game of hockey among the youth of Northern Berkshire County, Massachusetts and Southern Vermont. Our league has travel teams (Black Bears) for boys and girls from age 6 through high school. We also boast a recreational house league (Bear Cubs) for ages 4-12, including a session which teaches children how to skate.
The purpose of the league is to provide the best available instruction in order to teach the game of hockey, stress the importance of physical fitness, and provide the core values of USA Hockey: sportsmanship; respect for the individual; integrity; pursuit of excellence as an individual, team and organization; enjoyment; loyalty; and teamwork.
