Return to the Rink

NBYHL has begun the work of planning for next year.  We will be working within the guidelines provided to us by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, City of North Adams, MA Hockey, and USA Hockey.  As we move through the phased reopening of the state we will understand more about what the return to hockey for our NBYHL players will look like.

Our goal is to have a fun and safe hockey season.  As we know more we will email members and post to social media.

At Home Hockey Resources

Check out USA Hockey and Massachusetts Hockey which both have a lot of resources available during this time of uncertainty.  They have activities you can do at home and interesting articles you can do read.  We hope that these sites will help you to stay active and healthy well we all do our part.



NBYHL Teams

Northern Berkshire Youth Hockey

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 program (Bear Cubs) for ages 4-12, including a session that 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.
