Hockey resources while we are all #StayingHome

Check out USA Hockey and Massachusetts Hockey which both have a lot of resources available during this time of uncertainty and staying at home.  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 doing our part.

Dear NBYHL Family,

The Board of NBYHL wants to update all members of the current status of a few items while our families deal with the impact of the COVID-19 virus.  Below are a few items to share with all of you:

  • On Friday, March 13 the Department of Conservation & Recreation closed all public rinks for the remainder of the season, this includes the Peter Foote Rink in North Adams.
  • On March 15, Mass Hockey recommended that all member organizations postpone all youth hockey activities.
  • Due to limits on crowd sizes and the Mass Hockey recommendation, the tournament that our 14U and 18U teams were registered to attend in early April has been canceled.
  • Additionally, due to Governor Baker’s order closing all restaurants, we have canceled our end of year travel banquet.

Members of the board, just like many of you, are disappointed that our season ended so quickly and that we are unable to celebrate all of the great things that took place this season.   Once restrictions on gathering are lifted, the board will begin meeting to plan for next season.   Please watch for emails, updates on our website, and posts to our Facebook page about exciting activities we will plan for the 2020-2021 season.

If you have any questions please feel free to contact any one of the NBYHL board members.  A link to the list of members is below.

Stay well!


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 league (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.
