To provide a positive youth hockey experience for all players of all skill levels and ages. This focus will help them develop as players and individuals and also foster a life-long love for the game of hockey.
GBAYHA exists to offer a high quality, affordable opportunity to learn the game of hockey for players in our Green Bay organization. We pride ourselves on providing age-appropriate player development and skill-appropriate coaching. Success is measured by player development and retention, not winning championships.
The following Core Values of USA Hockey are adopted to guide the association’s members in their planning, programming, and play, both now and in the future. While these core values are directed at our youths that play hockey, it must also be implemented by adult volunteers. Coaches, parents, and administrators must all do their part to ensure that these core values and policies are upheld.
Desired outcomes from Mission/Vision/Values:
Based on a rule change by USA Hockey, age classifications will no longer have name labels like ‘midget’ or ‘bantam’ in the USAH rulebook.
Instead, all age categories for youth hockey are to be referred to only by age number – 12U, 14U, 16U, etc.
How age categories will now be referred to:
We are seeking detail-oriented individuals to fill open DIBS Positions.
- Tournament Coordinators (all levels)

The Wisconsin Legislature passed a new law in 2021 which took affect on July 1st if 2022, that requires: At the beginning of a season for a youth athletic activity offered to persons who are 12 years of age or older, the person operating the youth athletic activity shall ensure that information be developed to educate all athletic coaches and pupil athletes and their parents or guardians about the nature and risk of Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) during youth athletic activities. These materials shall include in the information at least all of the following:
(a) Information about the risks associated with continuing to participate in a youth athletic activity after experiencing one or more symptoms of sudden cardiac arrest, including fainting, difficulty breathing, chest pains, dizziness, and abnormal racing heart rate.
(b) Information about electrocardiogram testing, including the potential risks, benefits, and evidentiary basis behind electrocardiogram testing.
(c) Information about how to request, from a pupil's health care provider, the administration of an electrocardiogram, in addition to a comprehensive physical examination required to participate in a youth athletic activity, at a cost to be incurred by the pupil's parent or guardian.
WAHA has developed the required materials for use in educating all coaches, players, and parents/guardians. By law, all coaches, players, and parents/guardians must sign an acknowledgement form indicating that they have read and understand the information provided in the SCA materials and that this information be included in the same form as the one required for Concussions. Therefore, the acknowledgement forms can be found under the Concussion Information section of the “Forms” tab on WAHA website.
