About Us

Welcome to the Washington County Youth Hockey Association (WCYHA)! We are a private non-profit hockey association. Through a dedicated staff of certified coaches we strive to teach youth sportsmanship, ice skating, teamwork, build self-esteem, and develop discipline. WCYHA fields teams through high school aged youth, and supports and maintains the Kettle Moraine Ice Center owned by the WCYHA. We operate completely with volunteers dedicated to putting on a first class program for the youth of our community.

Our History

Mike Quigly, Garnet Ward, Horst Wagner, John Gehl and Connie Hall formed this association in 1975. The first practice was held on Big Cedar Lake near Garnet Ward’s home. It was then moved to a neighborhood rink on Little Cedar Lake. From there the rink moved to a pond at Silverbrook and Hickory. As the association grew, the need for a more permanent site became necessary. The association contacted Gary Anderson of the West Bend Recreation Department, and the rink was set up on one of the ball diamonds at Regner Park. In 1977, due to flooding issues, the Park Commission agreed to a new location behind the warming house at Regner Park. In 1992 the “Ice ‘92” fund raising campaign finally helped us to realize our goal of an indoor ice facility, The Kettle Moraine Ice Center.

Located in West Bend Wisconsin, The Kettle Moraine Ice Center is owned and operated by the Washington County Youth Hockey Association. Dedicated Volunteers are a necessary component to the success of the KMIC. The KMIC operates 10 months out of the year and users include: Washington County Youth Hockey, Washington County Adult Hockey League, WIAA Ice Bears, Kettle Moraine Figure Skating Club, Wisconsin AAA and The West Bend Bombers.

The Facility has recently gone through a $1 million building expasion project.  The expansion areas have more than doubled the non-ice areas. These areas include: 5 new locker rooms, Skate rental room, fitness center, TNT Functional Fitness room, new upper and lower lobby and large multi purpose/banquet room.
