Ice Lynx Hockey


The Ice Lynx program was developed in 2017 following the advent of the Lynx women’s hockey program. At this time, there were only five girls skating in the entire association. The goal was to develop a place for girls to play and grow the game. The first year, the Ice Lynx played as a developmental team. The program has seen explosive growth and quickly developed into multiple teams at the 8u level as well as 10u and 12u level teams. In 2019/20, the 6u mini mite program developed and has a strong number of female skaters. The 4u program was developed in 2021. 

In its young history, the Ice Lynx have seen rapid success. The 10u team qualified for state in its first season and has qualified each season since. They placed 4th in state in 2021. The Ice Lynx teams are competing strongly in tournaments and bringing home hardware! Most importantly, they are having fun, forming bonds with their teammates and learning important life skills. 

Girls Programs

Girls looking to begin playing hockey in Washington County are welcomed to join the Ice Lynx program.

Once a family and a skater have decided that they want to commit to playing hockey for a full season, then they are ready to join the association, and become part of their age appropriate program. WCYHA has been very progressive in offering developmental programs which are tailor made to specific age groups. 

These programs can be divided into two categories:

Instructional -  Focus on shrinking the game to match the size of the player, developing skills, and having fun. Players can join at any point in the season, and there is minimal to no travel. All programs for skaters ages 8 and under fall into the instructional category. 

Travel/Competitive - All programs for skaters ages 9 to 14 fall into the travel team category. Travel team skaters must reside within our district (which is Washington County), participate in try outs for team placement, will have games almost every weekend from November through mid March, and will have the opportunity to earn a state championship for their level.

The programs offered at WCYHA are:

  • Mighty Mites (4U): 3 & 4 year olds
  • Mini Mites (6U): 5 & 6 year olds
  • Mites (8U): 7 & 8 year olds
  • Squirts (10U): 9 & 10 year olds
  • Peewees (12U): 11 & 12 year olds
  • Bantams (14U): 13 & 14 year olds
