Welcome to the Gillette Hockey Association (GHA), home of the Gillette Grizzlies. GHA is an amateur, non-profit 501(c)(3) tax exempt youth hockey organization based in Gillette, Wyoming. The Gillette Grizzlies youth hockey program offers a fun, safe opportunity for Gillette youth to learn the game of hockey.
Registration for the GHA Glow Golf Tournament is now open. Go to www.gillettewild.org/golf to sign up. You can also contact Vice President Crystal Kellebrew for more information at firstname.lastname@example.org or (307) 660-1640.

When: August 21st, 4:30 p.m. start

There will be 27 teams of 2 players - only 54 players total, so sign up quickly to secure your spot. Tee off for the 1st round will be at 4:30 p.m. After the first round, dinner will be served (included in registration). Then at dusk, the 2nd round begins. Be sure to bring a flashlight or headlamp!

Registration is now open for the 2021/22 Hockey season. Visit the Registration page on the GHA website for more details and to register. The registration window is open through August 31st. After August 31st, a $200 roster fee will be applied (does not apply to new players). Be sure to read all of the information closely. There are a few changes this year. Payment plans are available when using a credit or debit card only. Cash or check payments will only be accepted for full payment.
Roster costs will remain the same this year for 19U Girls, 18U, 14U, 12U, and 10U age divisions. All players will be required to sell a book of raffle tickets again this year. There are discounts for new players at the 19U Girls, 12U, and 10U age divisions and for multiple players from the same family.
For the 8U and 6U age divisions, we will not hold practices during the week. We are encouraging all players at this level to participate in CCPR’s Blades and Avalanche program for weekly on-ice instruction. GHA’s program will run from November - March and will consist of 3v3 small area games every other Saturday for two hours. There will be opportunities for travel tournaments for those families that wish to do so. The registration cost is $25 for GHA and $56 for USA Hockey. They will also be required to sell a book of raffle tickets.
Registration is open July 1st for GHA’s program. CCPR’s Blades and Avalanche program has two sessions. Registration for Session 1 starts on August 2nd. Coaches and players from the Gillette Wild Junior Hockey program provide the instruction.
This change is occurring to partner with the CCPR program and not compete. This will also align with USA Hockey’s ADM. The goal is to grow our program at the youngest age levels by lowering the barriers to entry - equipment costs (which they get through participation in Blades and Avs), registration costs, and travel costs.
GHA is looking for individuals interested in coaching or being a team manager. If interested, please contact Coach in Chief Trevers Chapman at email@example.com.
Thanks, everybody! Enjoy your summer. See you at the rink, really soon!
Happy Sprinter, Everyone! Nothing like a late-season snowfall to make you appreciate living in Wyoming, right?
We would like to thank David Hardesty for being our SafeSport Coordinator for the past two years. David did a great job in this role and his dedication and insight will be missed in that role.
That being said, we are looking for nominations for our next SafeSport Coordinator. If you or someone you know would be a great SafeSport Coordinator, send an email to Secretary Geno Palazzari.
Here is a brief description of the role:
