AYHA's Major House League program is for players ages 11 through 16 who have participated in youth hockey for several years or for older beginning players, both boys and girls. The Major House League is a combination of Pee Wee, Bantam and Midget aged players who are evaluated in the beginning of the season and are split equally by skill and numbers into several teams. The teams are assigned a coach and assistant coach and will have a practice to game ratio of 2 practices for every 2 games. Each game is officiated, which also teaches the players the rules of the game such as icing, off sides and penalties. In addition to skating skills, stick handling and puck control, each player is taught the positions of the game and value of team play. The season ends in March with the "Gazzillo Cup" playoffs, named after a former AYHA member Phil Gazzillo.
