De Pere Youth Hockey is proud to offer programs for youth skaters ages 4 - 18. The De Pere Youth Hockey Association serves the school districts of East De Pere, West De Pere, Denmark, Wrightstown, as well as the Village of Allouez and the Village of Bellevue. Started in 1972, our program aims to develop the skills, sportsmanship and leadership that allows players to reach their full potential.
On November 8th, De Pere Youth Hockey will be joining USA Hockey in an event to encourage kids, ages 4 to 9, to come to a local participating rink and try youth hockey.
