USA Hockey Congress Approves Requirement For Neck Guards

Starting August 1, 2024, USA Hockey has mandated the use of neck guards for all players in youth, girls, and junior age classifications during games and practices. To ensure a comprehensive approach to safety, USA Hockey also recommends the use of cut-resistant socks, sleeves, or undergarments.

WYH prioritizes the well-being of our players, and we fully support these changes. We invite you to learn more about this significant ruling and its implications by visiting the official USA Hockey website here.
