YETI League

House League (YETI) - GHA is proud to partner with Flathead Valley Hockey Association (FVHA) to provide local hockey opportunities through our Yeti House League program.  Yeti League is currently offered at the 6U/8U/10U age levels. Players participate in all team practices and play games locally in Kalispell and Whitefish.  Games will be played at Woodland Ice Rink in Kalispell on Friday nights, or will be played as a jamboree format across several weekends throughout the playing season.  This season there will be only one session with two levels for YETI (season long).


YETI League is a non-travel hockey league. GHA and FVHA work in conjunction to provide area youth the opportunity to play on a hockey team without the demands of travel.  YETI participation is open to all players at the 6U/8U/10U divisions.
