Riverbank Hockey

The Youth Ice Hockey Programs at Riverbank State Park offer the most affordable introduction to and training in recreational ice hockey in New York City. Program fees are $212-$247 for the entire winter season from November through March. There are two 90-minute midweek practice sessions for Mites, Squirts, PeeWees, Bantams, Midgets and Girls. Games are played on weekends, and teams often have more than one game per weekend. Coaches provide structured training and drills for all levels of ability in both recreational and competitive hockey. Coaches encourage individual development, teamwork and foster a natural, healthy competitive spirit that comes from within.

Riverbank participates in the Hudson Valley Hockey League, and competes against teams across New York City, Westchester and New Jersey. Riverbank teams also play friendly, non-league games against clubs throughout the region.

Riverbank hosts the annual Lightning Tournament, and Riverbank teams participate in tournaments throughout the region.

All are welcome! We have a diverse group of participating parents and children who love the sport. The games are exciting for the parents as well as the children. Try out one season of ice hockey at Riverbank State Park to see if your child loves to move and fly over the ice. 

Riverbank Lightning is a program of Denny Farrell Riverbank State Park. New players must apply and be selected between July 7-31.
