CSYHA Information on Return to Play 2020-21 Season

Center State Families and Fan’s,

Please be advised that CSYHA is working behind the scenes and has been for the past few months to stay on top of USA Hockey and NYSAHA guidance as well as working to understand the NY State and SUNY implications that we have as we play out of the SUNY Morrisville IcePlex.  We have been working with the Morrisville Auxiliary Corp (MAC) and have a pending meeting with them to discuss implications on NYS and SUNY openings on CSYHA. 

SUNY IcePlex

It is expected that the rink will be allowed to open shortly however please note that the closure of the SUNY systems and campuses allowed for the IcePlex to decide to make a few changes to both rinks in the down time, normally they only modify one rink in the off-season.  Most summers they elect to close one rink to make upgrades and leave the other ice sheet open as to facilitate camps, school teams, and adult sessions.  Currently we understand that maintenance will not be completed until later in July so ice may not be available until that time.  More to come on this!


As with most things in life we all have our ebb-and-flow to the cycles in which things go.  CSYHA had been growing as of the last season or two and we do not want to lose that momentum.  We still plan to put the following teams on the ice this season and if numbers rise we do plan to adjust and facilitate additional teams if we get more players.

  • MITE (planning for 2-3 teams at least)
  • Squirt House
  • Squirt Travel/Independent
  • Pee Wee House
  • Bantam House
  • 18U Midget House
  • 18U Wrap (this team will start as soon as ice is in the IcePlex)



If anyone has any questions please feel free to contact the CSYHA President, Chris, at  We are all here to help and look to continue the upward trend of growth that we have seen in CSYHA hockey in the past season or two.

NOTE: The image used in this article was from the 18U Snowbelt Championship hosted at Center State (SUNY IcePlex) this past season. To all of our seniors and players aging out we wish you the best and you will all be missed!

Thank you,
