Raffle Ticket Information

For those of you who were unable to attend the banquet on April 3 and are in need of getting your Big Cash Raffle tickets please contact Lori Elfering on her Cell   612-221-2216 or by Email    lorielfering@gmail.com.

Also just a reminder that NLYHA will be implementing an equipment policy for the 2014-2015 season for the 12U, PeeWee, and Bantam levels which requires these players have black helmets black breezers, and black/red gloves. This change is being made to display a more professional/uniform look and feel while representing our association.


Follow us on TWITTER @NLYHA for team updates and important information.


The best way to communicate with the players/parents is through email and the website.  A majority of the time you will receive emails from your teams coach or team manager.  When they send an email out, it is meant to let you know important information regarding your team.  To make sure that everyone receives the information in a timely manner, we need to make sure that all emails associated with your player are in your player's profile.  By going into your profile, you can add emails to make certain that Mom, Dad, and the player (if they have email) will receive information.  Below is a link to the NGIN Help.  Click on the link and you should be brought to a webpage that has instructions for adding emails to your account.

***NOTE***  Make sure that you look at the "Contact Preferences" and that the email box is checked for Northern Lakes Lightning Youth Hockey Association.  You will not receive emails from the association if it is not checked.

Another useful tool for getting information/schedules for your players team is the NGIN Sports App for your smart phones.  The App is available for both iPhones and Droids.  Go to your respective App page and query NGIN Sports App.  Upload it to your phone and follow instructions from there.  The App will allow you to follow one team for free.  If you have players on two different teams, there is an annual subscription of $1.99.  The App will have the teams schedule and game results among other things.  If you have a Peewee, Bantam, or 12U, you will see that there are two teams to select from; one will be from the District 15 Website and the other from ours.  If you want schedule information, you will need to pick the team from our site.
Any questions, you can email me at erik.lee@tds.net

Thank you,

Erik Lee
