Welcome to the Home of the

Lake Placid Youth Athletic Association


The 2017 tournament will be held


Thursday, February 23rd – Sunday, February 26th


Come experience the history and cozy alpine charm of Lake Placid.  Your team will have an opportunity to play in The Olympic Center which houses three ice surfaces: 


  • The 1980 Herb Brooks Arena where the legendary "Miracle on Ice" hockey game was played.
  • The 1932 Jack Shea Arena, home of the 1932 Olympics.
  • The USA Rink.


In addition to hockey, challenge yourself in the great outdoors of the Adirondacks by skiing or snowboarding at Whiteface Mountain, snowshoeing, ice climbing, or cross country skiing.  After a cold day outdoors, enjoy the warmth of a spa and then dinner at one of Lake Placid’s many delicious restaurant options.


As of Wednesday, August 10th we will be accepting applications for the tournament.
