Long Island Amateur Hockey League (LIAHL) is the premier league for Travel Hockey teams from Westchester and Long Island. Teams competing in the specific LIAHL divisions play a home game and away game against other teams in the league throughout the season. The LIAHL final season standings are used to qualify for the LIAHL playoffs and the New York State Tournament (Peewees and up).

Eastern Junior Elite Prospects League (EJEPL) prepares players to become the Junior, Prep School and College recruits of the future. Many of the owners of top Junior programs, top Prep School programs and AAA Youth organizations regularly scout the EJEPL and its 90 partner organizations. The EJEPL creates a seamless transition process that allows players at 9U through 18U levels to develop their skills and learn league play with the ability to stay in their organizations through college. During the season, players are rewarded with the opportunity to practice and play with teams at the next level, culminating with the parent clubs in each organization. The EJEPL provides a high level of competition for teams along the East Coast.

Please note: Players who played for another NYSAHA organization and would like to participate in the NYC Cyclones clinics and/or tryout are required to provide a NYSAHA Player Release Form from their organization. Players coming from another LIAHL team must provide an original NYSAHA Player Release form with a raised seal.
