Our Rinks

The Schenectady County Recreational Facility ("SCRF") - 5 Tower Road, Glenville NY, and UNION College Messa Rink, 1261 Lenox Road, Schenectady, NY




Here is some basic information regarding our upcoming entry level programs:

  • Spring II Learn to Skate -  This session will run on Monday evenings only, 6-7pm, from April 25 - June 13.  There is no class on Memorial Day, Monday 5/30.  
  • Summer Learn to Skate - This session will run on Monday evenings, 6-7pm, 7/11 through 8/22.  Registration is now open - click here to register.  Late fee of $15 will be applied to all registrations after 7/7/16.  Please note:  We are seeking adult beginner and intermediate skaters to round out the adult lesson group.  Skating isn't fun for just kids!  
  • Summer 3v3 Challenge - this program is always a sell-out, don't wait to register!  Monday nights, 7/11 thru 8/22.  Mini-mites and Mites will skate from 7:10-8:10, and Squirts and PeeWees will skate from 8:10-9:10.  A full hour of supervised 3v3 game play - meant to be like when kids played in empty lots and back yard ponds.  Stay cool this summer at the rink!  Click here to register.  Cost is $70 until June 5th. Registration will be closed when a division reaches capacity.

As of 5/11/16 - both the Mini-mite and Mite divisions of Summer 3v3 are full.  

As of 6/6/16 - the Pee Wee division is full for skaters and there are only a very limited number of spots left in the Squirt Division.  We are still accepting Squirt and PeeWee goalies - Note:  goalies do not skate out and must have their own gear.

Interested in coaching?

Dear Prospective Coaches,

SYHA is accepting coaching applications for the 2015-2016 season. The application process is a "rolling process" - meaning we will evaluate applicants as we receive their applications and assign coaches accordingly.

SYHA is committed to the ADM and values and principles of USA Hockey. In addition to the prerequisite training (appropriate coaching level, online modules, registered with USA Hockey) we expect our coaches to demonstrate behaviors and values consistent with those of SYHA and USA Hockey.

If you are interested in coaching at SYHA for the 2015-2016 season please send a letter of interest (via e-mail) to Wally Bzdell. Within that letter please share:
• Current USA Hockey Coaching level (if expired please explain)
• Online USA Hockey modules completed
• Current USA Hockey registration number (if expired please explain)
• History of coaching, including most recent coaching experiences (all sports)
• What level you are interested in coaching at SYHA
• If you want to be a head coach or assistant coach
• If you are willing to coach at levels/divisions other than those you listed as your preference
• E-mail address and phone number to contact you

Please make sure to forward this to any other coaches within or outside of SYHA who might want to join us for 2015-2016.  We look forward to hearing from you.

Yours in Hockey,

Wally Bzdell (on behalf of the SYHA Board)
