The South Lake Tahoe Ice Arena recently started its new youth hockey program, the South Tahoe Amateur Hockey Association. This nonprofit program provides boys and girls ages 2 to 18 the opportunity to become involved in the great sport of ice hockey. Everyone is welcome.

Programs are designed for all abilities, and loaner equipment is available. STAHA will provide a supervised program to develop attitudes of sportsmanship and the benefits of teamwork, while having fun participating in a healthy activity. The program is designed for beginner skaters, in-house hockey league players and travel teams. About 100 youth are currently registered.

If you are interested in participating, or if you know of a business interested in sponsoring a team, visit or call the ice arena at (530) 542-6262. There is no fee to register and no obligation. Register today to receive information via e-mail.

The South Lake Tahoe Ice Arena is at 1176 Rufus Allen Blvd., next to the Recreation and Swim Pool Complex. Join us for some fun on the ice.
