    New York City Gay Hockey Association

    The New York City Gay Hockey Association (NYCGHA) is New York’s first and largest LGBTQ+ hockey organization. For 25 years, we have provided an environment free of harassment and discrimination for members and friends of the LGBTQ+ community to play ice hockey and fulfill their athletic aspirations.

    Currently we organize eight teams in various divisions of Chelsea Piers’ adult recreational hockey program, an annual 15+ team Chelsea Challenge tournament on Memorial Day Weekend,  holiday scrimmages, and off-ice social events through the year.

    We are a membership organization and require all members to follow our Code of Conduct to participate in our programs.

    The NYCGHA is a member of Gay Hockey International and is a registered Public Charity under section 501(c)3 of the Internal Revenue Code.
