The New York City Gay Hockey Association (NYCGHA) is New York’s first and largest LGBTQ+ hockey organization. For over 20 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, clinics throughout the summertime, 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.
