Ice Hockey In Harlem (IHIH) began in the winter of 1987 with forty eager participants ranging in age from 9-17. In class these IHIH pioneers were taught math, reading, and geography using hockey cities and statistics as teaching tools.


With a cursory knowledge of the basics, the youngsters donned mismatched, second-hand equipment and wobbled onto the ice of Lasker Rink, an outdoor facility at the northern end of Central Park. By Year Five, IHIH had expanded to 125 kids. With this increase in enrollment, IHIH was on the ice at Lasker Rink three nights a week for clinics, a six-team intramural league, and an All-Star touring team. The New York Rangers were generously supporting the program with a mid-season clinic at Lasker and fund-raising efforts. Two players graduated from the program to attend prep schools on IHIH scholarships.

Before the start of Year Seven, the Ice Hockey In Harlem Board of Directors decided that expansion of the program and the increase in participants exceeded the capabilities of an all-volunteer staff. The full-time staff includes a Hockey Director and an Events Manager. Ice Hockey In Harlem has become a widely recognized and highly respected name throughout the hockey community. It has also served as the model for numerous successful programs throughout the country.

Ice Hockey In Harlem, for nearly two decades now, has helped thousands of needy youngsters learn a sport that would otherwise be financially unavailable to them. More importantly, through its educational and community service components, IHIH has given its participants the tools to succeed in their schools and as solid citizens in their communities.
