Welcome to the Home of the Valley Forge Minutemen


The Minutemen are a Tier I “AAA” program.

As defined by USA Hockey, Tier I “AAA” is the highest competitive level of ice hockey in the United States. The Minutemen program is designed to further develop and challenge our most skilled players to compete against elite level teams at the local and national level. These teams compete in the Atlantic Youth Hockey League (AYHL).


Tier I hockey is subdivided into Major and Minor teams. Minor teams are comprised of first year players at that level and Major teams are comprised of second year players. Major teams at the Peewee level and above are eligible for the USA Hockey National Championships.
