  • Excellence

    The quality of being outstanding or extremely good.

  • Cooperation

    The process of working together on the same end.

  • Development

    The process of developing or being developed.


Mason City Youth Hockey Association (MCYH) was established in 1977 as a 501(c)3 non-profit organization.

Run by volunteers, MCYH provides ice for over 200 North Iowa youth hockey players, along with 50 adult players in the Mason City Adult Hockey League, as well as 150 figure skaters who are members of the North Iowa Figure Skating Club. We also host the North American 3 Hockey Team, the North Iowa Bulls.

Our skaters practice and compete at Mason City Arena at Southbridge Mall in the heart of downtown Mason City.

As a service to the community, we open the doors for public skating. Last season, the arena was open to public skating for more than 180 hours. Groups and parties can also rent the arena for get-togethers during ice season.
