Congratulations to Jack Saavedra and Carson Holliday for being selected by the Twin City Thunder in the 2020 NCDC Draft!  


Saavedra, an Indiana native, joined the IYHA in 2016-2017 and played two years for the Racers 16U AAA team. He rejoined the program last year to be a part of our inaugural 18U AAA group and we are thrilled for him to be taking the next step! 

Carson Holliday joined us from Gilbert, AZ for the 2019-2020 season and took full advantage of our world class on and off-ice development environment. 

Both players made huge strides in the IYHA and are now knocking on the door of NCAA college hockey!

The National Collegiate Development Conference (NCDC) is a 13 team tuition-free junior hockey league located in the Northeastern United States. Last year the Twin City Thunder had 7 NCAA college commitments. 

We would also like to send a huge thank you to the Okeley's and the Campbell's! Both families have young IYHA Jr Fuel players and opened their homes as host families to Jack and Carson for the 2019-2020 season. We couldn't do it without you!

If you want to be a part of the IYHA Jr Fuel, the largest youth hockey program in the Midwest, contact us today! Join the movement to promote our players and grow the game in Central Indiana. We are always seeking new players, host families and sponsors!
