Matt Smith Memorial Hockey Scholarship Awards Offered at IYHA

By admin, 04/13/17, 12:00PM EDT


We are honored to remember our fallen friend and hockey coach by helping more kids play the great sport he loved!

Hello IYHA families:

IYHA and the family of Matt Smith have established a scholarship program in Matt's honor to make youth hockey more accessible to participants who demonstrate a financial need. Matt was a beloved hockey coach here at IYHA who lost his life much too soon back in August of 2015, but not before he had greatly touched the lives of the youth hockey and adult hockey communities here in the greater Indianapolis area. 


The Matt Smith Memorial Hockey Scholarship is funded by contributions and through future events as planned by our scholarship committee and the Smith family. IYHA encourages all families who feel they need assistance with house hockey fees to apply.  Click below to open the application. All applications for the 2017-2018 season are due by May 31, 2017.
