The Kankakee Youth Hockey Club (KYHC) is a hockey club that operates out of the Ice Valley Centre in Kankakee, IL. Kankakee is rich with history, festivals and natural beauty and we are lucky to call it our home!

Currently the KYHC consists of the Irish High School Varsity and Junior Varsity teams which play in the Illinois High School Hockey League (IHSHL) and the Kankakee Coyotes which may consist of Bantam, Peewee, Squirt, and Mite teams which play in the Northwest Hockey League (NWHL).
