The East Side Youth Sports Foundation is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization dedicated to the growth of youth sports on the Eastside of Detroit. Founded in 2014 as East Side Hockey Foundation to support the growth of youth hockey in the community. The Foundation acquired the local ice arena, located in Detroit, and renamed it the East Side Hockey Arena. Our goal has been to support the growth of youth hockey in our community.
In 2016 ESYSF took over ownership of the local hockey club and renamed it the East Side Bulldogs Hockey Club to create an atmosphere of inclusion. With 400+ members and 14 teams participating in Travel, House, and 8U programs, BHC provides a competitive environment of learning and good sportsmanship at all skill levels for both boys and girls in the sport of hockey.
