During the season your child will learn the fundamentals of hockey, it's rules, and how to work as a team. Athletes in this program will participate in different drills that will enhance their skill level and ability. 


Our main goals for our leagues is to give the kids a fun, safe environment to learn the game of hockey. Increase players skills, increase their understanding of the game (positioning, rules, hockey I.Q.), and emphasis teamwork and sportsmanship. 


The league format will be 25 minutes skills/drills and a 30 minute game.


Players will only need a stick to participate! If you do not have your own stick, you can purchase one for $15. No other equipment is necessary.


This season we will be looking for volunteer coaches to coach each team. If you are interested in this opportunity please select "Yes" you are interested in coaching when completing the registration. Also to become a coach this season we will require each volunteer coach to complete a USA Ball Hockey Coaches Certification. We refund you the cost of the certification, if approved. Follow the link below to complete this requirement:
