Sign Up Today!

Sign up to play today! Registration deadline is Thursday, November 10, 2016 Updated pricing and links will be posted soon, but expect a price of around $100 for ice time, jerseys, trophies, and team pictures.

Any players born in 2009 or earlier, must first register with USA Hockey and provide their confirmation number.

U8 Mite Hockey

Mite players are any skaters who are 8 years old or younger as of December 31, 2016. We will break our U8 players into two groups based on experience and ability. We will have one beginner group and one intermediate group. Our beginner group will be called the “Mini-Mites”.

Mite Practice will be on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 3:45-5:00 pm in January and as far as the ice will take us into February.

Squirt/Pewee Hockey

Squirt players are U10 skaters while pewees are U12. We will try to improve upon last year’s idea to combine these groups and field one team. Scheduling a mixed group can be tough , but the squirt/pewees should expect to play 3-4 home games and 2 or 3 travel games.

Squirt/Pewees will practice Tuesdays from 3:45-5:00 pm and on Thursday from 5:15-6:15 pm.

**Practice Note: Tuesday practices ae combined with all our players and coaches. We will incorporate skills and drills recommended by USA Hockey through a series of stations. Players will be broken into groups based on their age and ability, so each station will be age appropriate. Thursday practices will be more focused on game play, positioning, full and half ice scrimmages, etc. This also allows us to limit the later practice times to one night for our squirt/pewees.

PRE-SEASON ICE TIME: We are trying to schedule about 5 practice sessions down below to get us started in November and December, before we have ice up here. It’s important to be registered on time in order to skate at these practices-- which is included as part of your ice fee.

Games: Home games for intermediate mites and our squirts/pewees will be scheduled in the month of January and into the first two weeks of February—weather permitting. Our usual games times fall on Saturday afternoons and Sunday mornings. In Feb. and early March we then expect to travel and play at Fraser, the Y in Lafayette, Arvada, and a possible trip to Crested Butte so we can all use our ski passes! On that note, it’s okay to miss a weekend of hockey to ski, we understand. Also, there will be no games scheduled over the MLK or Presidents Day weekends.

Expected Home Game Dates: 1/7, 1/8, 1/21, 1/22, 1/28, 1/29, 2/4, 2/6
