$130 plus registration with USA Hockey (free for birth years 2012 and younger, $45 for older players)
USA Hockey registration is required. Your USA Hockey registration is good until August 2019 for hockey programs nationwide.

Is My Player Ready?
If your player can skate forwards and backwards while holding a stick, then your player is ready. They don't need to be speedy; they will be fine if they can move in both directions. One session of Learn-to-Play-Hockey or Learn-to-Skate provides enough background, but prior participation in Learn-to is not required.

What if My Player Loves This?
Won't it be great if your player falls in love with a game that provides exercise throughout the winter months? For an additional $100, your player can join the AYHA 8U program for the remainder of the 18-19 season.

My Player Was Born Before 2010. Is it too late to start ice hockey?
It's not too late, but we need a custom plan to get your kid skating with their natural age group ASAP. Contact [email protected]
