Important Note: If you have been in our Learn To Skate or Learn To Play program and have been considering our travel program, we suggest you talk with our coaches/volunteers about the travel program. It is much easier for you to register for and begin with the travel program and move back to the in-house programs than it is for you to move from the in-house programs to travel later in the year (since travel evaluations are conducted in September/October).


Girls In-House Team: 8 to 18 years of age - The girls' in-house team is for older girls who are new to hockey and are not yet ready to play on a travel team. For details, email Girls’ Division Coordinator Karen Skolfield at  .   Season Fees $340.00. 
Girls in this age group who are already playing on an AHA travel team may also attend the house team’s practices and events at a reduced rate of $125 since there will be a number of overlapping practices with their travel teams.
