Ice Hockey

YOUTH HOCKEY LEAGUE

Our Youth Hockey League is designed to introduce boys and girls (6U/8U Mites) to the fundamental elements of hockey in a fun, instructional and safe environment.  From the moment your child hits the ice, our program will assist them with the advancement of their individual skill level and hockey knowledge while enhancing their level of play through fundamental skill work, sportsmanship and team building in a structured environment.  Games and practices are hosted at Swonder Ice Arena.  Everyone plays!

Players receive 8 weeks of programming including games and a weekly one-hour instructor-led practice session, instructor coach, league hockey jersey/socks and individual awards.

Wednesday practices are optional but highly encouraged for skill development.  Our 6U/8U Mites program will also practice during game play on Saturday’s with a rotation of play and practice.  Details will be given during league.  Games and practices are hosted at Swonder Ice Rink.  Register at the Dunigan YMCA front desk..
