KHL was established in 2014 with the mission to provide a safe, fun, competitive environment, with an emphasis on sportsmanship and teamwork, where hockey players of all ages can develop skills.
KHL is staffed by a volunteer Board of Directors, coaches, parents, and others, who are committed to providing an enriching and challenging program through teamwork, respect, discipline, and a lifelong appreciation of the game of hockey. KHL defines success as continual player development through active participation in the sport of hockey, while building sportsmanship and character. Hockey activities are designed to meet the needs of all levels of youth, with progressive and challenging programs as they move up age divisions.
In accordance with the American Development Model (ADM), KHL expects good sportsmanship from all members and participants, which means all players are given a fair opportunity to play during games. All divisions emphasize skating skills, stick control, puck handling, different player positions, teamwork, and general objectives of the game. Emphasis is placed on the player gaining age-appropriate abilities and enjoying the sport of recreational hockey. It is KHL’s goal to deliver the appropriate level of coaching, mentoring, and inspiration, to ensure players have developed the skills and character to continue on to various levels of hockey beyond 18U.
Each Hockey Season, KHL may participate in both Rec A and Rec B of the ASHA State Tournament. The Rec A and B levels are tiers that KHL has chosen as a means of continuing a learning and recreational atmosphere for development. Divisions eligible to compete are 10U, 12U, 14U, 16U & 18U.
Development of all travel team(s) will be based on availability of resources, ice time, selection process, funding, travel costs, the desires of its players, and the commitment of membership. However, final approval is required by the KHL Board of Directors.
