ARE YOU NEW TO HOCKEY?


WHY HOCKEY?

Did you hear about the sport from a friend or neighbor and want to find out more? 

First, you're in the right spot.  We offer programs for boys and girls at the youth level as well as high school aged players.

Hockey is one of the fastest growing youth sports in the country right now. Don't worry if your kid has never played, our high-level coaches and practice environment will allow them to learn how to skate and stickhandle in no time.  A lot of kids have only picked up a hockey stick in the last year to two, and every year we add more new kids to our program.

New to KHL?

Kodiak Hockey League offers the only youth hockey program on Kodiak Island.  Our season runs from early November until March and is open to all players from 5-18 years of age regardless of skill level.  We run two practices per week for the 6U-12U age groups and four practices per week for the 14U-18U age group.  Players are split between a "Gold Team" and a "Blue Team" in each age group and games are played on Saturdays.  We also run a Learn to Play (LTP) program for those players who are new to skating/hockey.

We participate in the Alaska State Hockey State Tournaments in 10U, 12U, 14U and 18U.  These tournaments are held off island at the conclusion of the season.  We take up to 16 players per team and travel is player funded.

Registration will be available on this website from  early October through November 30.  Please email us if you have any questions.

See You on the Ice!
