Welcome Back Week

Calling all associations! A personal phone call from your association inviting your families back to the rink is the most effective way to return playes to your program.

During the week of September 15 - 21, 2014, USA Hockey is looking for associations to reach out to each and every player who skated with them last season. The goal is to reach all parents of 8 & under players from the 2013-14 season and let them know they are WELCOME BACK for the new season!

2 and 2 Challenge

The 2 and 2 Challenge is a call-to-action for local associations. It is a blueprint that guides youth hockey leadership through national programs and tools to realize their goal of acquiring 2 additional players and retaining 2 additional players than the previous season's total.

Looking for a tournament?  All tournaments shown on our schedule are USA Hockey sanctioned events.  To have your tournament listed, please follow the instructions for sanctioning a tournament. Tournaments are added to the schedule after approval from the Southeastern District Registrar. 

The Southeastern District Caucas has mandated the District Registrar reject all requests for full ice tournaments in the Mite 8 & Under age classification. 

If an Invitational Tournament Application is received that includes a Mite 8 & Under age classification, the tournament operator will be given the opportunity to choose either half ice or cross ice. If the operator wishes not to make a choice, the Mite division will not be sanctioned.

ADM Kids

What is it like to play on full ice as a 8 year old?

To demonstrate how a full sheet of ice looks to a child, USA Hockey put adult players on an extra large rink with giant nets to simulate what a child sees. The players found the games tiring, difficult and said they would lose interest quickly in the sport if that was what they faced. See how adult players opened their eyes to what is being taught by the American Development Model of cross-ice hockey and small area games. Learn more at ADMKids.com.
