On November 8th, USA Hockey and Southeastern District local associations will host Try Hockey For Free as part of Come Play Hockey Month.
This event is designed to provide kids, between the ages of 4 to 9, a completely free experience to try youth hockey. A limited amount of equipment is available to borrow. Our top coaches will be on the ice to assist your child in learning the basics. Your son or daughter does not need any previous skating or hockey experience.

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.
For questions regarding this policy, please contact Mark Bodner, Southeastern District Registrar at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Each year, USA Hockey publishes its Annual Guide, which details the organization's administrative structure, programs and philosophy, bylaws, rules and regulations and much more.
The Official Playing Rules provides consistency for all participants, to ensure a safe and positive playing environment while continuing to focus on skill development and enjoyment of the sport.

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.
