Our Squirt Rec program is for kids ages 9-11 who are developing their hockey skills. Rec Squirt hockey is played at a lower competitive level than our Traveling Squirt team which suits developing and new hockey players, alike. There is no tryout needed to register in our Squirt Rec program.
Squirts should start the season with basic skating skills. While basic hockey skills are encouraged, they are not needed to register in our Squirt Rec program. Your player will develop their hockey skills through the instruction of your coach!
Our Squirt level is one of the largest programs that we offer! To run this program effectively, we need a lot of volunteers. Each Squirt team will need coaches and a manager. Please see our coaching and manager's pages if you are interested in supporting the team in this way!
Some other things to consider before registering for Squirts is:
- Loaner gear is available with a $100 deposit, which is given back when clean gear is returned on time at the end of the season.
- Squirts may play a few out of town games or tournaments
- Tournaments are highly encouraged but are optional
- Fundraising is available to help families offset the cost of program dues and tournament fees.
