Youth hockey

Puck going into net The youth hockey leagues fall under the Arkansas Hockey Association (AHA), and are affiliated with USA Hockey. There are house/recreational programs for beginners and less experienced players, and a travel division for a more competitive level of play. The travel division plays against teams all over the south. The youth program emphasizes character building, teamwork, and development of hockey skills at a competitive level, but is open to kids of all skill levels. There are no girls-only teams, but girls are welcome to play at all levels. Full gear is required of all players.
The season runs from September through March.
