Spring 3-on-3 League
This is a fast paced game, not for the novice skater.  We recommend at least 1 year of organized youth hockey before signing up.  This program is designed so players can enhance their individual skills in a fun filled environment.  More ice time equals improved skating, puck handling, passing, and shooting skills!  

2 20-minute running time periods.  Full ice games.  No checking.  Players change every minute by the sound of the buzzer.  Teams are chosen by the Arena.  This is a fun and unique program for kids to be creative.  Rosters and schedule will be posted about 2 weeks prior to program starting.

Dates: March 28th- May 10th (7 weeks)

3 Age groups
4 Teams per division
