If you are interested in applying, please complete the application below:

KVHA Application For 2017-2018 Travel Coach

Applications being accepted until January 16th, 2017.


Application to be on the KVHA Board Of Directors

It’s that time of year when the association looks to its members to find candidates to become members of the Board of Directors. KVHA holds our Annual Membership Meeting and elections in March each year, right as the season is ending. This allows our families to comment and provide input while the season events are fresh in their minds and before moving on to other spring sports.

Board applications are now being accepted. Candidates should include information on their background, state why they are running for a particular Board position, and what they hope to accomplish during their term. We encourage our members to step forward and run for these positions. Our program depends on dedicated volunteers who have the time, interest, and new ideas for our continued success.

Persons wishing to run for an open Board position must submit an on-line application, which can be found by clicking on the link listed to the right:

Application for Nomination to the KVHA Board of Directors

Deadline for submission is Tuesday January 31st, 2017

Try Hockey for Free event was a Big Success!!

KVHA hosted "Try Hockey for Free" today, and had nearly 40 children trying the game for the first time. The kids enjoyed the time on the ice as well as the Pizza/Slushies afterwards. Thank you to our Learn To Play Coach Korey , Parent Volunteers, Members of the Brighton High School Hockey team and some of our KVHA Rebels, Renegades, Raiders and Ravens players for bringing smiles to the new players' faces and making it a fun event for all. We cant wait to see these young players back playing at KVHA!!!!

Important House 2016-2017 Season Information

Additional Season Events

Many have asked if KVHA will be offering any training opportunities to members at an affordable cost.  In the past, we have had various outfits run clinics throughout the season. We do not have any clinics scheduled at this time, but ask that you email hockeydirector@kvhockey.org with your interest level and we will use that information for programming.

Goalie Skills Clinics ran three times this summer and we hope to continue periodically throughout the season with additional opportunities to develop our existing goalies and to give a jump start to those who would like to explore becoming a goalie.

KVHA will hold two Try Hockey For Free days this season and they are sponsored in part by USA Hockey.  Keep an eye out for information regarding these events so you can tell your friends, family, and neighbors about the fun opportunity to give hockey a try. As well, we will be in need of volunteers to make it a fun event for all the new faces we hope to see.

2016-2017 Ice Fees

While never wavering from the commitment to the integrity and quality of our program, KVHA continues to analyze and minimize the increased costs to play hockey. 

We remain proud to continue to provide our players and their families with a fun and memorable hockey experience.

The 2016-2017 Season Dues are as follows.

KVHA appreciates our members' willingness and ability to pay season ice fees by using a credit card through the use of the payment plan set up on the www.KVHAhockey.org website. This modality of payment keeps accounts current, which prevents the need for Coaches to enforce the undesirable rule of not allowing a player to participate, when ice fees remain unpaid.  KVHA does not accept personal or cashier's checks, or cash. 

You may pay the ice fees in one payment, or you may pay in six equal monthly installments.  Payment information is posted below.  Please click on the link below to set up your payment plan.
