The KVHA House program is our recreational hockey program for the youth in Brighton, Howell and surrounding communities. 
Our House programs are as follows and all amounts quoted are from last season the current rates will be finalized soon:


Biggby Hockey for ages 8 & under
Biggby Coffee and KVHA will continue to focus on making Learn-to-Play (LTP), Mini-Mite and Mite recreational hockey the most fun experience for the kids and to support building great youth coaches.   We have an in-house league for everyone 8 and under with a holiday jamboree and end of season party.   With program structure all of the kids will get to know each other over the course of the season and will create lifelong friendships
 
Mini Mite (age 5 & 6 - birth years 2015 or later) and Mites (age 7 & 8 - birth years 2014/2013)  - Teams play other KVHA teams and typically skate one weeknight and one weekend day,  with ice times in the morning or afternoon; Ice time is 50 minutes;  Games begin mid-October or once jerseys arrive; Teams can enter tournaments or jamborees but this is an additional expense for parents that is not included in the monthly ice fee, which was $139/month for Mini Mites and $157/month for Mites last season.

There really is no way to determine how many teams we will have next season, as it varies from year to year based on how many kids register, how many are moving up from one division to another, how many kids make the jump from house to travel, and how many coaches we have to fill the spots. We will add as many teams as we need if we have kids and coaches to support it.
