As we head into the holidays,  we hope that you can enjoy time away from the rink with friends and family to rest and recharge for the second half of the season.  


   Starting in December, our 10U and older teams will begin to prepare for District credentialing and playoffs, which will begin in January for most divisions.    As well, we begin planning for next season and the application for 2023-24 Travel coaches will be available mid-December along with the application for the 2023-24 KVHA Board of Directors.    This is your chance to "be the change" and give back to the hockey community by addressing the needs and goals of the association and contributing to our continued success and growth.   Consider joining this awesome group of volunteers!



December also brings our annual BIGGBY Mini Mite & Mite Holiday Jamborees!   We are looking forward to hosting those at KVIH on December 11 and 18. 

If you are in those divisions, stay tuned for more information after Thanksgiving weekend



For Players 12 & older...
