2019/2020 YOUTH HOCKEY

registration opens Monday 9/16

The local USA Hockey program is for ages 5-18 and is organized by Winthrop Amateur Hockey Association (WAHA) through the Winthrop Rink. The program is open to boys and girls of all abilities, and focuses on skating development, understanding of general rules, gameplay with an emphasis on fun, and a competitive element for older players. Practices will be held twice a week and scrimmages on scheduled Saturdays. 10U, 12U, and 14U teams will participate in the Winthrop Rink Great Outdoors Classic.

This season, we will be offering an 8-week season for 6U and 8U teams and a 12-week season for 10U, 12U, 14U (NEW!) and 16U teams.
