A development program for girls aged 4-14. This is a non-competitive program in which the skills of hockey will be taught and practiced. As an all levels program, the girls will be divided based on skill level and age. Skating techniques, skill drills and some scrimmage play will round out the program. The coaching staff is comprised of USA Hockey certified women with a background in hockey all whom currently play competitively. A great opportunity to learn and play hockey in a fun and supportive environment!
Teton Valley Foundation is subsidizing the fees for Girls Hockey to encourage participation and grow our program! This is a fun and affordable way to participate in a lifelong sport. Girls Hockey is a supplemental program offered in addition to our co-ed Cutthroats youth hockey team. Girls can participate in both programs. New players also welcome!
All players are required to register with USA Hockey to participate in youth hockey at Kotler Ice Arena. USA Hockey Fees cover supplemental insurance for players and support the growth of hockey in Idaho.

This can include coaching, supporting tournaments, fundraising, being a team manager, and more. You will need to agree to the commitment during the registration process. You will also be required to pay a $75 volunteer deposit and at the end of the season you will be reimbursed once you meet your obligation.
