Making the good life in Teton Valley even better.
Our Youth Hockey program is made great by the families that support us! By participating in our program,
you commit to a minimum of 5 volunteer hours, that are served either during a fundraising event or during a
home tournament. Additionally, our parent code of conduct needs to be read,
signed and returned to your team manager before the first practice.
New To Hockey
Parents have many questions when entering the hockey world and we’ve got some great resources for you!
Gear: The required pieces of gear to play hockey are as follows: Helmet, Mouthguard, Shoulder pads, Elbow pads, Gloves, Breezers (pants), Shin guards, Hockey socks, Skates, a Hockey bag and a Stick! Teton Valley Foundation has a supply of rental gear which includes a Helmet, Shoulderpads, Elbow pads, Gloves, Breezers, and Shin guards. Season long rental packages are $75 and available for Squirt players and younger (10U, 8U and 6U players). Each player is required to provide their own Mouthguard, Skates, Hockey socks and Stick.
Skill requirements: We request that each beginning skater has experience skating and is able to skate forward and backward before joining. If beginning skaters are enrolled in a session of “Youth learn to skate” simultaneously during the first session of U8 or U6 programming, and the coaches do not deem the skater unsafe during practice, we will allow skaters who are unable to skate backwards.
Age Classification: USA Hockey age classifications are by calendar year (January 1 to December 31). Whatever age your child is when the season starts on October 16th, 2023 is the age division they will be in for the entirety of the season. If you have questions or need clarification on which age division your child should register for, please email YHDirector@Tetonvalleyfoundation.org.
