Teton Valley Youth Hockey is a recreational league designed to help kids ages 4 – 14 develop as hockey players while enjoying a fun winter activity on ice. Our focus is on skill development, teamwork, exercise, and fun!  To find out more about Youth Hockey & TVF Girls Hockey visit our Teton Valley Foundation Cutthroats Page.


We offer supplemental girls’ hockey for ages 4 – 14 on Sundays. That means your daughter can play on her regular coed team and still sign up to play with other girls!  Learn more about Girls Hockey here.

Learn to Skate  – (Ages 4 – 10) This class is appropriate for budding skaters of all kinds including eager hockey players who want to hone their skating skills or striving figure skaters.  First time beginners and novice skaters with elementary skills will both benefit from honing basic skating technique. Students can use EITHER hockey or figure skates.

Intermediate Skating (Ages 6 – 12) is for kids who already have fundamental skating skills and want to begin narrowing their focus on figure skating technique in particular. Intermediate students will strengthen their basic skills, like power strokes, and cover first jumps and first spins. Figure skates only.
