2015/2016 Concession Sign Up
Sign up for this season's 2015/2016 concessions time slots on
Volunteerspot (see instructions below). It is important to remember
that the concession stand is a significant fundraiser for Wildcat
Youth Hockey and will help offset other costs and the potential
need to raise skater fees in the future. If the time slots assigned
to Wildcat Youth Hockey go unfilled, or we have people that do not
show up for their shift, the club will be charged a fee by the
rink. This not only reduces our take on concessions, but negatively
impacts everyone's experience at the rink. We are encouraging all
families to follow the instructions below to sign up for times that
you want to work.
As the season approaches, we will open registration for
volunteer spots. The process is as follows:

New to Hockey - Learn to Skate or Learn to Play
Are you interested in introducing your child to skating and the
sport of ice hockey? If so, either the Learn to Skate (LTS)
or Learn To Play (LTP) program is ideal.
The LTS program has two sessions. Each session runs
about 10 weeks with a 1 hour practice session per week. Practices
are typically on Saturdays starting at 8:00 AM. Skates and a
hockey or bike helmet is all that is needed.
here for more information about Learn to Skate.
Session 2 is now open for
registration. Session 1 remains opens as well as we can do a
pro-rated fee for late arrivals.
Children continue the fundamentals of skating with
added hockey skills and scrimmages during practice. Full hockey
equipment is required. There is one, 1 hour practice per
All WYHA programs
Once the schedule is set you will
be able to access it from the website (
A USA hockey registration number is required, which is free
for kids 6 or under, as of Dec. 31. If your child is over 6
years of age and you are registering for LTS please contact our
registrar prior to registration to see about possibly
waiving the USA hockey fee. The USA hockey fee is required
for all other levels.
Registration is open now for the LTS (session 1) and the
LTP program! Once the season starts there will be an opportunity to
move your skater from LTS to LTP or to U6 or U8 (they must be the
correct birth year for U6 and U8). You should talk to one of
the coaches at the LTS or LTP level about doing this.
2015-2016 Season Registration Remains Open
Registration remains open for the 2015/2016 season for
divisions LTP, U6, U8, and LTS Sessions 1 & 2.
