REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN!
Registration for Kent Valley Hockey Association for the 2019-2020 season is now open. With the NHL coming to Seattle, there could not be a more exciting time to be involved in the great sport of hockey! Last season saw more Learn to Play hockey participants than ever before and some teams filled up and had waiting lists. KVHA encourages everyone to register early as that is the best way to secure your spot and it helps the association plan ahead for the season. Due to increased numbers in our younger divisions, rates for 8U and 10U have gone down substantially! To encourage early enrollment, players registered in the month of May will receive additional discounts as an incentive to register now. These discounts expire May 31st so don’t miss out.

Learn to play the greatest sport on earth. Learn to Play Hockey! Directed by Molly Doner
Hockey is more than just a game. It’s a lifestyle. Our beginner Adult Learn to Play hockey program is for hockey players 18 years or older with little to no experience. Our goal is to expand the hockey community and prepare players for the next step in their hockey career, to join the Greater Seattle Hockey League! Each week our professional hockey instructors will teach the most important skills and drills that are necessary to play the game. Every session will start with power skating and edgework to develop and improve skating ability, including forward stride, power turns, stopping, crossovers, and backwards skating. Stickhandling and shooting exercises will be used to improve puck control and scoring ability. In addition, participants will perform USA Hockey approved drills that are proven to enhance Hockey IQ and on-ice awareness. Competitive and fun small area games/scrimmages will be supplemented to end each skate. In just 8 short weeks you will be ready to play in the big leagues!
What about all the equipment? Each player must have all hockey gear as required by USA Hockey.

While hockey players are becoming faster and more skilled, the importance of in tight game play is increasing. For graduates of our Learn to Play program, this is your first chance to play in games! Participants will be placed on teams, given a jersey and socks, and will play cross-ice games against other players their age. Our organized 3 on 3 program teaches players a variety of necessary skills in order to excel and thrive in the skill-based era of hockey today. Whether beginner or advanced, cross ice game play develops the player’s ability to protect the puck, support the puck carrier, communicate with teammates, stickhandle in tight areas, shoot a quick release shot, play heads up hockey, and most importantly, have fun and compete in supervised gameplay. Each Sunday for twelve weeks, players will play three twenty-five minute games. There are no slapshots or bodychecks allowed and all players must be fully equipped according to USA Hockey rules. Equipment rental is available.

Power Skating - Directed by Molly Doner
More than any other skill, skating ability is cited as the most important single attribute that a hockey player can possess. If you can’t skate well, you will struggle to advance in the game. In order to improve your skating, you need the proper technique and lots of repetition. Skate Like a Girl will teach you the proper techniques, drills, and skills that you need to become an excellent skater. The class will cover edge control, stride technique & extension, the relationship between power and knee-bend, hockey turns, acceleration, crossovers, backwards technique, agility drills, balance, and much more.
