YOUTH HOCKEY

LET'S GO

YOUTH HOCKEY LEAGUES

Knoxville Amateur Hockey Association is the official youth hockey association for Cool Sports and our Youth Hockey programming. We offer leagues, programs and clinics for ages 4, all the way through age 18. Hockey develops life skills that build a foundation for a child’s confidence, pride, focus and responsibility. Starting with the bonds created in the locker room to the relationships formed on the ice, hockey creates friendships that last a lifetime. Hockey’s unique structure ensures that your child learns to love the game while promoting a healthy lifestyle, social wellness and mental well-being. The encouraging environment hockey provides helps kids grow as both hockey players and people.

Our hockey programs are run by Cool Sports and teams play as the “Knoxville Predators.” For those new to hockey, check out our 8U Hockey Roadmap.

Before you register, you will need your player’s current USA Hockey ID. If you need to update, go to www.usahockeyregistration.com.

Family discounts are available for multi-player families. Please contact the hockey department to receive your coupon code.
