We are a non-profit youth hockey association offering programs for children ages 3-18 years old. Programs include travel teams from the Mite through Midget level, and a TYKES (Teaching Young Kids the Essentials of Skating) program. The Ice Dogs skate at Mark Edward Freitas Ice Forum, the home of the UCONN Huskies.
If you have a future hockey star in your family and want to learn more about our program, please click on TYKES (Teaching Young Kids the Essentials of Skating) or contact us. No prior skating experience is necessary for TYKES.
