USA HOCKEY MEMBERSHIP REQUIREMENT

All youth hockey programs (from development to travel) require each skater to obtain a USA Hockey Membership.   The membership provides training to coaches and referees, funds to the state governing body (WAHA), and most importantly it insures each participating skater.  You can obtain the membership before you begin the registration process below by visiting https://www.usahockeyregistration.com/login_input.action

Otherwise you can wait until prompted during the Development Program registration process.

More information about the USA Hockey Membership and Registration can be found at http://www.usahockey.com/membership

Ignition (Learn to Skate with Hockey)

Program Overview / Information

The Komet's IGNITION program is the first stop for players who are interested in hockey but have no prior skating experience.  The program focuses on the fundamental skating skills required for hockey players.  The goal of the IGNITION program is to remove skaters from using skating aids and prepare skaters for our DEVO program where they will focus on basic hockey skills including: skating, shooting, passing, etc.

 Players who successfully graduate from the IGNITION program will be able to join the DEVO program.

Need Loaner Equipment?

Players in need of equipment can be sized up for equipment prior to the first day of each session. The loaner equipment is complimentary for the player's first year; as long as the player remains in the Komets Development program. The loaner equipment is based on an honor system and survives because of donated equipment from our members.

Equipment Fitting

The Komets have teamed up with local sporting goods store Play It Again Sports to provide the loaner equipment fitting for the Development program. All equipment fitting will now take place at their store location; 4017 75th St, Kenosha, WI 53142.

Beginning on Monday, August 27th, skaters can be fitted for loaner equipment any time during their normal business hours; Monday-Saturday, 10am-7pm & Sunday 11am-4pm. Just stop in and let them know you’re registered in the Komets Development program and they will fit you with our loaner equipment. Loaner Equipment will still remain free to borrow. A $50 deposit check, post-dated April 1st, 2019 is still required to borrow Komets loaner equipment.

 

We do not currently provide the following loaner equipment:*

·    Hockey sticks –Hockey sticks can be purchased at Play It Again Sports during your equipment fitting or at any sporting goods store. We recommend wooden, left or right handed (straight blade) sticks for the skaters in our program, which cost around $20.
