Program descriptions

TRAVEL HOCKEY

Travel hockey is the most competitive level of hockey offered by the Kenosha Komets at the Tier 2 level.   Our travel teams play in both the Wisconsin Amateur Hockey Association (WAHA) and the Northern Illinois Hockey League (NIHL) or other age and skill appropriate league.

Travel team players are those looking to move beyond house-league – for more competitive hockey and progressive skill development.  Players are selected during a tryout process held before the start of the hockey season (mid-late August).  Teams practice 2-3 times per week and play in 1-2 games per weekend. The season runs from September – March. 

Wisconsin Amateur Hockey Association (WAHA)

WAHA is a highly competitive state league for Wisconsin based teams.  The Komets travel in Region 5 which encompasses most of Southeastern WI.  Each team is classified by skill level as A, B & C.  WAHA skates teams at all age brackets from Squirt through Midget. 

Northern Illinois Hockey League (NIHL)

NIHL is the 2nd largest travel hockey league in the country.  Travel is mainly in the Chicago metropolitan area.  Each team is classified by skill level as – Premier Select, Elite, Gold, Silver and Bronze.  NIHL skates teams at all age brackets from Mite thru Midget.

We will offer two dates for the meeting:  August 19 at 6:00 pm and August 31 at 10:00 am.  Groups will be split into age groups.  The meetings will take place at the Kenosha Ice Arena.  If for some reason you are not able to attend the one assigned to your child's age group, please plan to attend the other date.

Topics covered will include code of conduct, volunteer hours commitment, information on tryouts, details of the team selection process, fundraising opportunities, Club Wide Raffle Ticket Fundraiser, and other events.  The Kenosha Komets is a volunteer organization and we are dependent upon the commitment of our volunteers and support of our fundraising opportunities.  This includes team raffles as well as our keynote, organization-wide raffle fundraising event that takes place during our fall season and awarded at our annual awards banquet.  More details will be shared further in the registration under fundraising.
