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 www.usahockeyregistration.com 

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 complete the IGNITION program will be able to join the DEVO program.
