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 – Elite, Gold, Silver and Bronze.  NIHL skates teams at all age brackets from Mite thru Midget.
