Information for New Families

All Families: Please Register with USA Hockey and SPAYHA by following the Registration tab on the left side of the home page.

All Families: If you are unsure what position your child will be playing, choose F/D.

Intro and U8 Families: Be sure to follow the EQUIPMENT tab for dates and times of Equipment hand-out or turn-in at our rink, Ice Hawks Arena. 

Intro and U8 Families: Bring your paperwork to Equipment handout at the beginning of the season or put it under the office door.

Squirt-Bantam Families: Bring your paperwork to your Team Rep once Teams are established after evaluations.

All Families: If you are looking to find someone to ask questions about specifics in a particular area, please go to Board tab and find the person who is knowledgable in the specific area you have questions on.

Intro and U8 Families: Skaters will need to provide skates and stick. U8 skaters will need skates, stick, and helmet. SPAYHA provides all the other equipment needed for your skater free of charge unless it is not returned when the season or session has ended. Check the EQUIPMENT tab on the homepage for hand-out or turn-in hours. It is extremely important to turn in your skaters equipment when season or session has ended to keep the equipment rental FREE for everyone. 

All Families: Always check the RINK SCHEDULES tab for updated practice times as they can change. 

Intro and U8 Families: An extra pair of sweat pants or pajama pants are recommended to put over the shin pads instead of hockey socks for kids ages 3-6.

INTRO: The season begins with the first session in late October. You must be registered before you can get on the ice. The second session begins in late December. If you only paid for First session and would like to continue to Second session, please register for Second session on the REGISTRATION tab. Skaters that have not registered for Second session will not be allowed to participate in Second session until registered. Practices are usually on Tuesday's at 6p and Saturday's at 9am. 

U8: The season begins in October and goes into March. You must be registered before you go on the ice. Practices are usually on Tuesday's at 5p, Saturday's at 7a or 8a, and Sunday afternoons.

Squirt-Bantams: Tune Ups/3v3 (pre-season ice time) begins in August. It is not mandatory to sign up for these sessions, however, it is beneficial so your skater understands the drills for evaluations. Skills/Drills will be on the first night of the week and 3v3 will be on the second night of the week. We do have a 3v3 tournament in August which should not be confused with tune ups/3v3. Many emails will go out for the tournament. Please follow the schedule listed on the right side of the homepage of the website for the tune up/3v3 session schedule. Evaluations will be either the second or third week in October. The schedule will be posted on Rink Schedules Tab. Each skater will need to purchase and wear Black Game Socks for evaluations. They will be available for purchase the first night of evaluations prior to the start for $20 cash or check to SPAYHA. You will receive a call from your coach after evaluations and teams are made. The first practice is usually the Saturday after Evaluations. Please check Rink Schedules.

All Families: Please check and read all emails that are sent from SPAYHA, "NO REPLY". 

All Families: Our rink is run by families just like you. We all volunteer and help clean up after others. Please take it upon yourself to grab a broom and dustpan from the maintainence room to pick up any messes in the rink including the stands. The mop is only for liquid spills. We do not use the mop to clean the mat floors as it spreads sand and dirt under skates. This also includes cleaning all bathrooms. If you are not sure where something is, please check the maintainence room first, then ask if it is not located there. The maintainence room is located down the hallway from locker rooms 1 and 3.

All Families: Please check the VOLUNTEER PAGE tab for information about volunteer hours for U8 families and travel teams(Squirt-Bantam).

U8 Families: The Cross Ice Clash Tournament will be held January 27-28, 2018. U8 skaters will participate in the Tournament and will play Teams from other cities.  

Intro Families: The "Intro Rockin' Jamboree will be held Saturday March 10, 2018. Intro skaters will play in the Tournament against each other and other Intro skaters in Wisconsin. This is a FUN end of season cross ice jamboree for all skaters under 6 years of age. All skaters will receive medals. Food, raffles, games, and much more! More details will be sent during the season.

Intro and U8 Families: Concessions are usually open on Saturday mornings and most league play dates for U8.
