Spring 2023 Basics:
First time youth players are eligible to rent equipment from Asheville Hockey at no cost. (Available sizes are limited) - gear will be distributed day of evaluations. If you need gear contact firstname.lastname@example.org
We ask that you start with skates and a helmet. Hockey has a lot of equipment; it can be overwhelming. If you can get more, please do. If not, our loaner program is perfect!

All of our divisions are coed and non contact. The Asheville Hockey League does its best to place players in the appropriate divisions. Players who have excelled and whose skills warrant it may have the option to play up.
Mites/Squirts- The players in these divisions generally range in age from about 5 to 9. The Mite/Squirt Divisions are geared towards new players who have not played before and those improving their game to get to the next level, and focuses on teaching the fundamentals of skating, shooting, passing and team play.
PeeWee- Players in this group generally range from 10-12 years of age.
Bantam- Players in this group generally range from 13-16 years of age.
Teams generally practice once a week for 1 hour and play one game a week, contingent on the weather.
Our Squirts\Mites division generally will practice on Mondays or Tuesdays from 6-7pm and will play games on weekends (day/time TBD)
Our PeeWee division teams generally practice on Monday and Tuesday evenings from 7-8pm and games are held on weekends (day/time TBD)
Our Bantam division practices on Monday evenings at 7-9pm. Games are held on weekends (day/time TBD)
Generally when it is below freezing games will be postponed - pucks crack in the cold weather and we cannot play.
Our rink is open air and rain will force cancellation of games. Coaches will contact teams as cancellations occur.
If it is raining and warm enough practice will be held in shoes. Game days may be practice days if it rains, and games may be made up on practice nights if it is a necessity. Coaches will contact teams on delays/cancellations/adjustments of schedules.
