Skills, more midweek practices and boot camp highlight 2016-17

Continuing to increase our focus on skills development for skaters and goalies, adding more midweek practices and introducing a pre-season boot camp, King Philip Walpole Youth Hockey is excited to announce plans for the 2016-17 season, and to open team registration.

Registration now is open for all players interested in participating on KPW travel teams during the 2016-17 season. All players must register by April 12, 2016, and submit the initial tuition payment to be considered for a team. Players interested in the Mite Development Program, Instructional Program or Girls In-House Program can register now as well.

Highlights of the 2016-17 season include...

  • Players on full-season travel teams at the Mite, Squirt, Pee Wee, Bantam, Girls U8, Girls U10, Girls U12 and Girls U14 level will receive more than 75 hours of on-ice training and play 25-30 games over the course of the regular season.
  • Short-season Midget, U16 and U19 teams will play approximately 12 games, with two practices per week, to prepare players for the start of the high school season.
  • Mite Development Progam players will practice twice and play one half-ice game a week in KPW's in-house league, with 20-22 games over the course of the season.
  • Skater skills: All full-season travel teams will have skills sessions two or three times per month with Pro Ambitions and Rogers Edge, rotating between sessions focused on overall hockey skills and those focused on power skating and technique.
  • Goalie skills: Goalies on full-season teams will have 12 goalie skills sessions with StopIt, in addition to on-ice training with KPW goalie coaches.
  • KPW has reached an agreement with the managers of the new rink being built in the innovative New England Sports Village in Attleboro, providing our families with another best-in-class facility and, importantly, more midweek ice for practices and skills sessions.

The tuition for 2016-17 teams also is little changed from last season:

  • Instructional and Girls In-House Programs: $499
  • Mite Development Program: $1,129
  • Girls U8: $999
  • Travel Mites: $1,629
  • Squirts, Pee Wees, Bantams, Girls U10, Girls U12 and Girls U14: $1,849
