Registration open for 50th anniversary 2019-20 KPW teams

Registration now is open for all players interested in participating on King Philip Walpole Youth Hockey teams during the 2019-20 season, the program's 50th anniversary.

KPW  is excited to announce plans for the 2019-20 season, which will feature a continued focus on skills development through partnerships with Pro Ambitions, Stop-It Goaltending and Goaltending Development Services; preseason boot camps for all full-season teams; and league membership at levels appropriate for all of our teams — all while again maintaining tuition at the same costs as 2018-19.

All players must register by April 1, 2019, and submit the initial tuition payment to be considered for a team, and all players who register will be placed on a team.

Players interested in the 8U Development Program, Instructional Program or Girls In-House Program can register now as well.

Highlights of the 2019-20 season include...

  • Players on full-season boys and girls travel teams at the 8U, 10U, 12U and 14U levels will receive more than 75 hours of on-ice training and play approximately 30 games over the course of the regular season.
  • Short-season 18U teams will play approximately 12 games, with two practices per week, to prepare players for the start of the high school season.
  • 8U 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 10-12 small-group skills sessions throughout the season with Pro Ambitions.
  • Goalie skills: Goalies on 10U, 12U, 14U and 18U teams will participate in goalie skills sessions with StopIt or GDS.
  • KPW will continue to practice out of rinks in Foxboro, Franklin, Norfolk and Attleboro, ensuring we have enough ice for all of our hockey needs and our families can have access to a variety of local facilities.

The tuition for most 2019-20 age groups has not changed from the 2018-19 season:

  • Instructional: $499
  • 8U Development and Girls In-House Program: $1,199
  • 8U and Girls 8U: $1,699
  • 10U, 12U, 14U, Girls 10U, Girls 12U and Girls 14U: $1,899
