KPW 8U Development, Instructional programs accepting players

The King Philip Walpole Youth Hockey 8U Development and Instructional Programs are accepting registrations for young players interested in participating in our introductory hockey programs.

  • The KPW instructional hockey program has been introducing new players to the sport for more than 30 years using the principles of the USA Hockey American Development Model, which focuses on skills development and age-appropriate instruction. This program, with practices at 9:40 a.m. Saturday and Sundays at Foxboro Sports Center beginning Oct. 14, is meant for boys and girls born between 2006-2012 who have some skating experience and now are ready to learn hockey and skating skills. The program ensures new players have fun while developing their hockey skills, and we introduce age-appropriate half-ice games near the end of the season to help put the skills they learn into action. Players are required to wear full hockey equipment and have a stick, and will be grouped with comparably skilled players to build their confidence and hockey ability. The full-season tuition is $499.
  • The KPW 8U Development Program is the first step for players who have completed an instructional hockey program. Players will be evaluated during October practices beginning Oct. 7 and then divided into balanced teams before games begin Oct. 28. These teams will compete in our in-house half-ice league Saturday afternoons at Norfolk Arena, which also includes teams from surrounding programs, and also will practice Fridays and Sundays. The full-seasn tuition is $1,199.

Register online for either program.

Try Hockey for Free Day Saturday, Nov. 4, at Norfolk Arena

King Philip Walpole Youth Hockey invites boys and girls between the ages of 5 and 12 to Norfolk Arena on Saturday, Nov. 4, for a Try Hockey for Free clinic to experience ice hockey for the first time.

New players will be introduced to hockey in a fun, positive and safe environment. No prior experience is necessary, and the first 40 players to register will receive a free USA Hockey jersey, goodie bag and more. Participants should have some skating experience and be able to support themselves on skates, but no prior hockey experience is needed and a limited amount of equipment is available to borrow. At the very least, players must wear a helmet and gloves.

King Philip Walpole Youth Hockey is a non-profit community hockey organization for boys and girls from Norfolk, Plainville, Walpole and Wrentham. Players learn from USA Hockey-certified volunteer coaches who help new players build confidence and develop fundamentals through a focus on small-area games, skating skills and fun.

The Try Hockey for Free Day will begin with registration at 5 p.m. and includes an hour of hockey at 6 p.m. and then a pizza party before Norfolk Arena’s open skate at 7 p.m.

Interested players must register prior to the event by visiting tryhockeyforfree.com/7781. For more information, please contact KPW president Randy Yanoshak at 571-215-7729.
