King Philip Walpole Youth Hockey 2018-19 Teams

For nearly 50 years, King Philip Walpole Youth Hockey has been developing boys and girls youth hockey players of all skill levels, from pre-kindergarten through high school, in a fun, safe and encouraging environment.

Our teams play in several different conferences, which offers each player the opportunity to compete at the appropriate skill level, from our Introductory programs through our highly competitive ‘A’ teams.

All full-season boys' and girls' travel teams from 8U through 14U will enjoy two practices each week, 10 skills sessions with Pro Ambitions and one or two games per weekend, while KPW's Instructional, Girls In-House and Mite Development offer a different balance of on-ice activities.

Practices for travel teams begin in late August so players are prepared for the start of competitive games in mid-September, and playoffs usually conclude by early April. The short-season 18U seasons, which are crafted to prepare players for the start of their high school team season, conclude in mid-November.
