Junior Chiefs is for skaters looking to transition to the Chiefs travel program in the years to come. This program is supplemental to the 8U program. All Jr Chiefs players will play in the 8U program on Tuesdays and Saturdays but will have extra ice time, at an added cost.
While practices will be faster and more demanding, all players are welcome, as kids develop at different rates. Throughout the season the team will look to use what they've learned in practices to compete in a few 3v3 tournaments around the state. (All MAHA Jamborees and similar events will always be part of the general 8U program. )
The ultimate goal is to give kids a small taste of travel hockey and make it easier for them to transition to the next level of play.
Note: This is not an extended tryout or mandatory in order to play travel at the Squirt level.
