This new program has two options.

  1. An In-House program held entirely at South Metro Sports with no Saturday or Sunday commitments. This will be a lower-cost, lower-commitment option than what is available in the area.
  2. All of the In-House program, plus a Travel Add-On which adds additional practices and home and away games against other programs in the Buckeye Travel Hockey League.

Spring League starts April 11. Use the link above to find all of the details about the Spring League, including rules, schedules and results.

We are gauging interest in House and Travel teams for the 2021-2022 season. That starts with great coaching. If you are interested in coaching at any level with us in 2021-2022, please fill out our coaching application.
