This new program has two options.

  1. An In-House program held entirely at South Metro Sports two times a week (Tuesday after 5:30pm and Sunday after 3:30pm). 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.

The Dayton Icehounds are excited to host USA Hockey Try Hockey for Free events, which gives kids ages 4 – 9 a chance to get on the ice with coaches and give hockey a try… FOR FREE!

The next Try Hockey For Free event will be held Sunday September 12, 2021 from 2:15pm - 4:00pm at South Metro Sports. Registration is now open.
