Our 8U BTHL (Buckeye Travel Hockey League) program is designed for those players who have played at least a year of our 8U House program or equivalent. It may also be appropriate for players who have completed Learn to Play, with the recommendation of the Learn to Play coach. While all of our 8U players will practice and have in-house scrimmages together, this program will offer additional practices and home and away jamborees as part of the Buckeye Travel Hockey League 8U program.
Players who will still be 8 or younger as of December 31 of the current year, and have completed a year of 8U or have been recommended by their LTP coach to play at this level.
October through February. Practices and scrimmages schedules are TBD. Home and away jamborees on the weekends.
Practices, scrimmages, and home jamborees are at South Metro Sports. Away jamborees could be in Ohio, Indiana, Kentucky, or West Virginia.
Tryouts / Evaluations
Players will be evaluated at the first practices and teams formed at that time.
Jerseys and socks ARE INCLUDED in the listed prices.
We are an affiliate of USA Hockey, which means a valid current season USA Hockey registration is also required. Cost varies based on the player's age.
