FAQ’s: What is the purpose of house league for travel players?  Travel players (Mite through Peewee) also get to play House League on a weekly basis as part of their travel tuition.  House league provides the opportunity for players to have lots of fun competing against their friends and working on their creative play. Mites, Squirts and at times the Peewees all use smaller ice surfaces during house league to enhance skill development and decision-making which is critical for your child’s long term success in the game. This ADM model is endorsed by USA Hockey and many of the top NHL and college coaches throughout the country.

My child is a goalie, does he get training and any discounts? Yes, Mite A through Bantam Full-time Goalies, as well as Midget SNEHC goalies will receive training at RIHA as well as reduced tuition. All travel teams will also assign a goalie, specific coach, to work with your child on the ice during the season.

I hear a lot about skating coaches performing training for other leagues, do the Jr. Blues and Wave have any training? New for 2019/20 season: All Blues and Wave players will have skating and skills sessions with Overspeed Hockey and Toby O’Brien throughout the season (12 on ice sessions). They will also have a preseason and midseason clinic included in their tuition. Toby will focus on over speed training, edges, balance, small area games, puck possession, puck support and much more! We will push our players to get out of a comfort zone to reach their maximum potential. All coaches will correct our players during each session.  We will focus on proper techniques that will enhance our players skill set.  We are excited for our players and coaches to learn and improve with Toby and Overspeed Hockey!

 *Teams fielded will be subject to the number of players enrolled.
