Youth Bandy


Why are kids flocking to bandy? Well, first of all it is a lot of fun. They get to be outdoors on the ice with friends and playing semi-structured games. Because the game is considered a "non-contact" sport, parents love it as the risks of concussion injuries seen in hockey are greatly minimized. There are no unforgiving boards to crash into at high speed either. A great sport for developing hockey skills while also minimizing injury potential.

We are very excited to announce our Sunday night 11U and 14U leagues. These leagues have been set up to have minimal conflict with youth hockey schedules - allowing kids to get outside and play 'Hockey with a Ball' (as it is called in Russia). Also, we recognize kids may have conflicts...so this league is very laid back about attendance and more focused on getting outside and having fun while learning to play the great game of bandy!

Here are the brief details:

FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS - A fantastic program for beginner kids and families. Most participants are 8 and under, but if you are slightly older it is not a big deal. Most Friday nights at 6:00pm beginning November 11th and running through winter. We have free time from 6:00pm - 6:30pm...skating and stickhandling skills from 6:30pm-7:00pm (featuring former 1976 USA Hockey Team and former USA Bandy player Bob Lundeen)...and from 7:00pm to 7:30pm we divide them up by skill level and let them play! Oh...and parents, bring your skates. From 6:00pm - 7:00pm you can skate around the outside oval and enjoy the evening. Click on the registration link below.

11U League - Most Sunday nights @5:30pm throughout the winter beginning November 13th. This league is a fun league for both kids that play winter hockey and kids just looking for a winter activity. It is co-ed and open for all skill levels. For hockey players, some of the world's best hockey players developed their skating, stickhandling, and teamwork skills through playing bandy. This league will help you develop those skills while having a great time. Register Below....
