Ice Bears Youth Travel Hockey League
The Ice Bears travel hockey program is designed for players with experience in the sport and who are ready to take their game to the next level. The Ice Bears League play takes place in the fall/winter and also at a reduced spring season. The primary Ice Bears season takes place in the fall/winter. An abbreviated spring season is also available and a great starting point for new players. The co-ed Ice Bears teams compete against other organizations as part of the Northwest Hockey League (NWH) and the All-Girls Ice Bears team competes in the NIHL.
All Ice Bears teams average two practices and one game a week in the fall/winter and one day a week in the spring.
