KMHA Under-11 (U11) Recreational and Development Programs
Kamloops Minor Hockey Association would like to welcome new and returning members to U11 hockey. U11 is divided into two groups, Recreational and Development. This page is for Recreational hockey. For more competitive hockey, please visit the U11 Development page.
U11 Recreational: This is a recreational level of hockey. Players in the Recreational Program will be evaluated. Using these evaluations, the players will be drafted on to teams, with our best efforts to create balanced teams. The year will consist of a weekly shared practice with another U11 Recreation team, (rotating between Mon, Tues, Wed and Thurs in the past) and a weekend game. There will be one home tournament for the team and they may attend up to two away tournaments, if the coach and parents/team agree to do so. Due to the difficulty of being accepted into tournaments, there may be instances where a coach (or manager) has felt it necessary to apply to tournaments prior to team approval. Each team will have a team budget to offset expenses for the season. Typically, each player will pay a team fee of up to $300, depending on tournaments and exhibition games. There is minimal travel, in the form of occasional exhibition games, and lower expense at this level; and players will experience great hockey while having fun. There is a competitive element to the league with playoffs being played at the end of the season with our two top teams playing in “The Night of Champions”.
