Communication

We use email as our communication tool.  To receive emails, make sure you have a profile within ICH and link to your player's profile.

The website is also a key source of important information.  Be sure to check the calendar often.
 

Participation

We need all families to volunteer for a variety of tasks throughout the season.  There will be opportunities to learn how to run the clock, keep score, monitor locker rooms and other information shared throughout the season to expand your volunteer options.

 

Practices

Please be sure be dressed and ready to go at the scheduled start time.

Travel team practices for Squirt age and up begin in October.  Full season practices start in November, including Mini-Mite/Mite practices. 

 

Travel Teams

There will be both tournament events and games with other associations.

Each team has a manager who can answer questions regarding the travel team's schedule.  They will also be asking for other volunteers to help with the many tasks associated with each event.

 

Discipline Policy

In locker rooms, on the ice, and anywhere else, skaters are expected to conduct themselves as described within USA Hockey SafeSport Policy.  Skaters and their parents/family/fans represent ICH and are expected to behave in a respectful, responsible, and appropriate manner.
 

Need-based scholarships are available.
